Running a search on the last name "Rohde" via the Great Lakes Cruising Club homepage happens to bring up a lengthy list of hits for this prolific couple. These long time members surely have kicked up some dust! Now they’ve affected yet another organization with their presence in acquiring another dignified title. Check out this link to the May 2016 Seven Seas Cruising Association monthly Commodores’ Bulletin announcing GLCC Director Bill and Judy Rohde as newly-appointed SSCA Great Lakes Cruising Station Hosts (a similar function as GLCC Port Captains).

UPDATE: KILLARNEY MOUNTAIN LODGE UNDETERRED BY FIRE! Killarney Mountain Lodge, the planned site of the 2018 Rendezvous, is featured in Great Lakes Boating. Holden & Carey Rhodes, owners since 2015, are GLCC members as were previous owners, Maury & Annabelle East. Phase two of a three phase plan to extensively renovate the lodge has been completed. Included is a new, full service marina. Next time you are in Killarney, be sure to check out the new boating and lodge facilities. Hungry but don't want to get dressed for dinner, they will even deliver meals to your boat!
