Women and Adventure Luncheon at the GLCC Rendezvous! On Tuesday July 19, at 11:30
GLCC members are no doubt the adventurous type. Why do we get ourselves out on the water when we could just look at it from the shore? What’s in it for us, when it’s our own idea? What’s in it for us when we follow our partner? We do it for the Adventure! Please click here for more information.

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.

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). Click here (GLCC members only) and find a dynamic bio on the duo — direct from Bill himself. Many congratulations Bill and Judy!
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!
