The annual end-of-the-year awards party and dinner will be held at the Pope Marine Building at 6pm on Thursday 11/15 at 6pm. As in the past it will be a potluck dinner – please bring a main and a side dish to share. Beer and wine will be available and there will be a slideshow. This is always a fun event that provides an opportunity for each crew to relive their victories and decry their losses, to retell the stores of crashes and near misses, and to get excited for the new season starting in the spring of 2019.
The Pope Marine Building is located on the dock at the corner of Water and Madison Streets in Port Townsend (near the Cotton Building where the party was last year).
