Yes, I apologize but we can only manage the Boneclave on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday this year. It's scheduled earlier to target bonito. Although we always get tunoids, we are usually late for the toothy green torpedoes so this year we'll shift the date forward.

Tell your wives and bosses that you're taking two days in August now! http://www.flyfishingforum.com/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif

By chance is the term "Boneclave" Copyrighted or a Registered trademark?

Hey, the last time I told my wife I was going to fish in Rhode Island, she accused me of going to find "strippers". There's NO WAY I'm telling her about a BONE clave!

Same venue as the previous two? I'd really like to make this one for a change.

OK - Terry...

You must have missed the recent discussions to put the "bonito" into the boneclave by targeting that week.

Since you seem to think about that political stuff a lot, and because I am not married to that date...

Would you take the reins on Boneclave this year? I will assist you in any way I can... except set or reserve the dates.

I did a search for "Bone" in the board's past threads and no I didn't miss any thread re: "recent discussions to put the "bonito" into the boneclave by targeting that week.." Could you clarify? I remember some discussions about that last year.
As far as taking the reins? Too early. Me thinks, worry about making a good Spring Clave first. And keep it simple.
As for: "think about that political stuff a lot" I guess I do. I'll stop now before I get all sentimental about the pre Dec. 1st days.

FYI, the way the Waquoit Bay reservations work is that they only take reservations 6 mos in advance and they book almost as fast as they become available. I thought you might have remembered the drill from last year. By booking this "late" I missed the boat even though I think I might have been the first one to remember this year (didn't hear anyone mention it). When I suddenly thought of it and called this morning from the office, all weekends were already booked thru September 22nd. I grabbed a Sunday at what I thought represented the general concensus to get bones into the boneclave.

As far as relative timing to the spring clave, the fact is NOW is already too late for a weekend reservation on Washburn. If anything I regret that I forgot to think of it sooner.

As far as what you call the pre-Dec look and feel, I'm not sure I know exactly what that was but I honestly think this years going to be a lot better than last. The season hasn't even started in the northeast and between Sully's tying clave and the Dave and Todd's casting clave the pre-season has been out of sight!

If the comment was referring to the fund-raising efforts, they have sure made it better on my family budget! The effect of keeping it running without funding would have been to shut the site down, in other words it was the only way to keep it running. Once again, I am open to suggestions on other ways to perpetuate the forum, but they have to be tangible suggestions not just comments.

Looking forward to it Juro. I like monday and tuesday, to crowded around there on the weekends for me. Heading down to Red Brook this am to see how the wild salters are doing ( I love saying that wild salters, wild salters, wild salters) take it easy.

As always looking forward to it & plan on actually making it this year!

I know my ability to hit the water this year is going to be very limited but will make sure these dates are reserved.

I will be there for Sunday and hopefully into Monday. Plan to make trips with people on this board this year. Look forward to some of the Rip Trips as well and test out my casting lessions.

FYI -

Received confirmation that we indeed have the group site for this time period from the Commonwealth of MA. Sorry if I was unable to go thru the customary collaborations before grabbing these dates. The way the process works the weekends book 6 months in advance (often to the day) and the Fridays and Mondays soon follow. I will scan their nice brochure as the time approaches.

When it comes to Washburn, even in April - if ya' snooze you lose. Very slim pickins' by the time I called.

Anyway, hope to see those who can't make it during the spring clave, the monomoy madness, the rip trip, the rhodyfest, big girl...

How about a list of good things to bring? What would I need? What items would be nice-to-have in the bag of tricks!? Cheers...

While its a bit early to write this in stone.
(wife is having serious dental work this summer) I would be willing to providing yard space for a tent or two and/or floor space to for those that would like to get an early start and fish saturday. I'll let you know if this can happen as the time approaches.

That's very generous of you Bob - and I would've drove down there and back just for a couple fresh cherrystones and a cup of your chowdah! Really looking forward to another epic Boneclave this year.

Just wanted to mention that we would not want to inconvenience your wife in any way (first and foremost) and although your offer is very generous her comfort is our concern too and we would never impose under those circumstances. In any event I hope you are going to keep your Boneclave streak going!

Thanks,

Greg -

Just bring your bonito luck! That was one heck of a nice bone you got with Brandon that day, one of the bigger ones I've seen... and of course one of the finer ones I've tasted.

BTW - The refuge staff cashed my check so I assume it's a GO for August.

GregD

I definitely don't want to miss this one again. Please put me and Brandon on the list
for this years Boneclave. Let me know what I should bring.

Thanks,

Didn't have time to dig thru records but with Terry's reminder I did a search and here's the proof.

There is no closure, we are set for these dates. Geez only five weeks away!

Blasts from the past...

This sounds like a cry for help. No Forum!!! God forbid!!!

I'd agree with Juro, the onus of sustaining and growing the forum (e.g. maintaining the website, fundraising, organizing claves etc...) shouldn't have to lie with a select few people.

Being a relative newcomer to the site, can anyone fill me in on how the forum is run?:

Who is responsible for maintaining this here kick a#* website?

Where does the the moola come for site development, maintenance, hosting, hardware, software etc...?

Who is responsible for fundraising?

Does the forum have sources of revenue other than advertising and voluntary dues?

Does the forum generate enough cash to sustain its current operating expenses (including man hours for admin and maintenance) and foster growth? (i.e. not just break even)

Who is responsible for organizing claves?

Just curious...

Guys,
This thread needs to fade. This is ancient history, water under the dam. These issues have been resolved. No need to rehash them. Juro start another Boneclave thread will ya.

No intention to re-visit any of the old discussion, just the information relating to the clave itself.

New post will be put up immediately.

______________________

Lefty, my apologies...didn't realize it was such a sore subject. I'm new and don't know the "ancient history." Based on Juro's post, it didn't sound like all "issues have been resolved".

Just wanted to know if there was anything else I could do to help...thats all.

Jeff -

Likewise I had no intent or interest in raising any old news. In fact I was focused on the discussion around all that when I searched and found this post.

Look for the new boneclave post...
