Thank you all for your participation and hard work in making the Season a meaningful and rewarding time. Free time around the Holidays can be sparse, and I really appreciate the time so many have given this year.
The Lighted Boat Parade is already upon us and I find myself sitting here staring at a huge stack of Christmas Greetings. It is now that one realizes how much this Club impacts the Community and what a difference it would be without it. Letter upon letter thanks BYC for providing such a Wonderful display and making this their family and friend event of the year. Much gratitude to the Skippers and Crews in making this water born pageant so meaningful to so many. The Parade is executed completely by a team who volunteers their time because they love the commraderie and giving back to the Community and I am proud to be a part of the team this December.
The Heavy Weather Weekend is right around the corner, commonly referred to as the Winter Yacht Classic. The largest predicted Log Race in the World is held right here in Dyes Inlet. The affair will encompass the entire membership. This year we witness a four-day event and the planning has been going on since last summer. The success and execution of the Plan depends on your involvement and should prove to be one of the best Yachting events seen in years. Accordingly, be prepared to answer the call to bare a hand.
I would like to wish each of you and those close to you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. As the year and packed schedules draw to a close and we actually see beyond the Holiday busy times I look forward to seeing you at the January 13th Friday Night Social and to many events in the New Year. Thank you all for your support and encouragement these past months and I look forward to 2006 at BYC.
