The location is apt; boat club members have argued that the city of Alexandria intends to seize their property by eminent domain in order to redevelop the Potomac River waterfront. The city denies this, but the city attorney did mention that possibility in the past.

The event, at the ODBC clubhouse the foot of King Street, starts at 6:30 p.m.
