One of our transient neighbors is here with the group and I learned that they plan a couple meetings each year -- one in Florida and one "up north." According to the MTOA website, there are over 1,000 boats in their membership pool. Talk about a great way to meet people.
Since most of their members own slow-moving trawlers their mascot is a turtle. There were turtle pins everywhere.
A couple quick scenes from their first day on the dock:
|Turtle merchandise anyone?|
|Show your MTOA pride with hats and shirts. Some of my favorite t-shirts have been acquired at boating rendezvous.|
|Gift bag anyone? Wish I knew what was in them.|
|Bringing the beach to Baltimore.|
|I'm sure they all received this newsletter another way but it was nice to see it posted at the marina office.|
