2012 General Events


Salem, MA
November 2-4, 2012


Details and the registration form information coming soon.

Mark your calendars!

Most of you probably know Salem as the site of the infamous witch trials of the 1640s, and Salem capitalizes on this history with a touristy binge around Halloween, as well as a Witch Museum and other campy attractions. But the witch trials actually took place in Old Salem Village, now known as Danvers.

Salem city itself has a long and proud history as a thriving seaport. The narrow streets of the old town are crowded with historic homes and old warehouses and counting houses. It was also the home of Nathaniel Hawthorne, who wrote his famous “House of the Seven Gables” while serving as customs officer for the port. The house is open for visits – and it’s well worth the trip.

Another famous Salem sight is the Peabody-Essex Museum, which has a world-renowned collection of ship models, figureheads and nautical memorabilia, as well as a fascinating Chinese merchant’s house, which was carried piece-by-piece from China and painstakingly reassembled in the museum.

CDSOA members will stay at the Clipper Ship Inn (978-745-8022).
Open rates at this motel, located an easy walk from the historic downtown, start at $95/night. A package deal is pending for CDSOA members.

Meeting Venue:
On Saturday, November 3, CSOA members and their guests will assemble at the Salem Beer Works restaurant, on the waterfront, for a menu including a choice of beer-basted steak tips, malted salmon, stuffed chicken breast or vegetarian stir-fry, preceded salad and appetizer, for $26 a person. Refreshments will be served at a cash bar.

Final arrangements are underway, and a reservation form will be posted before Sept. 15

-Fair Winds,
Bill Slater
