    Actually, that question has never been asked! I hereby make the rule that a boat can enter as many libations as it wants to, but the drinks can't be made by the same person. If you have an entry, other entries from your boat will have to be prepared by a different crew member.

    Alright, ye swabs. You might as well give up on any hopes of winning this year's Master Mixologist Award, because I have come up with a concoction that will make your Jolly Roger sit up and salute. I call it "Pirate's Blood," and, arrgh, it be tasty!

    But -- if ye want to challenge, I need to know who you are and the name of your beverage so I can make the contest scorecards. I've published the rules, but if you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know.

    And hey -- if you're waffling about joining us in Anacortes, get off your (ottoman) and sign up! It's a guaranteed good time, and you'll be exposed to all sorts of beneficial information and GlasPly lore. And take off, hosers -- to date we do not have any Canadians on the attendance list. Come on down, yo! The exchange rate is somewhat improved for you, and hey -- the first round's on me anyway. Seriously, we'd love to have Canucks in attendance, with or without boat. You will be touched to know that I actually know the words to "O Canada," and, prompted by a few Molsons, might just belt it out.

    Tempus fugit, folks, so let's get not dawdle! More about the Rendezvous coming soon.

    Have we become so formal that we need rules? Next thing you know we will demand campaign time, equal TV time, primary elections, more campaign time, then the final elections (if the Russians don't hack into the system).
    Have a happy and safe 4th of July.

    Nay. Rules is rules, ye swab. Without them we'd descend into anarchy.

    So again, here're the rules for the Mixology Competition:

    1) Your beverage should be mixed and ready to pour at the outset of the competition at 1730; it's best to have it in a pitcher or suitable container so you can pour quickly.

    2) You'll need to make enough to serve about 20 people; not a full drink, though, just a taste will do. Dixie cups will be provided.

    3) Your beverage should have a name, either a well-known cocktail appellation or one you've made up. The only restriction on your recipe is that you must have mixed your drink: it can't come right out of a bottle or can. You should be prepared to let people know your ingredients if asked (in case someone's allergic to chocolate or pineapple or whatever).

    4) Those who volunteer to be tasters will get a scorecard on which they'll give each drink a rating. At the end we'll total up the results, and the winner will get this year's Master Mixologist award!

    5) If you intend to compete please let me know the name of your drink so I can put you on the scorecard.

    Bear down, and sign up!

    Well, mates, the sign-up sheet for the upcoming Rendezvous in Anacortes has not changed in weeks. To date we have 10 boats or attendees without boats registered. Are we going to have an intimate little gathering? That would be fun, but I'm hoping for a larger crew. I need to let Cap Sante know how many boats we'll have and their lengths by August 7, so if you're dithering about registering, cut it out: just do it!

    On Saturday afternoon about 1600 we're going to hear a little talk by Jake Corbin, proprietor of Corbin Custom Upholstery, who'll give us tips for vinyl care and explain what commercial products are good and not good for our vinyl. Jake did Bubba G's interior, and comes highly recommended. After a Q/A with Jake, we'll have a chat about environmental concerns, and talk about proper fueling techniques, environmentally sound products, etc.

    About 1700 we'll break so the Mixology contestants can prepare, and then we'll reconvene at 1730 for the Mixology Competition. If you're planning to enter, please let me know so I can get you on the scorecard.

    Following the competition, as I cradle the Mixology Prize and pose for photos, Grillmeister Aaron will fire up the barbie and we'll swing into dinner. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

    Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about the GlasPly Rendezvous -- the cost, the sign-up procedure, the schedule, etc. -- or if you have questions about Anacortes, Cap Sante Marina, Binford's peccadilloes, or anything else. I am taking the boat up to the Sacramento Delta for the first week in August and may not be able to respond during that time, but I will be back by August 5 in time to meet Cap Sante's deadline for our registration.

    I hope to see you at the Rendezvous!

    Yeah, hey.... I have a question: What the heck is a peccadillo? Something like this maybe?

    If you're planning to attend the Rendezvous, this is the time to let Mr. Smee know as he really does have to let the marina staff know how many slips we need so they can release the rest at this rather busy time of year for them!

    Hope to see you there!
