Holiday Time – Dinner Get-Togethers.

With cruising events behind us for 2023, make plans to get together at our November 21 and December 12 Holiday Dinner Meetings.

We are reserved for November 21 and December 12 (earlier in the month than usual in order to avoid conflicting with other holiday events in the week of the 18th).  We are again meeting at the Elliott Bay Brewing Company’s Cascade Room (lower level) in Lake City.  An Evite will still be sent for all monthly dinner meetings.  Even though this new format does not involve capturing everyone’s individual meal choice via Evite, we still need to know how many will be attending, so please reply to the Evite.  The buffet meal will include Cobb Salad, Fish & Chips, Carnitas Tacos, Chicken Tenders, and Cuban Sandwiches.  Cost is $27 for cash/check and $29 for credit card payment.

After our meal and short business meeting, we will be featuring MOVIE NIGHT.  Large bowls of delicious popcorn will help set the mood as we view a couple short movies (videos) of treacherous rounding of Cape Horn.  We’ll see amazing footage of the old clipper sailing ships negotiating this fabled passage, followed by more recent footage taken as part of the Volvo Round the World race.


If you haven’t had the opportunity yet to join us at this facility, those who have been at the two Fall meetings thus far have given it very positive reviews.  The room provides a more practical setting for conversation – there is, after all, our very own bar and bartender along one whole side of the room.

We hope to see you there!
