We have reserved the corner next to the restrooms and golf cart rental.  This is the same location as last year.

Golf Cart Rental

We have arranged to rent 6 passenger golf carts for the price of a 4-person cart at Seaway.  We’ll need several for Saturdays activities and suggest we all pitch in to rent four or five carts.


Plan to arrive in time for cocktails at 6:30 on Friday. Please bring an appetizer to share.  We have a special friggatriskaidekaphobia contest planned for the evening that you won’t want to miss.

Saturday will begin with Bloody Marys and Mimosas provided by power fleet and a pot luck breakfast provided by you. 

After breakfast, we’re off on a skill-based Wheel of Fortune run.  We’ll draw names for teams and each stop will require that each member of your team demonstrate the required skill before receiving their letters.  Yep, its Wheel of Fortune with a twist.  You’ll have to earn your letters, and you get to spell your own word/phrase. There’s a fantastic prize for the winning team. You win by spelling Vermilion Boat Club or by spelling the longest word or phrase. Along the way we’ll have lunch at Kelley's Island Brewery 504 W Lakeshore Dr, Kelleys Island, OH 43438. Phone: (419) 656-4335

Saturday evening we’re planning a group dinner at West Bay Inn, 123 W Lakeshore Dr

Sunday morning we’ll have an awards ceremony and our first ever “Last to shove off” contest. First to leave is a LOSER.  If you’re sticking around, we’ll have breakfast at Bag the Moon, 109 W Lakeshore Drive, Kelley’s Island, OH 43438 and maybe a quick golf cart tour of the island.
