Commodore's Comments

Hello Sailors....the End-of-Summer-Hummer is coming fast!  Unfortunately that means the season is also coming to an end as fall weather sets in!


Hummer Details: 
This year's event will start with registration on Friday Sept.16th at the clubhouse starting at 5 pm. Food and snacks will be provided Friday night so stop by for a bite and place your bets with the competition before the racing on Saturday Sept. 17th and wrapping up Sunday Sept. 18th. This year the Saturday evening Social event and dinner will be held at the Sylvan Lake Legion.  Tickets are $125 per boat which includes one dinner ticket, additional tickets are available at $25 per person. Please let us know who many folks are coming so that we can plan for the food for the events.  Beer, wine etc. will be available at the Legion, however please note that the club will not be running a cash bar at the Marina Bay clubhouse this year...BYOB if you want to enjoy a pop dockside.
 
 
Volunteers Needed:
We still need a few volunteers to help out with the events for the weekend.  Specifically we need some help with the clean-up crew on Sunday for the Clubhouse and coffee/donut runs for Saturday and Sunday morning.  Moving the dinner to the Legion is intended to lower the work load on those folks helping out the organizing and to provide more room to sit down and socialize after the dinner.  
 
Finally, and very importantly.....we need some volunteers for Race Committee this year.  Lisa Rangen our Race Officer is unable to lead the group this year due to health reasons and at this point we need to find a few folks with some RC experience or willingness to learn over the next few weeks of Wednesday racing.  In addition to the RC boat we could use a volunteer for Mark/Pin boat for the hummer weekend.  RC Volunteers will be provided with lunch both days and dinner tickets ....plus maybe some other goodies for helping out.
 
Boats/Crew:
If your boat is short of crew and considering not entering please let me know, I hope to be able to match sailors with short-handed boats to maximize the number of racers we have on the water this year.  Last year we had 14 boats in total on the start line and hopefully we can beat that number this year and start building momentum for Hummers of the future.
