~~  Saturday the Squadron Raft-Up off Old Port Cove  ~~ 

On a usual sunny day in south Florida our members board their boats for a Squadron Raft-Up
in Lake Worth off Old Port Cove.  What a nice relaxing day. 
~  Below 9 photos formatted not to enlarge  ~

We gather at the Ports O' Call docks and board Captain Bob Malone's pontoon boat for the cruise to the Raft-Up off Old Port Cove.
With our burgee flapping in the breeze on a sunny day we approach and join the Raft-up.
Diane Clarke views the "gathering fleet" as we approach and she notes John Worssam's "anchor boat", Euphoria, as
Ole Sail course teacher Bud Green hails a greeting.


Big and small they arrive.  David Cross secures his Jet Ski after arriving for the Raft-Up as Anchor Boat Capt John Worssam and
Verena Flanders look on. 


Dick Clarke chats over the rail with Michael Stern . . . naturally about boating stuff or the big one that got away.
Boat hopping during raft-ups found Rowena Randle (adjusting her hair), a smiling Verena Flanders, Janice Tedesco, Bill Flanders (cap)
Dot Blackburn, and Al Casanova (blue shirt) all engaging in pleasantries


Janice Tedesco (r) and Dot Blackburn (L) display some of their nice cold fresh fruit pass-a-rounds.
Cdr Les McWhorter, Verena Flanders (center) and Donna McWhorter look over the bridge photo that will be displayed in our
headquarters building.  Looking on (l to r) P/C Barbara Roemmele, Al and Fran Casanova, Michael Stern and Jim Palmer.

Jim Tedesco enjoys some (many) of Kathy Eldridge's yum, yum home made pickles.
