Registration is now CLOSED!

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.

The gear will have purple ink, and this year we'll have zip hoodies instead of pullovers.  The raffle will benefit PIF and HOW, and 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 at the campground pavilion as it's been the last few years, and KayakJack and his volunteer army will bring back the awesome Taco 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.  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?  Check your junk mail folder, Disney!  :smt005

I will post the roster soon.

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.

It won't be finalized but it has steam.

Live your life, the way you want to be remembered. Don't have any regrets, we only get this one dance to make it count. Start at your eulogy, and work backwards.

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?
