Hi everyone !!!
Late June the "Pirates" took over Bremerton Marina and everyone came dressed and their boats decorated beyond belief. Congratulations to Nippintuk ... a great job! Who knew a "Tattoo Parlor" would be so busy, and the Grog Barrel would flow so fast.
We were blessed with wonderful weather, thanks to our 'Weather Witch' Debbie!
Friday got off to a Super start with our Lunch organized by Judy and Don, and the day ended with a SUPER BBQ by 'Chef Mike'. We are so lucky to have such talented people in our group.
Thanks to the Navigator Factory who supplied our tents, tables, chairs, and linens. Thanks to Sundance for their great Saturday night dinner, helped along by our own personal “Friday Night Chef”, Mike. Thanks to “Sundance Ken” for all the gifts to our winners of the Costume, and Treasure Hunt participants. Everyone found their slip assignment guided by Lyle and his crew of Pirates!
Thanks to Beth and Ferd who spear headed the Treasure Map Hunt; it was the best and got everyone out and about.
Our Raffle was loaded with wonderful gifts, and every boat went away with some of the booty! Thanks Rip-on and Harmony, and many others!!
We added a couple of new seminars, “Chef Mike” helped us understand our Conv/Micro ovens, and the 'Two Snooty Chefs' represented by "One" gave us a wonderful demo of delicious BBQ meats, as well as doing Fri. night hors d’oeuvres. John Ranallo, from the Navigator Factory, updated us on developments at the factory and answered many questions.
Then there is the glue that holds us all together our 'ROSTER', thanks to Judy she has all our contact info so we can continue to keep connected all year long, it's a big job.
For those of you who were not able to attend, we missed you and hope you can save the date next year!
"2010 Navigator Rendezvous" will be held Aug. 27-28-29 in Roche Harbor!! (Maybe Thurs the 26th too!!)
Enjoy the rest of the Cruising Season and help us seek out other Navigator Owners.
Thanks to the whole 2009 group!! Everyone helped put on the best Rendezvous yet !!!
Don and K
