We had 29 hungry people at our delicious haul-out lunch on October 14. Portside catered the event for us, and we enjoyed savory chili with fixings, french bread, salad and enormous chocolate chip cookies. In addition to the interesting discussions among the boaters present, Bronte Gross of North Coast Community Sailing spoke a bit to tell us about their program providing low-cost access to big lake sailing for all. Our club presented North Coast with a donation of $250 to support their program.
Several members joined or renewed at the meeting, taking advantage of the 2017 holiday from initiation/lapsed member fees. Our active membership is now at 52, representing 29 boats.
Mark your calendars for January 13, our winter potluck in the Twin Cities. If you’d like to offer to host the event at your house, please let Ted or Pat know.
Let the refitting season begin!
