Commodore's Comments

commodore flagSummer 2017 has been extremely hot! I hope Mother Nature will bless us with some cooler weather soon. We had a wonderful turnout for the Independence Day Social. A big Thank You goes out to Pat and Cordon Davis, Julie Stone, and Robert Johnson for hosting the event. I must say, the hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages prepared on the grill were delicious. After the sun went down, Bruce Soles, Craig Klien, and I ventured out to the swim platform to set off fireworks. I am happy to report that we all returned safely to the club unscathed. I hope everyone enjoyed the entertainment!

At the last BOD meeting, the board approved the USGS to install a tide gage on the dock. The gage should be installed in the next few months after we finalize a few details. That said, the club will not have to contribute any money or have any responsibilities associated with the new tide gage. Once the gage is up and running, anyone can go on the USGS website to receive precise information about the Ware River tides.

The 53rd Annual Governor's Cup is approaching very quickly. This annual event will be held on the 5th & 6th of August. If you are available to help with this event, please contact Clayton James.

August is a very busy month at WRYC. In addition to the Governor's Cup, we have the Anchor on the Ware event and Labor Day Social. Be sure to mark your calendars for the Anchor on the Ware event on Saturday, August 26th from 3:00 – 8:00 pm. This year's event will feature three local bands, great food, craft beers, Short Lane Ice Cream, and activities for all ages. Please contact Layne Brown if you are interested in helping with this event. I encourage members and guests to come out to enjoy a fun filled afternoon on the river. I hope to see everyone at all the exciting events planned in August!
