RTA Fall Rendezvous 2011

RTA Fall Rendezvous

Seven RTA tugs and one Sea Scout boat cruised into Dockton State Park Marina last weekend for the second annual RTA fall rendezvous, to talk tugs and show off their boats and all the work they’ve put into them. The weather was fine and the kids (and kids at heart) had fun playing with the thousands of moon jellies that swarmed the water around the docks as they walked around touring all the tugs and talking to the RTA members about thier boats. Several people thanked us for bringing the boats down for everyone to enjoy and the staff at Dockton was very friendly and accomodating.
Saturday evening George and Wendy of the Parthia hosted a Salmon bake/potluck at the parks pavillion area. There was a fire in the fire pit and s’mores among the desserts. Several RTA members arrived by car for the party.
Sunday morning started out gray and drizzly but folks still showed up on the dock to see the tugs. The sky cleared up and it turned into a beautiful day for the cruise back home. A picture perfect Pacific Northwest boating weekend.
Tugs in attendence were:
R.W. Confer
and the Sea Scout boat, R.E. Gillespie

A big thank you to George and Wendy of the tug Parthia for once again hosting a great rendezvous! We all look forward to doing again next year.
