Rumgatta Crew - Open Forum
Thursday, September 25, 6:00 - 7:30 - Porch.
Hi--Lately, I have been getting lots of emails regarding specific details on Rumgatta.  I will be at the club as noted above.  If you and/or your volunteer team need assistance, have questions, need to iron out detail, etc, please come by and visit.  Sometimes it is easier to resolve matters quicker in person.  We'll can work through all outstanding issues at this time.  If you need assistance but can not attend at this time, please give
me a call or E-Mail.
Again, thank you for your support of this event!  Without you, this event would not be possible.

Catalina 350 Rendezvous at TSS
TSS will be the host site for the
Catalina 350 Rendezvous.  There will be about two dozen guests at the club
this weekend.  We will be using the clubhouse for presentations and
discussions, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinners.  Friday night we will
occupy the new deck area for a cookout.  Any TSS members are welcome to join
the discussions and presentations.  If you want to attend any of the meals,
a contribution and reservation would be needed.

I will need every available empty slip and dock space at TSS.  I have let the dockmaster know that we will be blocking the use of the rail that
weekend with three boats between the docks.   If your slip is available for the weekend, please let me know.   If you plan to dock at the club that
weekend, please coordinate with me.

Thanks for your cooperation for this event.  Please contact me if you have
any concerns or questions.

Hello friends,

I just signed this petition about possible Florida anchoring restrictions. Check it out and do some research about what could be happening in our state that will affect all cruisers, sail and power.

Please complete this Survey and let your voices be heard.

Thank you,
