DPBA Tall Ships Festival Booth

Dear  ,
The Ocean Institute's 2010 Tall Ships Festival is coming up the weekend of September 10-12, Friday evening, and all day Saturday and Sunday.  We didn't want to miss out on the fun, so this year The Dana Point Boaters Association (DPBA) will man a display booth both days in the Arts & Crafts Show, on the grass at Baby Beach (Saturday & Sunday)!
Tour The Pilgrim and 6 Other Authentic Tall Ships!

Here's a way you can really help!  If you can afford to spend a couple of hours to help man our booth, your fellow boaters and members will appreciate it. (That's not exactly work is it?)  Our thanks to our members that have already volunteered to help man our DPBA Tall Ships Festival Booth.  We have a few more time slots open during the two day event (2 hour shifts).  So come on down, make some new friends and meet lots of other boaters and DPBA Members.
What's involved?  Spend some time at the booth, learn what's going on in the Harbor and chat with your fellow boaters who are visiting the booth.
That's really all there is to it!  There's plenty of news updates on both land and water side Revitalization, the new design for the Embarcadero, slip rates and much more, so you won't be bored.
As a special incentive to our members, any member who volunteers to man a shift will receive a FREE DPBA T-Shirt.
Here's all you need to do, just reply to this email, let us know what day(s) and hours you would like to help out.

The Dana Point Boaters Association is the champion of recreational boating and the jewel that is Dana Point Harbor.
Mission Statement:
The Dana Point Boaters Association advocates the preservation, enhancement, and expansion of affordable recreational boating resources.  We work to improve the family friendly atmosphere and breadth of water-oriented actives we all enjoy in the harbor.  We serve as the watchdog by ethically protecting the rights of all boaters and representing them when collective action is most effective.  We actively gather information and communicate our views to educate boaters, external interests, and public officials.  We build and maintain constructive, working relationships to achieve common goals with other harbor stakeholders.  We will pass on our harbor to the next generation of recreational boaters in better condition than it is today.
