We have many new members that boat on the Chesapeake. I'm trying to think of a spot that would be central to all. Solomon's comes to mind. We had our first rendezvous there and it seems to be good for those coming from VA. and points south. Herrington Harbor was great but it was a hike for the southerners.

So, what do you think?

Let's get some suggestions going. After we choose the place the next hurtle is the date.

Aye. Solomons is an excellent venue for the rendezvous. I would further suggest Solomons Yachting Center. They have good facilities (floating docks, pool, bar, showers, open space for a cookout) and they are close to town.

Wow! I see what happens when you are'nt paying attention! Regretfully, I will have to pass on the coordinator for now. I would love to help, but with my current work schedule and what it will be the next 3 years, it is hard to commit to something like this. I will be lucky to get that Friday off to come to the party. I am sure I will be able to help out with something, and will be glad to do so, any way I can. If Butch can arrange for a dock bunny bikini contest, Im sure I can help out with the judging! Richard did such a great job last year, and with his new "traveling office", it should be a snap! I just hope I get invited back on the tuna trip next year so I can bring some more steaks.

O.k. Carl. I have you committed for the 2012 rendezvous. You have plenty of time to plan. I may even have my TE35 by then. :wink:

Susan and i would love to meet everyone at AOG at Solomon's. We love Soloman's. Especially Stoney's crab cakes and the TIKI bar. Yep the TIKI bar. Might have some confidence in LIQUID THERAPY by then. Replacing all hoses EVERYWHERE now. Love that old Lehman too. Used it for a floor furnace in our slip last night with the NorEaster IDA. 30 42 kts at Stingray Point ( http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=44058 most of the afternoon and night. NO electricity and NO Generator and the dock underwater at LOW tide. We had a nice time with nothing. Check www.sailblogs.com/memeber/liquidtherapy.

No date set yet. Possibly the same weekend as the New England rendezvous? We could try the Internet link again.
