Google is truly an amazing service.
Dan Beardsley. I was a Camper-CIT-Counselor from 1979-1986. Windward, N, P, Chateau, Leeward, P, Leeward, Q. Reading through the discussion thread brings back many many memories. Those summers on the Cape were some of the best I have ever had.
There were many names I remembered: Ivan Wasserman, Jon Duskin, Greg Schwartz, Todd Schroeder, Charlie Shimberg, Mark Kraft, Dan Beardsley, Billy Ortner, Eric Orda (Kochendorfer), Sebastian Fornier Inigo Fernandez, David Slade, Mike Cohen, Will Minton, Beeker, Nicolas Fournier, Adam Marsh, Field Ogden, Ty Schlobohm, Shuey Hosoi, Dan Shrag, Micah Zimmerman, Beaver Taylor, Steve Monowitz, Drew Levine, Matt Saurage, Peter Levine, Dave Noble, Kieth Schroeder, Jeff Horner, Andy Seibert, Greg Zlotnic, John Heron, the Haddads, and of course Art Farnham.
I still have many of my pennants and the patches (archery & riflery). I too hope that the dining hall has some of that “stuff.” If you look at the satellite pictures on the internet, it looks like one of the houses was built into the old dining hall building.
Who remembers the geniuses who tried to sail to Avalon in the Day Sailor one afternoon in 1983 and broke the centerboard trying to tack into that little bay where the girls kept their boats? (I was one)
I think that one of the posts indicated that Art Farnham still lives up on Pilgrim Lake. He was an outstanding role model and mentor. I have two sons that I would have loved to send to Namequoit. On top of the sailing, racing and other activities the camaraderie is something that will stay with me forever.
It would be great to establish contact again. Send an me eMail if you have a chance ([email protected]
