BOB FEST 2017 - Thank You!!

The results as to funding $$ we earned has yet to be determined but two things are very clear. For the first time in any similar undertaking we worked, the events staff ensured that we volunteers were provided the same food and condiments that were afforded to the attendees. Jim Keck made a glutton of himself with the steamed oysters and they were good as was the BBQ. As for the parking detail and the plan, both were outstanding. The plan and layout was developed by Johnny Northon and the parking crew itself was one of the best I have worked with. We covered a lot of ground with a hell of lot of cars to park safely and did it with what I refer to as a minimal number to do the job. Thanks to each and everyone of you for hanging in there with me when the rush of cars hit and then became relentless. This list includes relief of three folks who had to go due to other commitments at midday. What a crew; thank you for also making it fun.

Chris Garrett, Gary Cassell, Lawrence Rotruck,Jimmie Carter, Earle Southard, Lynn Moran, John Brannis (JB), Jim Keck, James Hartman, Brian Mullery & Marsha Oliver.
