Port Hosts P/C Steve & Debbie Arkley

Anchor / Rafting only. You can choose a number of different spots to anchor, depending on the wind. Drop the hook in the middle of a triangle formed by Dix, Birch, and high, not far off the stone wharf on High, in about 15 ft. at low tide. The bottom varies in spots from rocky to sand and mud. The spot offers good protection from the prevailing south westerlies.
NOTE: There is a very shallow area to the West of High Island (2.9 ft. at low tide) - consult your chart and avoid this area. Shallow draft boats please anchor further east towards the sand beach to allow room for deep draft boats to anchor. Thanks.
Time & place: 1730 hrs. (5:30PM) ashore on Birch Island’s beach. Tide will be going out during the event, so plan accordingly with your dinghy.
🌎“Around the World, pick your country pot luck”. Boats will be assigned appetizer, main dish or dessert. Summon your inner chef’s creative side and prepare a unique dish from the country of your choice. Plates, plastic utensils, and napkins will be provided. Bring a comfy chair to sit in and a table if you want one. BYOB. “World Countries trivia bingo game”. On the beach after dinner. Brush up on your world geography and trivia ahead of this fun game of knowledge. The multiple choice question sheets will be passed out at the kick-off at Luke’s. Answer the questions and be prepared to play at Dix’s Island. At Dix’s the questions will be read out and the correct answer given. Each of the questions will be associated with a random square on your game card (that will be passed out at Dix’s). If you answered the question correctly, you get to fill in the square. First one to get all the squares across, down or diagonal WINS!
