Rendezvous 2018
Rendezvous 2018 was another great success. In fact, many of the participants said that it was one of the best we have had. The only slight disappointment was the fact that only 18 boats were registered but only 13 made it due to last minute cancellations for either mechanical or medical issues. But, everyone was in a great mood and, possibly because of that and the smaller number, there was more socializing and boat visiting than has been the case in the past. Thursday evening enough of us were there so we had an informal dock party. Catherine and Lori greeted the members when they arrived for check in and pointed out the wonderful regalia items they could buy. This year we added reproduction doormats. These mats would have come with every CCM boat when it was delivered to the original owners. If you didn’t get one, they will be there next year or you can order one, and other items from Al Crompton at any time. The one additional event that we tried this year was an informal tech session on Saturday afternoon. Here all the guys, and a few women, attended to ask questions, discuss problems, and make suggestions regarding the operation and maintenance of the boats. It went very well and we did, in fact, solve a few problems for the members. This year we were pleased to see a number of young people. This is a great event to bring children or grandchildren to as it gets them involved with boating activities. We hope this continues. Here is a series of photos that tell the story.
