Information concerniing this last weekend and upcoming events. I want to thank all who made the first race of the season and also the banquet. I think fun was had by one and all on the water and I know we had a good time eating and talking at the banquet. I was formally elected as the commodore and Cheryl Locke was elected as the Vice Commodore for this year. Lou Roper has agreed to be our secretary, Pat Tyler our treasurer, Richard our fleet captain, jeff Defalco will be in charge of our PHRFF ratings and final race results using PHRFF and last but not least Scott Carle our new webmaster.
I want to thank all for volunteering to fill these positions and giving us their time. I also want to implore each of you to think about when you can do committee for a race, even if you are not a boat owner or just crew you can do committee. Let’s try to get the committee boat and buoys out as many times as possible this year. I think havin buoys out makes for a better race!
Also, I need to insure that all are aware of the Bald Head Island Regatta which will be held April 19-22, 2007. I know we have a race scheduled for that weekend but I would like to encourage anyone wanting to go race to please do so. I know we have had boats go up in the past and all have said they had a great time. When I was doing the schedule unfortunately this information was not available and I scheduled a race for us that weekend, but please feel free to go race with another club and have a wonderful experience.
There are some other things that I want to discuss with all of you but will do so at another date. If you did not make it to this first race you missed an excellent day on the ocean, whether you are a die hard racer or someone that goes out just for the sake of going out and enjoying the camaraderie.
I hope to see everyone at the next race that I can attend, I will not be at the next race as that is a Saturday I have to work.
Thanks to all for their time, camaraderie and friendship.
Commodore, (aka Duchess of the Deep, Planetary Commander)
