The 18th Annual Alberg 37 Fall Rendezvous was held at the Assenmacher dock  near Kinsale , VA on Saturday/Sunday, October 9-10, 2010 .  The event really began a bit earlier with the arrival of MISCHIEF (Kip and Linda Newbould's 1970 MK-I Yawl) on Wednesday before the Rendezvous.  Of course, Tom and Kaye Assenmacher's 1975 MK-II Yawl SHEARWATER was already at her home berth at their dock.  Then HERON (Rob and Julie Lee's 1981 MK-II Yawl) arrived on Friday afternoon.  Also arriving (drive-ins) were Henk DeVries of Cobourg, ON (PAWBEE); Wayne and Sherrill Bower of Bowie, MD (TEELOK); Lou and Jean Wayne of Rochester, NY (PIKA); Mark and Debbie Crowe of Toronto, ON (SEA CYCLE - Currently on the hard in Panama); Ian Dunn and friend Jennifer of Milford, CT (VECTIS); and Catherine Bennett of Lancaster, VA (TWO TARS).  Others attending the Rendezvous were friends/neighbors/A-37 Wannabees: Della Noone of Toronto; Sandy Romer of Welland, ON; Becky and Jerry Knop of Reisterstown, MD; Don and Judy Polifka of Kinsale, VA; Hubert and Pam Sears of Jacksonville, FL; Geoff Cunliffe of Mississauga, ON (former owner of the 1979 MK-II Sloop THE EVERDEN); Carol and Richard Hackett of  Solomons, MD;  Ralph and Sally Sell of Richmond, VA anchored off the dock in their Pearson 35 SANDPIPER.

Those arriving on Friday enjoyed a pot luck dinner on Friday evening along with a lot of 'sea stories', renewed acquaintances and a good time was had by all!  Saturday dawned with perfect Rendezvous weather - sunny with crisp early fall temperatures.  Saturday's events included 'crab picking' where a bushel and a half steamed local Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs were consumed.  Later on Saturday, a hot dog and hamburger BBQ was held, along with Becky's (Knop) famous Crab Soup!

Sunday's weather was a repeat of Saturday's, and most folks left by late Sunday, although a few stayed over until Monday.  A great time was had by all!!
