Hey Bob, Susan and I are a tentative yes. We do have a yearly affair that has not been set in stone yet (not our ability to chisel!) but has always occurred within the first two or three weekends in March. As soon as we know that date we will move to definitely coming or regrets. The venue sounds fine but since you asked for other ideas can only suggest Annapolis, the self proclaimed sailboat capital of the world! Meanwhile we do look forward to your presence at CBMWG 2.0 the month before. Remind Linda that there will be other Admirals present! I know Pedro and Becky will be sad if she does not come! I am working on that beer truck!

How's that Flicka?!  :)

Admiral Linda usually attends the Mid Winter Gatherings up here in NJ. Actually, she hasn't missed one so I'd expect her to be at this one if for no other reason but to make sure I stay under control. I'll work on getting her to the CBMWG.
No news on the Flicka yet...it's not officially for sale but it should be. I might try using Jedi mind control on he owner...

Admiral Suzie likes that date so I guess that means we are in.
Good job, Bob!

Ok...so March 11th is on the top of the list. Any dissenters will be forced to drink Bud Light!

So listen up, mates:
  Today the Admiral spent the day in beautiful Cape May, NJ. (Yes, NJ has beautiful places). And the discussion came around to the epic and upcoming FAMWG and the idea of holding it at Lucky Bones in Cape May. There are some very nice places to stay for those travelling and it's not tooooo far for anyone else.
  I've eaten there a number of times and found the food fine and there are a number of good beers on tap, one being Allagash White. So, think about it...fortunately we have plenty of time to decide.

Aaarrgh... Here I was all set for Pat's Pizza and Bistro. At least a 10 minute walk for me! Let's see, 110 miles at 3 mph would be a mere 37 hours (not counting any rescues!). That would be without factoring in tides. So, I guess I had better plan on leaving the previous weekend! Good thing I'm retired. Oh, I've been informed by the Admiral that I'd be sailing solo!

If you sailed down the Delaware, just before you get to the end of NJ, hang a quick left into the Cape May Canal and Lucky Bones is on the right, just before a bridge of some sort. Ya can't miss it. Easy peasy!

If I tow my boat, it'll take 9.5 hrs.  If not, 8.5 hrs.
Don't count on me to make it there.
Someplace near Baltimore  or Philly close to an Amtrak station would likely get me there for a late lunch.

This is just the kind of feedback I want. The ultimate goal if for as many of us to attend as possible. If Moshulu is better for most, we'll have it there. Tim, in NJ a late lunch is the same as an early dinner, capeche?

I'm detecting a trend here...or a conspiracy! Sort of the same. So, Moshulu pulls ahead as they come around the first turn...

And coming out of the first turn, Moshulu continues to pull ahead.

Moshulo has our vote.  It saves us a bunch of driving and we have friends in Philly that we could look up.
