This is Commodore's May Blog Number Two - the sequel . . .
July Cruise-out Cancelled: My previous May blog showed Little Venice Island as our 4th of July cruise-out. This event was cancelled due to a wedding on the island. While this is disappointing, things usually work out for the best. There is no club-sponsored event in July. Have fun at Mandeville, Stockton, on the docks, or where ever you decide to go!
General Meeting information so that you can plan ahead: We are partnering again with Driftwood Yacht Club. From September through December, we have booked one Friday event per month. We have agreed to have dinner at Driftwood YC and the bar will be open for us. In exchange, there is no rental fee and we can use the facility as if it is our own club.
So we are taking advantage of Driftwood's great facilities. Our General Regular Annual Meeting and Change of Watch Meeting will occur on FRIDAYS this year. I want to give you plenty of time to plan ahead if you need to take some time off. I am hoping that the change from Saturday afternoon to Friday early evening will cause you minimal inconvenience.
October General Regular Annual Meeting/Elections - Friday, October 19, 2012
Change of Watch/Holiday Party - Friday, December 7, 2012
Speaking of Elections: Staff Commodore Kim Sechler has been tasked with early recruitment of a slate of officers for 2013 so that we have elections on-time in October. Contact Kim if you would like to help her on the nominating committee. And please offer to serve on your club's Board in 2013. We need YOU to keep our club alive and vibrant.
Additional Event: We have an opportunity to support Make-A-Wish by participating in Driftwood YC's bingo fundraiser on June 16, 2012. I will e-mail specific information to you in the next week or so. One of the Board goals this year is to continue with our community service efforts. We will support Make-A-Wish by participating with Driftwood YC and will donate to BIMAC in December.
