Mr. Quarstein will talk about the grand hotels on the Bay like the Chamberlin, many of them in areas we enjoy cruising to.
At 6:30 p.m., historian John Quarstein, of public TV fame will again be our guest speaker talking about his newly released book entitled "Old Point Comfort Resort".
If you missed the inimitable historian John Quarstein on the roof of the Chamberlin, you missed a unique evening. Watching him point enthusiastically to some of our favorite parts of Hampton Roads as he vividly described the Battle of the Ironclads can't be forgotten. He did so well that OPCYC presented him with an Honorary Membership certificate. Mr. Quarstein has offered to talk to us again about the history of Ft. Monroe.
When they returned they informed the rest of our group, Robert and Pat Williamson on Sunlion, Jack and Tana Moran on Patriot, and me and Eileen with our two cats, Cap'n and Uncle Ted, on Cats' Paws , that Sarah had broken a tooth.
Unfortunately, we lost one of our boats as Jack and Tana had to get back home.
To the ladies and folks that helped Bob and Pat Williamson with the cooking, chopping, nd serving, to Dick Cassat for providing those tasty clams, to John and Beth Pence for getting all the beer, soda and supplies plus doing the set-up along with Bob and Pat, to my Logistics Captain Tom and June O'Brien for buying the wine and handling registration, to Jean Brzozowski for helping with the yellow ribbons and coming up with the yellow ribbon theme, and of course to our intrepid Commodore, Jack Moran for handling the 50-50 raffle for the USO.
