Naval Station, Great Lakes

November, 2017


Boats are being hauled, leaves are turning, the "Witch of November" lurks around the corner and the end of the season is here. Hopefully it has been a good season for you.

Our last event will be the end of season party. Elections for officers will take place at this meeting so if you are thinking that you could contribute ideas to our club please consider standing for a position.

We will be holding the party at the Graffiti Grill. Kenny has promised to provide something special for us as it's the last time we will be meeting there. The cost will be a little extra, $20:00 but it will be well worth it.

Details are:

Date: November 18

Time 18:00

Place: Graffiti Grill, 715 Rockland Rd. (Rt. 176), Lake Bluff, IL 60044

Price: $20:00

I really need you to RSVP on this one. Email to

Remember that even if your boat is no longer moored at Great Lakes you are still a club member.

Next year we will be returning to Flanagans at Rt. 41 and Buckley Rd. Long time members will remember that we met there years ago in the upstairs room. This time it will be downstairs so no stairs to climb. Instead of a fixed price we will order from the menu so everyone will get what they like.

See you at the party.
