Discussion of 2004 schedule of events…..areas sponsoring cruise and landed events and it was suggested to go from 10 month to 6 month with 3-4 to be cruise with land access and 2-3 to be landed events during non cruising months

To rotate schedule of events so not to hit holidays, graduations and Husky Football weekends. To select destinations where anchor out is an option in addition to moorage to assist in individual financial situations.

Understand members due to family and other time demands cannot make all meetings and be understanding.

OCTOBER 10-11-12 2003 PORT ORCHARD MARINA ANNUAL FREE STEAK DINNER CRUISE AND MEETING

The Marina has reserved 10 slips on the Guest Dock #2 for our group (slips 2-12) and additional slips will be made available if necessary.. They would like us to put the larger vessels (40+) on the breakwater side of the dock and the shorter ones on the boathouse side. You will have a slip assigned to you. The fee for the 40 foot slips are $20.00 plus $.50 for any boat length over 40 feet….the breakwater side of the guest dock allows over hang and more room to maneuver. All of the slips reserved for us are 40 foot. Reservation for Moorage….will be made through me.

We have the use of the Guest Float which is covered over the table area and we will need to bring our own chairs off the boats for seating….the BBQ is provided and requires a $25 deposit and Hold Harmless Agreement….refundable after we are done and is returned cleaned. We will need to provide our own charcoal (Wolfe will take care of).

Plans – This year the club will provide the meat and potato (butter, sour cream, BBQ Sauce, garlic & onion powder) with the salad, snacks, beverage & dessert potluck. Please bring your own plates and silver.

I will need reservations for Moorage and BBQ to Mary by evening of Monday, 06 October…. - The reason for this dead line is we are bringing the Boat down and it takes two days to get there from Blaine we will arrive Friday the 10th. I have arranged with a local market to provide the meat for us and they need a day to cut and package for me to pick up just before we leave.

We will be receiving a guest package from the Marina which will contain coupons etc. from local businesses.

Agenda for the BBQ weekend is again anyone there Friday either potluck or dine out; following Saturday arrival, fellowship, BBQ 1700 Social Hour on Float with Grill starting about 1800. We will have salt, pepper etc. for the Grill…if you have something special please bring it along. Sunday departure can be preceded by a potluck brunch with time to be decided.
