 Big Retreat Weekend Coming Up

One of the BBRC’s most significant activities takes place this Friday and Saturday, as the Club gathers for its annual retreat. Dating back to the spring of 1988, Club members have participated in growing numbers to help plan the agenda for the coming year. President-Elect Steve Goldfarb is counting on nearly half of the membership showing up at Port Ludlow to ponder painstaking paradigms of prodigious partnerships, plying passages of pragmatic predilection, providing the prestige of profound progression to plan a propitious program, producing a period of prosperous and providential participatory pyrotechnics. This, too, will come to pass.

The weekend’s activities begin early on Friday, with golfers meeting the 10:10 a.m. ferry at Edmonds for the trip to Kingston and on to Port Ludlow. The first tee time is 12:15 p.m. Pairings for the 17 hackers will be emailed by Tim Moriarty this week. Box lunches will be provided at the course. Tim is looking for a volunteer to help with prizes. Email him if you can help out.

For the non-golfers planning to participate in the retreat, a ferry schedule from Edmonds provides the options for travel. The same site gives other ferries to catch, such as the Seattle-Winslow sailing.

A “retail therapy” session, conducted by Jenny Andrews, will take place late in the afternoon on Friday. This is free to the several Rotarians who plan to spend big bucks on the Port Ludlow economy.

Gathering time for Friday evening’s schedule is 5:00 p.m., with a reception being held first, followed by a dinner at 6:00 p.m., and program at 7:00 p.m. After a heavy evening of brain-stretching exercise, the crew will catch a few winks, only to arise for breakfast at 7:00 a.m. and begin at 8:00 a.m. the serious task of building a program for next year. The retreat will break up around 11:30, with box lunches provided, as the annual mad dash to the ferries begins.
