The PORT TOWNSEND WOODEN BOAT FESTIVAL is the same weekend, September 10-12. Spend a day at the festival by anchoring in front of the town and taking dinghy to shore then come to the Steak Feed. 

There will be steaks and baked potatoes furnished by the club. Potluck salads and deserts by members will be needed. We will try to use the one and only shelter and or picnic tables for our barbecue. Steaks will be put on barbecue at 5:00 o'clock.

Members may come by car by driving to Marrowstone Island. Best to look at map for driving directions or see State Park website www.parks.wa.gov for detailed directions. Some are needed to arrive Friday and secure dock-side moorage. Those arriving later may raft, secure to a buoy, or anchor nearby in the bay.
