As you all know, Heavy Weather Weekend is right around the corner. We've really promoted this event throughout the Puget Sound area, and expect good attendance. It is important for all of us to come out and support our club and show our visitors a great time. Please let the Float Chairman, Capt. John Rosendale, know if your slip will be available for visitors. If you plan to race, and are under the club cover or in a boat house that might be blocked by "timbers" or visitors, please let John know so we can get a n open slip for you. If you're not going to race, and are in an open slip, let him know so we can get you under cover for the weekend, thus opening your slip for racers or visitors. Don't wait until the last minute to make your intentions known. Heavy Weather is a team effort and cooperation is the key to its success. "Timbers" go up on Thursday, so we'd like to get boats moved the previous weekend or early in the week, rather than later. We've had a lot of new members join the club since the last Heavy Weather, so here's your chance to get involved and earn lots of "Service Points". For you "long time" members, don't forget that Heavy Weather is "an all hands event". Join the team, get involved, have fun!

It's hard to believe it, but election of new officers and Executive Committee members is just a few months from now. We need energetic, well qualified members willing to step forward to assume the leadership roles of the club. The Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, Secretary, Treasurer, and two members of the Executive Committee will come up for election in May. If you are interested in taking a responsible role in club management, contact any member of the current bridge, P/C Gary Carr, Chair of the Nominating Committee, or any Past Commodore to learn about the duties and responsibilities. Don't be shy or feel intimidated, step up and volunteer. The club needs your support and you'll find a lot of satisfaction in serving.

The General Meeting on March 20th will be a "Dinner Meeting" commencing at 1800. After dinner, and before the meeting, we will be given a presentation by the Seattle Yacht Club "Opening Day Trio". Watch for the flyer and sign-up sheet - you don't want to miss the dinner and entertainment; always great fun.

See you 'round the club,
Charles Billings
