Spring Clave '09

I know it's really, really early. I have a couple of guys that may attend but need to book way out. Do we have any ideas as to which weekend it will be?

Dave -

I'm going to propose May 30/31 weekend. Moon tides fall right on Memorial Day weekend which will put most participants out of commission, and earlier would be potentially be less productive than later if it's a cold spring, the extra time will also put more action on the bayside if migration is lack luster on the elbow... so the weekend after MD is the right choice provided we book accommodations early enough. So in that sense it's not too early.

May 30/31 works for me. its a shame the week before has the best tides, but it happens.

hopefully it will be warm and the fish will co-operate

cheers

Mark

That should be good timing if we can get the usual pre-season rates.

Mark, nice bit of thievery on that RPL!

Juro, what do you mean by "put most participants out of commission?"

Memorial day weekend is typically a "family weekend" and many would not be able to attend the clave.

Is this now a "for sure" date so I can start working on booking a room and get it in my calendar?

Juro, or anybody else, have you called about seeing if we can get a cheaper rate?

Joe

Since we're on the $$$ side of Memorial Day this might take a special phone call. I'll drop them a line since I am the clavemeister for the spring clave.

stay tuned

Spring Clave

Hi Guys
Finally getting some pc time. Stuck in O'hare...., again!! Headed to CA for the week.
The 5/30 and 5/31 dates are great. Expect the usual "CA/NC Crew".
I'll tell Walt the dates. It should be great and all lacrosse coaching should be over by then!
Things are good in NC. I got married (re-) in November.
I had a good bowseason down here.
Fishing crews should be at the house from about mid-May thru Mid/end of June, so we hope to see some of you folks in W. Dennis.
I look forward to this year's clave.
Cheers
DK

Roo-stahhh!!!

Good to hear from you Dennis.

Will you have access to a yak by any chance?

Think "worm-hatch"
