    Texas Gulf Coast Donzi Gathering

    A group of folks down here in Texas have been discussing a get together this summer. SO with that said... We are shooting for the weekend of June 12th; Friday - Sunday.

    I have gotten initial offers of giveaway swag for attendees from some of my vendors. I have also tentatively arranged for a helicopter and photographer Jamie Russell to take photos of our boats.

    Ideas of activities we have been throwing around would be:

    - Breakfast/partying at The Turtle Club (featured in Powerboat Magazine last year).
    - Run to Galveston Island
    - Run down intracoastal to freeport
    - raftup in Nassau Bay - Great swimming place
    - raftup at Redfish Island
    - Dining at the Kemah Boardwalk restaurant/entertainment complex

    We will have overnite slips available and also locked storage for boats and trailers at Victory Marine.
    There will be room in boats available for any of you who want to attend without a boat. The More The Merrier!

    We can also arrange transportation from Houston's Hobby Airport. There is also plenty of affordable lodging as well. This is a group effort among all of us. Feel free to post questions here OR call me at my office 713-910-2000.

    Trust me...... I got a small 18 and big blonde co-pilot. I got (us) in check. What I mean is she dosn't like to get knocked around in realy rough water so weather and water will decide what is best for the group.

    I have taken a wave or two over the bow and it's not fun!

    I am looking forward to it.

    I'll tell you what... All you Capts whose Donzi girls are a little skidish about wave jumpin', I will take on the Burden of Shuttling them around as needed.....NO, No, no need to thank me, its all part of the committment I have for making this a great event. We want EVERYONE to have a good time.

    Just remind them of Jefe's Revenge, Rule #2 - All girls have to wear bikinis....and um, RED is the preferred color .

    Speaking of RED, I will have a special gift for all ladies and Capt's who support the Red Bikini Crew

    The Honor is to Serve.

    Also, "the Committee" has been working on details of the weekend. As designated "ambassador" I will get those out very soon.

    OK folks here it is. The details on the weekend....and details they are, even got some funny looks from Capt. G for all this.

    So...I want everyone to know, we are not planning a detailed "have to be here at a certain time" thing. Really I wanted to let folks that are not in the Clear Lake area know that there is ALOT to do around here....all you gotta do is show up. We will making this up as we go along and can change anything at anytime to make the weekend more fun for everyone.

    The only real plan it to have fun with fellow Donzifiles and Arownow Heritage boat owners...and He!l, everyone else that wants to come too.

    So tell everyone about it and let's Rock Clear Lake like Crazy.

    Boat Count (7)

    Ok, so you can now see what we are thinking about. I don't mean to beat this point to death but understand that this is a "loose" get together.

    One more thing, there are a LOT of things to do here from family to adult entertainment. NASA is right down the street along with many other venues.

    So bring the kids/wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend whatever... you get the point.

    If the water stinks or someone in your party wants to do something else then its not like you are confined to the marina. Of course we hope to have a large party on the water but it is certainly your choice.

    We do hope that we all do gather for dinner Friday and Saturday though.

    That being said lets get a boat count.
