First Time Celina

  • Thread starter
  • Start date

I just wanted to say thanks to Marc, the board and all who worked to
put together the annual Celina event for the rest of us. This was the
first year for me and my family and what a great time we had.
From watching the awesome fireworks "front row" on the lake, to the
VIP treatment from the friendly people of Celina, the conversations
and late night/early morning beverages with The Bilgemaster, the
Echemanns, Paul from Germany(now Michigan 30 minutes from me), the
Schlemmer's, Eric M., The Wave, Nick and Sandi, the Parsons and many
more, to watching 50 Amphicars line up for a photo with a guy hanging
out of a helicopter- it was all great. I feel very fortunate to have
gone from exactly one year ago, "tripping" over an annoucement of
Celina 2000 on the radio and spending the day Saturday watching 40
cars go into the water for the first time in my life, then finding a
good car at a decent price and actually participating in Celina 2001
with 58 cars and being fortunate enough to be only 3 hours from
Celina. Incredible! What a diffence a year makes.
Thanks again to all you worker/participants who must have put a great
deal of time and effort into this event from us mere mortals who only
participated and thoroughly enjoyed. My hat's off to you.
