As I write this article, we are just a few days away from our 2005 Heavy Weather Weekend. In walking about the Club this morning, I believe we are ready! The Work Party last weekend accomplished all of the needed tasks in preparation for this event and the Club looks spectacular. Almost all of the A-string electrical upgrade has been completed, the docks have been cleaned, the Clubhouse spiffed up, the landscaping titivated, and the yard debris in the park area removed. My thanks to our Work Party Chairman, CAPT Al Fox, and all the members who participated. As a heads up, the next Work Party is scheduled for the 9th and 10th of April followed by another on the 14th and 15th of May. There is still an extensive list of projects to be completed this year, so those members still needing Work Party credit should plan accordingly.

A special thanks to the Skipperette galley crew for the great lunches provided on Saturday and Sunday. Your continued support is most appreciated.

On a housekeeping issue, I have recently noticed debris such as soda cans, paper coffee cups, tissues, and plastic shopping bags left around the Club and on the ground in the parking area. Yes we have a Caretaker who provides our janitorial services, but he is not hired to cleanup after us. Those members working around the railway and in the park area, please check your shoes before you enter the lounge. There has recently been some severe carpet stains in the lounge which cannot be blamed on Hu Dat coffee. The appearance of our Club is the responsibility of all the members and reflects upon all of us. Please take a minute to look around and help keep it clean!
