October’s general annual membership meeting and dinner will be held at the Rusty Porthole Restaurant this year. Please add th to your already busy calendar. We will hold our meeting on the Porthole’s covered deck at and then we will have cocktails at and dinner as a group at . Drive in, or cruise in, either way we will have a great time! If you choose to cruise in, the Porthole will again be extending overnight docking free of charge for and nights with the purchase of dinner each night. We have room for a maximum of 14 boats.
Rumor has it there will be a “Caliente Karaoke Challenge” night after our group dinner. That ought to be a spectacle. During our Opening Day Celebration at the Porthole last April, Caliente had a number of members perform musical numbers at the microphone. Mark Sechler did a rousing rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “ New York, New York” complete with Fedora and, well, really dorky shorts. Very entertaining. Then Jo Daniels, Kimi Sechler and myself intrigued the crowd with our rather “unique” version of the Supremes’ “Stop, In the Name of Love”. Kimi tried to steal the show and caused a terrible cat fight during the performance. To my dismay, Jody Lyman caught the performance on her cell phone, sent it to my son, and now he isn’t sure he wants to be seen at the Porthole with me any longer. Not a problem. Thanks Jody.
So, mark your calendars and plan on a wildly good time at the meeting…. I mean the dinner, at the Rusty Porthole. The meeting will be cool too. Look for the reservation flyer in your email and on the club website in September!
