Right now it looks like we have around 20 folks coming to the first ever Boat Buzz Un Plugged Event – And possibly more that are from around here who have yet to speak up..In less that 11 days we’ll be meeting at the Trible Library on the campus of Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA to get a hands-on(ish) tour of the Chris-Craft Archival Collection. It’s a significant part of The Mariners’ Museum Library Collections that are housed in the University Library not far from the Museum.
Along with Patti Henson and her staff of volunteers at the Chris-Craft Collection we’ll meet Cassandra Greene, Interim President of The Mariners’ Museum and Mary Sellen, Library Chief Archivist for The Mariners’ Museum. To say the least they are very excited about our visit.
We need a final list of participants. If you plan to be there please let John Rothert know ASAP, if you haven’t already done so. His email is [email protected]
We look forward to seeing everyone,
Al Benton, John Rothert, and Me, or is it I? Or is it I only if we start the conversation from us? Oh god, this is a slippery slope… Wait, this is a library event.. Books and word things are in a library. OH GOD!
