Well the airways are lighting up and the calls are coming in, we're going to have a great time "up there" in this special part of Michigan. I've never been there before, but we have Commander Forum members who live in the area and that will help us get the inside scoop on any special shopping places, marinas, boat shops nearby we have to see, etc.
The deadline for registration is today..............BUT...........right from the prime organizer, if anyone from this Forum wants to attend with or without a boat, email me, and I will make arrangements for you to be there. We have a nice Commander contribution to this show, and a few "almost Commanders" too, including a fabulous 41' Roamer. The Champagne will be flowing, there will be tunes aboard, we're going to be having some fun and I extend the invitation once again to all. If you have a snowball's chance of being there, give me an email, I'll call you and we can figure out how to make it happen!
Lolly is sending me a packet later today about the actual sign in, updated activities, whatever, and I'll post it when it arrives. I can say there is a reception Thursday evening at David Johnson's home, followed by a cruise. Those of you who are able to be there Thursday eve, please be sure to let me know so I can get you in, etc.
The week-end includes a car parade and dockside interviews.
The evening festivities at the private yacht club require a seperate RSVP, and I can assist with that as well.
Sunday there is another private invitation at a very special waterfront estate, there is no fee but they ask that everyone make a donation to the Bay Harbor Charity Fund. There are some doors being opened at this event that are seldom open to the general public, and we are honored to be invited into these homes, clubs, and grounds. I am looking forward to seeing you all, if anyone needs info be sure to email me at [url=mailto:ChrisCraftCommander@hotmail.com]ChrisCraftCommander@hotmail.com[/url] for all the details.
Here are some of the photos and info packs we've posted.
I'll post more info later today.
