37th Annual Campbell Boat Owner's Regatta-2009

Theme "Margaritaville!"

Sean Donahue T-shirt Design Winner



Our 37th Regatta was a big turn-out on Sept 11-13, 2009.

Total registration numbers, 41 Paid registered boats and persons attended 115+. Beach space was precious, and the most I counted at one time was 37 on the beach and in the channel at one time. Once again we appreciate all your volunteerism to help keep this event the stand-out it is, thanks to all of you. We started on Friday night at The Eagles Club for registration and to distribute goody bags and t-shirts. Saturday morning we were in the channel at the Kings Condos on the beach. We had our annual horseshoe tournament, and an excellent Pot Luck with Mitch Parker's (28' Sangria) usual Carne Asada feast. There was a 50-50 tickets raffle for sale and and poker/21 hands available for our Poker Run. In the afternoon it was around the lake for the Poker Run and then back to start decorating our "Margaritaville" boats. We had a good group of decorators this year. Our floating party boats hit the channel, with a few unappreciative Lake Havasu police asking some our boats to undecorate the front deck!!, but we made our parade and we tied up under the bridge to drink a margarita or two, interrupt a wedding up at Barley Brothers and and appreciate everyone's decorations. The next stop was back to the Eagles club for some delicious Prime Rib or Chicken Cordon Bleu and our awards ceremony. The weather was a little breezy Sunday morning, but some Campbellites made their way up to Moabi to end the week-end. We did have an an incidident that put a damper on the week-end, Marty and Rhinda Raymond's beautiful 24 "Dirt Martini" was involved in a marina fire Saturday night that to all our dismay ended in a total loss of one of our classics. The boat next to the Raymond's was determined to be the source, and fortunately for the club, Marty and Rhinda are on the hunt for a new Dirty Martini. Once again thanks to all of you who attended to make this such a great event and we expect to see more of you next year!
