A quiet net this morning with only two check-ins. I mentioned I would provide a few links that I forgot yesterday and we got an interesting treasure from the bilge.

That was the inspiration for Team Nauti Krewe’s entry into the first QnD event in St. Augustine. A quick web search will turn up QnD contests from all over the world. While the competition rules vary, all have one common goal – Having Fun! Each team of five builders was given a handful of drywall screws, four sheets of plywood, a few 2×4’s, some caulk, paint, and ten hours to build a human powered race boat. The build happened at the festival and gave festival goers a chance to see the process up close. Team Nauti Krewe’s
entry was a five paneled canoe named “JunCanoe” and styled after the loud and colorful Bahamian street parades.
October 20 was the first anniversary of the start of the radio Cruiser’s Net. To celebrate we had a happy hour at Meehan’s Backyard. The turnout was incredible with at least 45 people attending. A small contingent moved to the Conch House to wish Wes and Sabine a fond farewell. This was followed by an even smaller group heading to the American Legion for pool and BLT’s.
Thank you everyone for such a fantastic evening.
