Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Once again George and Wende of the tug Parthia have invited the RTA to  Dockton State Park in Quartermaster Harbor, Vashon for a fall rendezvous.  This will be our third year at Dockton, special thanks George and Wende for continuing this great get together.  RSVP to George ( so he has an idea of how many people and boats will attend.  This is one of our favorite gatherings, lots of fun and great food.  There will be a potluck on Saturday night, bring a side dish or dessert.
