        NOTE: New date for this cruise is Apr 5th – 7th.

        It’s time to book your spot for this Spring’s RCYC Land Yacht cruise. We will be going to Skamokawa Vista Park just down river from Cathlamet on the Washington shore or the Columbia. Plenty of spots available at this time but don’t wait as that can change quickly. See the below information and links for this member suggested destination. Roxana and I are in site V9.

        This destination has Yurts and a cabin available for those without an RV. Join us for a good time.

        Skamokawa Vista Park

        Vista Park opened in 1981 on a 75-acre site along SR4 in Southwest Washington, located in the historic community of Skamokawa. Each year it draws locals and tourists alike for camping, picnicking, easy beach access, hiking, inspiring river views and recreational activities.

        History
        Skamokawa has both a long history and prehistory; it was the site of an Indian village over two thousand years ago. The name Skamokawa means “smoke on the water,” so called after the fog which drifts down the three valleys opening onto the town and the Columbia River. Skamokawa was also the name of the last chief of the Wahkiakum Indians who’s home was located on the West end of the beach now known as The Cove.

                  Our spring land yacht cruise is approaching. There are still spaces available. In addition, there are still yurts and a cabin available for rental so you do not need an RV to participate. Another alternative, Cathlamet has cabins available to rent. Get your reservations made while you can.

                  Come join us for good comradery and activities. Biking, hiking, kayaking, etc. and don’t forget River Mile 38 pub.

                  Also, if you are coming please send me you space number so I can include it on the campground map.

                  Hope to see you there.

                              Currently, we have 10 memberships taking part in this cruise. I will be working with the Campground to reserve one of the shelters for our use. In addition, I will be contacting River Mile 38 pub to get their hours.

                              This is going to be a fun weekend. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

                              See attached map for member locations.

                                Had a question on our dock woalk today. Is there a potluck or are folks just bringing their own meals to eat together or??

                                  Good question. My intent was to pole the group. My thinking is have a pot luck one evening and hit River Mile 38 the other. Let me know your thoughts on which night for which location. Also, I am looking to use one of the covered shelters for our potluck.

                                            Question about the potluck. When do we want to do it. Friday night or Saturday night??
                                            River mile38 says no outside food starting April first due to their opening of their new restaurant. We will need a reservation at Salt and Tomato per Cristina Bodine at RM38.

                                              I am leaning toward keeping the potluck on Saturday like all other cruises. This will keep confusion to a minimum (I hope). I will be calling the campground next week to see about reserving a shelter for the PL. I will also be calling RM38 before the weekend to let them know our intentions.

                                              All other ideas are welcome.

                                                      I talked to RM 38 about how they prefer we make reservations. They will not make a reservation for less than 6 or more than 12. More than 12 would have to reserve/rent the place. That being said, We now have 2 reservations, one for 12 and one for 6. If you would like to be included in a reservation, drop me an email and I will put you on the list and make the reservation.

                                                          Potluck – side dishes? Everyone bring their own main? We will bring a dessert.

                                                            Cruise potlucks are “bring a dish to share.” Letting others know on this forum what you are bringing (main dish, salad or dessert) is recommended. I would hate to have all salads or all desserts and no main dishes.

                                                            We will be bringing an Apple pie.
