Sorry I missed the fun, I stayed in the Keys an extra day.  Just got home a little while ago.  I promise to make the next one, especially if it is a little closer to Melbourne.

I'm tentatively setting the date for the next HH for Nov 12th at 4:00 PM, location TBD.  Unless anyone has any strong objections to this date, I'll start another thread so we can discuss location.

OFFICIAL RECAP FROM THE WENCH'S PERSPECTIVE....

 

We had a blast at our first SoFL Happy Hour in several years! (True we did an informal one last year before our Best of Florida trip but this was more formal and certainly a blast!!!)

 

We had friends from the early days come and join us and friends from only 2 days prior come and join us! It was a great mix of new and returning and we were blessed to have several member's better halves join us as well! :cool1:

 

The venue was lovely but we never saw the water as we were too engaged in conversation. So our next venue will be more about facilitating conversation than the scenery.

 

We are already planning the next one for Oct or Nov so stay tuned for details and FOLLOW THIS POST for when and where!

 

I want to thank several people who have thru the years been so supportive of our club in general an for sure of our efforts in So Florida.

 

1. Lureen for all the amazing pictures she shares on our facebook page promoting trips we are going on Yes she has been nearly everywhere! She gives so graciously of her time and talents and we :wub: her!!!

 

2. Alan who has helped our club with Happy Hour promotion in his own newsletter for years and helps our members via expert advice from Reef Photo one of our corporate partners!  Heck he even provided us tel service back in the day....yeah...we go way back! :respect:

 

3. Brad who helped to organize the HH and managed to keep 2 women on track from airport runs and boat runs and meal runs and even Happy Hour runs and then at the last minute could not join us... .:( But was there in spirit!  Sylvie and I would have been lost without him.... :respect:

 

4. And last but not least Mark for organizing the Happy Hour and for years of love and support helping the club and who has jumped back in to help get the new So Florida group rev'd up now the wench is coming to town...permanently! :wakawaka:

 

I also want to thank Sylvie for coming in from TEXAS to join our Southern aka Southern Florida that is hospitality! And Holly for reading the Aug Newsletter and signing up for a trip and then coming to the HH that was only a few blocks from her house! And Rachael and Dave L who were dive buddies on the Starfish who met our group and wanted to learn more about us!

 

From the bottom of my heart I thank you all!

 

So come and make your own memories at the next HH...I promise you won't be disappointed! Kamala
