Captain’s choice - Departure
ALL HAPS members are invited to this rendezvous, regardless of where you bought your boat. Signature has sold more Hunters to Puget Sound sailors than any other dealership in the area, and they put on a great rendezvous.
To reserve your space, contact Tori Parrott at Signature (or any other staff member there): (206) 284-9004 firstname.lastname@example.org
We are leaving the first two months of cruising season open, for HAPS members to initiate their own get-togethers on the water. (That thing about “Opening Day” on May 4? It’s a yacht club thing. Sailors are on the water every chance they can get.)
So plan in advance and let Comms know about it, or do it on short notice because you like the forecast for the weekend, and let the HAPS Facebook group know.
Sailing is better with people you know…
There will be a prize for the first person who finds a dealer display of new Hunter sailboats— without use of a time machine. Plan your visit, then let your fellow HAPSters know when you’ll be there, and how to get in touch while they are at the show. Let them know on the HAPS Facebook site Lots of great places to meet, eat and drink near the venue, thanks to the fame of a few teams who play there regularly… Lots of great seminars at the Boat Show. (None of them feature a time machine.)

Every February, the town of Langley does something special: the entire town devotes itself to embodying a murder mystery that takes all year to write, months to rehearse, and two days to solve. Over forty clues are scattered around the town, and the suspects and witnesses roam around in costume, ready to be interviewed by the over 2,000 participants.
After the public denouement in a local theatre, the winners are put in a draw for prizes contributed by local merchants, eating and lodging establishments.
It's a great time with HAPS friends.
Stuart and Linda Scadron-Wattles and John and Kerstin Hilton did it last year. Here's a link to Stuart's take on last year's event.
The Seattle Boat Show offers a lot: seminars, boat show pricing, a chance to decide once again that you made the right choice to own a Hunter... and a place to meet your HAPS friends.
Contact your friends individually via your member roster, or post on the HAPS Facebook site to let folks know when you're going to be there.
This is our annual activities planning meeting. While we have a draft plan, we need hosts and we're doing more no-host (Meetme@) events, and this is a great place to discuss those as well, as well as just meet up with the rest of the HAPSters,
Arrive at 3PM, go to the community room. Bring a dish to pass and a beverage of choice. We'll discuss the year, and then break for food and socializing. We'lll be done by 7PM.
Hosted by Specialty Yachts, Vancouver, BC Canada. You must register to attend, and there are fees (CAD$109/person), as well as moorage costs.
Those of us who have attended say it's a rollicking good time: Good and abundant food, fun games, informative sessions from key suppliers, and all of that Canadian hospitality.
All located in the Southern Gulf Islands. Add some cruising time, because....
