A casual mini-vous is being planned at Port Browning Marina for Friday/Sat Sept.6-7. No set talks or courses, just a chance to get together, laugh, mingle and swap stories.
You must make your own marina reservations, and even though you may have missed the original Aug 1 deadline, the marina will do it’s best to put the group together, just let them know you are with the PaNNTOA group. The marina was only holding 15 slips, though they will hold more if reservations warrant. Marina reservations can be made via email to: Marina@portbrowning.ca or call 250-629-3493.
Plans for the weekend include:
* A potluck dinner Friday at 6pm under the rented tent that has picnic tables.
* A waffle Breakfast Sat. AM is hosted by Blake & Rhonda Erickson in the tent.
* Dinner Saturday is by reservation as a group, or on your own. If you wish to have dinner with the group, please RSVP to the Erickson’s who will work with the restaurant.
There will be a $10 CDN charge per boat to offset the cost of tent rental.
Port Browning Marina is now part of the Mill Bay Group, and the restaurant & pub have been renovated and look fantastic! A short walk away there is a small shopping area called Driftwood Centre, with grocery & liquor stores, bakery/cafe (for breakfast & lunch), and even a dog washing station! There are scooters for rent near the Centre, or there is a bus that goes around the island if you are into exploring beyond taking your dinghy between the two islands.
Please let the Ericksons and Easterbrooks know if you will be attending ASAP!
