11:00 Brunch @ Troy & Gails (80 people)

After Brunch, there will be a treasure hunt/ice breaker to
include all 3rd-gen family members under 20 years of age in teams,
solving clues provided by 1st tier family. Second-tier and older 3rd
tier family can boat --there will be two boats giving rides around
the Bay plus paddle boats -- play bocce ball (Dennis can provide
direction on rules), and general frivolity.
Most of the afternoon will then be unstructured, with
swimming, boating, tubing, walks, fishing and visiting. Janice, Teresa, Heather, Kurt, and Virginia have prepared a video of the family heritage, as well as the
"Hawaii" family reunion from a few years ago, and they can be viewed
anytime. Bring swimming suits, towels, and water toys you want.
Skiers may bring their own skis or wake boards. There's good fishing
off the shore, so bring your own poles and licenses if you're so
Snacks will be provided throughout the afternoon. Janice &
Dennis, could you please take care of bringing vegetable and fruit
trays, as well as sub sandwiches?. Pick & Save in Sturgeon Bay makes
great – huge and tasty – subs called "The Boss". Very large, and only
$5. If you'd like us to reserve a few we'll make the calls, but would
appreciate you picking them up. Could "second tier" cousins please
bring chips, pretzels, dips, cheese & crackers and other yummy snacky
things for the afternoon?
6:00: dress for dinner (in Pirate regalia)
Pirate parade, family photos & voting (photos by Jake & Nichole)
Fish boil: crab legs and scallops, potatoes, carrots
Rye bread & cracked pepper/potato bread
Make-your-own ice cream sundae bar

*Except for those mentioned, all other drinks are to be provided
by the individual families: Bring Your Own Booze, Soda, or whatever
else you want, in your own coolers.
Be sure to bring swimsuits!!!!
