Update :smt024 So this time next week, many of us may be on the water or heading to the water to get underway. So far we have 10 boats and 25 people attending. If you know of anyone else who would like to come, or may still be on the fence about attending, please contact them and encourage them to join us and register ASAP. I plan to send our roster to Mears on Wednesday or Thursday for tentative slip assignments. That way we’ll have an idea of where we will be, and also anyone who may be arriving late will have at slip assignment that you can confirm by phone mid-to-late afternoon Friday. I plan to go back over to Mears this weekend to look around now that all the boats are out of the parking lots and see what areas we may be able to use for our gathering. I’ll also verify that there are grills for us to cook on and check out the options for seating and tables. We may need to supplement with some of our own. A few outstanding items to follow up with me on via the CSR event thread or email: email@example.com Please let me know if you plan to arrive Friday (afternoon/night) or Saturday. To make sure we have a mix, let me know if you will bring a desert/side/both to the picnic Saturday afternoon. See below for more info. If you would like a vessel safety check, I need to know so I can give Chuck an idea of how many boats (inspection sheets, stickers, etc) he’ll need to plan for, and how much time he’ll be volunteering. Keep an eye on the website thread for updates to the spreadsheet and more follow on information as the week progresses. Any recommendations or suggestions you'd like to add to help make this event fun and a success. Saturday Afternoon (Dinner) Pier-side Picnic Information: To keep things simple, please plan to bring drinks and your own main course for you and your guests. Also, please bring your favorite side and/or desert to share among us all. You should also plan to provide your own cups/plates/silverware etc.
