PSCC Cruise Planning Dinner (December 3)

Cruise Planning Dinner

  • Sunday December 3 from 4:30pm till we’re done.
  • At Steve & Elsie’s house
  • Email Commodore Sheri at sv.pangea2022@gmail.com for details.

Arrive at 4:30 for drinks and appetizers. Main meal at 5:30. We’ll start the scheduling at 6:30.

We will have a Puget Sound chart taped to dining room doors and an easel in the living room by the fireplace🔥. Sight lines are good anywhere in room.

Elsie will make a couple pots of spaghetti sauce, one with meat and another vegetarian. We will have pasta as well.

Please bring appetizers, salads, French bread, desserts, et cetera. Please call or e-mail Elsie a couple a days ahead with what you’re bringing so we don’t end up with seventeen plates of salad.

Commodore, Shilshole Sheri and the crew of SV Discovery will be on hand to set up, maybe a couple more hands would be nice.
