Monday was a busy day at the 2008 Rendezvous, with a seminar on nautical history, a port-captain's meeting, the annual dog show, and lots and lots of wind (for the third day in a row).
Evening dinner was "on your own," but a large group assembled at Spider Bay for a bring-your-own barbecue and a salute to Rear-Commodore Bud Zalon, for his 80th birthday.
The evening ended with a sing-along, featuring GLCC artists.
The Dequesne Club facilities located in Norgate Inlet south of Britt, ON,. (see harbor report GB-40) burned to the ground last night. The fire started about 1:30 am, cause as yet unknown. Investigators will be on the scene today. The buildings have been a local landmark for over 100 years. Eight people were in the club, and all escaped.
