Florida Sportsman 2012 Moderator Bash

Florida Sportsman's 2012 Moderator Bash

All work and no play makes for grouchy moderating. So with that in mind Florida Sportsman invited our moderators to spend the Sept 14-16th weekend together for some well earned rest and relaxation...interrupted by a little fishing. The Moderators are all volunteers and for the most part its a thankless job. But, as the saying goes, "someone has to do it." And these guys do an incredible job. The weekend retreat was our way of showing our appreciation for everything they do for the Florida Sportsman community, I thought the rest of you, the members, would like to put a face with your moderator's name and show your appreciation with a thumbs-up or attaboy. Be Nice, without them we wouldn't have a Forum.

A special thanks to Flash (Dave) for capturing the highlights from the weekend with the images and captions below as well as a big "Thank You" to River Palm Cottages in Jensen Beach for hosting the weekend, it was unanimous, we couldn't have had it in a more perfect venue:
