The Season Opener Messabout will be held at Orchard Point County Park, on the north end of Fern Ridge Reservoir, northwest of Eugene. We'll meet about 11:00 AM Saturday near the boat ramp. There may be an area to beach our boats south of the marina. Bring lunch. There is no camping at Orchard Point.
