Since the election your new Board has been working towards meeting the goals we set for ourselves and will continue to work through the summer so that we’ll be ready to begin our new season when we officially open on November 2. We have an Audit Committee in place, our Membership Chair Charlotte is working on some great ideas for next year, Dick and Andy are working on the BBR publicity and other fun “on the water” activities, Diane and her committee have developed some fun activities for next season, Dee and I are working on other projects and ideas we have for the club and Mario is working on an Accounting Manual. We hope to have much information to share at our first Monthy Membership Meeting in November.
As the season winds down I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and fun summer. Most of our members are now at their “other” home and I hope you are enjoying your families and friends at lakes, rivers, BBQs, backyard get-togethers, or where ever and however you spend your summer. For those members who live here in sunny warm Mexico enjoy the quiet time of year. If you are here in Mexico this summer (either living or vacationing) I encourage you to visit the club as often as you can – the staff gets really bored when most of us leave!
Also remember OptiNam (the Optimist North American Championship) is being held at VYC July 9 thru 16thand if you can make it back down here to volunteer to help out it would be much appreciated. Contact Linda Green for additional information on this multi-country Regatta. If you are already here please consider volunteering to help make this event the success that all of our other Regattas have been.
Happy Summer to Everyone – I’ll see you in November.
