Calendar for your Website


Welcome to the IOBG District 7 website.  We are pleased to present this site for the convenience of members and friends.  We will be using this site to keep our members informed about issues of importance to District 7 and the International.

All suggestions for site improvement will be appreciated.

District 7 has many events planned to the West, East and South to involve our existing members and to recruit new ones.  The geographical area that District 7 represents is much larger than our present clubs indicate.  It is our goal to reach out to new clubs to expand our ranks and strengthen our District.

IOBG District 7 is proud to be one of the largest Districts in the International Order of the Blue Gavel.

IOBG 2014 Annual Convention & Ball Fundraiser


The International Order of the Blue Gavel will hold its Annual Convention Meeting and Ball in Cleveland, OH during October 2014.
P/C Joel Kay of Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland will be sworn in as the International President.

District 7 has committed to Joel and his Lady Nancy to provide substantial financial support to host the event.
Further to this effort we have put together a fundraiser raffle of a large, brand-new cooler full of premium spirits (about 30 bottles). We figure the prize value at $700+.
Raffle tickets are being sold at $5 each. The winner will be drawn at the IOBG Cocktail Party during the GCBA Rendezvous June 21, 2014.

This is a good fundraiser for a great cause that keeps Cleveland on the map as a hub of yachting in the USA.
District 7 stretches from the Lake Erie islands to parts of PA and down to the Ohio river.
District 7 has more members than any other district in the WORLD!
