Five owners got together Saturday January 18, 2020 at the Boatyard Grill in Eastport to re-launch the club. Sorry to not get all the avatar identifications but from L to R:

Pat with an E38 Synchronicity in the Annapolis area.
Don "Navman" with an E38 Optimist II on the Eastern shore.
Bob "Tin Kicker" with an E32-3 in the Annapolis area.
Jay "JPS27" with an E27 in the Norfolk area. (Corrected)
Mark "Souleman" with an E30+ in Herrington North.

All of us are looking forward to having another get-together soon and rafting when possible.

minor correction, e27 owner at the chesapeake meet up is Jay, not Pat (although my parents apparently thought about naming me Patrick, so you could be on to something). It was a great time. I learned a lot from you all. Looking forward to the next meeting. Jay

Please add me and my wife Jean to the group - we have an E-25 on a trailer in Cumberland MD. Divide our time between Georgia and MD, planning to relocate to Cumberland permanently late in 2020. Have not had the boat in the water yet but looking forward to sailing it. Bought it to sail the coast of Maine with the grandkids in summer, but may also sail out of Annapolis from time to time. Would love to get together with fellow E-owners for social events. Any of you folks also glider pilots, by chance?

Looks like a great group and sorry I missed it. Snow with freezing rain on top here in Hershey PA made the thought of driving down to below the freeze line in MD unappealing. So I hope that this is the first of many gatherings.

For the next Chesapeake club meet up, I believe Pat is the guy to select the location. I live in Hampton and am not familiar with Annapolis and Eastport other than as an infrequent visitor. I likely won't make too many of these meeting simply because of the distance. But I'll do my best!

By Popular vote, Pat is volunteered to select the February meeting location.

I will be sending out a group email later today to all members on this topic.

Mark, can you please add me to the group as well? With little kids and constant weekend activities, I don't know how often I'll be able to attend, but it would be nice to follow along. Thanks!

Hoping I can make it this time. I'm out of town until Feb 14th. If the next gathering is after that, count me in.

January 25 is the Lunar New Year, so how about the last day of February on the 29th? Or the 22nd?

A few of us had beer, which I think knocks out Cantlers. (Correct me if they do) We could go back to Boatyard, as it is always good, or I'll suggest The Point at Ferry Point Marina. https://www.thepointcrabhouse.com
