Thank you all for the early interest in next summers Rendezvous. As Fred stated interest seems to be strong. For those that have not yet stated an interest please do so as there is no obligation at this time. Official registration will commence in the spring.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.

We are very interested - we are brand new to Ranger Tugs - we purchased a Ranger 25SC in October and stored it so we haven't even been on the water with it. We have a slip reserved in Little Sturgeon Bay, Door County, Wisconsin and are anxious to meet other Ranger boaters. So please include us in the list of interested parties for the Great Lakes Summer Rendezvous. Randy and Deb Cook (Scuffy 2) Thanks!

Hoping to be owners by then. Either way, we'll be coming. Not sure if it will be by land or boat at this stage. Exciting!

Cheers to the New Year!

Jim:

Our last name is Rogers. Thus, Jolly Rogers.

We are hoping to come in our Tug, if we get one. If not, it will be by land.

Cheers,
Jim

Updated list information. In a few weeks I’ll be sending,in a group email to you, information regarding making marina reservations for any days before or after the Rendezvous. This does not apply to the actual Rendezvous dates as those dates (August 7-9) will be reserved as a group and paid for upon your arrival. Making reservations for before or after is paramount as we’ll be in Charlevoix during there busy and short summer high season. If you are not on this list and want to be included in this group email let me know via a post here with your name, email address, city n state and make and model of boat. Ken from Colorado and Jim n Rita from Indiana please provide me your email addresses. Have a great weekend.

This post is time sensitive and action needs to be taken if you would like to arrive early or stay after the August 7-9 Rendezvous in Charlevoix Michigan. Boat slips fill up quickly during the short Northern Michigan summer but there is a reservation system to reserve slips, up to 6 months in advance. This takes us to February 6th as the first dates you can reserve for August 6th or earlier, February 10 to reserve a slip for after the Rendezvous. NO NEED TO DO ANYTHING FOR THE AUGUST 7-9 Rendezvous dates, as I have them secured and we all pay for them when we check in.....so I’m only talking about dockage before or after our event.

To make a reservation go to http://www.midnrreservations.com on Feb 6th for days before the Rendezvous and Feb 10th for days after. Once you are on the main reservation page click onto the “Harbor” icon. After that, on the left side of screen, scroll down on marinas until you get to Charlevoix City Marina, put in your boat info and requested dates to see what is available and to finalize a reservation.

If you want to come in early or stay after the Rendezvous you’ll want to put this on your to do list for Feb. 6th and or Feb 10th and then make any additional reservations as early in the day as possible.
