Marinette Club & Rendezvous Update

Dear Members and Friends,

The COVID pandemic shows signs of subsiding, but the Bridge feels that the prudent course is to Cancel this year’s Marinette Rendezvous to avoid any risk of potential exposure to our members and guests. If it is safe, we may consider planning a social event/picnic for this fall. Any ideas, please let Rendezvous Chair Leslie Tighe (latlkwd@gmail.com) know.

Also, the Bridge has decided, since the club has been inactive due to COVID, we are freezing everyone’s membership for one year. If you paid a one year membership sometime last year, then your membership would be extended one year. No dues notices will be mailed out this year. If you have any address or email changes, please let our Membership Chair, Nancy Plosker (njplosker@netscape.net) know so that we can keep you informed in the future.  

Thank you and hope to see you all soon.

Best Regards,
Craig Purnell
President
Great Lakes Marinette Club

Interesting site documenting a Marinette Restoration

Here’s an interesting site I stumbled across recently that documents a 1978 Marinette Restoration:

https://1978marinette32.wordpress.com/

Looks like he put a lot of time into the boat. I’ll look more at his techniques later and maybe update this.

Anyway, the boat is for sale if anyone is interested. Looks like it still needs some work though.

Marinette Rendezvous Cancelled

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Marinette Rendezvous. The bridge feels it is the socially responsible thing to do during these difficult times to keep everyone safe.

Anyone who already registered will have their check returned to them.
Clothing and Burgees are still available if anyone is interested. Please contact Nancy Plosker for Burgees or Julie Purnell for clothing/hats.
