Our journey has begun.  As I write this I havenít yet been installed as your Rear
Commodore but the roles and responsibilities are already in motion and weíre hitting
the ground at full throttle.  As a refresher, Iím listing the R/C responsibilities
so that you will know that Iím the point of contact if you have questions or issues
with any of the following: Reciprocity, Club Stewards, Galley, Club Setup, Clubhouse
Christmas Decoration, Tree Trimming Party, Lighted Boat Parade and Picnics-in-the-Park.
If you are interested in chairing or helping with any of these positions or activities
let me know.  On the horizon, the Picnic-in-the-Park dates are June 16, July 21 and August
18.  P/C Gary and Jo Carr will be chairing the June picnic so you know it will be one you
wonít want to miss.

Iíd like to thank all of you for your words of encouragement as I take on this position.
The support from Commodore Rosendale and Vice Commodore Longenecker has been uplifting
as they guide us into this new position.  Bev and I are looking forward to representing
BYC in the coming years with excitement.

At my high school graduation commencement (way back when), I gave a speech that combined
lessons learned from athletics and math theory with the axiom, ďThe whole is equal to the
sum of its partsĒ.  With that in mind, realize that BYC can only be all it can be when
everyone is participating.  Iím hoping we can get some of the seasoned BYC members coming
back to social functions to enlighten our newer members in many of BYCís grand traditions.
