Commodore's Comments


Winter Greetings Sylvan Sailors… from the Commodore!


Winter on the prairies…Holiday get togethers, Southern resorts, or just hunkered down, Spring will come and so another great season of sailing is in store for the club, with your participation and the work of our club executive.

So while that new sail or hull work starting to come to mind, here are some things to expect from “the exec”, more coming in future newsletters!

Mike Wuetherick has been really helpful ensuring a smooth transition for the new exec, veterans and newbies alike.

Frank Neelands has continued to manage the financials, keeping us afloat (ouch), and providing a venue for our meetings (thanks!)

Cheryl Murdoch has our meetings well organized, records, minutes etc. up to date.

Sheldon Nadeau is learning the critical role of harbourmaster, numbers and deadlines expected to be out shortly.

Don Ulsifer has the final draft of our 2017 schedule, coordinating a good mix of 4 series, make up races, weekends and socials… some start training and rules change updates…Instructions too… stay tuned!

Byron is arranging membership cards as we work to firm up enrolment figures, combined with safety suggestions so we know who’s on the water each Wednesday.

Susan Cossi has already helped the club profile, supporting Doug Stuart’s contribution to the Festival of Trees (thanks Doug!) and connecting with the town of Sylvan, planning a charity sail… more fun than a garage sale for sure!

Brent a willing partner with the website, Nancy Smith will have an updated membership list as soon as practical.

Al Fischer will be busy September 8-10… EOSH!

And your new Vice Commodore, Bob McNaughton is a quick learn, organized and committed to the club… the future looks good!
