Maine Rally

MAINE RALLY HIGHLIGHTS        10.18     by Rich Bonewitz

The Maine rally was held Aug 28th to Sep 5th at Booth Bay, ME and what a rally it was. Attendees included the Alexander, Allen, Bonewitz, Buelow, Gilbert, Greenwood, Groves, Schoolar, Sohles, Tilman, and Wolfe families, a real good showing considering the distance members had to travel. Meals included lobster, lobster, and more lobster. The weather was great and the campground was close to Booth Bay and very accommodating. Happy hours and heavy snacks were held daily along with delicious steamed clams. One of the major highlights was a clambake on privately owned Cabbage Island. Took a ferry on a 1.5 hour tour of Booth Bay harbor and then on to Cabbage Island where we were greeted by Mrs. Moore, the 97 year old matriarch of the Moore family. We were then treated to a delicious dinner including 2 whole lobsters, 1 pound of clams, onions, potatoes, corn on the cob, along with blueberry cake for desert. Yes, that was per person. Great meal and no one left hungry. After dinner, back to the ferry and an enjoyable ride back to Booth Bay harbor. Booth Bay is a beautiful area to visit with a lot to see and do. We had so much fun this year; we are going to do it again next year. Contact me for dates and details. Rich
