This is a great trip, and a lot of fun.

Let the planning begin!


Alex has scored us the condo we used last year with the multiple decks. I must ask that all participants please refrain from nekkid moonbathing as it tends to make the late night seagulls sick......... :P

Please sign up and note if you need a room. I want to get room and boat assignments started as soon as feasible.


We decided tonight at the board meeting that we are devoting Sunday morning to giving back a little to the area and are having a trash pick-up on the jetties. You will be fed another fantastic Pavon Paella  8) for supper, compliments of the club. YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO HELP WITH THE CLEANUP ON SUNDAY. I'm no hippy, tree hugging liberal, but it's about time we all gave a little back to community and to the environment.  All in all, it should be a fun weekend! Be there or be trapezoid!

I am in and will need a bed.
