Dustin et al,

Thanks for putting on the event. It was fun to have a goal as I began practicing last weekend with my new polespear. A few snafus like not getting out of the water early enough, forgetting my spear and having to drive back, and creeping traffic made me really late but it was neat to meet you guys anyhow.

For the record- the rubberlip I shot today made a very tasty dinner. I don't know why people dislike them- the flesh was a little soft but very mild and non-fishy tasting. I gutted it in the ocean and put it on ice as soon as I got to the car so it wasn't steaming in its own guts all day.
