It was announced at the August Lake Michigan Rendezvous that there would be a Rendezvous on Ontario's Trent Severn in the summer of 2018. I've been working with Ryan Stovold of Lefroy Harbour, Ontario's Ranger Tug dealer and Fluid Motion (Ranger Tugs and Cutwater Boats) with the planning of next summers event. I know its a long way off however for those that are snow blowing driveways and shoveling snow it can not come soon enough. So to wet your boating appetite we have tentative dates set of August 17-19th in Orillia, Ontario. There will be more details to follow once Ryan secures the dockage dates in Orillia. Ryan has offered to host an event at there marina, there will be cruising available for groups or solo both before and after the Rendezvous thru the scenic Trent Severn Waterway. More to follow but in the mean time if you have an interest in possibly attending post here and or email me directly so I can keep you posted as the plan formalizes. Official registration will not start until late spring.

Hi Jim

We will be completing the Great Loop at Sault Ste Marie roughly the end of August 2018 so we will be passing right by. Please add our name to the list of attendees.

Thanks,

Leon and Karen, I have added you to the young list, which already has 6 couples. If you would be so kind to PM me your email address and last name, as I send out group emails out with updates, etc. Enjoy the great Loop, its a wonderful adventure. You must be in Florida or down south far enough to enjoy the warmth.

All,
There is an extensive article in the Jan. 2018 Lake Land Boating magazine about the Trent Severn waterway.

Should make you folks residing up north even more anxious for spring!

Merry Christmas to the Favors from Al & Lisa Dettorre.

Jim please include us in the plan for this years rendezvous in Ontario. Our 2 year search for a 25 SC has been rewarded with the purchase of a 2016 R25 SC we will move to Ohio in early spring. The Michigan trip where we met all of the GREAT tug owners completely sold us on ownership, friendship, and customer support from the manufacturer.

Sincerely
The Dettorre’s

Al and Lisa: Congratulations on purchasing a great boat! Glad last years rendezvous paid off for you.
Jim & Lisa: You can put Anita and I (on Audrey Rose) on the tentative list. Trent Severn is on our bucket list and if we can make the dates work with work schedules 2018 is as good a time as any! Merry Christmas to all!

Yes! Please include Peter and Ann on TugBoat Annie in the plan for this year's rendezvous in the Trent Severn! We bought our 2016 R29 two years ago from Lefroy Harbour so it will be great to take her back to her beginnings and to introduce her to some other Ranger Tugs! We look forward to meeting everyone!
Wishing you a Happy New Year!

The Toronto International Boat Show runs from January 12-21 and Leroy Harbour Marine, Ontario's Ranger Tug dealer and sponsor of next summers Rendezvous will be in attendance. If you plan on going to the boat show Ryan Stovold and or Paul Cornwall will have Rendezvous information and a sign up sheet. Ryan and Paul can be found at the Enercare Centre Exhibition Place, space 1151 and will have an R23, R27 and R29CB on display and for sale. If you plan on going, have or don't have your name on the tentative sign up list or just have questions about the Rendezvous or Ranger Tugs seek out Ryan and Paul.

As of today we have 17 boats tentatively signed up, a pretty good start considering the event is 7 months off.

Rendezvous Update.....Since the last post we have firmed up dockage, catering, event center and more. Dockage will be at the City of ORILLIA Marina, pay for 2 nights and get the third night free. Our events will be held at the Legion Hall, just across the street from the marina. Fluid Motion will be represented with a warranty technition, most likely Ivan Guzman. The August 17-19 event itinerary will be forth coming but will include a pot luck on the first night, 3 catered meals, a pizza party, fun n games, a couple of presentations and the best commraderie any boater would be proud to be part of.

Official registration forms will be posted soon. When they are I'll have finalized the per person registration fee (covering meals, registration ditty bags, pizza party, Legion Hall rental, etc.). The per person fee will be approximately $85. The weekend in ORILLIA will be busy with us, an old car show and a marathon event.

Thanks to Mark Renshaw (R29 Irish Mist) for being our local eyes on the ground and his recommendations. thanks to Ranger Tugs, Cutwater Boats and LEFROY HARBOUR Maina (Ontario's premier Ranger Tug dealer) for helping support this event. As always if you have questions, feel free to post here, email or PM me.

Hi Jim and Lisa,
We are pleased to hear that you are arranging the Orillia Rendezvous, we signed the registration at the Toronto Boat Show when we saw Ryan. There is a 104 page free magazine "Discover Trent_Severn Waterway" available from www.discovermagazines.ca which is updated yearly. We used it a couple of years ago when we went to Lefroy for "Sequel's" 250 hour service and found it very useful.
