Greetings Fellow Tuggers!
Another successful rendezvous is now behind us and your Board is already beginning preparations for 2020 Rendezvous to be held in Sidney, BC. We hope that those of you that could attend this year found it enjoyable, entertaining and educational. We hope to continue that theme next year as well.
We have reviewed the surveys that you provided us (we had a 38% return rate and we appreciate those who took the time to fill out the survey) and are beginning to address those issues that will enable us to build on what our predecessors have been so successful.
A big thank you to all of those who participated in the auction, both live and silent. We raised a total of $4715 for the Skagit Valley College Marine Technology Center. I delivered a check to Mike Beemer, the department chair, on Monday. Our Communications Director, Mike Young, is working on sending articles about the Rendezvousand auction out to several magazines. There also was a short article in the Anacortes American.
Most of the board is or will be out cruising this summer. You can expect to see more communication from us as we near fall. Until then safe and healthy cruising and spread the word about the great boats that we all have!
