*GCSC Members get first priority for registrations

WHEN: Saturday, May 4, Noon to 4pm

WHERE: Port 32 Marina Marco Island
                705 E. Elkcam Circle
                Marco Island, FL  34145

Note: Free parking at the marina.  Be SURE to go to Port32 Marco Island.
Port 32 has multiple locations.

WHAT: Two, new 21 foot Starcraft Deck boats, 150 hp.  A deck boat is easier to board than a Bowrider. So, our beach landing off-and-on boarding is easier.  

I've reserved two (2) boats, with a total capacity of 8 people per boat (including skipper). John Steiner will skipper Boat 1 and Doug Foss will skipper Boat 2.

There are 14 passenger seats available for May 4.

Spectacular views along the 7 mile long beach and good shelling.
Picnic lunch on the beach. 
Return to boats and go to Keewaydin Island for beach walk ---then return to Port32 by 4 pm

APPROXIMATE COST (all in): $70 per person.  Each person brings whatever he/she wants to eat and drink.  Reimburse John Steiner.

GEAR:  Bathing suits recommended for swimmers.  Hat, sunscreen, beach towel, sheets of toilet paper, plastic bags for shelling and trash.

Hope to see you onboard on May 4 (Saturday) at Noon to 4pm.

John and Doug

John Steiner reserved both boats for both days.  So please reimburse him the day of the sortie, preferably with cash, but Zelle is okay.
