2021 Draft Schedule Released
Register with the Northwest Kadey Krogen Owner’s Group (NWKKOG) for the rendezvous as soon as possible so we can get a good count for planning. With a single application, you will be registering for both the rendezvous and a slip assignment. On arrival, go to marina office to pay for moorage.
Boaters who register after September 4, 2021, must request a slip assignment through Cap Sante Marina and risk not receiving a slip in the block reserved for the rendezvous, or perhaps not getting a slip at all if the marina is full. (A slip for a KK42 costs about $85/night)
Sept 20, noon, through Sept 24, noon, have been reserved for the rendezvous. If you want to arrive earlier or stay later, request the extra days directly with the marina.

RE: Postponement of NWKKOG Rendezvous scheduled for September 21-25, 2020 until September 2021
Dear Fellow NWKKOG Members,
The Executive Committee met today to discuss and finalize plans for the 2020 Fall Rendezvous. Out of an abundance of caution, we have unanimously decided to postpone the 2020 event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It simply makes no sense to bring together the membership in close quarters until the pandemic is brought under control, and it is once again safe for us to socialize as we have in the past. Additionally uncertainty regarding the opening of the US/Canadian border further complicates matters for some of our membership.
The NWKKOG Executive Committee (Brad Popovich, Ginger Marshall, Julie Lund, Sean Kelly, Jan Chapman and Neal Parker)
