On the Horizon

HVAC Clinic 9:00am – Noon Sat. June 26 – Education Director Daniel Knierien will conduct a hands-on clinic at the Sundance II Palapa.  Compressors will be on display and Daniel will instruct attendees on equipment operation, trouble shooting and repairs.  This time of year our boat air-conditioning is essential so don’t miss out.


Pirate Party 5:00 – 8:00 pm Sat. June 26 – Calling all would be pirates, brigands, and regular boaters.  Plan to muster at the Railean Distillery Buccaneer Bar.  Hosts Michelle Weidner and John Judas join with members Kelly and Mathew Railean for a evening of swagger, delicious appetizers, and ‘homemade’ rum beverages.  Dress for the occasion as the fiercest pirates and costumes will receive a prize.  The Railean Distillery is located at 341 5th Street, San Leon, Texas 77539.
