We intend to hold our 8th Annual gathering at Hontoon Island state park near DeLand Florida on March ninth to the eleventh. Florida does allow gatherings of up to 50 people at this time. We know that C-Brats are responsible people and will follow all reasonable safety precautions. Reservations MUST at this time be made online at Reserve America. No checking in at the park. Ill have more information in the near future and of course everything depends on future State Park guidelines.

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

Even if you feel uncomfortable about a gathering think about doing you own trip on the St. Johns. Its definitely an experience not to be missed!

Administrator please setup a signup and photo album....Thanks

"Thataway" already has reservations for slip 4A and I made them from the 5th thru the 12th. We may take day trips, or even an overnight trip on the weekend--but with the apparent inability to make payment when you are there (I experienced that to great inconvenience last year) make me a little gun shy, and I would rather pay an extra 20 to 40 dollars than be denied a place!

We are looking forward to safe and fun times. (We will most likely still be wearing masks and social distancing, even if there are vaccines available.). My face is ugly anyway-masks are an improvement!

Gigi will be there, and we hope that Angel will still be with us. This will be Gigi's first overnight boating experience.

It is always great to reconnect with the wonderful C Brat family!

Thanks Tom and Joyce!

Well plan on Mar 5-12. (Those ramps can get crowded on a gorgeous warm weekend).

Were finding that cruising can be a safe experience for us geezers, since it CAN be all outside with social distancing including restaurants.

Agree with Bob that even if vaccines are available that meet the FDAs requirement to be 50% effective...well, thats not worth rolling the dice. Our group can do this safely and still have a good time.

Well likely spend 2-3 weeks before or after at

https://shmarinas.com/locations/safe-harbor-calusa-island/

Under 300 miles south of Ed Stone, avg high 79-82, close to Marco Island and beaches but cheaper. Rig storage available if you wanted to do the South Florida Keys/OKEE loop (allow 14-21 days for that).

After the 21st of Dec, the days start getting longer, so summer is almost here!

Cheers!

John and Eileen

John, what does calusa island marina have for $60 a night? ($2 a foot, 30 foot minimum for transits). Vs Hontoon for $20 a night?

I believe we need an "Event sign up" fir the Hontoon gathering.

See you at Hontoon.

Ed Stone park off Hwy 44 on the St. John's River. 2999 Old New York Park Ave. Also there is a camp ground and marina on the same road (Deland/St. Johns River KOA). Park on the grass by the highway and not in the regular slots. Those are for short term like day users and fishermen. Best not on a weekend.

Short run, parts of which are no wake zones, to Hontoon.

We're going to be there for one of the weekends or both. We're living too close now not to attend, but probably can't miss school or work this year for the official days of the event. We'll at least get to see some early birds and stragglers!

Paul, you are more likely to see folks the weekend before than after, in my experience.

We got this one in the books! Sorry it took so long. It has been a while since anyone set one of these up!

Here is the signup list.
