by Dave McGuire In the Commodore’s Comments in July’s The National, Henry Persig wrote about the refurbishment of Crystal Palace. There has been a lot of effort put in by Henry, Mike Kantor, John Kitchener and others to get her ready to sail again. On Thursday, July 15th, John and Joni Kitchener invited members to a coming out party of sorts, to show off all the work. Not one for missing out on free beer and munchies, I made sure that I was there early. A dozen or so people dropped by for a drink, some conversation and to admire the handiwork. Thanks to John and Joni for providing the snacks.
