Eryka,

When I first mentioned the Wye Island Pavilion, I wasn't aware of the user fee. I do tend to agree with you about that. We'd need a fairly good-sized, committed group to spread the fee. A free/minimal $ space doesn't have that constraint.

John, Erika. I also got Sail With Courtney wrist bands coming. Like the Livestrong wrist bands. We could get some wrist bands to your participants. They could sell them for $2 apiece. Out of the sale price, one dollar goes to Sail with Courtney Cancer research and the other dollar stays with you to pay for your Pavilion or other expenses. What do you think?

I'd be in for the raft-up and any weekend in June would work for me except for the 26th.

Solomons

I vote for Solomons, more specifically up the Patuxent on Mill Creek, Lots of room to raft up and pretty secluded.

If the Rhode/West River area is selected, there are several boat ramps available in a small area for the person who asked.

Holiday Hills Marina boat ramp
Carr's Wharf boat ramp
Casa Rio Marina boat ramp

Plus, I may be able to offer my beach club's boat ramp in Whitemarsh Creek, depending on the size & number of boats. I doubt they'd be happy with me if we launched a fleet, but helping one or two people splash their trailer sail'ers would probably be ok, especially if you park your truck and trailer back at my house, about 30 seconds away.

Rhode River does have a couple ramps near by. Casio Rio have a first rate ramp and then there is Carrs Wharf (dirt Ramp I think but real close to the Rhode River Islands) and Holiday Hill Marina has a good ramp too.

Rhode River has everything except a pavilion. The small beach on Flat Island is there but small and only accessible by dingy. High Island is now awash and nearly gone, more of an obstruction than an island. Also, Rhode River has no other facilities on land, no close by watering holes, etc.

Bubblehead, Thanks! Beach club ramp sounds nice. My boat is 17 feet so two or three guys could probably just toss it into the water if the ramp was blocked. I pull it with either a Sonoma or an old Mercedes so no one-ton crew cab dually hogging all the parking.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

Another possibility in the Rhode River/West River area

Another possibility in the Rhode River/West River area is the West River Anchorage in Galesville. There is still no pavilion, but there is a public dock and parking area. There MUST be a boat ramp in the area and there is 3 watering holes there. Lots of room to anchor and there is a speed limit (6kts) so no waterskiing or fast boats (there is the rogue pwc).

Sealover, if two guys can just toss your boat in then there is a county park ramp across from high Is ( free ) or Holiday marina is only $5.00. Still sounds like Bubble has the best deal for you.

Well......our beach club has a small pavilion in Ponder Cove (Whitemarsh Creek). I'm new in the neighborhood and I don't know what I need to do to reserve it.

Ponder Cove where Holiday Hill Marina is at is kind of small and rafting up a bunch of 40' ers might be difficult. Then again, all you guys with big boats probably have powered dinghies that could reach Ponder Cove in about 5 minutes from your anchorage.

How many people do you think will attend this thing? I don't think our pavilion will cost anything.

I can post pictures of the area if there is enough interest. Let me know.
