Looks like a great fun event. You do throw a good party!

Rob jr seems to have been promoted since we last met. From the insignia on his arm, is he a sergeant now?

Thats a great picture of me losing at beer pong, haha! Event was a lot of fun, good meeting you, Robert, and Robert, and Hank.

I got to chat with Gary, the distiller from Cruzan for about 15 minutes, he was very informative, and VERY down to earth, good dude!

And Robert, you disappeared the end of the night, was saying bye too your son and you had vanished, much like most of the rum in Ybor city did!

Paul,

He wears uniforms almost exclusively. His opinions are more in line with a Benevolent Dictator General, but it's hard to find a patch for that rank.

We really enjoyed meeting Adam and his entourage. Great folks. And Hank as well. Gary from Cruzan was a wealth of good information, giving me increased respect for his products and philosophy to making rum. I slipped out about 2am while you beer pong crazies were whoopin' it up at Gaspar's Grotto. Yes, a lot of rum came into town and a lot of it never left!
