Commodore's Comments

commodore flagOctober is gone and the Oyster Roast is right around the corner. Please place November 14th (Oyster Roast) and December 13th (Christmas party) on your calendars. These are two really nice opportunities to see friends (make new ones) and eat well. Thanks to some rather high tides and bad weather the Oktoberfest social was cancelled. Some diehards still planned to have a potluck gathering at the club, but even that was cancelled due to high water across Ware Point Road. It is good to know that weather does not dampen the desire to socialize at the WRYC.

The Board has agreed to move $10,000 from the operating budget into the depreciation fund in anticipation of future repair and/or capital improvement expenses. This is an ongoing effort to set aside a rainy day fund.

Fleet Captain Joe Morgan and his crew have made a trip to Annapolis to bring a very nice donation to the WRYC. See his comments in the November Telltale on this website.

Our membership drive has been very successful this year. As you know we have waived the initiation fee. However, the board will be making a decision soon to determine if the fee will continue to be waived. If you know of anyone who has expressed an interest in joining, please let them know this window of opportunity will not stay open very much longer.

As most of you know, the Board of Directors is made up of 12 members. Their three year terms are staggered so four rotate off each year. If you are interested in serving on the board or have questions about board involvement, please feel free to contact me at 804-694-0694. If you are asked to serve, please consider doing so. If you are new to the club, it is a great way to meet members and learn the operation of the club. I must say that the current board has been a pleasure to work with. We have a range of new members to ancient mariners who have jumped right in and made this a really good year. The best part of all is that it has been fun.

Congratulations to Zach and Melissa (nee Wincher) Smith who had their wedding at the club in October. They became members when they rented the club a year ago, and Melissa is already on the Board and is our Social Chair. We wish them a long and happy life together.

Fun and fellowship! See you at the Oyster Roast!
