January 26 Log Canoe Lecture and Dinner at Boatyard Grill
A few years back, a group of us met at Boatyard Grill for dinner and then continued over to the Annapolis Maritime Museum for one of their Winter Lecture Series nights.

We had great time!  We have a limited group in the winter, due to the fact many have "run away" to warmer places.   Please sign up on the event calendar so we know how many to expect - ASAP!
Plans:
Meet at Boatyard grill for dinner at 5pm.  We will try to sit together and order from the menu with separate checks.  The lecture starts at 7 - but parking is tight - so you may want to walk down from the restaurant (about 4 blocks) or drive down a little early to get a spot.  The lecture starts at 7pm. 

The lecture is first come, first served and costs $10 per person (cash).  The lecture on Log Canoes I think is about 1.5 hours:
Tradition and Innovation: Chesapeake Bay Sailing Log Canoes
Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoes have their origins as oystermen’s boats but have also been raced competitively since the eve of the American Civil War and after more than a century and a half, the competition is as stiff as ever. This illustrated lecture will show how these boats remain rooted in tradition despite decades of innovation to increase their speed and performance.
Presenter: Pete Lesher, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Chief Curator
Admission is $10 per person and FREE for First Mate and above members.  Space is limited. First come, first serve.
