Nice to be able to put some new faces with names.
I have to say that driving into and out of the bay area each time for me is like a newbie doing a surf launch and landing for the first time.
It makes it much more worth it if you catch fish as opposed to getting skunked.
AOTY ceremony was like catching fish, made the launch and landing worth it.

Thanks!  Nice meeting a lot of new faces as well as seeing a lot of OG I hadn't seen in a long time. Great food and a GREAT location.  Thanks to everyone for the whole deal, and the great prizes.  My new yak looks great in the fleet.

I had a great time. Congrats to all who were in the top 10. I think dedication, experience and some strokes of luck let us all have epic days. It was real nice to meet everyone as this was my first NCKA get together. A good crossection of people having a good time. Bliss my friend, pure bliss. Putting faces to posts was the best part.

Thanks to everyone that made it out, great time with great food. Again thanks to Mooch for securing the location, it was a great spot. Thanks to ChuckE for coordinating most of the prizes and John from Windtoys ad Hobie for donating the 1st place boat and the trophies for Kids and Womens division.

Great time and hopefully this year I will get to see some more of you out on the water.

What a blast it was to put faces to screen names, trade fish stories and eat great food! Whoever made the ribs... they are were awesome and the sauce was killer!

Congrats to all of the winners and I look forward to seeing everyone on the water.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the wonderful "party".  It was my pleasure meeting new friends and putting faces to the nick names.  Here are some of the pictures I took, I'm sure more pictures will be posted by others.

A turnout like this makes me very proud.  It's great to see people from very different backgrounds getting along so well and enjoying a common passion.  My only regret is not having more time to mingle with everyone.

Thanks to Bill.  Thanks to all of our AOTY sponsors like Hobie and John @ Windtoys for hooking us up with the goods.  Thanks to Mooch and Aquan Sports for providing a great venue.  Thanks to everyone for contributing to the potluck and helping out.
