I'll more than likely be by myself

No way HoJo is going camping this early in the season

And the hotel is sold out across the river, checked months ago

Colby,
This year Tom took us back from Ponce De Leon through Efing creek shortcut. It was like a scene out of The African Queen movie, except with more knee-deep areas and more leeches.

You'll love it.

John

John, that's probably the normal way we go. lol. And yes, some of those back creeks are interesting! Late Edit. Ok, looking at my charts there is an Eph Creek, and it's not a short cut. Or maybe it is depending on how you guys went. lol. I'll have to check with Tom later, and plot it out. I bet the water has to be high enough though. Colby Mr. Green

We've decided to come after all.
Why not dash from northern Wisconsin to Florida!
What's retirement for, anyway?
Looking forward to it.

Heading back to the Hontoon gathering with my Angler 19. Time to learn some new CDory tricks from the pros! Since I donít have a lot of room on the boat, I just booked a room at the Riviera Resort and Marina about a mile away.

Canít wait!

Looking forward to my first gathering. Not sure how to sign up. If someone can give me instruction at the appropriate time, it would be appreciated. Best contact is drawstring1530@mac.com

Have a good Christmas.

How to sign up. On the home page near the top you will see a horizontal list of links. The fifth one over is Event Signups. Enter there and you will see ďJoin a groupĒ sign up and your set.

We are again looking forward to meeting the new attendees and of course the ones that keep coming back to enjoy the St. Johnís River.

We always have a morning of boat seminars and I am looking for C-Brats to participate. Hint, Hint Dr Bob. In the past we have had great seminars on safety, solar, tires, first aid, boat systems and the list goes on and on.

For new comers note we have a contest on the favorite boat gadget. Be this years contest winner!

Iíve already filled up a box of odds and ends boat ďtreasuresĒ for the Clow fundraising auction. The money raised by this last year helped put in the on island laundry.

Oops....time to go fishing....till next time...Tom

I plan on making my first gathering at this event. I'm leaving the boat at home until I figure out the logistics for the next time. FYI Hontoon resort is all booked due to some college rowing teams training there.
Can't wait to experience this get together.

Chucko

Many C-Brats make Hontoon their first CBGT with their boat. The logistics are easy. Launch your boat at Ed Stone Park on HW 44 near Deland. Great ramp and easy parking. Recommend you park by the grassy area for oversized trailers if possible. Head up river (south) and you canít miss the park. Youíll miss having your C-Dory. But in any case come and join the fun.

See you there! Tom

As Tom notes, the logistics of launching your boat, parking your TV and trailer and cruising up (can't quite get that in my mind, but understand the logic) the St John's for few miles to Hontoon. Last year was my first time and it couldn't have been easier.

And I would much prefer to hang out for this event on my boat than come over from shore each day.

If the stars align and the snow gods permit it looks like I'll make it to the Gathering. Busy cutting cardboard for the auction. Meri Aura will need dockage. Do we go through the State Park system to book a space as we did last year? My dates are not firm, but I hope to arrive a few days ahead of time to enjoy putting on my favorite river.

Everyone! Less than 2 months to go till we get together at Hontoon. Iím going to ask everyone thatís attending to do two things.

1)If you have not signed up on the C-Brats Event signup please do so.

2) fill out our Online registration on this link. https://form.jotform.com/60634279765163
This will save time at the gathering.

Also....If you want to reserve a site you can do so at Reserve America

https://www.reserveamerica.com/explore/hontoon-island-state-park/FL/281038/overview

There will be ample docking available but if your looking for a favorite dock....

Donít miss out on the Best C-Dory Gathering in Florida. Yes....Itís the only one. Still looking for a couple more guest speakers.
