The announcement you've all been awaiting breathlessly....
(Drum roll, please.)
The 2012 Northeast O'day Owners rOnDAYvous -- our 10th annual gathering -- will be held the weekend of July 13-15 at Cedar Island Marina in Clinton, CT. Marina owners are looking forward to helping us make this the biggest and best ever, but it all starts with YOU.
So mark your calendars -- in pen -- and start thinking nice warm thoughts. Cedar Island is a family-oriented facility with great amenities, including a big transient dock that will allow all attendees to hang out in a centralized spot. Then there's the pool, BBQ area, lounge, shuttle to town and shopping outlets, and much more.
As if you needed more incentive, we've also worked out a terrific dockage rate for the rOnDAYvous (based on at least 15 boats). Don't miss out. Contact the marina directly to reserve your spot, and do it soon. After March 1, they'll open up their transient space to all comers, so you'll be taking your chances after that date. Here's a link to the marina website, which includes e-mail and phone contact info:
But wait, there's more....
(There's more? Tell me, please!!!)
Since it's the 10th annual rOnDAYvous, we want to go really big. So, after the weekend at Cedar Island, the party will continue for those with the time and desire to do so. A flotilla of O'days will shove off for the Vineyard (or Block, or the Elizabeth Islands -- exact destination to be determined), where the party will carry on for as long as attendees can manage. Think of it -- a big O'day raftup that will let you party at leisure. In the words of Gershwin, "Who could ask for anything more?"
Lots to look forward to as we slog through the depths of winter. Boy, I feel warmer already.  So get busy. Sign up, and bring a fellow O'day owner while you're at it. (And besides contacting the marina, don't forget to let me know if you're attending.)
See you in July.

Took the dy yesterday and drove over to Cedar Island. This place is really nice, well protected, water may be a little shallow, nice docks, pool and for anyone who wants or needs to go shopping, about a mile or two away is a giant mall. We have our reservation in, looking forward to July

Marina owners say they're recently (and regularly) dredged, with 7-8 feet dockside at MLW. I've never had a problem there, and I can't imagine any other O'day will. Looking forward to seeing you and Judy again.
