As I sit down to write this article for September, I wonder, "What happened to the summer?" Penny and I have finally purchased a home in East Bremerton and are now in the process of sorting, throwing, and packing. We make the move August 31st following a week long visit by the grandchildren and at the same time painting and re-carpeting. A trip to Oro Bay over the Labor Day weekend will be most welcome!

The Grand 14 Officers' Cruise-In was a huge success with the Class of 2007 properly installed. Our Club facilities remain the envy of all! Many thanks to the members for your patience and understanding during that busy weekend.

As V/C Charlie Billings mentioned several times in his articles last year, please fill two bags of ice when you take one from the freezer. I constantly find the freezer less than half full. If I had not checked a few days before the Cruise-In, we would have been in serious trouble. For the life of me, I do not see why this continues to be a problem when the answer is so simple! What has happened to common courtesy and consideration of others? Isn't this what yachting and this Club is all about? Enough soapbox, please take time to help.

Again, please take a minute to update your personal data for the upcoming Annual before it goes to press. All of us rely on the information contained in that publication for the various functions at the Club and often if there is an emergency. Please help!

Penny and I look forward to a relaxing fall season and our first General Meeting on 20 September.
