The 18th Annual Alberg 37 Fall Rendezvous was held at the Assenmacher home  near Kinsale , VA on Saturday/Sunday, September 17-18, 2011.  Unfortunately, due to the recent Hurricane IRENE,  Tom and Kaye Assenmacher's 1975 MK-II Yawl, SHEARWATER was the only Alberg 37 in attendance for the Rendezvous.  

Also arriving (drive-ins) were Henk and Wendy DeVries of Cobourg, Ontario (PAWBEE); Wayne and Sherrill Bower of Bowie, MD (TEELOK); Lou and Jean Wayne of Rochester, NY (PIKA); Joran and Lin Gendell of Williamsburg, VA (ELIXIR); Ron and Cindy Strahm of Independence, MO (ENVY); and Wayne and Cindy Milroy of Oshawa, Ontario (LEEWAY II); Kip and Linda Newbould of Coles Point, VA (MISCHIEF); and Wil Hewett of Charleston, SC (FLORENCE GRAY). 

Others attending the Rendezvous were friends/neighbors/A-37 Wannabees Becky and Jerry Knop of Reisterstown, MD; Don and Judy Polifka of Kinsale, VA along with friends Jim and Susan Poole of Charlottesville, VA;  Rod and Polly Mercker of Lottsburg, VA; and Al and Rachel Zmurchak of Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

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 drizzle/rain and cool weather, which persisted the entire weekend, eliminating congregating on the dock!   Saturday's events included 'crab picking' where a bushel of steamed local Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs were consumed (in the garage due to the rain).  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 mid-day on Sunday.  A great time was had by all in spite of the weather!!
