We are now into the busier season of the year; Christmas is less than 6 weeks away! This is also the busiest time at Bremerton Yacht Club, with The BYC Tree Trimming Party on Dec. 3rd, Children's Xmas Party on Dec.4th, Special Peoples Cruise Dec 5th, the BYC Christmas Dinner Dec. 12th and Lighted Boat Parade the following Friday and Saturday. When you come to the Christmas Dinner, please remember the less fortunate and bring a non-perishable food item and place it in the box marked "Food Drive". Hope to see you at many of these events. The Kitsap Federal Credit Union is looking for BYC member volunteers to help their Educational Grants Foundation by acting as Santas and Elves by making phone calls on Dec. 8th at the East Bremerton Branch, sign-up in the Lounge.

The Lions Club is looking for donations of Eyeglasses, look for the box marked "Eyeglasses" in the BYC Lounge.

At our next General Meeting on Dec 6th we will have a Guest Speaker from the U.S. Coast Guard a Mr. Dan Shipman who will speak of changes to the Homeland Security Act, and how that affects us recreational boaters.

You may have already heard that our Caretaker has given notice of his departure; Donnie Sherwood will be leaving us the end of November. I have therefore asked Captain Chuck Silvernail to advertise the position of Caretaker to find a suitable replacement.

The A String Whaler Replacement is almost finished at this writing. The electricians are busy replacing the Electrical Meter bases at this time. We will also be upgrading to 30amp receptacles on the entire A String.

The Wastewater Committee Chairman Dave Cordodor is still looking for a few members on his committee. This is an excellent opportunity for you newer members to earn service points to gain moorage or improve your moorage location. Give Dave a call.

The BYC Annual will be available at the Club Store by the time you receive this Towline.

BYC has signed a contract with Northwest Pump to install a card reader system for the fuel pumps. Time frame given is two to three weeks for installation, testing and training.

Angela and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone of you a happy and joyful Thanksgiving.
