Annapolis MD Sailboats
Beginning with this falls sailboat shows, Sharon Day, Ron Frisosky and Max Munger decided to try to put together a new and permanent Catalina Owners Association booth. Attached are some pictures of the final display at the Annapolis Sailboat Show October 6-10 2005. (See the owners booth in action again in St Pete, Chicago, Miami and Oakland). (There is no Philadelphia show this year) We hope the class associations appreciate Catalina’s efforts this year to give them the appropriate display they deserve. Thanks to all the owners booth volunteers everywhere have done so much over the years to promote Catalina ownership!
The Owners Booth first appeared around 1978, originated by Sandy Wagner (C36 Fleet 3). Sandy brought her own card table, a stand up sign and lots of scotch tape! Max joined her in the mid eighties and has coordinated and been there ever since. Bill Campbell, a C36 owner and proprietor of the Virginia Diner (Wakefield, VA) has supplied his famous peanut packets since the beginning. Jim Holder supplies the Mainsheet magazines for handouts. Volunteers from all the local Catalina fleets are solicited every year to provide brochures and applications and to man the booth and solicit memberships during the 5 day outdoor show. Here are photos of some previous setups…
