From the Boatbuilder Connection:
Let's make commitments for Guntersville 07

Committed to attend: 39 plus guests

From WebLetter 90: "All that to say… Barry and I will be attending the Gathering along with our spouses!!! Woo Hoo! I'm so excited to meet you all and see your beautiful boats. I can hardly wait!" --Gayle & John Brantuk; Barry & Anke Witt, Bellflower, CA

"Well folks if I can still afford the diesel fuel in October I'll be there with my Vacationer Whippoorwill. It looks like it will be a great time and I'm looking forward to meeting new builders and checking out the boats. There are some great caves to explore in that area if anyone is into that. I'll see you on the water." Keith, Covington, GA

"Can't wait,for the gathering. I will be there with my 28hp XP8 Seeing is beliving. ZOOM ZOOM see you there" Fred McDearmid, Crawfordville, FL (XP8)

"I have committed a reservation in the park. I'm going in on Wednesday, thru Sunday. I hope to take some kind of cruise on the Tennessee river before the event." kens, Savannah, GA (Double Eagle)

"just committed to a Lake Cabin. (Thursday, Friday & Saturday Nights). I'll donate to the Pavillion. But, I'll bet we could sit in it and talk without paying! When I made my reservation, they asked if I was with a group. I said we weren't official, yet. But, we're a bunch of boat builders. They are aware of us! Deposit is one nights rent. Refundable, up to 72 hours before arrival." Bill & Lauren Edmundson, Birmingham, AL (KH Tahoe 19)
Lamar & Karen Summerlin (friends of mine who want to build)

"I'd be willing to bet that if we had enough people reserved, they'd give us the pavillion. However, before too many people make reservations, let's see how we go about making sure that the park folks know that we're all with the same group. That way they'd have more info to work with." Dave & Connie Grason, Kingston Springs, TN

"I guess this means... 'count me in'." I've booked a Cabin for Friday and Saturday nights. It's a two bedroom, and I think I'll be WOS (Without Spouse). If anyone wants to bunk in the other room, let me know, and we can split. Bruce Dow, Toronto, ON, Canada (Monaco)

"I am committed to being there, but make the 45 minute drive instead of staying there." John K (Flying Saucer)

"I will definitely be there also". Bob (narduccimarine) & Sue Londress, Decatur, AL

"I will be there with my Zip. Should have her finished before spring." tgattis, Savannah, GA

"I plan to attend although at this point I am not sure what days. I will be coming by river (Cabin Skiff) and will sleep onboard so housing is not an issue. Looking forward to meeting everyone." raymacke, Marissa, IL

"I solemnly promise that I will attend the 'Guntersville Gathering'. There, that's done. I'll make the reservation tomorrow." v-driver, Memphis, TN

"Okay, I don't think we are supposed to post here unless we are committed: but I THINK I am committed." leakcheck, Marietta, GA

"Wives invited or not? Personally, I like my 'Admiral', and would prefer if she came - she is very knowlegable about boats and boating and would love to come. Our plan are to bring the Squirt and stay with some friends we still have in Huntsville..." terrymc, California

"I say that any time you can take your wife with you... take her." leakcheck

"Wives! Welcome or not! My wife plans to come. And she may bring friends!" Bill Edmundson

"I'm in Portland, Oregon, and am gonna try to be there. Hope to bring the Ski King, but it's gonna be a long haul... If anyone in my corner of the US wants a ride, get a hold of me by phone or EM..." Dwain Colton

"I just called and reserved a cabin so I'm there! I should have my Malahini done by then to bring. Dave put it in better perspective for me saying its only one state over!" Warren (upspirate) & Debbie, Savannah, GA

"I can commit to coming - two people, my wife and myself. Hopefully I'll have my Tuffy done by then. I spent the summer of 1978 as a BSA camp counselor on Lake Guntersville, teaching motorboating and skiing, but haven't been back since. 'Twill be great to be out on the water again. Many thanks to whomever has taken the inititative to organize this!" Kent & Ulli Misegades Cary, NC

My wife and I will most likely be there. We'll sail down from S. Pittsburg, TN and sleep aboard. The idea of this gathering is terrific. riverratrebel
