Speaker Series: Cruising the Inside Passage
Tonight at 6:00 pm – Clubhouse and Zoom

Members Jeff Birdwell and Holly Winnen will take us on their adventure cruising “Teak and Holly” up and back through the Inside Passage to Glacier Bay, Sitka, and Juneau. The beauty, vastness, and wildness of this area are almost indescribable. Every day offered something new to see and do. From navigating currents in the narrows, maneuvering through walls of crab pots, 25-foot tidal changes in 6 hours, and an array of wildlife (whales, seals, eagles, otters, and BEARS oh my). Not to mention icebergs, growlers, and baby bits. And yes we caught many fish, crabs, and prawns along the way. As boat owners of less than a year when we started the cruise we learned so much! We would love to share some of the highlights from our fantastic journey with you.

This event will be catered. Meal tickets will be $25 pp.

I will be coming in-person
I will be joining via Zoom

Groundhog Day – Movie Night
Tuesday, February 2nd, 6:00 pm – Clubhouse

Bill Murray portrays Phil Connors, a cynical television weatherman covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, who becomes trapped in a time loop, forcing him to relive February 2nd repeatedly. 

Hilarious, heart warming, ultimately happy! As usual there will be brief introduction to the movie.

Potluck: Bring something to share.

I’ll be there – sign me up
