The Gulf from Margaritaville in Panama City Beach was crystal clear and glassy calm!

The bus to Pineapple Willy's. I couldn't resist capturing a

Corvette Assembly Plant Engineer, on a bus: Eric Millette in black cap.

Saturday evening banquet, auction (for National Corvette Museum)
& 50/50 (for American Cancer Society)

The auction, with Kelly Walker, Jim Robertson and Steve Grilli, is the most entertaining you will ever see... especially as the lineup of empties expands! The total for the NCM was $12,000!

The 50/50 that I did produced an even $1000 pot, so the winner and the American Cancer Society each got $500!

With Glenn's $25 made for $525.00 for ACS!

(ps: the poolside margarita party wrapped up @ 1:30am, an hour short of last year!)
