Katherine Landing D-28 Rendezvous
April 8 - 10, 2011
By Lt/C Dan Sheen

The highlight of the past month for me was the Katherine Landing trip on April 8-10. Attendees from Phoenix included Bill and Connie Johnson, Terry and Jean Grey, Art Ashton, and Dan Sheen (me) and my son, Peter Sheen. Bill Bridge came up from San Diego with a friend Don Cotton. Our hosts from Mohave included John and Jean Militello, Norm and Sharon Dack, Mike and Barb Accardo, JoAnne Waller, Al and Eileen Trueman, and Joe and Sharon Weller.

The weather started out really bad and we hit SNOW in Kingman. Once we got to Lake Mohave the weather cleared and everyone bundled up a bit for appetizers with the Mohave squadron providing the hot ones. My son, Peter stayed in bed through most of the appetizers but then laid his ears back and cornered some pineapple meatballs as people were headed home.

Really cool dock—The participants were bundled up against the unseasonably cold weather at the Katherine Landing rendezvous. (Photo courtesy of Sharon Weller)

Pontooning on the Colorado—Bill Johnson and Sharon and Joe Weller brave the elements.

The weather the next day was cloudy and threatening but pretty. There was a little window of opportunity and three boats went out. Joe and Sharon were joined by Bill Johnson on their pontoon. With the marginal weather, we had the ramp to ourselves and the boats took over the end of the courtesy dock

Terry and Jean took out their boat Time Out. Art Ashton joined Peter and I on Aquastar. We were followed back to the Marina by a small storm. Yours truly was the last one back but Art Ashton did some speedy trailer work and we beat the rain by nearly a full minute.

The weather outside threatens - Time to retreat to the inside.

Blustery only outside—Terry and Jean Gray with Connie and Bill Johnson find a snug harbor at Lake Mohave.

Restaurant Scene—More, including Art Ashton, P/D/C Bill Bridge from California and Peter Sheen, far from the madding crowd, enjoy the warmth of companionship and a proper heater.

Because the weather was threatening the normal Saturday Night Barbeque was cancelled and everyone ate at the restaurant.
The final day was a joy with absolutely no wind. Bill Johnson joined Terry and Jean on Time Out and Art joined me and my son, Peter, on Aquastar and we made a speed run up to Cottonwood Marina. Lots of largemouth bass were on spawning beds on the shoreline by the marina dock. I was able to purchase a rare Cottonwood Cove refrigerator magnet for the my family collection.
