Casey’s Blog: Well I gotta keep the Action going! Conditions have been amazing this November on Da reef. Enjoy the flight.😉😁
The 2017 Reef Warrior chili cook-off is in the books, Thanks to every one who brought chili. They were all good, the voting was close. A single vote decided the winner and there was a tie for 2nd.
After a vote off, 2nd place was awarded to Joe, in his first chili
Sydney , also a first timer took home the hardware this year.
The highlight of the night (other than the chili) was “The Rain water” rum fountain. A genius creation by our Mad Scientist, Cam.
A great reef sunset was enjoyed by all.
to view the end of year video.
In my excitement to share the video post of the Once Around the Wreck paddle I forgot to add these links to photos from the labor day paddle.
And a quick reminder, Chili cook -off will be September 30th, at Caseys place, ledge 4, please have your chili warm and delivered between 4 and 5 pm.
Crock pot cooker bags will be available for pick up the weekend of 9/23 here at ledge 12.
Hope to see everyone there!!!!
Thanks to everyone who braved the chill to participate/help out/ and share photos for the Once around the Wreck Paddle.
Even though the morning was a bit cold with a very uncommon east wind we still had a great turn out for this event. 70 + paddlers braved the elements. Give yourselves a round of applause!
The magic of the Reef was apparent the whole weekend, as the early morning chill made way to a warm day with a nice east wind that created a breezy, flat water, fun Hobie day. Then the remains of Hurricane Harvey cleared the beach in record time and left us with a Sunday Funday.
Waking up to waves for breakfast, a 2+ hr surf session turned into a great day for the sailors lucky enough to be here.
Big winds were forecast for Labor day Monday although they never materialized, it was an outstanding day, the warmth and sunshine provided a perfect day at the Reef.
Here is a video recap of the paddle and funday Sunday.
The great poet laureate of Margaritaville once said:
” It is hard to reason with the hurricane season”
This statement is a fact when it comes to planning for this year’s
Once around the Wreck Paddle.
Our event will be held on Labor Day weekend Saturday, Sept. 2 at 10am.
Let’s get everyone on the beach by 9:30ish.
As of now the weather is looking most promising for a Saturday morning paddle. Light winds are forecast for the morning with the breeze picking up later in the day. (Unlike Sunday’s forecast which has the sailors jumping for joy!)
Please bring your pfd! The aqua cops have been around often and we don’t need to raise funds to bail someone out of the brig!
Join us as we gather all manner of paddle craft for a trip around the Sherkston ship wreck. Then gather in front of ledge 12 for some post paddle treats, make new friends, catch up with old friends and swap some stories.
A great tradition to begin the countdown to the end of the summer of 2017
Reef Warrior swag will be available for purchase.
If any one would like to donate some time to help set up or any goodies to share (morning snacks/water/soft drinks/ice, ect.) please stop by and see Lou or Gail at ledge 12.
Please spread the word and let’s attempt to get over 100 paddlers involved!
See you all Saturday morning! Stay tuned for updates! (just in case :))
