      So we're talking about memorial day week-end? in Beauford NC? Or somewhere in SC. I live on Lake Hartwell in western SC. It has 986 miles of shoreline, not sure of wind conditions as I don't sail. Big water around the Dam. Should I look into aroud here or does some one have another idea?
      We need some input from list members if this is going to happen.

      Having been to the MIDWEST messabout several times, I think do it perfectly.
      Anyone can come with any boat or no boat at all.
      No particular schedule except for maybe a group meal.
      Lots of looking, talking, and playing in boats.

      Being from South Georgia, and having a larger boat to trailer,
      I'd favor SC over NC.

      I love cruising tidal creeks and rivers,
      and believe lakes can be pretty bland,
      but for a messabout, you can't beat a
      campground on protected wide water.
      That way sailors, rowers, paddlers, and
      motorboaters, all get to play. Most of the
      good stuff at a messabout happens on the
      shore anyway.

      Let's not drop this thread. Let's pick location central to
      those who have expressed interest that has the features
      for a boat gathering. When is memorial day?
      I, for one, am excited about the possibilities so far.
