A message from the Rendezvous Chair …
This year’s PSGBOA Rendezvous at Roche Harbor was attended by 60 boats, including 18 first time attendees. The theme was “South of the Boarder Fiesta”, and the decorations, meals and music carried the theme. From all accounts, the rendezvous was a great success with a number of interesting speakers, a visit by “Carnac the Magnificent”, a rubber ducky race, a fantastic cooking demonstration, and raffle prizes.
We had an excellent group of sponsors who set up exhibit booths next to the taco bar on the dock, and the food contributed by our attendees to Friday’s pot luck and wine/beer tasting event was the best we’ve ever had, and there was plenty of it to be shared! And of course, Roche Harbor did a first class job with Saturday’s wind up cocktail party, raffle and dinner.
We want to thank our sponsors for their valuable support of the event. They help us in many ways as a part of our Grand Banks family, and without their financial support, the cost of attending our rendezvous would double. So we encourage our membership to look to these sponsors first when their services and products are needed. Most of our sponsors have supported us for many years, and they certainly have earned our loyalty.
Finally, we want to thank our PSGBOA Board and Rendezvous Committee for all their work in putting this event together. But rather than mention each one individually here, we are posting a copy of the 2013 PSGBOA Rendezvous Brochure which mentions them and their contributions. The brochure will also allow those who attended the rendezvous to recall all the fun they had, and those who missed it to read about the event and make the decision to attend next year’s rendezvous.
Whether you were able to attend this year’s rendezvous or not, we wish you a great summer of cruising and we hope to see you on the water.
Yours at anchor,
Bill & Brenda Davis
