We have a few new and exciting "pre-Rendezvous" events to share with you! Two require pre-registration, so read on and plan to add the one(s) you want to attend when you register for the Rendezvous.
America's Boating Course - Fee: $40, limited to 50 attendees, pre-registration required
2 one-hour webinar sessions prior to the Rendezvous - Tuesday, April 30th & Wednesday, May 1st from 8:00 p.m. eastern until 9:00 p.m. eastern
In-person sessions from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 5th (lunch is included) and 9:00 a.m. - noon on Monday, May 6th
Join us as AGLCA Member Greg Kelso presents America's Boating Course. The most comprehensive in-person boating course available, America’s Boating Course gives you the skills you need to enjoy your time on the water and boat with confidence. Taking a boating class reduces your risk of accidents and injuries, saves you money on boat insurance, and qualifies you for a state boat license or operator certificate in most states. The USPS Operator's Card will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
There will be two, one hour webinar sessions in advance of the on-site session. These are scheduled for 8pm eastern time on Tuesday, April 30th and Wednesday, May 1st. They will be recorded, so if you cannot attend the webinars live, you can still register for this course and review them at your leisure prior to the Rendezvous.
Bike Building for Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Virginia - Free, but registration is required
Sunday, May 5th, 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Join your fellow Loopers as we assemble bikes for children in need. Curtis Stokes & Associates is sponsoring and planning this activity, and they'll be providing the bike kits. Groups of Loopers will build the bikes and then they'll be delivered to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia. A bit of Great Loop Trivia will even be thrown in!
Introduction to the Great Loop - No pre-registration required
Monday, May 6th, 12:30 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
This session will be presented by AGLCA's Director, Kim Russo, just before the "official" start to the Rendezvous. All Rendezvous registrants are welcomed to attend. No pre-registration is required. If you're already on the Loop, or if you've attended a Looper Lifestyle seminar or one of Kim's seminars at a boat show or TrawlerFest, this content may be a repeat of what you've already seen. The seminar will include answers to frequently asked questions about the Great Loop, Great Loop stats, and an overview of the route through pictures submitted by Loopers.
