You set the theme by dressing up and
decorating your boat. The event will be
complete with judges and prizes for the
"best in show".
    Stay tuned for further details.

 Memorial Day party a hit despite the rain!

Right on cue, the rain arrived with dinner, but then again, it was Memorial Day weekend and
this is Kansas after all. Sailors that we are, we endured the maelstrom huddled together,
enjoying our comrades and our barbeque & beer, all the while watching the wind blow the
rain sideways, along with the occasional tent or small dog. And then it stopped and we got
on with the business at hand. The three piece Sean McKnown Band played an eclectic
collection of tunes and with Lisa Neyens inspiration, this party got started! Crowd pleasers
included the ever popular Margaritaville and Sweet Home Alabama but there were plenty of
songs that had plenty of people singing along, a cathartic start to the summer indeed! Toss
up for highlight of the evening: Lisa N cajoling Dylan Kessler and then Jon Huffmire out onto
the dance floor, priceless! Thanks to Bruce and Kathy Liese for hosting a wonderful & fun
