Ok...  So, we have learned some things overnight...  One, our airmatress still has a leak.  Two, rain on a tent sounds like you are inside a popcorn maker.  Three, if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs!  The train tracks just accross the river are pretty annoying at times.

I think that the whole experience was made worse by the rain.  I only remember about 4 trains overnight, but there were a few barges too.  The rain kept us up for most of it though.

I feel like a famous person "blogging" about their lives in Hollwwood or somthing.  This is fun!  Bring Earplugs!

Should be there by 9:00 am sat. with scott GT150. We don't know if we will come by
boat or by trailer. I want to come by trailer, but not sure if there will be enough parking. Sounds like we may stop down by car friday evening and look around, check out the slips and say hi. TV should be there by then too. Should be a great time.

There is a nice ramp across the river in Red Wing if for what ever reason we run out of parking at the campground. I don't really see that as a problem as we can always park on the road too.

We should be there (hopefully) by about 8 tonight. Just finished putting the stereo from the old GT150 into the new CVX16SS. Can't wait!

Well I'm back at work already here, VERY envious of those who were going on the river again today, should be beautiful. On behalf of myself, Mike, Liz, and Perrin, a big thanks to Brian, Lisa, and everyone else who made that such a fun outing. Shoulda used some sunblock on my nose though, I  closely resemble Bozo the clown today and it's painful. It was great getting to meet everyone and WOW were there some nice boats, can't wait for next year! Thanks again!

A big thank you to Brian, Lisa, and others who labored over the many details to make the Minnesota Classic Glastron annual event enjoyable and successful. The facility was conducive to showing off the boats, talking, launching onto the river, resting, taking pictures and just about anything else.  

I will remember this weekend and relive it through the many pictures taken.

Yes, I am going to be sending a copy of the video and a thank you letter on behalf of the CGOAMN to our campground hosts.

They were exceptional and even sent pictures and an article to the Red Wing newspaper (the Republican eagle, I think).  Could everyone keep their eyes open for the article to be published in their paper.  I would love to see what they write about us.  I've been told by the campground hosts that the Red Wing paper is available online!  Thanks for keeping your eyes open!

Also, many of you know that we had a private pilot flying over our group taking pictures of the club run... Hopefully, those photo's will be available soon.

Thanks all!

We too would like to thank Brian and Lisa for all the effort it took to put this together. Pam and I had a great time and never get that kind of time in the water, not to mention with other people with a similar interest. Its also a great way to learn about the other models, parts, modifications etc.
I'd also like to make a suggestion but I am not sure how one would go about this.. I am finding it difficult to tie "screen names" to real name/faces of people I met this weekend. Maybe as part of the "member profile" a screen name, real name (unless you're shy) and even a pic of your boat.? I dont know how much work that would be. It seems many of you know each other well, so maybe its not an issue except for newbies and people with bad memories such as myself.  ???
I have over 90 pictures we took at the event and wanted to post one of us at the beach but when I do "insert image" it just sticks the letter img into my post. Also under additional options, I tried to insert a link and that didnt work either. Said it was too big. I must be doing something wrong! I'd like to share them all and we'll figure out how to do that. I will at least get them on a dvd. Some shots are not so good because of all the waves, but some are great!
Scott, it is cool to see young guys such as you and your brother Mike interested in old Glastrons. The group is very diverse!
Can't wait to see the dvd!

Ross,
Thanks again for joining us!  We really were happy to meet you!  As far as posting pictures, if worse comes to worse, you could put your pictures on a CD, and mail them to me.  I could build an archive and post them for you.

Maybe I'll try photobucket but I live in no mans land (apprently) and only have dial up. I grow old waiting for photos to download and some large emails.

With dial-up it will take some time !
If you resize them that would cut down on some up load time.
Did your camera come with photo editing software ?
If not try Picasa.

Or throw them on a CD and mail them to Brian or myself and we'll get it taken car of for you. You have a beautiful boat Ross, hope we get a chance to see it again soon.


Brian and Lisa, you guys are amazing. Not to many people have the ambition you guys have to set something like this up. Thank you!

Jamie and I had a great time. So many cool boats and people. Not to many mishaps but they are expected. Can't wait till next year.

SHORTY WHERE WERE YOU????

WOW!!!!
We didn't have our boat - we didn't know a soul - we left our dog at home - what kind of group are we going to encounter???????

We took a leap - into the unknown and hoped for the best. . . .

WOW!!!!
Steve and I had a BLAST!!!
We could not get enough. We could not get enough of the AWESOME selection of Glastrons. We could not get enough of the people.
In fact, we stayed until the bitter end, along with the doughnuts from this morning and left over pasta from last night's awesome fish fry.

Thank you EVERYONE for your hospitality!!!! We feel very fortunate to to have been apart of this AWESOME event!

We couldn't have imagined a better weekend!!

Hope we don't have to wait until next year to get together again!

Steve and Garnet

I tried to post a pic again as an attachment and it puked so I compressed it and it appeared to have puked again so I hit post and it said "already posted" so I dont what the deal is cuz that message and the pic of Jason's boat are not here! One of the best pics we have I might add. Have some pics of 1/2 boats  ;)
Gregg, doesnt compressing them degrade the quality? I assumed it would.
Jason, thanks for the compliment. The boat needs some work but will never be as pristine as yours. Maybe if and when I finish the motorhome I am redoing and get that V175 ready for next year, I'll get back to the 163
Oh well, time for bed. 4:45 rolls around a bit too soon for my liking :-[
