SUNNYLAND 2018 ANNUAL MEETING AND BANQUET
Mount Dora Yacht Club
It was a beautiful weekend for our Annual Meeting and Banquet in Mount Dora. The weekend started on Friday afternoon with a boat repair clinic at the Old Time Boat Company hosted by Ingrid, Gary and Doug Sherb. Doug and Gary explained some of the important clues to look for when considering the purchase of a boat that has been previously restored, particularly when epoxy was used for the restoration or construction.
The Friday evening cocktail reception kicked off the weekend festivities at the Mount Dora Yacht Club which was our venue for the weekend activities. Sunnyland members enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and adult beverages while reconnecting with longtime friends and fellow members. Live music throughout the evening enticed many folks to take a spin or two out on the dance floor.
Saturday morning started at the Yacht Club docks with a gathering of ten boats that took part in the chain of lakes boat run and lunch stop at the Lake Harris Hideaway water front restaurant. The weather for the day was sunny, cooler and a little breezy in the morning but made for a pleasant day on the water. Arrival of the boats before noon at the restaurant ensured that we had plenty of dock space for our group. The boats looked beautiful gleaming in the sun and all of the patrons at the restaurant were compelled to take a stroll down the docks to admire the impromptu classic boat show.
The Saturday evening Banquet Dinner was well attended again this year which is likely attributed to the great venue and centralized location with water frontage and private docks on Lake Dora on the Harris chain of lakes. Dinner was again catered by the nearby Pisces restaurant and annual awards were presented to end the evening
The Annual Meeting started at 9:00 am Sunday morning and many topics and important chapter happenings were discussed. The meeting ended around noon with members saying their goodbyes and looking forward to the upcoming Sunnyland events. This is always a fun weekend of activities and we hope to see you here next year.
