Our regrets

Sounds like a great run. We are sorry that we will not be able to attend this run, sounds like a lot of fun.
While you guys are have fun on the Delta we will be driving from Yakama to Tacoma around the south side of Mt. Rainier. We all should get some great shots. Looking forward to seeing Barbs pics of the run.

Onboard ice cream

I vote for ice cream onboard. We have 2 hours for it. I believe there is a grocery store at Discovry Bay. Ebonysky would bring the party plates/cups and spoons. I think the boat would have a refer, too. Once we get off the boat we will head for home anyway.

We Thought of that!

Barb has asked the Captain if he had freezer room for us to bring ice cream aboard, and I haven't heard if he has replied back to her, as yet.:confused:

We checked out the Starbuck's and the grocery store just outside Discovery Bay to do just what you're suggesting.:thumbs: Still haven't heard if it was feasible.

Put in the Ice Cream Run after the cruise, just in case the on board ice cream doesn't pan out.:willy:

I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream

I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream

Okay so I finally said screw the email and called Capt Morgan directly, Ice cream on board it is. Ed and I will be sweeping as we pull into Discovery Bay and will peel off to the store to buy ice cream for our cruise. I plan on just grabbing some boxes of ice creams to put in their freezer on board. See you all Sunday. Barb:thumbs:

Can you pick up something special?

Raspberry Sorbet (Small container) for Phyllis!:D

I would say that the offer for plates and spoons by Bawana Bill and Bawana Momma is a good one? Yes?
