Welcome to 2019! On the Day of Resolutions I resolved to sail more this year. This resolution will be much easier to accomplish than the other resolution I made. And I will start by attending a fleet party. But which one? The Santana 20 Fleet and the Thistle Fleet both have parties on January 12. The Tunas are at EYC and the Thistles are at the Boyce home in Corvallis. And the Lido Fleet is doing their winter party on February 10 at the Schroeders. Fleet members, crew, and interested sailors are invited to attend whichever meeting is appropriate. What a fun way to start the year!
The Work Party season is back. Work party dates are January 19, February 16, March 23 and so on. Work parties happen on the Saturday before the Saturday that the potluck is on, which is (usually) the last Saturday of the month. Please come and help out. There are a couple of big dock projects that Paul Stephens is working on and Port Commissioners Marji Clune and Bob Pritchard have a long list of shore-side things to do.
The annual Chili Feed is on January 26 at the Clubhouse. This is the potluck where all you have to bring is your appetite. The Board brings chili with all the fixin’s and even the bowls and spoons! And a reminder that the time has been moved up a half hour: food at 6:00 pm and the General Membership Meeting at 7:00 pm for this event and also for all future potlucks.
