The Marco Cruise Club recently took a trip southward to Marathon Key for three nights of spring fun and fishing.

Eight boats made the journey from Marco Island to Marathon, berthing at Faro Blanco Yacht Club & Resort for three nights.

The group, which consisted of 38 MCC members and their family members, included a poolside welcome reception at the Marriott Courtyard, mixing cocktails with a bit of fun in the form of game such as musical chairs, MCC member Rosemary Harty was fastest in the game: “I hadn’t played musical chairs since I was a kid,” she said with a laugh.

Other social events including a quiz game, dice game and a few Jello shots made for a festive time, but the highlight of the trip was a fishing competition organized by Judy Lange. MCC Commodore Todd Whitney took the prize with a 54” Amberjack, followed by Lisa Raymer with a 41” Amberjack. Brenda and Gary Papszycki won the prize for most fish caught – they couple netted 50 fish total. “Not a bad haul for a quick trip,” said Whitney.   Terry and Lisa Raymer hosts for the trip are planning more events now that the COVID vaccinations have become widespread.
