Re: [bolger] Re: HOW ABOUT A SOUTHEASTERN MESSAGBOUT?
- 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.
