2014 Rendezvous Recap

We had wonderful weather this year for the 16 boats in attendance. The farthest boat 14 Marinette R_edited-1attendee was from Grosse Ile, MI and the farthest by car from Erie, PA.  Breakdown by boat:

  • 41′ – 1
  • 37′ – 2
  • 34′ houseboat – 1
  • 32′ – 11
  • 28′ – 1

This was the first year since the early years that it was not held the 1st weekend of August and I was told by several people that they were in attendance because of the change in dates. This was confirmed by a near unanimous show of hands of favor of the last weekend in June.

Friday night we had cocktails from 5-7 with hot Hors d’oeuvre provided by the club. Afterwards a group went over to Huron Yacht Club for dinner. On Saturday the festivities began with our potluck luncheon and business meeting. All of the existing club leadership chose to remain in their current posts. We also had the traditional Home Port Basket & Door Prize raffles. Thanks to Lakeland Auto & Marine in Port Clinton for donating a battery towards the raffle.

After lunch, we toured the fleet with voluntary open boats. Nearly everyone participated and it was a great time to see improvements and new ideas on other boats. We had another cocktail party leading up to dinner, catered by the Mesenbergs of Huron and served by the bridge. Later, many attendees drifted down to the boat basin and listen to the music playing in the nearby HBB amphitheater.

Sunday morning dawned bright and clear with a catered breakfast of egg strata, sausage, fruit and pastries. After, it was time to start up the engines and make the long trip back to members’ home ports.

Special thanks to the Rendezvous Organizing Committee for all their hard work and planning: Leslie Tighe, Nancy Plosker & Dale DeMane, Deanna & Bill Chappelear, Pat & John Colvin, Phil & Kathy Benco, Becky Aumiller, Don & Mary Kishmarton,  Don & Kris Steiner, and Roger & Bernie McCoy.

We had some new faces and old ones this year. If you were there, please post your thoughts and stories in the comments. Hope to see you there next year and if you had a good time, please bring a friend.

When you check in at the rendezvous we will let you know when you will be performing your “Magic Trick”.  It will be at one of our cocktail parties.    Be ready to dazzle us!!!

**Here are places to look for your “tricks”:   Local magic shops, librarys, madhattermagicshop.com and other websites.
