I'm glad all the swim-ins this past weekend went off successful. Our
4th Annual Fall North Texas Fri-Sun event this past weekend was also a
great time. We had great weather here and the family style campout is
always fun for those that like that style. Temps in the lower 70's make
night swims not too hot nor not to cold, and upper 80's in the daytime
is pleasant too. We had a little chop on the lake Sunday morning, but
not as bad as the waves at Celina a couple years ago. Great evening
bar-b-que and morning breakfast(s) cooked over an open fire, marshmellow
somemores on the fire at night. We also ended with a tech session on
water transmissions as that is a critical part of Amphicar'ng. A
little different venue than the bikini / bar maid chasing beer and
margarita festival up north. Anyway, out of respect for Dave the Wave
after he called, we kept our publicity down as he was trying to
promote the Ozarks. But sometime, consider coming to one of our more
laid back Texas events. We are shooting for another get-together in
November before the season ends. Also, don't forget the Annual Spring
event in April (maybe this year with something coordinated with the
LBJ ranch).

We had a great time too! I wished we could have stayed longer. David &
Debbi put on a good feed Friday night and & Warren cooked up a mean
breakfast Saturday morning. I'm sure Lisa helped too, but I wasn't there
for all of the cooking - Dan and I went fishing early Saturday morning.
He caught 4 fish - 3 bass & 1 perch and I caught 2 perch & one very,
very small bass!!! This was a very nice lake. Very big!!!!!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing what the folks at LBJ ranch come up with.
It would be cool if we could give rides to LBJ's daughters, their kids
and grandkids.

Thanks David for hosting this event!!!!! Al & Debra, keep us posted on
the November event!
