We are all watching the news and can conclude that Covid 19 is not going away soon.
Consequently, we have put together a tour and general meeting for Sept 12.
The all-day tour will leave Monroe and end at Ft Casey on Whidbey Island for a picnic and general meeting.
There are multiple picnic tables available, and even more wide open grass areas where we can spread out in our folding chairs and maintain some distance.
The weather is generally still good in early September, so we will hope for the best.

In the event of bad weather we will forego the club meeting and continue to Langley for lunch.
Ft Casey is a State park and we will need a State Discover Pass. If you don’t already have one, you can purchase on line or at the park kiosk a single day pass ($10) or annual pass ($30).
After the meeting, tour the battlements and the big guns that were installed during WWI to protect the entrance to Puget Sound.
We have options after the picnic/meeting.
You could continue to Langley to visit the town and shops. The Clinton ferry terminal is only a few miles from Langley to catch the ferry to Mukilteo.
Check the return ferry schedule here: Schedule
Or you can drive back up the island to take the freeway home. The tour is about 110 miles to Ft Casey, and about 135 miles to Langley.
We are doing what we can to provide some opportunities to safely get together during these trying times.
State Park Discovery Pass: $10/day, $30/year.
