      OK folks. I’d like to start planning a 424 meet up this summer in the mid-Chesapeake. I’m thinking somewhere between Deltaville and St Michaels. Possible spots I’m thinking of are St Michaels, Oxford, Solomons (partial here as it’s my home waters), St Mary’s City, Reedville, Urbanna.
      I was thinking of picking a date around some special event at one of these locations. Solomons is great for me because I can make plans for all of us and know our local waters pretty well but anywhere works for us. I think late spring/early summer might be best for comfort.
      Any thoughts on this?

      We would be interested. Currently we have plans to be cruising the Bay during the month of June(ish) 2020… The spots you mentioned are usually on our itinerary. Solomons would be a great location.

      I like the idea of scheduling it so those who’ve wintered over in the tropics can attend when/as they return. I’ll try to work that in.
      BTW, Never done this before, so I’m very open to help/suggestions. While I love to sit back on the boat, I’ll try to arrange for some activities we can optionally do.

      Please include Sails Call in your plans WE are just north of the Bay Bridge, on the Magothy, so Solomon’s or points north would be great

      I’ve been holding my breath that we’ll still be able to meet but with every passing day this seems like we may have to cancel. I’m an optimist, so I will not cancel until later but do expect we will have to. More to follow on this!
      If we find out that we can’t do it in June, maybe a reschedule for the fall or even push to next year.

      All,
      The current situation, while easing, just isn’t conducive to have the gathering. Restaurants are not opening, museums are closed. The fly-in has been postponed and the whole ordeal is disheartening.
      i propose we move the meet-up to later this year. Possibly Late September to early October.
      Any an all suggestions are welcome.
      Rich
