The New Years festivities have come and gone. I hope your holidays were safe and fun. Winter has been kind to us so far. As I write this I am listening to a thunder storm in the middle of January, not our usual snow storm.
As we move into 2012 there are many things to keep in mind for the upcoming sailing season. By now you should have received your membership packet. Please be sure to send in your application with either the deposit or the full amount of your 2012 dues. If you haven’t received your packet or you have membership questions please contact our Assistant Treasurer, Doug McCall, who will be happy to help you out (with the application, that is).
The annual winter membership meeting is quickly approaching. It will take place on Saturday, March 3 from noon to 3:00 p.m. at Shawnee Civic Center (the same location as last year). As always we’ll share in a potluck meal at noon so please be sure to bring your favorite covered dish to share. PYC will provide the beverages. The actual membership meeting starts at 1:00 p.m. I hope to see you there.
Before you know it Spring will be here and it will be time for club opening (mark your calendar for Saturday, April 14). That’s when the fun begins! In the meantime, if you have a boat in the water be sure to go out to the club and check on it occasionally. Even in a mild winter you never know what the wind and waves will do to the dock lines securing your boat.
I look forward to seeing you at the membership meeting on March 3, at the club on April 14, and then (not soon enough) on the water this season.
