Important announcement for "Road Trip" attendees.......

Recommended Posts

OK folks, I have a rather bittersweet announcement to make. Your humble road trip coordinator has been overcome by unforeseeable circumstances and will not be able to attend this year's road trip. :'(

I am a Land Surveyor and my work is tied directly to the housing and mortgage market. You all know what that looks like in this economy. It's a long story, but the net of it is, after being without work for many months now, I have miraculously landed some much needed work that will not allow me to be away next week. It breaks my heart to miss this trip, but I must be mature about it. I have this kid who has developed a daily eating habit that I haven't been able to break. ;)

This is good news for my family and just terrible timing for the road trip. As always, I have found that I can count on the BassResource.com family to help me out when I have a need. My good friend "LONG MIKE" has very graciously accepted my request to stand in the gap for me and take over the last minute details of getting the trip together for you guys. Long Mike has already done a wonderful job of coordinating roommates and boat seats and is the natural choice to step in and cover my butt on this one. I trust you will give Mike the same cooperation and supportive help you have extended to me. I will still be around and checking in on you hooligans, but it is important that you stay in touch with Mike if you have questions or need assistance. From now until the trip is done, Mike is "da man" and he is taking on a lot of responsibility, so if you want to be a help to me during this tough time, throw your support to Mike. I am counting on you guys to help Mike make this the best road trip yet. I will be watching the board to see the new PB pics, so don't let me down.

God bless you all,

Ronnie

Yeah, I met him at Lake Fork and I agree with everything you said about him. He'll definitely be missed.

Alpster, thanks for having the confidence in me to fill your shoes - they are big shoes to fill. Since you have already laid the groundwork, I figure all I have to do is to dot a few T's and cross a few I's. (and figure out how to get rid of Burley)

Alpster - you have done a stellar job this year!  You have an incredible knack for tracking and following up on all the details. We're all very grateful for your efforts.  I was looking forward to hanging out with you and catching up.  I think I speak for all when I say you will be sorely missed, but your family needs you more.  Family is always #1, so you made the right decision.  

Don't worry about us. Mike is very capable.  With Mike taking over the reigns, I am confident everything will go well without a hitch.

Mike, I want to personally thank you for stepping in on short notice and handling all the last minute details.  There's a flurry of them, so it's no cakewalk.  It's just the nature of this event.  But you're well qualified and can easily handle everything.  That said, please let folks know if there's anything they can do to help.  I'm certain you'll find no shortage of volunteers.

Looking forward to this event!

Glenn

Mike, just want you to know I should be down at the lake as early as Sat before noon.  If there's anything I can do in preparation down there that would help you or the group out let me know.  I'm sure I can tear myself off the lake long enough to git R done.   ;)

You can roll out the red carpet for me and make sure I have two bottles of Dom on ice in my room.
