    I think we have an odd situation in our club where a good portion of our active members don't currently have functional watercraft...

    I have also noticed what seems to be a rift that has formed since Chuck's memorial service... Several folks who used to be very active on here are now, suddenly, missing in action?? I don't know if it's coincidence, or maybe a few of us messing up our efforts to attend the memorial has some how offended people, or maybe it's just interests changing and life getting in the way... I don't know...

    I will make every effort possible to attend a northend meet-and-greet whether it's inland or boating!!

    I have just been lazy about responding. I would suggest a meeting of north sounders between Smokey Point and Marysville. That is pretty centrally located. Most of us seem to have weekends off. m Bruce B is the only one who may be flying on the weekends. If someone could pick a place to meet that would help. Will try to get Bruce's schedule to see when he is available. Possible attendees: Clint Brice Brian Lyle Melanie, and Greg. I am sure there are others. I just don't know who they are. Clint

    Another Toss up...

    ScuttleButte Family Restaurant Saturday / Sunday 11:00 am? Those that would like to travel by boat can use the guest Moorage at the Everett Marina and those that are land locked can park in the lot close by.

    I am new at arranging these things but I would like to meet the active members if I can.

    Hey Brian.

    Chuck, Marty, Lowell, and Greg were our main coordinators in the club back in the early stages of the club.
    What has happened in my view has been weather related no shows.
    I remember a big event that Doug Griffith had put on, rain was a major factor on that event too.

    Tim McCrain used to put on a event at a chowder house and would pretty much Promote that and other events.

    In looking back (again, just from my eyes) I have seen events that Marty and Chuck would put on and would show pictures from the last events such as the Chuck Carey's Around Bainbridge Island. Marty started that event and Chuck took that one over. There were more than once that event was to early and got rained out..
    Lowel would put on the San Juan events and due to Iffy weather, seems that Lowel, Greg and John Nelson would show up. The last San Juans event that Lowel put on, only John Nelson showed.
    You can only coordinate a event so many times with no shows and well, you just get tired of trying to put them together.

    So, I think that promoting a event might be more of the proper term than coordinating.

    We keep signing up more and more new members in the Seattle Puget Sound area and well, with me being down here in Eugene, I am not much help.

    Now most of you might understand why I am wanting us to join with the ACBS folks. Most of those events are planned and go on due to what seems is, major time and money spent setting them up. Parks are reserved, promotional flyers have been created which might make them more of a commitment.

    We need to, Just Do It.
    Remember when we made sure that No one was standing on the shore, Everyone got a ride so Show up no matter what.

    Was it Lowel that would put on the event up around Marysville, up that channel ? Sorry for get what it was called but that was always a good event for sight seeing.

    So people, its Time...As Ingvar would say, Lets get out and turn some Props.

    That's a tough one for me. The 404 isn't quite ready for the season after some unexpected hull repairs had to be done and subsequent interior work. Getting there on the ferry is a pain from Poulsbo too.

    Hi Lyle-
    So yes, familiar with Scuttlebutt- great food and location, works with a cruise up the Snohomish, am looking for a particular boat that John Nelson found and would like to take more pics. Possibly a cruise and lunch later, anybody without a boat can hitch a ride. Shoot me a phone # in PM as you suggested ! maybe if we schedule it out a month, more could make it. thanks, bruceb
