|One of those nice, warm days of fall arrived a little early for the Richmond Rendezvous. There was a little wind in front of the Gate, so the short ride from almost anywhere to Richmond had the fleet in and tied up by early afternoon. "Med Moored" stern first to the guest dock was the easiest way to get lots of boats in. Shade beneath the roof overhangs on the RYC deck was most welcome. Sitting there watching San Francisco shimmer across the Bay was delightful, particularly with a tall cool Margarita for the Mexican theme. |
Cooking was easy on the grill, and tables inside made serving and eating most enjoyable. Tim & Rhonda, and Jim & Laurie had large Mexican hats which got passed around as the evening wore on. Betsy Fowler snapped pictures for posterity (and we got one of her with the hat). Then on to the famous Uno game. It was high spirited - Earl & Evelyn Roberts played with the I-36 bunch for the first time, and quickly learned this was not your casual card game. Voices were raised, rules were read and debated, names were politely drenched with scarcasm when calling "Draw Four", Rhonda finessed the "Uno" call twice, and, despite starting off with two winning hands and being just 20 points from a men's victory, the women once again stormed back to win the game.
