2021 November Commodore’s Column: “Volunteers = Fun Cruises & Events”

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Helen Keller

Participants showed a great deal of enthusiasm at the recent 2022 Event & Cruise Planning Session led by Fleet Captain Alice Tibbals.  Whether you enjoy shorter cruises or longer cruises, destinations north or south, east or west, there is something for you.  We are also putting clubhouse and other events back on the calendar.  Some indoor events may need to be tweaked to accommodate Covid mandates, but we’re going to give it our best, while staying healthy too.

These cruises and events will not happen without captains and co-captains, so please consider volunteering. There are still details to be worked out on some of the longer flex cruises, so jump in and be part of that planning.  Contact Fleet Captain Alice to help with cruises, and Commodore Debbie for events.  The captains for cruises need to be filled right away so reservations can be made at marinas to accommodate PTYC cruisers.  You’ll find the 2022 lineup in the following pages to see where help is still needed.  Let’s make these events and cruises happen by volunteering!

  • Benefits of volunteering:
  • Make new friends
  • Support your fellow PTYC club members
  • Builds camaraderie
  • Make a difference
  • Builds a sense of achievement
  • Provides a sense of purpose
  • Stay mentally and physically active

Have fun!

I see a fun-filled year ahead for PTYC.

Commodore Debbie
