2019 Rendezvous Agenda Update

2019 Rendezvous Agenda Update

The 2019 Rendezvous Agenda is established, and we are going to spend quality time on fire prevention, maintenance procedures & items to stock on your boat. We’ll even handle how to go back and forth with Customs between Canada and the U.S efficiently on your tug. Three evening meals, two breakfasts and one lunch are being provided along with an opportunity to have a Coast Guard Auxiliary safety check, marine technician appointment specific to your interests/concern and first mate training to improve our skills. All available as part of your registration fee.

We’ll have our usual auction, this year to support needy students wishing to go to the Skagit Valley College, Marine Technician Program. Auction items will include free 2-night moorage gift certificates for marinas from the South Sound (Tacoma/Gig Harbor) to the north in BC (Blind Channel, Dent Island and Heriot Bay) plus other surprise items.

Our vendors will offer multiple discounts and offers, some new products such as the Rainman, water-maker, 31 GPH portable or installed and other deals worth considering. If you visit all our vendors, you will be entered into a special drawing, held at the end of the evening.

Whoever answers the most trivia questions correctly over the course of the rendezvous will also win a surprise. Hint: Better bone up on authors writing about adventure on the high seas and other Nordic Tug Facts.

PANNTOA Rendezvous 2019

PaNNTOA Rendezvous 2019

The Seattle and Vancouver boat shows are past, so the time has come again to think about boating and summer and Panntoa!

The rendezvous is scheduled for Anacortes again, the weekend of the Waterfront Festival-with arrival(s) Thursday, May 30th through departure(s)Sunday, June 2nd. We are starting to put together an exciting lineup already, including Customs Officers from BOTH Canada and the US to answer all your questions about multiple topics such as the Canadian-US Nexus card program, the new US online small vessel reporting system (SVRS) app and more! Keep tuned in as we will be sharing more over the next few weeks.

On a more serious note however, if you ‘ve ever been to a rendezvous before and enjoyed it, if you are looking forward to coming this May because of the good things you’ve heard, we need to talk! Your Commodore, Treasurer, Rendezvous chair, Membership chair and others are all taking a break after this rendezvous and are planning to start enjoying the rendezvous and other business functions from a distance, effective June 1st, end of day.

So what does this mean for every PANNTOA member going forward? It means it’s time to step up! It means it’s time to volunteer while you have the current team in place to share that “tribal knowledge” that could be helpful in the future. It means it’s time for a new administration. So PLEASE, Please, please …. Consider volunteering for the future of PANNTOA.
PLEASE, Please, please send either Greg Kleven (kleven.greg@gmail.com) or myself, Sam Stone (suanns@me.com) a note if you are even thinking about it. Either one of us is happy to answer questions and this couldn’t be a better time to shadow us so it doesn’t seem so overwhelming.
