Re: Meet Up at Annapolis Boat Show
You'll have trouble finding free, especially on the boat show side of Spa Creek. The bars and restaurants that are nearby will be packed during boat show.
Port Annapolis Marina has a nice community room. BYOB/food and need a slipholder to use. $5 to use the dinghy dock.
Annapolis Landing Marina has a pavilion. Again you'll need a slipholder.
Annapolis Harbor Boatyard has a quonset hut. You'd have to convince John Norton that there is something in it for him. No parking during Boat Show.
J/Port Annapolis has a classroom that might serve but someone (preferably an alum) would have to call. Parking in Eastport will be a nightmare. Water taxi or a walk would work.
Ebb Tide Bar and Grill on Bay Ridge is close enough to drive but far enough not to be too crowded.
If you're already at the Boat Show the Fleet Reserve Club has an inside room that SailNet has used before. You'll need a member. Access from inside and outside the Boat Show.
Eastport Yacht Club has their Boat Show Bash on Saturday night and it is easy to pick a place on the grounds for people to meet up and just expand to the space you need. Tickets are required but anyone can go. See above for parking in Eastport.
Proud Mary's at Chesapeake Harbour Marina is not usually too busy during Boat Show. Lots of parking. The restaurant is pricy but the Tiki bar is fine. Fair weather only.
That's all I can think of.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
