As I write this article, it is just a few days before the Heavy Weather Weekend and there is still much to be done. With the added day and events, this has put an added load on some Club members and a few are beginning to feel stressed out. I personally want to thank all who have pitched in and participated in all the events over the past few weeks and are stepping up again for this big weekend. Your efforts have made these events a success and are most appreciated! At the same time though, participation has dropped and difficulty in finding members to chair events suggests that it may be time to review the Club social calendar for the year to determine if the desires of the members may be changing. There will be more to follow on this subject.

Those who were not able to attend the Taco Feed, January Breakfast, Crab Feed and Superbowl Party missed some great events. Thanks to CAPT Jim Markham, CAPT Bob and Marva McWaid, CAPT Randy and Marcia Trott, and CAPT Mike and Mona-Lisa Ryan and their crews for some wonderful times. In addition, I want to recognize and thank the Skipperettes for hosting “Skipper’s Night” on February 1st. It was a fabulous dinner followed by a great program using our new digital projector on cruising the Inland Passage and Alaskan waters.

Looking forward through the next few months, the Planning Committee will shortly be finalizing the projects and equipment to be needed for next year and then passing the recommendations on to the Budget Committee for funding. Please make it a point to attend all of the upcoming General Meetings so you are aware of the needs of the Club and be a part of the decision making process. Your input is important! On another note, the Nominating Committee, chaired by P/C Gary Carr is still looking for candidates to fill the positions of Treasurer, Secretary, and two Executive Committee members. Anyone interested should contact P/C Carr or any of the Club officers. Additionally, I will be looking to fill chairmen for the Railway Committee, Float Committee, Special People’s Cruise, and Work Party. I would appreciate anyone interested to contact me as soon as possible in order to enable a smooth transition. These are very important positions that need to be filled in order for the Club to operate efficiently.
