Commodore's Comments

commodore flagSpring officially arrived at 6:45 pm Friday, March 20th. Boating weather is on the horizon, and it is time to get the fleet along with the buildings and grounds ship shape. Your club work days give us all an opportunity to catch up with old friends and to make new ones. They also allow us to bring our particular skills into play as we prepare the fleet and the building for the summer festivities. Plan on being at the work days.

Our Membership Drive is off to a great start! The board approved 3 new members in March (8 new members in the past two meetings) and we are aware of one more that will be submitted before the next meeting. Our work is not finished! My challenge is for every member to bring in a new member this year. The waiver of the initiation fee and endorsements, and the opportunity to have access to a fantastic facility and meet wonderful people are incentives. Share your good fortune with a friend, bring them into the club!

Fleet Captain Joe Morgan has inspected the 26' Paceship and has made some inexpensive recommendations to bring the vessel up to Coast Guard standards for club member use. This is a phenomenal asset for all members who want to learn to sail. Also, once a member proves that he/she has the skill to operate the vessel, it is available for member use for day trips as well as weekends. Please take advantage of this opportunity.

Harsh weather has taken its toll. A heat pump motor had to be replaced, and we also believe we have a broken water pipe as our water consumption has been unusually high. Wet ground has hampered the efforts to find the leak. However, Gilbert Birdsall has not given up and will find the cause.

The club is looking into sponsoring a Take a Vet Fishing function. Your board believes this is a small token of appreciation for those who have given so much. Bill Tunner is chairing this very worthwhile event. 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.

There are other ideas and social considerations in the works. Stay tuned.

Jay McGlohn, Commodore
