2012 Informal Catalina Rendezvous Great Success

Even though TOSCA cancelled the formal 2012 Catalina Rendezvous, several TOSCA members made the trip to Catalina and had a wonderful time!  Bill Solberg and Patty Smiley on WindDancer and Don and Laura McLennan on Intuition were in Cat Harbor and Dave and Caroline Stege on Vinciamo were in Isthmus. The group met on Saturday for lunch and drinks and were invited to the California Yacht Club (CYC)'s BBQ at their facility on Belcher's Point.

This introduces the idea of having more loosely scheduled events in future rendezvous. Instead of an action packed weekend with the usual Friday Night BBQ, Dinghy Raft-Up, Banning House Wine and Cheese Party followed by dinner at Doug's Reef, perhaps the TOSCA Membership would welcome informal gatherings, hiking along the island or other events. Other thoughts are to schedule the rendezvous at different locations, to add variety to the event.  Stay tuned as we will be discussing this in more detail.
