Re: 2019 Midwinters - Who's Going

The "Y-Flyer group plus Jason" will be there with the addition of Shelby Hatcher, another Y person who got a Force 5 earlier this summer.  Peter Anderson is planning to come again as well.  So there's 7 right there.    big_smile

Re: 2019 Midwinters - Who's Going

Why do people keep going to this? It is in February and they don't even have any snow! You end up having to drink those rum drinks looking out over the bay and the beach. You know you'll have to eat some hogfish at Mrs Mac's. Just don't understand the attraction? Chris, any ideas?

What I think I know  roll  is that myself, Dan S., Mark A., Frank L.are all making the trip from Michigan.  What I hear is that several from the LaSalle, Ontario group are planning to make the trip as well.  Maybe some others?  We will see.

Re: 2019 Midwinters - Who's Going

I think stating why people keep going is a tough one. I always advise people of the risks of Key Largo in February. Here is my list of risks:
1. Chance of sunburn due to all the direct sunlight.
2. Risk of injury from coconuts falling from palm trees
3. Frozen Rum Runners and risk of brain freeze
4. Risk of sand (coral grit) in your swim trunks
There are more risks I can state later.

Re: 2019 Midwinters - Who's Going

We may be getting another Y-Flyer guy to borrow my second boat and come down.  Gotta close the deal!    big_smile

Re: 2019 Midwinters - Who's Going

Brian, Think about the risk of having too much fun in a single week. You have to admit this is very scary for sure!
