Fall Rendezvous 1999
The 1999 fall rendezvous (October 2-3) was a great success. We had the most participation ever with 7 Alberg 37s in attendance, with several others represented by drive-ins. Boats and crews attending the rendezvous included: TEELOK (Wayne and Sherrill Bower); SHEARWATER (Tom and Kaye Assenmacher); TIDINGS (Bryce Inman); SERENADE (Bill Horne and Deb Kinney); SOLSKIN II (John and Becky Long); SCRIMSHAW (Charlie and Jane Deakyne), and PAWBEE (Henk and Wendy DeVries).
Driving in were Marcel and Karen Steinz (SOUTHERN CROSS) from Oakville, Ontario, and Pat and Bill Schrader (PAT SEA) of Orchard Park, NY. John and Becky Long were the PERFECT HOSTS!
As usual, Becky "constructed" her famous crab soup which was consumed (Marcel Steinz was overheard saying that he "needed new lips") following several bushels of the largest Chesapeake Blue Crabs we have ever seen. Our thanks also to the great folks at the North Shore Community who allowed us to "Take Over" their waterfront and use their pavilion, helped with boat repairs, and provided transportation when required. Tentative plans were made to hold the 2000 rendezvous over the same weekend in October next year (place to be determined).
