    This was my first year as the cruise leader so I am super happy with the way the circle looks this year. First time we put the platform in with the boats to save space in the middle with all of the large tenders.

    Thanks, it gets easier as we come up with new ideas and technology. Already thinking of faster ways to do it next year! We had a chicken wing cook off along with margaritas on the platform on Sunday. The platform had over 40 people on it tasting wings and drinking margaritas! I didn't win this time but I'll put more effort in next year!

    Once again the Sea Ray Boat Club of Northern California shows everyone else, which name owns the waterways out there. This is one cool event held each year by one the coolest boat clubs there is....of any brand.

    I was fortunate to be invited a couple years ago and had the best time with these California folks, go figure. The SRBCNC even shows us at the home office, what brand loyalty is all about. They ask for nothing upfront or in return, and still show the entire Delta region of that part of the country what brand is the fun one....I have seen it in person!

    Great job again Ken !! I know you are trying to hold the west together for us and it does not go unnoticed. If the SRBCNC ever needs more backing, you have the mother ship of CSR here and these boys are full of ammo!

    Thanks for all you do for the company I work for !!!

    Ken, that looks like a great time was had by all. Nice touch to do the Pledge of Allegiance! Especially with what's going on with that idiot on the 49ers.

    I was surprised to see the dinghies allowed inside the circle. When we do them we often have swimmers in the water so we don't allow dinghies except for the ones delivering pizzas.

    Actually the star spangled banner at the official start of the Circle. My quote: " Since ALL lives matter, everyone stand up for your National Anthem!" No one sat. We do the Pledge to start every general meeting though!

    Nice Ken. I even recognized a few of the boats. Was the turnout smaller than previous years? Looked like fewer boats than in the past.

    21 boats this year, 22 last year. We have had several sell and a couple fighting illness that usually come. Several regulars have their boats for sale and don't want to risk using them. Comments I heard were all positive including the number of boats. People were able to interact with most everyone with this size turnout.
