Thank you to all who attended the Campout

The camp out was a success! Thank you to everybody who was able to make the trek out to the historic town of Locke. We were only slightly rained on and our local host, Russel Ooms, offered a guest house for those with soggy tents. We cooked, we played music, we even built a rudder in Russ's woodworking shop located only few hundred feet from where the boat was anchored. We were able to load all the attendees onto the Relentless for a Saturday Cruz and much adventure.

What a blast!
