February has been brutal, unless you like cold weather! However, boating season will be here before you realize it. Applications for junior sailing are now available. Please take advantage of the member discount by signing up before it is open to non-members.
Our board meetings are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:30 pm at the club. The meetings are open to the membership. Please feel free to attend.
We have several work days scheduled in April to make sure the boats are ship shape, the grounds are presentable and the winter dust is knocked off the clubhouse. Please plan to attend. Not only do many hands make for quick work, you will have an opportunity to shake off some cabin fever, catch up with friends and meet new ones.
Great news! 5 new applications for membership have been approved! Welcome Eric Anderson & Alexis Hayes, Collin Krevonick & Jordan Huskey, Jon & Diane Lucy, Laurence & Mary Beth Mayer, and Bruce & Martha Soles.
Please keep in mind our membership drive. We have temporarily waived the initiation fee and member sponsor requirement on the application. We all know someone who would enjoy the benefits our club has to offer. My challenge to each member is to extend the invitation to join and then be their mentor until they reach a comfort level.
Your board has come up with some interesting ideas to promote the club and generate member involvement. Just two of the ideas are to sponsor a fishing day for disabled veterans and to have a Tiki hut function to include food, beverage, and music. These ideas, and others, will need your help to make them possible. Stay tuned there is more to come. Before you know it we will be kicking off boating season with our traditional flag raising ceremony. I hope the ice melts by then.
