Title: GS11 - 5/20/17 - Sign up by 4/20/17
Post by: LoletaEric on October 16, 2016, 10:36:30 PM
Registration is now open for GS11.  I've revised the qualifications sheet and the rules recently, so check it out.

This just in (as of 1/25/17) - We WILL have a new kayak as part of the raffle.  Our own RacinRob has confirmed a Wilderness Systems boat again - thank you, Rob!!  Each participant gets an entry toward the Grand Prize kayak.

While some details are still up in the air about the shirt and ink colors and the format of the raffle, most of the other Gimme Shelter traditions are part of this year's plan as usual.  We'll have Gyotaku fish printing where kids 15 and under will print for free and possibly win a cash prize.  We'll have a potluck and raffle awards ceremony hopefully at the campground pavilion as it's been the last few years, and I think KayakJack and his volunteer army will bring back the awesome Tack Shack.  We'll have a safety meeting down at the ramp where my laptop might fly or my vehicle may instantly become disabled!  We'll have a fishing tournament where I've added a species - starry flounder, just to keep it interesting.  We'll hopefully have great diving and pre-fishing water and beautiful sunny days to enjoy the Lost Coast and each other in the world class setting of Shelter Cove.

I've added to the application and qualification sheet, and I appreciate everyone being patient about complying with what still amount to very basic paperwork requirements. 

Registration fees have remained unchanged since GS4.  Shirt prices are the same as last year, but I'm only offering a zip hoodie this year - they're more pricey at $50.  They'll be cool, and I know at least Won's gonna buy one.  :)  Also, I learned from the hat production last year.  The hats will be high quality and are $25.

The bottom line for this event is celebrating the NCKA community.  Prizes and commercialism have been identified as secondary priorities.  I plan to make the event everything that it's been leading up to this point, and my goal is always to enjoy it immensely at the same time.  I look forward to spending time with my NCKA family.  :smt001

Discussion can continue at whatever pace is desired.  I'll likely get revved up now and then over the coming months and do some pic dumps and video archive revivals of past GS's and Shelter Cove stuff from over the years.  Please feel free to do the same. 

Part of what has become my GS Scheme is to tone down the buildup, and that way hopefully only those who really want some GS will be the ones to attend.

Thanks - please post questions on this thread, and I'll keep it checked and updated.

Probably won't maintain an updated roster this year, so be sure to get in touch with me if you don't get a welcome email.  Anyone ever not gotten a welcome email?

Thanks Eric,
I can hardly wait for May
Verna will block out the date and start contacting those who have already reserved rooms in the next few weeks. We will also post up if any rooms are still available.
Also,
Verna would like to remind everyone that she manages a vacation home just up the road that is also available during the event.

Thanks again for all the work and dedication put into making this the premier event of the year.
Let me know if you need any help with anything

Advisory:  it could change if DFW changes things up regarding rockfish/lingcod opener.  This is 99% solid though...

This is likely. Mendocino management area proposal to move the opener to May 1 is one of the topics for discussion at the fish and game commission meeting this week in Eureka.

Good info, Doug - thx.

I think I'd leave the event at 5/20/17 even if the opener moves up.

BTW, Mother's Day will be 5/14/17.  :smt001

You're saying keep it on the 20th, is that because of the Mother's Day conflict or is it because that early in May the weather and swell to unpredictable?

3.  Allow for the take of all species with no depth restrictions
November 1 through December 31 in the Northern and
Mendocino Management Areas;

Can't wait , gonna make sure to make it back this year!

Also like this one area of change, this could open up some crazy big fish in the later part of the year!

It's because I'd like to keep it simple and consistent with past events, and the rockfish/lingcod opener isn't even as big of a deal as maybe it used to be.

It did occur to me though that I like the weather patterns of mid May - even compared to early May.

Martin - I've always liked light gray zip ups...  I'm open to suggestions, and I may be able to offer color choices for the zip up hoodies - like black, gray or tan...

With the zipper I'll be changing the art for the front - my thought is to have the NCKA "linghead vector" in a smaller size at the chest pocket location.

I was considering dropping the NCKA linghead vector because I've printed at least a couple thousand pieces with it over the past 6 years, but I will be keeping it.

The back of the shirts and hoods may just have the "yakker image" with a small GS11 reverse printed on the hull of the yak.

Simplicity - I'm feelin' it.  :smt001

I just talked to my hood and shirt people - I'm going with gray on the zip up hoodies.

On the hats I'll likely go black again.

Haven't finalized the ink color - open to suggestions.  I want something that pops hard - like UV purple.

Dont trust your monitor(they are all different), you should look at a pantone color library before you decide.  You've probably seen one before.  Most printers have them.

Just in case you forgot,
Those who are booked at the Tides Inn for this event, Verna has now called everyone twice to confirm your dates. Please reply to Verna to be sure you get the dates you want.
We have other guests trying to book around this event, but want you to have first pick on days.
Again, if you have already confirmed your dates, you are good, we just need the last couple of you to confirm.
Thanks again,
