The venue of the Tradewinds will not be the Elks Lodge. It is being planned to be back in Key Largo, based out of Gilberts.
Gilberts tore down the big barn and there is a lot of room there for lots of boats.
We had a lot of trouble at the Elks Lodge doing seminars in April -- they charged us a fortune to use the beach, didn't want to open the rest rooms, and got all sorts of flack from the Campers. In other words, we were treated as scum.
We canceled the second of the two seminars from the ELks and moved it to Gilberts.
The reason is the guy that invited us there in the first place is a sailor and now was demoted from the board of directors (or whatever) and a camper/RV lover guy took over.
THey were upset that we held meetings in the Chickee Hut on the beach -- we were blocking their view.
