|ALBEMARLE RALLY 2007
The votes are in and the overwhelming majority have voted for the south side of Cape Cod. It also turned out that we as a group are the sociable types and are as interested in the social aspects of the rally as well as the fishing. Based on your requests we'll be holding the rally at Oak Bluffs on the island of Marthaís Vineyard. The dates the rally will be held on are August 31 - Sept 3, 2007.
The Town of Oak Bluffs is a resort town on the northeast shore of the island of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Oak Bluffs operates the largest marina on Martha's Vineyard, which not only has the most slips, but is situated in the midst of the historic gingerbread campgrounds, and offers easy access to the rest of the Island. "OB", as it is sometimes referred to, also is home to several beautiful public beaches, a teaming shore of wildlife, fish and shellfish, fabulous public parks and even a microbrewery, and the island's finest golf course, Farm Neck. Today, an active downtown is complete with exciting restaurants, charming inns, shops, and galleries, a variety of specialty food shops, movie theatres, and places to enjoy live entertainment and dancing. Several annual events highlight Oak Bluffs calendar of events: The 20th Monster Shark Tournament, Illumination Night in the Campground cottages, and the August Fireman's Association Fireworks. Please see http://www.ci.oak-bluffs.ma.us/ for additional information. FYI - Iíve petitioned to have the rally included in the Oak Bluff Calendar of Events
Reservations for slips can be made starting February 1, 2007. If you are interested in a slip I suggest you reserve one as early as possible. Moorings can not be reserved. I also suggest you make your lodging reservations as early as possible. Please see http://www.oakbluffsmv.com/ for lodging information.
Iíll be getting out an application form and information regarding accessing the Vineyard, launch ramps, etc in the next few weeks.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on the Vineyard!
