I really like those drone pictures as they give a unique perspective. Looks to me like you guys started a tradition.
Now spend the resting up so you can go back to work tomorrow and give your boss 100%.;)

A big round of applause to @bronze_10 for all the behind the scenes leg work he did to drum up interest and attendees!

We'll have to plan another one next year....just not around the same time as the Shelbyville gathering and many of us are hauling our boats out there!!

Someone was talking about fireworks on the South end of Kerr lake....perhaps a 4th of July raft up?

Kerr sounds great for the next one. How's the water temp up there? Too late to throw something together up there this year?
Definitely a kickass time, even though we didn't get home til almost 2am after the concert. Whooped today, but my skis are feeling neglected in the garage, gotta get em out on the water.

We never talked about it much but I would really like to do a Newbern to Beaufort run before the boats are winterized for the season.. we have time to get it in but I know nothing of the area or where to launch or how to navigate to beafort.... gonna kinda need someone else to help organize that one! I know we have some members in Newbern and morehead city.

I'm up for this !! @waterboy and I researched this ....I was targeting a sleepover at BA$K hotel and dockage at Jaycee park. the Morehead waterfront has plenty to offer for walking around

I'm booked 17th and 24th of Sept, and Oct 8/9 then open till hunting season.....
