October Commodore Column

It is amazing how time flies here in the Great Northwest. We just returned from a great South Sound cruise and were blessed with great weather the whole way.  Thank you Sidle’s and Bloemker’s for all your work in planning and shepherding this cruise.

Thanks go out to our September watch Crew headed by Chelcie and Kathy Liu with help from Fred and Ilona Bell and Stephanie Oliveira, Houlton Madinger and Craig Kurath  I really enjoyed Chelcie’s program on wooden boat building.  One of the biggest things that I learned was that all wooden boat technology was not developed over 50 years ago. Thanks Chelcie for cluing me in.

Thanks are also in order to Jim Quandt for all his work in keeping the Club House in tip top shape.

There is only one cruise this October, the Chili Cook-off on weekend of Oct 13.  Since you can either drive or boat to Mystery Bay, I would hope that over 50% of our members will attend.  SEE YOU THERE.

By this time you should have received Rick’s email about the nominating committee wanting you to step up to fill in one of our leadership positions.  Please give this serious consideration because you will be working with some wonderful people in our club.

Vince Verneuil, Commodore
