CRUISE PLANNING FOR 2012
Thanks to Michelle and Jerry Anderson who hosted the squadron's
annual cruise planning meeting at their home 6 February. Fifteen members offered
suggestions and responded to cruise ideas and found it uplifting to discuss
summer cruising in February in Door County. The dessert goodies were equally
uplifting! Longer cruises were discussed along with several shorter, more local
cruises. Some of these cruises are more firm than others. None are finalized in
terms of ports of call and cruise dates.
