Season’s Greetings from PSGBOA and a Big Announcement!!
I hope this Holiday Season finds you healthy and anxious to get 2020 behind us. PSGBOA has been busy planning events to allow us to gather again. Traditionally, the annual Rendezvous has been held Mothers’ Day weekend in Roche Harbor. In 2020 we, along with 51 other groups, had to cancel our Roche Harbor events. In 2021 if we committed to holding our regular rendezvous in May, it’s unlikely we could hold educational seminars and group social events. Instead, Roche has offered to host our group from 15 September thru 19 September when COVID-19 restrictions are (hopefully) lessened and we can plan the party we want. So, the 2021 PSGBOA Annual Rendezvous will be held in Roche from the 15th of September thru the 19th of September.
But wait, there is more! In 2021 we will be hosting the first PSGBOA Shakedown Cruise in Roche Harbor over Mother’s Day weekend, May 5 thru 9. We suspect we’ll be unable to hold organized group events, but we can certainly bring our boats together, socialize responsibly, and reconnect after a two-year hiatus.
More information about these events will be available on the PSGBOA website and Facebook pages in the coming months, but we wanted to get the word out early so you can plan your boating season. 2021 Rendezvous Chairs J.J. and Kathy Jones as well as the Rendezvous Committee have been actively meeting to develop programs and outings that will make the 2021 boating year worth remembering.
Also, there are many new GB owners who may not be on our mailing list. If there is a GB boat owner in your marina that has not been to the Rendezvous, please reach out and invite them. They can join by simply filling out the form on our website. And remember, we are always soliciting volunteers to help with planning!
