  • Funament Feedback

    Please provide feedback on the funament. Ed, Leo and I really tried hard to provide a special meal and a nice banquet. It took a lot of time to pull together but you can't make everyone happy altough we tried.

    We have already started talking about next year, maybe something like a big shrimp and crawfish boil / fish fry. Hopefully this will allow us to have a nice banquet but be able to spend more time with our families.

    The fishing tournament was a little disjointed with information coming to me about the catches being somewhat sketchy in some cases. Having said that, it was mainly for the kids.

    Need to find a way to speed up the raffle so Eddie still has a voice at the end![]

    Please tell me what you think, thanks

    Dave, We had a great time this year, and I thought it went great. I know there were behind the scenes confusment. I completely agree with yall about doing a Fish fry/ Shrimp boil next year. The time it will take maybe a quarter of the time. That said I do appriciate all the work and effort put forth by Leo, Ed, Dainel, Lisa, and yourself and any others I forgot to mention. It was perfect.

    The fishing tournament will always have a down fall to it no matter what. There is always going to be atleast one in the bunch that isnt happy, but thats life.

    I dont know if you will speed up the raffel unless you have less people[]

    Thanks again to all those who helped and made this year the Biggest turn out yet!

      I guess a few major sections of the week should be looked at.

      The captains meeting went well with more people there than I expected. But like I said lots of sketchy info being sent to me on the catches. We were a couple of captains bags short in the end but Eddie was going on a best guess for the count. The pink ladies hats seemed to be popular.

      The cookout at Eddie's and Artie's I thought was a smash, we had a very large turn out and the run there and back in the boats was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone who helped there.

      Breakfast thing didnt turn out as well, not that many people showed up. Either an idea we need to drop or maybe have it later in the morning. Leaning towards dropping it.

      The fireworks on Thursday night was a good time.

      The banquet went well I thought, very hectic for Leo, Ed and I that day but we wanted to kick it up this one time. Amy was a life saver at the end handling tournament results still coming in, recording everyone who walked in the door, selling T shirts and raffle tickets, and generally doing a great job keeping things organized.

      Porkey was on his own schedule and Leo and Ed did what they could to have it all ready at one time. The food was excellent I thought. For sure didn't run out of food.

      I might have done too many flags, will have to look over that kind of stuff again.

      I have an idea that might speed up the raffle, at least for the kids potion. But having lots of stuff to raffle is a good thing, but it also takes time to call it all out.

      I am pretty sure the trophies were a hit. Need to thanks Tim Lynn and Chris Allenbaugh again for their help there.

      Volunteers are always welcome. On banguet night/day all you have to do is show up. If there is not much going on at the moment, just hang around a few. That is exaclty what Amy did and she was a huge asset.

        All I can say,from a spectators standpoint,is everything was GREAT! I loved every aspect of it.The numbers don't lie either.What an awesome turnout both at Artie and Eddie's cookout as well as the awards banquet.Leo,Ed,and David,I know yall put in a huge effort and the things yall were able to pull off was amazing.I have no complaints if you wanna cook something for next year that doesn't require all day cooking/attention.I completely understand if you wanna take more time to spend with people and family.My only gripe? Make time turn a faster so next year will be here already.Don't hesitate to post up next years dates.I've already started to recruit some of my buddies for next year.

          I forgot about this thread, but I can say from a little mans perspective that we were informed at Connor's B'day this weekend by daycare teacher that everyday at prayer since our trip Jack prays for Mommy, Daddy, Connor, and that we get to go back to Destin [8D]. That amazing 3 yr old does that all on his own and we had no idea or anything to do with it.

          We had a blast and thought all was wonderful. The one thing I did like better about years past was Saturday banquet. I know this setup accommodated week long visits, but I think some long weekenders would have jumped in. Next years menu/cooking will have to easier because Leo is bringing a bracketed 25' [].

              I would like to attend next year for sure with the family. My brother lives up that way so it gives him an excuse to hang with us.

              I can bring fish and if there is any other seafood items let me know.
