Where were YOU on the 11th of July in 1776??? 

We will play a parlor game during Happy Hour on Friday (bring a covered dish to share or just bring goodies for yourself.) You will be invited to tell a story about your life back in 1776 IF a) Mad King George had said OK, colonists you can have your freedom, or b) IF the ship carrying our Declaration of Independence had never made it to England, or c) IF you were on the ship that DID make it to London, then what was it like? What did you eat? What did you see? We will also have plenty of additional scenarios from which you might choose.


On Saturday, we will have a Scavenger Hunt AND a Poetry Slam. For the Poetry Slam, you will receive instructions for observing and writing about something you saw on your travels that day or something you observed in nature. The after dinner entertainment will be your awesome poems.


Saturday will be a potluck meal (for those who care to participate in such please cover your dish and provide a clean serving utensil -  intra-late-pandemic serving logistics/techniques TBD). Others are welcome to bring their own meals.


Rumors were heard that there might also be a blindfold dinghy race on Saturday. So, bring an eye mask (double duty face mask?). Oh, and bring your dinghy, too!


Sunday morning will be Continental Breakfast on the dock (bring your own coffee).


Please email Ray with your boat length and your tie up preference (linear side, BIPT, etc.); he will assignment slips. We have 12 spaces reserved at Bremerton for TTPYC.

Note also that Debra's email has changed. " I have been trying for the last year plus to change my email from comcast to gmail. I am unable to even access comcast with my current browser any more. 

Would you be so kind as to send a message to club members stating that my email is and that I can no longer even access my previous email of With the Bremerton Cruise coming up, I don't want folks to get frustrated if they can't reach me by email (even though I put my correct email in the flyer. )

Thank you!!!!
