Give us a heads up a week or so before you want to place the order with a caterer. I plan on attending.

I'm back in Seattle and ready to start working on the Boat Show CBGT. So far, there are just a few folks signed up. I have reserved the "sky lounge" at my apartment, so there is plenty of room for 30 people and a nice view.

Harvey,

My quick reply to you from Danang was a bit of a fluke. Vietnam has cell phone coverage most everywhere, but I generally lacked the time to respond. What surprised me the most about Vietnam: stop in a little store and get a new SD card, stop in a little bar and watch a live soccer game on the big screen TV. I guess I hadn't paid attention to Vietnam since the 1970's. It has to be the most capitalist "communist" country in the world.

Sorry you can't make it. Maybe I'll see you in Friday Harbor.

Mark

I'm still a go for the Sky Lounge. That'll be fun.

Due to the limited response to the Boat Show CBGT on January 25th, I'm going to cancel the reservation for the "sky lounge" in my building, but not the CBGT. There is a charge for the sky lounge and it does have room for +30 people with fridge, etc. It just doesn't seem like there is going to be enough people this year. 5 or 6 Brats would feel weird in that space. We can still use the general area, but without exclusive use. So the CBGT is still on, but there might be other residents there. Or, there is a conference room that can seat 15 and has a fridge (but no fireplace).

Now, if 20 more people sign up, I can run back down to the front desk.

Mark, I am totally surprised at the low response. The SBS has been a popular event. We had more than a busload going up to the brewery at Snoquallmy Falls. If I were able, I'd be there for sure.

Yep, I thought seating for 30 and free beer would get more responses. Oh well.

Marco - Did you want to still get fancier catered appetizers? Otherwise we all could bring a small plate* of appetizers - I would be glad to bring veggies, or meats, or cheeses or something to heat up in the microwave. Wife and I are only good for a couple hours. We likely will head up to our little town condo by kids and zoo about 8.

Or alternately, we could meet up at the boat show, and head out to a restaurant.


*my rule for potlucks, don't bring more than twice as much as you could eat it that is all you eat. No one seems to like leftovers ('cept at Thanksgiving)

I think that I'll just handle the munchies to save everyone from having to carry anything. Plenty of time to think that over.

The Boat Show has now released the official Seminar Schedule. Be sure to choose carefully which of the 265 seminars you want to attend. I might go to the Haida Gwaii seminar twice just to look at the pictures.

I just made an offer on a boat. Survey is Monday. I'm having a Google-a-thon researching everything that can go wrong. Makes one wonder what kind of idiot buys a boat.

Mark, Congrats on the new boat. Hope that all goes well for you.

Last year, I did almost 100% of my time in the classes. What a great opportunity. Worth it for sure.

I just ran through all the seminars and have them all mapped out. If it says Radar, diesel, or VHF in the title, I'm interested. I bought the full meal deal "every day" ticket just in case.

One of the things that was missing (and I think is always missing) is a MOB seminar. There is a general medical emergency seminar (fish hooks, heart attacks, broken bones, etc.), but it sure seems like it would be easy to spend an hour discussing throw bags, PDFs that have hoist rings, hand holds for boarding ladders, etc. All the emergency medical training in the world won't help if you can't get the victim back on board. Just sayin.

I've also thought that every class called something like "Onboard BBQ Basics" should have half the seminar devoted to fire extinguisher use.
