Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWell 2016 is here, and with it comes VERY BIG changes for the Ware River Yacht Club and its members. As I'm sure everyone is aware by now, longtime Club Manager Cheryl Davis advised the BOD of her desire to retire by October of LAST year. While the BOD interviewed several candidates, we have been unable to find a suitable person to take on the position at the compensation our club is able to afford. Simply stated, Cheryl put her heart and soul into the day to day operation of the club thus ensuring its continued ability to financially sustain itself through rentals and other functions. Cheryl graciously stayed on past October and through January, but we cannot expect her to continue to do so. The passion Cheryl brought to the position is going to be sorely missed by all!

That said, ALL CLUB MEMBERS will need to reassert an "ownership" role in the club if we are to have a successful year and remain financially vibrant. Whereas previously Cheryl as Club Manager attended to the day to day operation of the club, ensured sufficient supplies were on hand for events, served as our rental agent for the club, coordinated use of the building by all committees and events, and took care of the finances, this year, unless we can find a new manager, the BOD members will be "hands on" assuming responsibility for the respective functions falling within their committee assignments. To that end, Board members cannot do it all themselves. They will need your help as active committee members, so I am asking that each member take an interest and contact the appropriate BOD member to offer to help out.

BOD member's areas of responsibilities for 2016 are as follows: Treasurer Shannon French will be responsible for payment of bills and depositing income; Bruce Soles as Secretary will be recording meeting minutes and handling club correspondence; Gilbert Birdsall will remain Chairman of Buildings and Grounds Committee; Nancy Goodall will continue to chair the Membership Committee; Brownie and Ted Bartley will jointly chair the Social Committee; Joe Morgan will remain as Fleet Captain, and non board member Clayton James will chair the Governor's Cup and Jr. Sailing Committees. Keith Barrack will serve as Vice Commodore. STILL NEEDED IS A CHAIR FOR THE HOUSE COMMITTEE and A RENTAL AGENT.

PLEASE take a look at these committees and think about where YOU can fit in and contribute. Give the appropriate committee chair a call and offer to help them so that our club will have a successful year.

In closing, the Board of Directors will be meeting the first Tuesday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are open to all members, and I invite anyone who wishes to attend.
