Our theme for the weekend is
Each boat is being asked to learn and share a “Magic trick” with the group (non boaters,too!), so start practicing your tricks and be ready to demonstrate your “Magic trick”. 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.
We had 18 boats attend the 2011 rendezvous in Huron, Ohio. Everyone had a great time. Many thanks to Jim and Leslie Tighe and Nancy Plosker for helping to put the event on.
