  • Next Event: Alder Lake Treasure Hunt

    Avast, me hearties!

    The next event on our calender is the 3rd Annual Alder Lake Treasure Hunt. This years event promises to be filled with even more treasure hunting, pillaging, and swashbuckling' fun! The event is scheduled for the 22 of May. New this year, you must be a paying member of NWCBC to attend. The last two years have been a lot of fun and we hope everyone is as excited as we are for the upcoming festivities. We will be providing lunch, including beverages and dessert.
    A quick note on Alder Lake for those who haven't been there previously. Alder Lake can be found off of HWY 7 south of Tacoma, near the town of Elbe on your way to Mt. Rainier. They have a spectacular campground with everything from tent areas to full hookups. The boat launch has nice restroom facilities and a dock for easy loading or unloading. There is moorage available for day use and also for those staying at the park. The day use area is one of the finest we have found as a group. If you want more info. or to make a reservation here is the link:

    So mark your calendars, find yer crew, and prepare to sail under a pirate flag at Alder Lake. Let us know as early as you can if you will be attending and how many in your party including children. More details coming soon.......keep a weather eye out.

    Heres a few pics of the past years event:

            Michele and I will be there for sure!! This was the first event we ever attended with the Chris Craft and we hope to have an even better time this year as we have learned a lot more about what the boat likes and doesn't like. We will likely have a hearty crew but not sure yet, will let you know as we get closer...

            Now for a little pirate humor...

            A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel in his pants. Bartender asks, "what's with the steering wheel in your pants?". Pirate says, "Arr she's drivin me nuts".... irate:irate:

                            The stars and moon must align that day, as the calendar was completely vacant for the 22nd!! I plan on being there with at least one little swashbuckler! If all works out, I will bring the Playmaster that has not seen the water since the 2009 Slough Run! Joe and Amanda, let us know if there is anything you need a hand with this year!
