Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWe had a very successful workday on Saturday April 17th. Windows and the interior of the building were cleaned and the first aid kit restocked. The shrubs around the building were pruned and flower beds mulched. The tennis courts were blown off and the damaged swing set is in the process of being repaired. Gilbert Birdsall coordinated the effort and at the end of the day his "to do" list was complete. Thanks to all that contributed their time and efforts. My comments were prepared for the Telltale prior to the boat work day but I am confident that the turn out was very good.

Our membership drive is off to a great start! The board has approved three new members in April, adding 11 in the past three meetings. I must say that many of our new members have already become enthusiastic active contributing members. It was a pleasure to meet and be with some of them at the workday, and witness them become active while developing new friendships. My challenge is for every member to share your good fortune and bring in a new member this year and to give them an opportunity to socialize and form new friendships.

Fleet Captain Joe Morgan has developed a syllabus for an adult sailing class. He has spent a lot of time developing this course to certify club members to be able to use the 26" Paceship sailboat. This is a great asset for any and all members who want to learn to sail. See his article for more details.

Social chairman Melissa Wincher is looking for sponsors for the July 4th and Memorial Day socials. Give her a call and volunteer to sponsor one.

Junior sailing applications are coming in and if you have anyone interested, the application is available on the website. In an effort to promote Junior Sailing the WRYC set up a display during the Daffodil Festival in front of Gloucester Southside Insurance Agency. Suzanne Hudson, Robin Troutman, Eva Mullins, Margi Teagle, and Sharon McGlohn manned the booth and handed out brochures that Cheryl Davis and Bob Quinzel developed. Pictured above is Suzanne Hudson, with the club display.

Bill Tunner is chairing a very noble and worthwhile event. The board is asking the membership to get behind a Take a Vet Fishing function. He has gathered quite a lot of information from organizations that do similar type events. However he will need some help. We all know someone that has served our country and sacrificed something in doing so. Anyone interested in helping please give him a call. This is a fantastic opportunity for the entire club to come together and make this a day for those vets to remember.
