Hey Lunker, I didn't get a chance to talk to you too much, but I was the guy at Tito's booth that took the picture of you, Henry and Tito holding your gun. BTW that's a very nice gun you have.

Definitely, we need to get together a hit the water. I had 2 kayaks before, but I traded them for dive gear. My brother goes couple of times a week swimming from shore to the 2nd reef in Johnson St.

Thanks guys for posting up the pics, especially Tony, I know you spent lots of time on that. What a great weekend, huh?? You are right, Sheri does always remain calm under pressure, that's what makes her a champion. Great job Sheri, THANK YOU for giving us all a wonderful weekend and doing so with such charm and dignity. I can't think of anyone else who could possibly bring all of these people together for one event and have it go off without a hitch. You remain my hero.

Thanks Sheri!

I wanted to express my gratitude to Sheri for putting together another very successful Blue Wild Expo. I can’t imagine the amount of work it takes to organize and conduct a multi-day, professional show while relying upon an army of dedicated volunteers. Thanks needs to be extended to everyone who makes this kind of event possible.

It was wonderful to be able to finally meet so many of our customers, many of which we know only as a voice on the telephone. We knew there would be a lot of interest in the prototypes of the enclosed track pipe gun and the completely new, fully enclosed track, hybrid gun, but the excitement these two products generated exceeded our expectations. Thanks Griswald and Tin Man, your work is amazing!

Re: WILD, WIld, Wild Blue! Fabulous Fun - Get over here Sunday! See These Photos!

Thanks Sheri for putting on an event that far exceeded the tremendous success of last year. And you sure throw a hell of a party! At this pace we will need the whole auditorium soon. You must have a LOT of sleep to catch up on. Hope you get to rest. To all the volunteers, thanks for your efforts, it went GREAT!!! I have been in a wheelchair the last 2 years, hopefully I will be walking around next year!.. and able to have a few

Dano, great meeting you in person. I have a feeling you will sell the hell out of the new guns... I am thinking I need to build a hybrid.

Well it was indeed a great event, we could all see all the effort and fatigue Sheri and her friends did put in organizing it. Applause
and now some well deserved rest and, perhaps, some spearfishing, waiting for next year

Re: WILD, WIld, Wild Blue! Fabulous Fun - Get over here Sunday! See These Photos!

LunkerBuster, you're a sweetheart, and it was great meeting you. If I was a few decades younger, I'd be chasing you.

Thank you all for thanking me, but it should be me thanking YOU! The fourth annual Expo is now over and what a fun ride that was. My loyal band of volunteers and I were eating dinner after it was all over, totally exhausted, feet hurting, yet basking in the afterglow of another Expo. We handled over 100 exhibitors, 30 speakers, a lobby full of marine artists, two major raffles/live auctions, a film festival, a kick-off party, and over 1,000 attendees coming from as far as Greece, Italy, Australia, Peru, Ecuador, Qatar, and several other places.

Best of all, we had that magic in the air! It seems to occur when ocean lovers from around the world get together and share their passion. As usual, we had some special souls in the place: Stan Waterman, Rob Torelli, Art and Alice Pinder, Dan and Stacey MacMahon, Bob Croft, Del Wren, Daryl Wong, Rob Murphy, Pascal, Carey -- all very special people (I'm sure I'm forgetting a few), but they make it extra special, and it's a privilege just to be around them.

I loved the enthusiasm from the crowd when we did the raffle (specially that first row of guys), and my new helpers Kylie and Hunter were so darn adorable! I'm once again indebted to the volunteers that carried the show....Bobbi (Waterbug), Dan and Stacey MacMahon, Skeeter, Bill Cardet, Dave Earp, Lisa, Colleen, Kyle, Tanner, Stoker, Josh, Chad, Chuck and Angie, Tom and Pat, and the Twin Palms volunteers....couldn't do it without you. They worked their tails off and some don't even know me that well, just being generous, and that is so extremely humbling to me. Same with all the exhibitors, artists, authors....lots of good people and good energy in the room. I love it, and that's what gives me the impetus to do it all over again.

To those that came, some that I met for the first time, some that introduced yourselves -- thank you for coming out, and I hope you enjoyed it. Old friends and new friends -- that's what it's all about!
