    Thanks to Dave the wave and his better half Margie, Sandy and I had a great
    time over the weekend. We enjoyed great weather, a great location, great
    people, Friday night we drove to the rock river and had an enjoyable time
    swimming with Dave and family and Eric and nick, we swam to a restaurant that
    had a perfect view of the river. Saturday morning we went to spring valley to
    meet up with other amphi folks. you could not have asked for a better
    weekend, river was perfect, not used to watching out for barges as big as a
    football field though. caring an extra propeller saved us from watching all
    the action from land as i had a blade break off while taking a 6 mile swim
    with 3 other amphis. sure glad the car had a fuel reserve as it was a longer
    trip than expected. anyone that wanted an amphicar ride that weekend got one
    as most of us gave a lot of people rides ,"Especially Dave." Getting together
    with other amphi folk has been something that we all was look forward too.
    Celina is great but there is something to be said about being with a smaller
    group of amphicars. thanks to all that showed, Dave you can count on us when
    ever you have swim ins, and i encourage all to try to join or host an
    amphicar weekend.
