March 7 — Bowman Bay Messabout Deception Pass State Park. Contact: Al Gunther
Deception Pass State Park "is a 4,134-acre marine and camping park with 77,000-feet of saltwater shoreline, and 33,900-feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. Rugged cliffs drop to meet the turbulent waters of Deception Pass."
Tiny Deception Island is about a mile out from the Bay and makes a fun paddle or sail to round it and return to the Bay. The beach is sandy and lends itself to beaching boats and allows an excellent chance to meet fellow boaters and try out different boats, or just see the different craft. We'll plan to eat in the picnic area near the boat launch around noon. So come early enough to do some boating and bring a picnic lunch and maybe something to share, and your own drinks.

March 13-15 — South Sound Mini-Cruise Hartstine island.

A circumnavigation of Harstine Island is the "main event" planned. Exact details "will depend upon both weather conditions that weekend, and the numbers/types of boats attending.
