Hi, Gee. The combination of personable men, beautiful scenery, and wonderful music, made "Bears by the Sea 2008" a memorable event. Everyone was warm and friendly from the start, which made it easy for someone like me -- a first timer -- to have a good time and feel comfortable. From start to finish it was so enjoyable. While, of course, the dinner show was the most special of the events, they were all well done. The informal nature of the gatherings allow for attendees to do as much (or as little) as they like. The breakfast was a hearty one and an opportunity to catch up on the evening's goings-on. The singers at the show were exceptional. The food was some of the best I've had. The dancing afterwards was the perfect cap to the night. As I said, from the start, at the opening evening event and game night, I knew it was going to be a worthwhile weekend from all the quality people there. I look forward to more.
