The Anacortes Chapter of the Ranger Tug Fan Club meets at the home of the Mayor of Reid Harbor Dock, Bob, and Nita Ostlund today for a pre-Rendezvous Rally.
Boats represented are Adventurer, Auklet, Carpe Diem, Nellie Too, and Willie's Tug. Absent are Chiquita and Circle T.
The Rabbit Chef welcomes the TugNutters.
Tasty snacks contribute to the aesthetics of the table and the thought processes of those attending.
Workshops begin as committee members discuss hot topics.
Ida of Adventurer and Jim of Carpe Diem are shown below, as she explains something very important.
Herb of Willie's Tug and Buzzy of Carpe Diem debate beer versus wine. Nita of Nellie Too voted for wine.
Bob of Nellie Too demonstrates his culinary skills on the grill with hamburgers, Seattle Mariners' hot dogs and Aidells chicken and apple sausage, while Cary of Auklet looks on.
Paying close attention to the cooking are Cary, Jim and Randy of Adventurer.
Much is accomplished during the evening -- with no agenda, we enjoy our visiting with each other and a wonderful dinner. Buzzy entertains us with a story of a backpacking trip.
And then there is dessert, Buzzy's strawberry tart!
Willie of Willie's Tug,
and of Walldog, Willie and Jake
