Thanks to all of you for submitting reports, sharing pics, helping out in the forum, and keeping it real. This is nothing without you. Thanks again. I just posted the Body Glove winner, so that is one more gift to give, and almost the last one for this short period. I need to give one more prize away to the skippers who reviewed reports during the campaign, and then I am done giving stuff away for a while! Until the next event that is. And that may be sooner than later.
