    Just figured I would be social about asking. Occasionally, I may be looking for a band. St Joe is where I found and met the Phreak Show people. No, I had naught to do with the 111's this time. Maybe they weren't thrilled about the last time I judged their NA's.

    What was the name of the band? T
  3. We are looking for a new or used trailer to carry a 36.7. Any suggestions on where to look for one? Teddy

    It was light air on Monday around 0930, Alice said as much as she could, I said the rest. I spread his ashes over the water about 60/70' away from the can and tossed the bottle at the can. When we edit the video, I'll post it for you. (Getting ready to leave for Port Huron for the other Mac.) It was nice and calm. Too calm, but it was nice for the ash spreading instead of "Drop him, we have to gybe/tack NOW!" I'll miss Wally for a long time. T

    For those that knew him, The Wallenator is sailing his last Mac on Saturday on PK4. Give him a wave as we pass each other. He won't finish the race. We're dropping him off with some his friends at Can 3. At least then he can have a beer with Tom and the rest of the guys and watch us go by every year. From PK4- Sail fast and safe. See all y'all at the Island.

    He was Irish driver. No beer for Wally, though. He had an interesting history. You would have enjoyed the conversation. I always did.

    Hoghead McDunna's has a back room. Not huge. And they have been a supporter of sailing. What's wrong with Weather Mark? T

    Ok, now for something more fun. Beach volleyball! There is a prettier version of this that I attached to an email that I sent thru the LMSRF list. Paula Bersie is running the games now. Alice and I are taking a rest from producing the volleyball games on the beach this year. We may sit by the pool and drink. Or, go swimming. Alice has been doing the volleyball games since before I met her 17 years ago. (We just had our 11th wedding anniversary on Sunday. Some of you were there. Robin, I still remember your words that day. Thank you.) The Columbia Yacht Club Sail Fleet presents the annual Tri-state Challenge Join the fun…Play for rum on the beach at St.Joe… (just west of where the old club was) Grab the crew or form your own team Boat vs. boat with Mt. Gay to the winners Saturday 2-5 (MICHIGAN TIME) See y'all over there. T

    Plus whatever, Robin. Well said. Also, pretty much the discussion I had yesterday with one of our RC at CYC.

    Spring is here. PK is on D-dock. Finally. Now it's time to read "Sailing for Dummies" again and try to remember how to sail. T

    I saw Jim Helquist at Belmont this morning. He said he brought Spitfire across yesterday. He found the bottom in MI City six times with an 8' draft. Alice made the right choice to move us to the Bi-State. T

    For those that knew John Sweeney, Alice is having a memorial gathering and toast on Saturday after Verve racing from 5:30 to 6:30 on the Columbia dock. In the rail deck if it is raining. We met John thru Karen Utterback years ago. He sailed with us and on Serri when he was in town. He lived in Annapolis and Boston. He also sailed with us at KWRW and on the Bermuda Race last summer. He died this past winter. He was in his mid fifties. If you knew him, or of him, stop by. Ted

    And the Thunderhead Party at Belmont. Just in case we need another party to go to. T

    Lot's of conversations with Dick over the years. I liked him. A lot. He was quick with self deprecating humor. And equally quick with why racing is so important. And why we all need to protect racing. Alice often speaks of (her words) "How cute he was at Karen's party in Key West. Flipping burgers and dogs for all of us." He had a big smile on his face and it got bigger when we showed up with 10 crew, hangers on and more food for him to cook. Probably 10 years ago. Good party. T

    Boat? Names? The Sun Times says it was a Rhodes 19. But they gave no names. It had to be something newsworthy if Mary Dixon was talking about it on 'XRT. That's why I looked. I was hoping y'all would have details. I am glad no one was hurt. Most of the Rhodes guys are really nice. But, when you are going that slow, you have time to be nice. I guess. T
