We have been on MTOA for a while. We are members of the First Coast group. Unfortunately their lunches happen down in the Palm Coast area. That would be a 2.5 hour round trip for us, so a bit far for lunch.

This thread was more about events or get-togethers than where to go.
Which the Chesapeake Magazine guides and magazines will have virtually all of them for you. Are they amongst those on your boat?

The Waterway Guide site and weekly (free) newsletters are good sources too. https://www.waterwayguide.com/latest...chesapeake-bay

The Chesapeake has so many festivals, fairs, gatherings and other events they need to be cataloged.

Well I went into the closet where I put all the charts and guides from Sonas and found this lot. I need to look and see what is useful and then consider if I want to buy the latest versions of anything.

So this is it for the period we are there - if we are in these areas.

I suspect the MTOA events are for those who boat locally. And it would be a short trip to them. I just don't see us changing our cruise plan for these.

Not being mean or anything, but a lunch or dinner isn't going to do it necessarily.

Now if we can Uber or Taxi there from whereever we are, that's a different story.
