  • Question about Funament

    I am new to this site and was wondering what Funament is? If it is a Mako owners get together how do we get on the mailing list to start attending.

    Thanks,

          The Destin Funament has been continuously running for four years. I volunteered to do it on ClassicMako as I was already planning on starting my own club in the area (emerald coast mako owners club) and people were starting to talk about a CM get together. It would be cool to have another get together somewhere else and maybe even have it move annually. One over in LA or MS would be very fun as there are some great fishing / boating areas.

            Destin is a great place to visit and a great place to hold a Funament(although I've yet to make it to one).Moving from year to year has advantages and disadvantages.Real quick(JMHO): advantage:it may be moved to a place closer for members who have been unable to attend b/c of distance. disadvantage: moving from place to place makes it difficult to organize(only thinking of you Sailor) as you have to deal with different ppl year to year when staying in one place almost becomes routine to plan.

            There are lots of other reasons one way or the other,I was just throwing a couple of them out there even though I'm not qualified to suggest anything.

            I know I have said it b4,but I am planning to come to next years no matter what.I was coming this year until our little miracle decided it was her time.Anyhow,next year has all the makings to be the year.

              While the idea of moving does seem interesting...I LOVE DESTIN. There are a number of areas around the Gulf Coast with possibilities, and honestly I believe some of the best fishing around is in my backyard...Fishing from Dauphin Island, AL is awesome, inshore, near shore, & offshore, and there is a barrier Island (Sand Is.) to meet/hang/play, but there is not as much to do and see...no Noreiga Pt. or Crab Island[].

                In days gone by, weren't there several Mako Funaments in various locations? I know that there is an active Funament in south Florida, as I have seen threads here advertising it. Rather than move a good thing in Destin, maybe we all should consider having additional Funaments. Certainly not trying to dilute a good thing that Sailor has going, but I would think more opportunities to attend would be better than fewer.

                To the fellow Georgia sharks, would there be any interest in a coastal Funament here? I'm thinking Savannah or Brunswick. There is plenty to do in Savannah for the family, and Brunswick could pull a crowd from GA and FL. Any thoughts?

                  not that I'm biased([]),but Savannah would be awesome! Seriously,there is a lot to do here,both on the water or on dry land.Diving,fishing,bar hopping(sand or drink),shopping,and dining.Just a thought,but as I said,I'm not biased.

                  BTW,I have lots of room for boat storage!

                    I wasn't suggesting moving the Destin Funament, I was suggesting "someone else" organize a get together in another location! No way I would try to organize one of these in another town!

                      No way I would ever ask you to pull that kind of weight, Sailor! You have done an amazing job of pulling the Destin Funament together, and keeping it on track for four years. I just think there is an opportunity out here to add to the good thing you've got going. If there was interest in starting a Funament in GA, would you share some of the secrets of your success with us?

                        Sailor,

                        As you may have read in my first post,I said the same thing about moving the destination.It would be a huge task for you when you have no resources outside of Destin.This was the point I was trying to make when I listed it as a disadvantage.I also know that you were not suggesting moving and only suggesting adding.I think Flying Squirrel was acknowledging that that would be a great idea.I would be more than happy to help and maybe spearhead a Savannah Funament.

                        FS,maybe we should get our heads together and see if there is any other interest.

                              If anyone else wants to organize a funament I would be more then happy to share my experiences, as would Manasotamako. Putting on together isn't rocket science, it just takes a lot of work and time...depending on the level that you want to achieve.
