Our pics are too big, I'm assuming. No time to re-size. I'm tired.

Group IQ is inversely proportional to the size of the group.

A Steelhead always knows where he is going, but a Man seldom does.

WOW was that fun. Many thanks to Victor and all of the sponsors and congratulations to all of the winners.  :smt003 Kind of cold Saturday night and kind of windy Sunday morning but otherwise a perfect event. Crabbing was hit or miss and ended up with 5 dungies and 2 reds on my 4 Promar ambush hoops, short soaked. Caught a 7+" dungie but he escaped when my game bag popped open.  :smt013 Oh well, really didn't need another kayak.

Really good to see old friends and meet new people and Ab Puppy. Sorry if I didn't remember everybody's name. It's hard for us senior citizens.  :smt005 The demo kayaks and paddles were really cool. The Calypso looks like an awesome lightweight yak and the RTM looks like something out of a James Bond movie. I may have to replace my P15 with a Calypso. It would be great for commando fishing the central coast for short to intermediate paddle distances. The food was off the hook as usual. Andy - thanks for heating my chicken adobo and returning my ice chest.  :smt006

When I came up the idea and organized the first Crabfest @ Half Moon Bay two years ago, I never thought a crabbing derby would get this popular.  A BIG THANKS to Victor and Dan and all of the others who helped or sponsored this event.  Victor took the challenge and brought the Crabfest to a whole new level. :notworthy:

Congrats to Jonesz and all of the winners!

Me too. I sent Allen a PM.

I looked into this.  The individual pics were ok, but you probably were uploading multiple pics, the sum of which overflowed the system.  I upped the limit which should fix this.

Stupid software though ... not sure what redirecting you to post a new topic has to do with getting an error about upload size being too big.   :smt011
