Looks very nice :yes:

Matty - perhaps we could get you excused from that wedding obligation.
My father in law is a retired physician and might be willing to provide a note.
Although medically impossible, my kids have had the chicken pox four or five times......Each! They just keep coming down with things, especially on nice weekends.

We have some exciting things planned for the Dust-off weekend that we will be posting shortly. Tammy has put something cool together for the Donzi Ladies! Should be very fun and interesting...Get you art skills sharpened!


We also will be doing killer shirts this year! We have a very will know artist who will be doing our 20th Anniversary art work. We are really thinking out of the box on these and I'm sure everyone will lining up to get them.

Tammy wanted me to post this for all the ladies going to the Dust-Off. So please let your wives or your girlfriends know! Should be a fun time for the girls! Plus they can win an awesome prize!

Ok Ladies.....
Looking forward to seeing you all in June for the Dust Off!!
This year I wanted to do something special and silly to spend time with just the girls. So we have come up with a little arts and crafts project. Friday afternoon we will be creating our own "Port o Jane"!! In the spirit of just spending some time together and having fun. Here's the deal: We will gather in the common area of Twin Bay. Bring your own bucket/noodle and any craft supplies you want. We wi...ll spend the afternoon creating, drinking, bonding and laughing!!! But it gets better ---- this is a contest!! Our creations will be judged by not only club members but also anyone staying at Twin Bay and also at The Algonquin Saturday morning. Who ever gets the most votes will win a $100.00 Spa Finder gift card!!!!!
The winner will be announced Saturday night at dinner.
If you forget a bucket we will have extras for you. We have not had a chance for the ladies to spend some quality time together and this seems like fun! So get your creative energies flowing girls!!! Can't wait to spend some good old fashion fun together!!!! Please tag yourself and anyone else on here. See you soon!!!!!

It was a really good Dust-Off.

An awesome mix of boats and people.
Mighty Mouse, Pzazz, the Pumpkin and that was just for starters....
I only got a few pictures due to phone charging issues, but fortunately BV came through in spades (as usual) with a hundred or so on the Club's Facebook page.

Friday- Really rough and windy out of the north. Sometimes a picture doesn't convey how rough it is but Brad has one of the Saint that looks like it could be the Bismarck in the North Sea! I think only EJ and Gary made an effort to run fast when it was really snotty. Fortunately last light was almost 9:30 PM so most of us got an after dinner boat ride after a nice dinner at the Lakeside.

Saturday - Chamber of Commerce weather, as they say. Just about perfect with a real chilly Adirondack start. About 20 of us on the run, I had Bob and Joanne from Winnie along as passengers b/c their GT 21 wasn't ready - nice folks. A great lunch at the Algonquin, a long afternoon on the lake and it even warmed up enough for a quick swim - the lake is 69.4 degrees according to a friendly fisherman with a well instrumented boat at Twin Bay. A great dinner upstairs at the new Hacker Bar - lots of Adirondack IPAs and terrific horseradish w/ the prime rib. Great trivia contest and cool auction items - I won a 1960's Mercruiser full color add featuring a Formula Jr.

Sunday - the heavy rain was through but still a little drizzle till about 9:30 and then dry, mixed sunshine and much warmer - and the lake was just about empty. On the trailer by noon.

My favorite boat was the beautiful and very original '67 red/white barrel back owned by Bill and Carol from Buffalo. At first I thought it could've been Matty's old 16, then I saw the transom.

Big thanks to Scott and Tammy and our hosts at Twin Bay. Matty, you and Marie were missed, hope to see you at the picnic.

I'm guessing the blue 40th in the pics is yours? I love that color for the Anni Editions.

Can you post a link to the Facebook pics. Thanks.
