Greetings! It is hard to believe how quickly summer is passing us by. I hope everyone has been taking advantage of the beautiful weather and has found a little time to spend out on the water.
In sailing news, the Junior Sailing Camps' first session has begun at WRYC. Please contact Clayton James if you are interested in signing up your children or grandchildren to participate in this great program; we have two sessions remaining and a few spots to fill!
The BOD has received a request from the Coast Guard to place a weather station at the end of the club pier. At our July 11th meeting, a Coast Guard representative will explain in more detail what they are proposing to install. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. and is open to all WRYC members who wish to attend.
In other board news, Cleve Corlett and new member Joel Morgan are working together to update the club's website. They have asked the BOD for a list of any new functionalities we want to add to the current site. Please reach out to one of the BOD members or me if you have any suggestions for improving the website.
Building and Grounds chairs will oversee getting a few repairs and cleaning done to the apartment to prepare for the next tenant. Shannon French has been working with a potential tenant that is ready to move in once the work has been completed.
The plans and preparations are coming together for the 3rd annual Anchor on the Ware, which is scheduled for the 26th of August. Committee members Layne Brown, Brownie Bartley, Sharon McGlohn, and I have met several times in the last month preparing the final details. Tickets will be on sale next week! We are looking for additional volunteers to help out with this event. If you are available, please give one of the committee members a call to offer your assistance.
In closing, I hope to see everyone on July 1st at the Independence Day Social. The festivities are going to be a BLAST!
