Reports from the Bridge

Jan 2016

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It’s always nice when family and friends can get together for this joyous time. We had a wonderful time at the Port Orchard Yacht Club New Year’s Eve Party. Hats off to ALL of the members for making the December’s Events so successful. Your support is greatly appreciated! We had, I believe, record numbers in attendance at all of these events. This was the 1st year that I have had our boat out for the Special People Cruise and the Lighted Boat Parade. They were both excellent, and I look forward to being a part of them again next year.

January is a busy month for the Jr. Officers, and likely so for the Commodore as well. The Grand 14 Officer Cruise-In to the Queen City Yacht Club’s out station, then Edmonds Yacht Club for their Jr. Officer Ball, and followed by Meydenbauer Yacht Club’s Jr. Officer Ball. These are all Friday night through Sunday activities. But don’t forget to mark your calendars for January 22nd Spaghetti and Meat Ball Dinner at our fantastic Club.

In closing a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “When you're finished changing, you're finished.”

We look forward to seeing everyone at our events and around the Club,

Dan Saikkonen
Vice Commodore
