Greetings from your Commodore!

Hopefully everyone has enjoyed the wonderful fall weather Mother Nature has offered to us this October.

Unfortunately, there were no club socials to report on in the month of October. The Oktoberfest that was scheduled for Oct. 21st had to be canceled due to the lack of RSVP’s and health issues with one of the Hosts.

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Annual Oyster Roast on Saturday, November 11th at 5p.m. This event always draws a large crowd and is thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in attendance!

Our next Board of Directors meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 7th at 6:30 p.m. At the meeting, the board will be preparing the budget for 2018 and discussing some possible changes presented by our new manager Layne Brown which aim make the club run more efficiently. All club members are more than welcome to attend.

In other board news, Buildings and Grounds Chairmen Craig Klein and David Brown are working with a local contractor to schedule replacing part of the rotten decking in the next few months. This work was originally planned to be completed this summer but was hard to fit in between rentals and club socials.

Our Annual Meeting is right around the corner, and we still need three members to be nominated to serve on the Board of Directors for a three- year term. Please contact me or any board member if you are willing to be a part of the leadership team at the WRYC.
