I'm a native of Baltimore, love the pleasures of the Bay, including boating, waterfowl hunting, anything to do with water (except not a big fishing fan). Currently living on a houseboat on Rock Creek in northern Anne Arundel County.
Owned a Rainbow (24' cuddy cabin sailboat) for a few years, then an Alberg 30 for about 24 years, now sailing on OPB's (other people's boats).
50 years of experience, beginning as crew on a racing sailboat out of Gibson Island. Participated in Bay races and offshore races (Annapolis-Newport and Newport-Bermuda). Cruised my Alberg on the Bay from the Sassafrass to the Rappahannock. Bareboated in the Caribbean from South Caicos to St. Thomas, and from Baltimore to LI Sound.
Good group with a ton of interesting activities
Hello Alex! Welcome to the group! Looking forward to meeting you on Friday!
Last night I arrived at the Desmond in Malvern for the meetup that you set up. Where were you? Was anyone from the group there? The front desk said that your group used to meet there but now you meet elsewhere. Disappointing at best.
Meetup is involved in this ralley where they were looking for people to do ralleys in there area. I took the info from the meetup site for this Ralley. The tea party had a ralley and they do not represent the majority of America. Jon Stewart the comedian is doing a ralley to counter Glen Becks rally. This ralley is to let people know or say lets not go with the people that siupported Bush that put us in this mess. The new president has been handed a mess that the prev. administration has left.
Alex, the rally is being put on by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert of the Comedy Channel. It is their response to the Glen Beck rally a few weeks ago, but it is comedic. Everything they do is tongue-in-cheek. There will be comedians and bands and a lot of people.
Thanks, Alex, I'll definitely try to make next month!
Unfortunately, I can't make your Meet Up on the 12th. I hope it's a great success and I look forward to meeting you on another occasion!
