I am currently working with two Board members of the Mystic Seaport Museum to organize a rendezvous of classic wooden and glass Alden designed boats. I have suggested the summer of 2018 in order to organize a great event and to allow time for all of you freshion up your bright work and make arrangements to bring your boats and you energy to eastern Connecticut. We have also been in contact with the MIT library to bring drawings and other John G. Alden memorabilia to the new Thompsom exhibit hall at the seaport. I have the promise of the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club Race Committe to host a race on Fishers Island Sound and we will have the run of the Museum after hours for a group dinner with entertainment. Our boats will of course be the stars of the show. Just sorry Neils couldn't join us.
Please let me know if joining this event is of interest. Also, please let other Alden owners know of these plans. I would really be great to finally get to meet many of you.
