Mini Marina - River Side

When listening to the morning net (VHF 69 at 7:30, M-S) , you will hear a few ads from Norman, the head honcho of Mini Marina.  He reminds us it is passport extension day and that he has over 500 books to swap, most of them dry.  He also promotes whatever he has to sell, usually used outboard motors.  The big question is 'Where IS Mini Marina?'

Understandably,  the river brings in so many boats every year, that some of them never quite make it out.  One of those boats belongs to Clem, an escapee from Canada (can you blame him?),  an excellent handyman who can make things work. But usually, you have to have some access to parts to make that happen.  Voila, as they say, Clem came up with the idea for a consignment shop, where boaters who want to "lighten the load" could leave those treasures from the bilge, in order to sail a bit further.

A big Flea Market (maybe that should be Sand Flea Market) will be held this Saturday, March 24 at the Crow Bar. It is anticipated (not promised) that there will be lots of boat stuff, new and used computer and electronic stuff, clothing, fishing tackle, tools, etc. spread all over the place.

In addition, Washer Pitchin' will be introduced to the Rio. (Caution: this is a very addictive sport).

Activities start at 9 a.m. and continue all day long.

Gourmet breakfast burritos and pancakes will be available for consumption.

ABOUT 70 FOLKS attended the second El Relleno Race

Wild Willy won da dwinking class.

The favorite Little Humper didn’t manage to get off the starting line.

Mean Joe Brown had the audacity to cruise around the race course shooting other drivers with his water gun.
