    Join us for a night of
    good cheer and great food.

    Since 2013 the annual SCOO Steak-out has been held on the navigable and well-protected Gideon Creek during the month of May. Whether you come by boat or by car, you are guaranteed the perfect steak.  This “Perfect Ribeye Steak Guarantee” is a sure thing because you cook it yourself!

    Our supplier of the steaks ensures that each ribeye has just the right amount of marbling to give you a flavorful steak that is second to none.

    This event is potluck; bring a favorite salad, vegetable, or dessert to share, as well as your own steak knife and tableware. Feel free to bring your own beverage. Bottled water will be provided.

    Traditionally, happy hour begins at 4:30 and dinner at 5:30 PM. If you arrive by boat, call Charles at 919-920-1355 for a dock assignment and/or shuttle service any time for assistance.  If you wish to spend the night on your boat, let us know and we will provide breakfast for you the following morning.

    Looking forward to seeing you.

    • Albemarle Loop Cruise

    SCOO 2024 Albemarle Loop Cruise

    Due to limited dock space, registration will close at 16 total boats, so please register early.

    We have already reached our boat limit but will accept registrations for a Wait List at this time.

    Be sure to join us for our long cruise this spring to the Albemarle Loop!  We had a great time visiting our neighboring NC small towns along the Albemarle Sound a few years back, and have had many requests for an encore.

    We plan to leave Oriental on Friday, May 24, and spend the first night at Dowry Creek Marina near Belhaven.  From there we’ll travel up the Alligator River for a quick night at Alligator River Marina, or anchor nearby if preferred.

    Our planned stops on the Albemarle Sound include Columbia, Albemarle Plantation, and Edenton, all of which provide free 48 hr. dockage to boaters traveling the Loop.  Then we’ll sail on to Manteo, on historic Roanoke Island, always a highlight of the trip. The docks are reserved through Dockwa internet site.  There is a lovely town gazebo for social gatherings and many other town activities and restaurants, with details to follow as participants sign up on the website, a separate email will contain the schedule details and social events.

    Come prepared for beautiful scenery, wildlife, history, golfing at the Albemarle Plantation, shopping, dining, and happy hour!  We also suggest bringing bicycles if possible to explore these towns. Especially at the Plantation which has miles of roads to explore with a free swimming pool and low cost golf course. The golf course is a difficult course, but we threw our clubs in the boat, got an included golf cart and had a great time.  The Albemarle Plantation Sailing Club offered us their clubhouse to play games and has an air conditioned room to enjoy. We even had members that were able to race with the Club.

    We anticipate about 2 weeks, plus or minus a few days, depending on weather and destinations.  More details to come as we make arrangements at each stop.

    It will be a great time, hope you can join us!
