Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWhat a wonderful Flag Raising and Kentucky Derby Party to kick off the 2016 Sailing Season! A big thank you to Hollye & Joe Morgan and Debby & Cleve Corlett for hosting this fun and well attended event! Looking around the clubhouse, I thought that we were possibly bumping up against the occupancy limit of the clubhouse. The weather was near perfect – neither chilly nor too hot, with a light breeze and, most importantly, no rain! Once again, a most delicious meal was served by caterer Brian Marshall who ensured there was plenty of food for all. I was quite pleased, and I know that the hosts and hostesses were very thankful that the membership took to heart my declaration that "with a few exceptions, your mother isn't present so please clean up your table after yourself before you leave!" Accordingly, I want to thank everyone for doing just that which really does make things easier for our MEMBER hosts and hostesses.

As I am writing, I realize that by time you read this, the Memorial Day festivities will be behind us and hopefully the weather cooperated and everyone will have "policed up" after themselves to make cleanup easier on our host and hostess Cordon and Angela Davis. Thank you Cordon and Angela! This event was to be co-hosted with Zach and Melissa Smith; however, Zach and Melissa are unable to continue to actively participate with the club at present. On that subject, we are looking for a House Committee Chairperson, so if you are interested in taking on a more active role in club activities, please let me or one of the other members of the Board know.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our current Board Members for their diligence and dedication this year! At the suggestion of Gilbert Birdsall, we explored the idea of establishing a "Standing Committee" comprised of longstanding members to provide "historical perspective" to the Board. I am pleased to report that the following former Commodores have agreed to be available to us to provide "wise counsel" as needed: Billy Fenstermacher, Jay McGlohn, Sue Perrin, John Singleton and Kearfort Stone.

In other Board activities, we have increased the clubhouse rental security deposit to $500.00 for NON-member rentals. To prevent damage to the clubhouse carpet and floors, we reiterated that kegs of beer may not be placed inside the clubhouse. Kegs must stay outside on the deck or the screened porch. As stated in previous Telltale editions, the Board meets at 6:30 pm on the first Tuesday of the month and all members are welcome to attend. Thus far, our meetings have been short and we have been able to wrap things up before 9:30 pm.

In closing, please join me in welcoming new club members Jeff & Mary-Lewis Wine who reside in Ware Neck!
