    RE: September 2020 Krog-In (Anacortes, WA)

    Dear Fellow NWKKOG Members,

    The NWKKOG Executive Committee met this morning by teleconference to discuss the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the planning and execution of the 2020 Krog-In. 

    We have come to the following conclusions.

    • ·       The Executive Committee does not have the necessary information at this point to make a go versus no-go decision.
    • ·       We will meet again (via teleconference) on June 26, 2020 to make a final decision on whether to go ahead with our annual event or cancel the event for 2020.
    • ·       If we decide to go ahead during our June 26 call we will let you all know and will open registration immediately.

    These are difficult times for all of us, and nothing would be better than to have a good old-fashioned Krog-In in September. We all sincerely hope that this will be the outcome.

    Please stay safe and we will be back in touch on or about June 27, 2020 with the plan and next steps.

    We would like to end this note by giving a BIG THANK YOU to the booklet subcommittee: Bob Vargo and Debroah McDonald (Dos Rojas); and Bill and Joan Neiman (Tippecanoe). The booklet looks spectacular and we all sincerely thank you for your great efforts.

    The NWKKOG Executive Committee (Brad Popovich, Ginger Marshall, Julie Lund, Sean Kelly, Jan Chapman and Neal Parker)

    Time to start thinking summer!

    Our committees are up and going!  We are beginning to talk!  The 2020 Krog-in is coming together! Now it is your turn even if you can't make the Krog-in!

    We are beginning the updates on our member booklets so we can get them out early before we leave the docks!  We need you to get on the web-page  (kadeykrogenowners.org)  and check your information so it can be printed correctly in the 2020 booklets!  In a few weeks it will be too late as we need to get the booklets to the printers mid February and they still must be put together.

    Remember: Save the dates!  2020 Northwest Kadey Krogen Krog-In, September 22,23 - 26, 2020, Anacortes WA, We really hope to see you there and we hope to hear from you about your adventures on the web-page soon!

    Dear Krogenites!

    Most of you are currently planning out this next summer's cruising!  

    Now for the real reason of this letter! We want to travel with you each summer and imagine how much fun you all are having and we thought it might be fun for us all to share  where you  cruise (the general area) each summer and see  pictures (one up to ten pictures) for a slideshow at the Krog-in.  

    Last years slideshow did not get to be viewed by many but we will try harder this coming summer!  If you want to see the 2018 slide show go to You-Tube and search for NW Kadey Krogen Owners Summer 2018 pictures...

    Not going to make the Krog-in this year?  That’s “kind of” OK, you can still stay in touch and fill us in on where you are cruising and submit some pictures too!  (We still care!)  We can then look each other up and see the photo albums on the member pages if we want to.

    Here is what I would like to have you do…

    • 1.      Choose your top 10 pictures from your cruise this summer.
    • 2.      Go onto the web page and make a Member Photo Album, add pictures and captions and I will tell you how!  Then leave the rest to me!  We will have a great slide show ready for you at the Krog-in showing some wonderful things from some wonderful crews. 

    How to make a Member Photo Album:

    • 1.       Once you are signed onto the web page, click on your name in the upper right corner
    • 2.      click on View profile tab
    • 3.      click on Member photo albums tab
    • 4.      click on Add Album tab
    • 5.      and then name your album:   KROG-IN 2019 Pictures - (main cruising area you visited this summer) Note: your album title can not end with a period.
    • a.       My  2018 album was:  KROG-IN 2018 Pictures - Local South Puget Sound and I chose 10 photos and uploaded them to my album.  You also can give a general description of your trip at this time if you like.
    • 6.      Now upload up to 10 of your best pictures of this year’s adventures with the Upload photos tab.  You can upload up to 5 pictures at a time.  This can take a few minutes…
    • 7.      You can then assign a caption to the photo.  Click on the photo within the photo album and then click on Add caption tab.  In the field that appears, enter the caption and then click save.  

    I hope this process goes well for you and you enjoy sharing your summer with others.  Let me know if you have problems and I will try and help you work through them and let me know when you have added an album so I can download your pictures and add them to the slide show.   

    Thanks and safe cruising!

    Julie Lund

    The quality of the thumbnail photos used in this website are not suitable for print, so we are asking members to create a photo album specifically for your membership photo.   Jan explains this process in the General Form

    As we depart USSC for home I just want to say what a GREAT group of people we have. Brad kept us organized and on track and thanks to his foresight, dry under the tents. Meals were delicious and the speakers were entertaining. We hope to welcome more than 40 boats next September in Anacortes!
