“Awesome Gathering. I think it was the best ever. Great crowd and Tony is really making things really work well for us. The floating patio is such a great place for our evening dining and gathering for fun and karaoke.” – Roberta Hegy, Queen of the Boatbuilders

The most recent Gathering, G-12, was quite a success and doesn’t seem to be losing any steam even after 12 years! We are thankful for all of you that were able to attend. Below you’ll find some videos and link to the Gallery of photos for G-12…

A special thanks goes to Bill Edmundson who was one of the co-conspirator’s of this event from the very beginning. Without he and Dave Grason, these events would never be. Bill also provides yummy food, awards, a helping hand when needed and is just a wonderful friend. In addition we appreciate Neel Thompson who does a mean spaghetti dinner on Thursday for those coming early. Plus, he’s instrumental in the planning and execution of the event as well. And, of course, all of the other folks who pitched in with food, drink and supplies. 

A highlight of all of the yearly Gatherings is the “Awards” night. This event was never meant to be a competition, so the awards are fun ones. Here’s a list of this year’s awards:

TOP DOG –  Janis Joplin – Always Positive and Ready (Accepted by Paula Barto)

SALES DIRECTOR – Flor Schott – She sold the tickets for the 50/50 drawing and raised a lot of money for the kitty.

LLLLONG DISTANT TRAVELERS –  Peter and Sara Jenkins From Australia.

DEMOLITION DERBY – Paul Kane – Tried to take out Neel Thompson’s cabin backing into it!

IT JUST AIN’T THAT COLD! – Jeff Cobb (you really should take the earmuffs off of the water intakes before running).

MUFF DRIVER –  Tyler Reynold – He hurt Paul Kane’s feelings when his Squirt was louder than the Hot Rod. He did wear his hearing protection earmuffs!

MR ADDICTED – Mark Coleman – He lives on a house boat and has 8 other boats. Six of them are Glen-L designs.

We put together a Gallery here and below are a couple of videos put together by those who attended…

This one is by Matt Hood, Glen-L Geronimo builder:

Jeff Cobb put this one together. Jeff previously built a Glen-L Squirt but this year brought his new boat with him that is his own custom design:

This one’s by Tony aka Ts9174–awesome drone footage:

I hope you enjoyed the videos and photos. Plans are already made for next year’s G-13 Gathering which will be September 12-15, 2019 and will once again be at Hale’s Bar Marina and Resort. To join the discussion and make sure you get your cabin reserved, see our Forum.
