    Default 2017 Coots Messabouts - a calendar

    This calendar contains all of the regional boating events we could round up. If you know of more... let me know, please!

    Boating enthusiasts from the Pacific NW... and beyond... are invited to attend any of the Coots events. With a boat, or without - makes no difference. We gather, we yak, we play with our boats, and we play with other people's boats. Oh... and we eat and drink. With the occasional swap meet thrown in. And did I mention yak? Even I get my fill of boat talk at a typical Coots event.

    I would call your particular attention to --

    April 21 - 23 -- Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show
    May 11 - 14 -- Big Lagoon Messabout. Humboldt County, CA. Organized by our own David 'Thorne the Magnificent' Luckhardt
    May 19 - 21 -- Fern Ridge Messabout. Eugene, OR.
    June 23 - 25 -- Columbia River Solstice Messabout. Cathlamet, WA.
    July 15 -- Hagg Lake Messabout. Forest Grove, OR.
    August 18 - 20 -- Toledo Wooden Boat Show. Toledo, OR. (just upriver from Newport).
    Sept. 15 - 17 -- Paulina Lake Messabout. Newberry Crater (south of Bend, OR.)

    <One correction to note - as mentioned above... Hagg Lake will now be July 15th, not the 9th>

    And Big Lagoon will be a Magnificent Event™, I promise! I usually can only make the Paulina Lake messabout in September as I come back from the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, but can highly recommend any Coots events - very friendly folks indeed.

    A reminder - Depoe Bay is this weekend. Come show off your boat. Or come and admire the boats on display. There's a crab feast happening, too. http://www.coots.org/mb/DepoeBay/index.html

    I came back early from the Depoe Bay show, because I have a bit of work backed up. I have to say, though, that it was an impressive show. Partly because of some great boats on display. Partly because you don't often actually see rain blowing fully horizontal. <G>
