Ok all, the time for the CBMSG is soon arriving! Weigh in on your arriving. The gathering, cookout, small craft flotilla, and party is set for August 13. The cocktail hour is 4ish with music, hotdogs, burgers, cold drinks, beer and wine to follow . A $5 buck contribution is asked from all to the small sailing club having their/our gathering there at the same time for all the food, and drinks. They have encouraged me to have us Compacteers join them, well we are part of that group too! It was also asked that we kinda split up bringing a side of beans, condiments for the burgers and dogs etc. to go with the same and other sides being brought by others in the club. Be glad to help coordinate that for us.
The pavilions are shaded and covered with, ice, cool clean bathhouses, and the usual amenities available. Very parklike there. We don't have to wait until 4. Check the thread for the local motel for simple lodging, and Willaby's Restaurant incase the weather doesn't cooperate. We are planning to get the antique dinghy wet. Bring some small craft easy to transport, there are also a few kayaks and canoes are on site. Nice islands close by. The previous posts have links to everything but check out http://www.regentpointmarina.com
for location, directions, and general lay of the land. Do try to come for more than just a day, as there is much to do and some good places to visit very close by.
I propose we shoot for a mid day gathering time again for those can can be there then, with some being out in small craft, followed by the cookout, social time, music and hanging around boats!
Based upon the first ever CBMWG the CBMSG looks to be an event where memories will be carried. Oh, BTW Bob, i encourage you to try to drink the last beer this time. You're gunna have competition! Also all don't let PeterG's musings about us sailors having to "burn our sails and and rev our motors" before he comes be of any concern. We are all hoping he has that Tug by then! He has sailed more craft than many!
