    JRBF – Spring Meeting @ Tavern on the James
    May 3 @ 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
    I hope everyone’s made plans to be at the JRBF Spring Meeting, Sunday May 3rd, 1:00PM upstairs at the Tavern in Scottsville.  They’ll be prepared to serve us lunch upstairs if we arrive early perhaps around 11:00AM.
     
    Given that this will be my final spring meeting as chairman I’m really hoping for a good show. We have 5 new boats this year, 3 of which are completely new programs.  I’d also like to share (briefly!!!!) some of my batteau related convictions after I believe 15 years as chairman of the festival.  Although we’ve survived and thrived for 30 years, that is no guarantee that this will continue and we need to avoid the types of situations which have threatened our existance in the past.
     
    And of course as always we need to communicate some of the specifics of the festival for 2015 and the more people that attend the meeting, the better chance of avoiding situations which cause problems for all of us.
     
    So please put it on your calendar and plan to spend the afternoon of May 3rd with your kayak, canoe, and batteau friends from the JRBF.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Ralph

                          Thanks, also paddle a canoe or kayak near Charlottesville and join the batteaux on the river. Visit http://howardsvillecanoe.com for rental and shuttle options from the Howardsville area which is just south of Charlottesville.
