 Well here it is middle of May already...  Opening day was again well
represented by BYC with 9 boats including an Officers Boat as Captain Ray Norton
cruised Impressions down the Montlake Cut, and, following behind in the "P"
category, was the BYC Parade Boat with Captain Rob Bruins at the helm. I
would like to thank Mona Lisa Ryan and her crew (see Capt Ryan's article (?)
for names) for putting a float together on such short notice.

Three years ago I was told if you run for a Bridge Office (Rear
Commodore) your time will go fast, and you will make great friends from
other clubs, not just the Grand Fourteen. I am here to say that all
information given to me stated above is true. Going thru the Chairs was
a great experience. Thank you all for your patience, forgiveness, and
your friendship.  

After 36 articles and countless editing my time on the front/home page comes
to a close. I have tried to keep the redundancy to a minimum as I wrote
my articles. 


POINTS TO PONDER (FINAL TIME)

The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World
War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo. 

There are four cars and eleven light posts on the back of a $10
dollar bill

Ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine. 

Most lipstick contains fish scales. Yum. 

During the chariot scene in 'Ben Hur' a small red car can be
seen in the distance.

A rat can last longer without water than a camel.

Thanks for Reading.
