    Lightbulb 2014 Rendezvous

    I recall that one of the Ericson attendees at this year's rendezvous at Pt Townsend was thinking about putting on the June 2014 Ericson/Olson Rendezvous at Maple Bay, BC.
    If so, here's a solicitation for early promotion from Pacific Yachting. This just came to my mailbox today.
    For 2013, I am unsure if our little announcement made it into Pacific Yachting. I did get an announcement into 48 North.
    Regards,
    Loren

    Maple Bay

    We are looking forward to a rendezvous at Maple Bay. The people who were interested in organizing it were Helga and Joe on InSync. We were just wondering if anything had developed further with this. We had also discussed moving the date away from the July1 and July 4 holidays, can't remember if it would be earlier or later. Someone mentioned that it could be around the time when US boats headed north for the summer. It would be great to have time and place decided early. Last year at Port Townsend was great.

    How about June 27 - 29 ??

    That's close to the seemingly-well-received dates we used in 2013.

    Remember that no matter what dates we choose, there will be some owners that cannot attend and some others that will be delighted...
    And, the other 70% will just be really glad to have some dates to pencil in on their calendar as they plan for next summer !


    So, think it over, and let's have some more input.

    Thanks,

    My wife and I really enjoyed the 2013 Rendezvous at Port Townsend. We would definitely make plans to attend again this year, especially if it is held in Maple Bay--that is one of our favourite marinas!

    We look forward to plans being finalized.

    2014 Rendezvous at Maple Bay

    Hi all.

    Helga and Joe on InSync & Wanda and C.A. on Nimue have jointly volunteered to organize the 2014 rendezvous with Maple Bay as the venue.
    Nimue just recently returned from our circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and likely hasn't checked the Ericson website for awhile. I'll give them a heads up regarding the interest and inquiries. I unfortunately won't be able to make it as TS and I are heading north again next spring, but my son has been commissioned to do a design for rendezvous t-shirts. We'll keep you posted!

    2014 Ericson Rendezvous

    Hello Everyone.

    The 2014 Ericson Rendezvous will be in Maple Bay, British Columbia.

    Helga and Joe (InSync) and Wanda and C.A. (Nimue) are making arrangements. Helga has contacted Carol at the Maple Bay Marina. Carol has given us two potential weekends, June 28-29 or July 5-6. The marina will honour the 2013 rates (assuming they increase their visitor moorage rates for 2014). $1.40 per foot, 30 amp power at $6.00 per night and 15 amp at $4.00 per night.

    Carol would like to know no later than the beginning of January which weekend we want to book. In any event, she will give us a right of first refusal on the two dates listed above.

    We are asking anyone thinking of attending to voice your vote for the weekend that works best and we will tally up the votes and let the Marina know by January.

    Please pass on this message to anyone that you may think would be interested in attending.

    Sean, I'm wondering if it's possible to send an email or some other notice to the members of the Northwest and British Columbia group in case they don't check this forum before January.

    OK, Vikings, it's a start. Looking forward to making this 2014 Rendezvous a blast.

    Thanks,
    C.A. Fields

    Maple Bay is a great location, but logistically won't work for me unless it ends up coinciding with our trip to Desolation Sound. I suspect that will be the case for others as well who like to do it over a 3-4 day weekend.

    Good luck and have fun.

    A comment deserving of a reply, and it comes on the heels of a similar message back channel.
    Indeed, There has been no debate on where in BC to head for in 2014.

    What has happened, strictly from my point of view, was that being rather tired from my months of noodling around with the 2013 Rendezvous planning and marina logistics, I was frickin' delighted when some owners told us they would be willing to organize the 2014 gathering @ Maple Bay.

    Further to go for some, certainly, but then I recalled that there was a recent well-attended rendezvous way up in BC waters at Poet's Cove. Too far for us Oregonians to drive, but then unless the group wants to reciprocate and journey to the Columbia River.... these gatherings will always be a long journey for owners living in the PDX area.

    And then, to add some impetus to our pick-a-location process, we already have on hand a request to publicize the Rendezvous in an upcoming page in Pacific Yachting.

    You may all take a short break from the pre-planning for Maple Bay if you choose, but I suspect that a poll will result in interest in more than one location, and much more importantly, may not then produce a strong volunteer for putting on the event.
    Please take my word that having, early on, "boots on the ground" is a key thing.

    So, if you want to poll on location choices, have at it. But, do not delay!

    I would not want our early volunteers to waver in their enthusiasm.

    As always, E-owners from my geographic area will have to either drive or plan their summer cruising vacation around the destination chosen, and budget their time to suit.

    Regards,
    Loren

    Maple Bay Marina in the Gulf Islands is a lovely,quaint place with a great restaurant. And the Gulf Islands can't be beat for beauty, great anchorages and other Marinas in nearby locations. For sure we should have the 2014 Rendezvous there!

    Venue for 2014 Pacific Northwest Rendezvous

    Hi Everyone.

    Forgive us for assuming, but, when we were at dinner during the Port Townsend rendezvous 2013, it was proposed that the rendezvous for 2014 be held at Maple Bay to much applause and enthusiasm. Helga, Joe, Wanda and I offered to ascertain the availability of MB as a valid option and to organize the event there.

    Maple Bay is available on the dates we've indicated and as there were no other location suggestions, we assumed that this would work for the majority interested in attending a Canadian rendezvous.

    I understand that any location and/or time will not work for everyone. These dates are the only ones that work for InSync and Nimue as we have plans to be north after the rendezvous and in fact we prefer the June 27-29 timeframe. If the group consensus is for a different venue then we certainly won't stand in the way, but the group will then need new organizers as well.

    I hope that I've cleared up why other venues were not thrown in with the date vote.

    Thanks,
    C.A.

    Good Point!
    I had forgotten about the agreement reached at the pot luck gathering.
    And, the main discussion point remains that just like every year, some owners will be able to attend and some will have conflicts and will not.

    "You've all done very very well!" ...as Young Mr Grace used to say.

    Rendezvous at Maple Bay

    Hi All. I remember when the discussion of the 2014 Rendezvous came up at the Port Hudson Rendezvous and there was a very postive response to Maple Bay. I also thought how great it was that people were already willing to step up to organize it. While it is true that some US sailors will find Maple Bay a long trip, it is probably no worse than when sailors from the North have to travel long distances to attend the rendezvous in the US. Although Donna-Marie and I already have a commitment during the suggested 2014 dates, I would vote to have it at Maple Bay. It is a great location and I appreciate the efforts of C.A., Helga, Joe and Wanda. (We hope to make it to Maple Bay later in the year.) Thanks. Dave and Donna-Marie (SV Amazing Grace)
