Title: Guntersville Rally Considerations 2018
Post by: Bud Kennedy on August 31, 2018, 01:56:54 PM
Given the circumstance that currently exist within our group, I believe that it would be prudent to consider cancelling the event for this year.  Perhaps next year would be a better opportunity for the entire group to get together once again.  I realize that today is the day that the cabin rental folks need to know what our plans are.   I would like to hear from you about this proposal

Bud, I'm with you. With Lee having to sit it out... I will be there if it's a go. But I'm not opposed to looking for a better turn out. Maybe even a spring event, however, spring is even harder for me usually.

I would hate not seeing everyone but this has become a very busy time for me.
Next spring or next Sept. would be better for me.
Bud thanks for bringing this up for us.

I hate to say it but, I'm leaning that way as well. We're missing too many. I'm sure we'd have a good time but, it's really not going to be the same. I'm good with a Spring effort. As long as Lee doesn't make things difficult for the Doc, he should be mobile by then. Maybe we can get Fogy to show up too. Guntersville owes Fogy.

We should decide and see if we can cancel without having to pay a fee. I'll go with the majority.

Terry G and I have discussed this and both agree that we will pay our portion of any cancellation obligations.  I think Connie will be more than fair with us and with Lee especially.  Lee should not have to bear any of the expenses of the cancellation.

Same here, I'll cover my portion.

Looks like this is an official cancel. Has anyone asked Lee how much we owe in restocking fees. I'm in for two persons worth.

I texted him yesterday, he had a bunch of tests and said he'd check today and let us know.

Connie isn't going to charge us anything.  Another reason to always use her when your there!!!  Few and far between!

Thanks Lee, I hope we all can get together at Guntersville in the future for some more Rally Legends.

Wow, can we send her something for a thank you? Maybe a bottle of something  :-*

If nothing else I would like an address to send her a card apologizing and thanking her for your generosity. It got to suck to lose that kind of guaranteed money.

Even though I have never been to the Rally for health reason I have always been there in spirit. I will be sending you a little $$ to help pay for the flowers also. Cause she is a Cancer survivor just like me.

Although the rally is cancelled this year, here is the weather forecast for the week we were gonna have the rally in 2018.  Looks like we may have missed a good one.

Weather-wise it looks beautiful but the fishies may have not appreciated the NE wind and the extra cloud cover really scatters the fishies, especially under the grass.

Most of all I miss out on finally meeting everyone  :(

Sorry guys!!! and Gals!! I love conditions like this at Guntersville, especially if it's raining, Bud does too  ;)

They bunch up in the deeper pockets under the mats for some reason, you find one, you'll find a few and they will be very very aggressive for that little froggy, very aggressive  lo  huh Bud???   ;D

Lee, Next year we can give them hell.  By then you will be back to your old self and I will just be older.   I still think this is the right week to be at Guntersville.  Not too hot, not too cold and you are right.  A bit of rain always adds to the fun.  Lee it was a day that you and I had that I will never forget and I don't even know where we were but the bass were sure there and that is all that mattered.
