Oh yeeah...ready to go.

Anyone know if the kingies are still around. Don't they toodle off once the water temp drops?

Original suggestion by DanDan was four, but I don't see why we couldn't swell the ranks - It's a neat bit of coast at the best of times anyway.

What about listing availability for each weekend, I'll start:
Green for good to go, Orange for Maybe, Red for definitely out

23/24th
HLD


30/31/1 (Liz's Birthday)
HLD

6/7th
HLD


13/14th
HLD

Never been there before but imagine theres a decent amount of water to cover? Don't want to intrude... Maybe for all dates anyway

I rarely do comps now - puts the hex on me every time for some reason. Don't see why I should pay for the privilege of not catching anything :lol:
