    Default Red..white..blue #4

    January 21, 2014....expecting 12" of snow and overnight wind chills of minus 10...here in beautiful South New Jersey!

    What better time to start thinking of the 4th annual July 4th celebration at CN!!!!!!

    Although it may be hard to top last year's pink flamingo races over the waterfall...The Captain has a few surprises for everyone to enjoy...

    Let's get this party started...

    The Captain and his first mate....AKA...John and Cheryl Ann...and Murray the monkey too!

    June 29 to July 10....

    Who else plans on joining the party? Are you returning July 4th party goers or newbies?

    Captain needs to have a sufficient supply of Red..White...and Blue for all....

    OK I know if we are freezing down here in Alabama, you guys are REALLY freezing up north. June 28 can't come soon enough for us. Looking forward to warmer weather and seeing Captain, Cheryl Ann, Rick, Jan and all our old and new friends at CN. These thoughts help get me through the winter.

    I don't know about that. My wife won last year and has the t-shirt award to prove it. I demand a rematch!! Flamingo's at 20 paces or a waterfall, whichever works best. We arrive on July 3rd, just in time for the festivities! 60 degrees in Dallas this weekend. Stay warm everyone.

    We will be there again this year - even though we missed everything last year! Hopefully we can get an early flight this year so we can at least be there for pictures and some fun at the swim up bar! We are looking at a temp of -21 on Monday and that doesn't include the -35 wind chill that is supposed to come with it. Can you say BRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! Here's to July in JA!

    Thanks to the early responses!
    I'm sure the "ground swell" will begin soon; as soon as everyone gets done shoveling and shivering.
    Remember that if it comes down to paying your electric/gas bill for the higher usage this winter or your final payment for your CN July 4th vacation your house will be there when you return!!!!!!!!

    Hey Captain! Kevin & Debbie (newbies to CN & Jamaica) will be there June 24-July 4. Unfortunately we'll be missing the July 4th party because we leave that day but we'll try to meet you before. Only 136 days until we arrive to start our dream vacation!!!

    Have a red thong? How about a blue flip flop?
    The Captain is thinking about a Red....White....Blue themed scavenger hunt for this year's July 4th festivities.
    Or maybe the flamingo races at the waterfall might return.
    In any event we hope to outdo last year's donation to the local orphanage through our celebration!

    Captain, the First Lady (cathy) is already in training for the flamingo races. she has to use the tub right now as all water outside is frozen. 6 inches of snow and ice with 0 degrees last nite. july 4th items are hard to find this early. 118 days and counting 7/1-12th. can't wait. our 9th time home to CN. now alittle controversy: jndp says jp won and has the shirt to prove it but the First Lady just told me that she was a substitute jockey for her as they had just arrived and was not yet prepared to race. jp was given the shirt as it was her flamingo but the skill of the jockey helped. irie!!!!

    Will the flamingo controversy be settled? Will there be a red...white...blue....themed scavenger hunt? Maybe human races over the waterfall? An American History quiz? Most "patriotic" couples contest?
    Only those at CN on July 4th at the pool bar at 1PM will know!!!!!!!

    Although we weren't actually there when the race took place, we arrived shortly after. I must say we were the most sober ones at that point I believe the Mayor is correct from the details we were given at that time! Sorry Jndp - that jet fuel must have made things a little fuzzy!!

    Hoping to book a flight that arrives in Mobay at 9:40 am on the 4th. Maybe we'll actually be there for the races this year!!! Yay!!! I only hope I can work up the courage to get back in the ocean - I do not want a repeat of last years exciting events. Doesn't lightning only strike the same place once? I really hope so!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now - Jndp, Chris&Denny, TheMayor&Cathy - what's the countdown?!?! You all know how I am..........

    Way to go Rick...it's 100 days for us...but who's counting....LOL...
    Can you believe we may get a major N'easter snow storm this coming Tuesday in NJ.
    Here's hoping it goes further east and dumps in the Atlantic..
    Still trying to decide on the activities for the 4th.....see my post of March 6th...
    There is even a possibility of rubber ducky races.....mmmmm....decisions...decisions....
    Anyway...based on the replies so far I won't have to pack much stuff as it seems there will be only about 14 of us!!!!!
