Easing out of our summer respite began with our September member meeting at the Clubhouse, highlighted by the annual pre-meeting soup and salad potluck. As usual, food was plentiful, and it was great to see so many folks back enjoying food, drink, and friendship. We did ask members and guests to sign in before the meeting for contact tracing should someone end up testing positive for Covid. A day or two after the meeting, this did occur, and we put the contact tracing list to good use. I suspect that this will be an inevitable fact of life for the foreseeable future. However, with the availability of vaccines, most members have not objected to the in-person meetings, and many were appreciative of being alerted to the exposure.
October is going to be a big month for our Club. It begins with our second, Shared Boating Experience Seminar on Saturday morning, October 8, which will focus on “Planning for a Boat Trip.” Our October 11 member meeting will feature a roll out of the club’s new website platform and the many features it will bring to our online capabilities. Our speaker will be PTYC Member Lisa Brandes, who has been leading a team of members to migrate our existing website information to this new platform.
Since this topic will be the featured presentation, there should be adequate time to see how this website will function and address questions you may have. Additionally, the slate of Officers and Board for 2023 will be announced at this meeting, with elections to be held at our November meeting.
