Bruce, Since you are organizing the rendezvous, you should set the date that is convenient with your plans and schedule. The boats owners need to adjust their schedules around your choice.
If someone cannot make it, then they can organize it next year whenever and wherever they want to hold it. That has always been the policy regarding rendezvous.
I'll be there, hopefully.
Thanks for the details Bruce. I've posted your event here.
