June Update...

Finally the winter is over, Spring sprung and the Full Moon Cruisers came out to play!  In March was the wonderful Mardis Gras event.  The blind referee did it!  The food was fabulous and so much fun was had!

Jay and Rini Hopkins led the April Full Moon Cruise while several Cruisers including Tony and Brenda Coy, Tim Buss, Bob and Becky Hopkins, Dick Dermody, Stitch and others made their annual trek to Charleston to perform various duties as race officials for Race Week.
In May, Cruisers Bob and Becky Hopkins put on a wonderful and very well attended wine tasting event.  
The Coys signed on as crew for a 850-mile passage up the coast (650 non-stop) to Maine, and Cruisers Dan and Patty West, Johnnie and Mickie Poole and Harry and Anna Garcia all pirated the waters of Florida before returning to us in Augusta.  

The Poker Series of big boat racing is underway and will conclude with the Firecracker Regatta on June 28-29.  You need not have raced in the Poker Series to partake in this weekend of race fun.  Just stay tuned to the ASC website for more information.

May’s Full Moon Cruise was well attended by 7 boats, and June’s Passage to Plum Branch was a great success with even more.  19 human and 4 canine members of ASC dined at the Lakeside Grill and listened to local musicians June 14, before returning to the raftup.  Thanks, Jay and Rini Hopkins and Bob and Margaret Centers for shuttling those ashore who forgot their kayaks! 

Need to make changes to the electrical systems on your boat before you bring her out to the raftups?  There will be an afternoon of electrical system design and installation instruction on June 22.  Again, just stay tuned to the ASC website for more information.

Firecracker Regatta.  Racing for cruisers!  June 28-9.

Our next “Full Moon” Cruise is July 4-6, for the Thunder Over Thurmond raftup.  This is traditionally our longest cruise and largest raftup, often with in excess of 10 boats attending.  Come watch the fireworks with us Saturday night at the entrance to Soap Creek!  Make sure you are on the email list, as some of us will depart Friday in search of true 4th fireworks up either the Savannah or Little rivers.

Don’t forget Beach Day July 19th!  The Bragg’s Tiki Hut will be back with threatened improvements.  Don’t forget your water toys!

See you at the lake,
