Did I say the Food was Good?
Group IQ is inversely proportional to the size of the group.

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

It was awesome meeting all of you guys. Thanks Vwool and Dan for setting up the event. I'm definitely looking forward to the next Crabfest/Ncka meet.

I trained a lot harder for eating, than crabbing, for this event and here are the results.
The food was.....WOW!
I gotta say Marvin's red chowder was the best clam chowder I've ever had and with respect to all, the best dish at Crabfest.  A close second was the dutch oven cobbler that hit Chadrock and Sarah's camp Saturday evening (who was that?).  That was the only cobbler I've ever tried that didn't need ice cream because it was so buttery and rich.
Thanks Everyone!

I wished I didn't miss the Saturday night parties but sure glad I was able to make it on Sunday. Awesome job Victor and Dan and everyone else that was involved on making this event happen for all of us to enjoy. Thanks to the sponsors as well. It was a pleasure meeting new folks and seeing old friends again. See you all soon.

Thanks to all. Even though I am a newbee, I felt welcomed and a part of a great group. Never thought a rock crab would be so rewarded. That new crab trap is a unique design. Will try it out soon.

Glyn -congrats on a well deserved victory. You are one of NCKA's best anglers and put in a lot of time on the water. A first class guy too. I'll give you some better competition next year.

This was my last crab trip for the 2011-2012 season which was the best crab year I have ever had. I can honestly say, after over 100 crabs, I need to find some fish.  :smt005 All that said, I really enjoyed the last of my wife's famous crab cakes for the last time until November. Crabfest was a perfect way to end my crab season. Thanks one last time to Victor and Dan. You guys rock. NCKA is a brotherhood and sisterhood like no other. Sunday was really something special as is every NCKA get together.

Ok, try this link for crabfest pics!  Its my FB page, so if it doesn't work, friend me! (Tracey Ziomek)  I can't seem to upload any directly here from my mac (user error undoubtedly).

THANKS to everyone who helped make Sal's trip out from NY for his first time crabbing, and on top of that, out of a kayak!...a time to remember!  He has called my twice since to tell me how great the food was!!!   :smt007
