**And "hosting" simply means that you choose the anchorage (or marina if that's what you'd prefer but, again, the original intent was raft ups).-D Ferron
Donna, I believe that was YOUR original intent. Some of us have presented differing ideas. I think a combo of both would be great.
Donna, I am somewhat curious as to why you have not volunteered to host a date yet being as you were so gung ho about this. Since you believe in a raft up, pick a date and get us together. We certainly will come to a raft up
Actually we have been having impromptu get together long before you suggested this so it really was not a new idea thus the 4th Annual Sailnet Rendezvous at the MYC every June, but your thoughts in this certainly have added to the group.
Any way to get Sailnetters together is really a great thing thing. If you look back though the blog you will see a number of us have volunteered to "captain" a get together whether a raft up or a land/ raft up adventure. The nice thing about the land and raft up adventure is that those who can’t get there or don’t have multiple days can come by car also. (I Think Bubblehead, Wingnwing, us again (Chef2sail) have all proposed to host/ captain dates already. Some are raft ups and some are combos. I think it great Adams has stepped forward especially since it involves our southern areas. I want o get together with Sabreman and his wife again so hopefully they would come, and there are plenty of members on here like zzgat who can’t make it this far north who I would like to meet.
Adams- Thank you for coming forward and being willing to plan this. We certainly would come to Spring Cove, but by car as it is a 75 miles sail for us and we can’t do it easily on a weekend by sail but would drive down to meet people.. I am sure if you host this some of other “brother and sister" sailnetters from the southern Chesapeake would be able to come also. Like T37chef we love Spring Cove and have been there a number of times. Perfect place for a get together and the boats that come could either anchor
or take slips. Solomon’s holds a very special place in my heart as I remember stopping there many times as a child in sailing adventures.
This isn’t meant to stir up controversy, but either way you decide to do it Adams...would be great. If it’s St Leneords (an awesome place to anchorage) we won’t be able to get there and back comfortably unless we have three days. If it’s Spring Cove...we are in by car. Just don’t have a raft up in the creek where the fish factory is (I forget its name) it’s terrible there.
