Looper Crawl highlight of rendezvous
America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association (AGLCA), an on-line community of Great Loop cruisers with headquarters in Charleston, South Carolina, has announced its ever-popular annual Fall Rendezvous and Reunion. The four-day long festivities, presentations and workshops will take place on October 25-28, 2009, at Joe Wheeler State Park in Rogersville, Alabama.
This year’s fall gathering, AGLCA’s largest annual Rendezvous and Reunion, is once again taking place at Joe Wheeler State Park Marina. Most attendees of the Fall Rendezvous have been on the Loop for several months, and coming to Wheeler means reuniting with friends they have met along the way. Staying in one marina, surrounded by magnificent scenery just off the main Tennessee River, allows for mixing and mingling with old friends and new members. Traditionally, the Fall Rendezvous offers presentations about the waterway journey from Alabama to South Carolina, general lessons on safety, vessel safety checks and valuable cruising information about the mid-western rivers.
The highlight of the event is the Looper Crawl. The socializing continues with this event as Loopers open their boats to one another. This is a great chance for newcomers to see what Loop old-timers like and dislike about the vessel they have chosen.
The event is limited to AGLCA members; however, the association offers trial memberships for those who are interested in learning about the Great Loop and the association. Space is limited and an early registration is required. Registration is $219 per person and covers all events, seminars, side sessions, and group meals.
AGLCA is an organization of boaters who have cruised or dream of cruising any or all of North America’s eastern waterways, known as the Great Loop. The association is committed to sharing navigational and cruising information that will enhance the enjoyment and safety of those cruising these waterways.
