From what I hear they will not be ready in time but they have an alternate plan for the show which they have not revealed just yet. Maybe that just means they're trying to figure out what to do!

Hey Guys.....I talked to Woody for a bit who me gave some inside scoop and said that I needed to give Terry Fiest a call (who is the head honcho for the show). Touched base with Terry about the CCFan guys were planning on coming down to the show by water on Friday. He was tickled that we were coming and that he would have a place roped off for us to moor boats. The Hurricane took care of all the docks and that the show must go on but was gonna be a land based this year. Plenty of boats, but just on their trailers this year. He also said that he'd cut a deal with us since we were coming . Let him know how many boats were coming and how many people we had and he would provide us all with an arm band at $5 instead of the $10 gate price. I just need to give him a head/boat count about a week before the show. He said we love having all you guys come down because we we such a fun group of people. Told him that we appreciated it, we enjoy the trip and the show and we'll be there!

So........ that being said. Y'all start making you plans to be at Parramores by Thursday night so the Correct Craft Armada can make its way down River to a Woody Boat show on Friday. Safe to say I'm not the only one who is tired of Old Man Winters grip on this cold weather. Enough already!

Amanda and I are in this year. I don't know yet if I'll be tugging the San Juan down yet or not. Depends on my work progress on it by then.

Jerry, I'm gonna say 9:00 am departure time as most will need to fuel up and ice up the boats. It's about a 45 min ride to the ramp and then we still gotta launch a dozen or so boats. Once every is on the water it's about a hour ride down river, through a lake down river to the lock, down river more through another lake to the Dora Canal. There are two marinas along the river to fuel up, ice up, and potty break for those who need too.

Return trip will be based on what time the Lock closes and when everyone is ready to head back.

Does anyone remember the name of the lock where we launch and the name/number of the road where we turn off of HIghway 40? Phyllis lives west of there, so no sense her driving to Astor to go with us; she can meet us at the launch site.

Hey all, just a heads up, Castaways (across from Blackwater Inn) moved off the river and opened up a new restaurant just a couple miles west of the bridge on 40. I ate there a few weeks ago for dinner on the way to Daytona and the food was amazing. The new place is really big and could accommodate a large group.
      I almost stopped in to Buck & Kat's but glad I didn't as the bartender at Castaways said it had closed, so not sure if you'll have a restaurant on site this year.
Hope you all have a great time and are safe. Miss my Nautiques!   My BFN popped up on my memory wall on FB this morning and I almost shed a tear.

Finally got through to Parramore's after numerous attempts. Farmer's (76 Ski Nautique) are booked in the Bream Beds and the Franklin's (Bay Craft "Correct Craft for the weerkend") in Osprey. Very little cabins still available. Possibly another fishing club there a the same time per Parramore's staff?? Book now to secure your cabin or rv space.

Yeah, okay we get it...... You wanna hang with the guys ONLY if we come to YOUR place. Just come out and say it. Man up!

Only 3 cabins left...Aliigator, Fox and Bear( which is tiny and no full kitchen) I'm in Otter Den.

Yes, there is a Fishing Club there snatching up our cabins so get of the Row Boat and book a cabin. Alligator is the big one on the water and has three bedrooms and a forth with bunks in it for a short person.
The Ruckus will be here before you know it so ya better start waxing the boat now and getting it prepped for a long weekend of fun. Looking forward to it Y'all!

Smith family light just took the Fox Den.
Alligator (Big) and Bear (Small no kitchen) left open. Also camp sites. Confirmed that the restaurant CLOSED 8 months ago, and yes, there is a fishing group in. (An "older age group" I was told?) ALSO, slips are first come first served ($5) BUT, she said those that arrive early can grab more than one and get reimbursed by the taker? Someone want to secure one for the SmithFamily? Tim?

For those looking for a place to stay for The Ruckus (other than a tent or RV) as Parramores is full here is a place on the River that might fit your needs. On the River and looks as if you may be able to rent a slip to keep the boat in the water so as to run up to Parramores via water instead of the Car.

Castaways

This one is also a stones throw from Parramores and a few Fans have stayed there...

This place isn't bad either right adjacent to 2 boat ramps, in case you need bait too!

Hopefully someone can revive Blair's Jungle Den, although it maybe a lost cause.

I was just there today. Beautiful day on the MC. All docks but for the ramp approach, still gone. There is also ongoing road construction along the lakefront. I would like to think that will be complete by Sunnyland show, but it has been dragging. I am confident that regardless of progress of floating docks or road, we will have a great time.

Well I was gonna wait until the first of March to bring this up but since you have then lets getting rolling. Need a head count anyway so if your planning on doing the River Cruise to the show speak up, if you're bringing a a boat and how many are going. Need to let the Tavarres Boat Show folks know how many arm bands ($5 a person) are needed as well as boats. Will have River Ruckus Coozies available for purchase if you need/want more. We have the Rec Hall and Grill reserved for our traditional Sat night "Whatcha Brought" cookout.

No worries Mike.... Getting pretty excited about the weekend myself. My youngest daughter Tamara who is a college student at Valdosta may come down for the weekend with her Beastie... Started getting the boat ready a couple days ago.
