The Samuel Adams beer tasting party was a huge success! Sammie Adams & the beer wenches at the tasting stations made it fun & informative. Learned how to pair beer with food. Thanks again to Cathy & Richard Gilbert for hosting this party at their house.
What an amazing day of sun and fun for the 40th anniversary of our club's beginning. A special thanks to Linda & Kelly Steel for all their work in making this happen. Thanks to the Weavers & Tatalovichs for helping set up and to Norma Tatalovich for her uber creative tablescapes that made a drab pavilion so festive. Thank you to the chefs Linda & Kelly Steel, Asta Poirier, Kathy Hansen, Jacqueline Caramma & Denise Jagoda. Thank you to Capt. Tom Mestrits for the tours to Bird Island, all that went so enjoyed it. Thank you to all that pitched in when needed. And a big thanks to all the elves that whisked away our 'footprint' at the end. What a great day, it would not have happened without all of you.

A little something different this month. This Saturday, march 21, it's a scavenger hunt! Stimulates your mind, the excitement of the 'find', with friends and good food at the end. We can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than participating in a road rally scavenger hunt. Following a course around Martin County we will decode clues for answers, take pictures, and collect a few requested items. At the end we will meet back at the Twisted Tuna for lunch.
Cruse to the 2015 House of Refuge Raft Up
March 28, 2015, 1200 hours
We will meet for a luncheon raft up rendezvous on the bay side across from the House of Refuge. Just north of the public dock there is a good sheltered anchorage where we can have a raft up. For those who want to go there by car there is public parking and a small beach and dock where we can pick people up with a small boat to ferry them to the party. You can call for a pick up from land at (305) 632-9663 or (305) 238-0508.
If you are cruising I find it more interesting if you research your destination, its history and its unique creatures. The other side of the road from our raft up is the very scenic “Saint Lucie Rocks” and the House of Refuge.
If you think you will be joining the raft up contact Thomas Mestrits 305-238-0508 or firstname.lastname@example.org
