CAL 20 CAMP OUT COMING SOON

FRIDAY, AUGUST 12 through SUNDAY, AUGUST 14

GOVERNMENT ISLAND, EAST DOCK

It’s that time again – the ANNUAL PREMIER SUMMER SOCIAL EVENT for Cal 20 owners, families and friends.     


It’s a weekend to relax and enjoy the summer .  Several Board Members are planning to attend, and we hope to see many of our Fleet members as well.  

Some folks will arrive on Friday and others on Saturday, to spend the day or the weekend.   Keep in mind the trip up river can take several hours.  

Friday night dinner is potluck, as are breakfasts.      Bring food for your personal use and something to contribute to the shared meals …  rolls, salads, side dishes, desserts, etc.   We’ll eat anything !!   Bring snacks and beverages for “happy hour” – which can sometimes go on for hours.  

Saturday dinner will be provided by the Fleet – steak, chicken, baked potatoes and fixins’.   There will also be a couple cases of our recently-brewed Cal 20 Ale.    

You’ll want to have a dock chair.  Small portable tables are useful.   Canopies for sun shade are most welcome.   There will likely be a game of beach golf – and water toys are always fun.   


In recent years we have held this event on the dock near our boats, in which case we need a portable BBQ for group use on the dock … including cooking pans, utensils, etc.

There is NO source of fresh water on the island.    Bring a cooler, water, and ice if possible.  Bring your own paper goods, dishes, utensils, trash bags, etc.   Big boats attending will have the ability to make coffee, boil water, etc.  
  
Join us for this GREAT annual summer event and make some memories with the Portland Cal 20 Fleet.    

We need a head count so provisions can be purchased.
