Looper Palooza 2023

Shelly, Ray, and Ray’s brother Russ arrived in Ft Meyers FL for this week’s Looper Palooza event.

The three of us presented on “Our Great Loop Experience” to the crowd of about 250 Loop Planners and Gold Loopers at this event.

AGLCA events are always worthwhile. https://www.greatloop.org/
We got to rekindle friendships that began on our Loop! Ray, Marilyn Antonacci, Shelly and Jim A after checking in at the registration booth. SPINNING DREAMS III and Shellerina met up at several ports along the way.

We particularly enjoyed presentations by the Costas on cruising the Bahamas , and by the Fullers on cruising the Down-east Canadian Loop!

Shelly facilitated a round table discussion on Galley Tips. All chairs were soon filled with fun-loving attendees after this pic was taken.

Ray facilitated a round table about the popular Looper boat, Mainship 350/390.

There were *some* signs of hurricane Nicole, but most of Fort Meyers has recovered. Several Looper friends of ours lost their boats in that hurricane, including Marilyn and Jim Antonacci.
This Ft Meyers municipal marina is where Shelly and I spent Thanksgiving 2021! It is right in the thick of things in that town, close to great eating on First St!
