October 28 to October 30, 2006

The weekend before Halloween, friends descended upon 739 Dividing Road in Severna Park, MD to send us off with well wishes. The house was the perfect spot, with a great screened in deck, fireplace, huge dining room table, hot tub & most important: ping-pong & foosball. Although there was a gale warning on the bay for the weekend, Hans took a crew out on Whisper on Saturday early afternoon and Fred, who has a much larger boat, took a handful of foolhardy sailors out later on when the winds were blowing 40+ knots. We had a tasty dinner, lots of good wine & beer, guitar playing & singing, ping-pong tournaments, and general good cheer.
On Sunday morning as we were all recovering, we gathered on the dock for a champagne toast. Friends started going their respective ways and a couple more friends joined us on Sunday evening for another big meal and ICW talk. We started packing up to leave on Monday morning, and we pushed off from the dock around 2PM.
