I cannot help but feel that I am the cause of this. My cancellation affected quite a few people with the camping cost, as well as some after convention plans. I believe that I have offered to pick up the tab on the additional group camp sites. No skin off my back, I am happy to do so. I said I would be there, and now I won't. Let me pay. Anyone who really knows me, knows that my house is yours, and I would offer the shirt off my back. As for the after convention plans I apologize.
BUT..... My family, my business, come before fish. I do not get paid vacation. As a business owner, when a big customer says jump, I jump. Believe me I would rather be at the convention!
If I am way off base here, and am not a major factor in this, then please correct me. Otherwise please understand that I really have no choice. I am sorry for any inconvenience, and again will be happy to cover any costs on the camping.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. That's why I said:

"I understand Matt's decision, and I think he made the right one. And it's not any single decision or person that's been made surrounding this year's event, or the rest of the stuff this spring"

But that's buried back 15 posts ago.

Matt don't feel bad, I appologize for having brought you into this. Your decision hasn't affected anything, the guy is going to let us camp with 6 people. We had to piecemeal it afterwards, but it's worked out. I understand your situation, and it's not situations like that which bother me, nor are they the situations I'm talking about.

Those situations are far more fickle.

No need to apologize. Those after convention plans would have been fun, but we can always do that some other time, maybe some other place. Perhaps we are better off getting our convention fish home and in tanks sooner, anyway. Feeding your family comes first. If anybody has a problem with that (I'm sure nobody does), that's his problem. Get your big project done, and we'll see you later this summer. PM me no later than tonight if you want me to keep an eye out for anything at the convention for you.
