Mexico Rendezvous

Puerto Vallarta
Feb 14-21

Rich and Claire Miller won the Grand prize at the 2004 Catalina Rendezvous in Baltimore. The prize is a week's stay at Frank Butler's condo in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Rich and Claire graciously offered to let other members in the club join them and after a drawing, Gerry and Jeanne Helldorfer, Don and Mary Ann McBride, and Mike and Bev Davis went along for the fun.
