Reports from the Bridge

Feb 2014


The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.


One of the most important jobs in any organization such as ours is that of the Secretary. As the recorder of the Club’s official record, Lynne Rumbold excels in all aspects of the duties required of that position. While her efforts most often go unnoticed, the lack of notoriety is due, in large part, to both her professionalism as well as the quality of her work. Her minutes for both the General Membership as well as the Executive Committee meetings are complete, concise, accurate and timely. We, as a Club, are very fortunate to have someone of her caliber in that position. Thank you, Lynne, for doing such an exceptional job!


The New Year’s Eve party, Chaired by PC Don and Donna Park, was a huge success. From the mouthwatering appetizers to the succulent prime rib dinner, the food was exceptional. The music, dancing, Champagne toast and balloon drop all contributed to making the event a great way to ring in the New Year. Adding to the fun were 15 of our friends from the Poulsbo Yacht Club who hosted the event last year and will, most likely, host it again the end of this year.

Your Jr. Bridge Officers took advantage of the opportunity afforded us at the Queen City Yacht Club’s Winter Cruise-In the weekend of the 11th of January to roast our Commodore. This annual event is filled with fun times and the Commodore Roasts are the highpoint of the weekend. No injuries were reported and everyone seemed to enjoy the spectacle.


Crystal and I will be off to the Gig Harbor Yacht Club’s JO Ball the weekend of the 8th of February. The theme is “Last Night of Atlantis” and promises to be another memorable experience as we all dress up in our best togas and dance the night away.

With warm personal regards,
Ray Norton
