Last Saturday night we celebrated a great many accomplishments at our annual awards dinner. It was very well attended and an excellent opportunity to get together with so many people. Most importantly it gave us the chance to recognise the community spirit and voluntarism of a fantastic group of people.
As many know, there are three very special trophies that we give out on an annual basis that recognise individuals who have contributed to our common good above and beyond what is already a very high standard of voluntarism.
This year the following awards were presented:
2019 Racing Series - B Series
In the past few days your club has sent several important e-mails. Have you been getting them? Here's a sample of what has been sent:
A Series 2019
The First series of the year. Boats compete for the Silver Plate
You may have noticed the odd white stuff that seems to be in the air and on the ground. It doesn't normally last very long, but it can cause problems on boats. Please check on your boat over the weekend. Take a look at your scuppers and drains to make sure they haven't been clogged. Also a good time to look at your shore power cables as melting snow can cause shorts.
Some strong winds are forecast over the weekend so take the time to double check lines as well. If there are loose items CFSA sail ties are available at the bar to support the FRC.
I just wanted to quickly let you know about some of the upcoming social events going on at your club. I know that at this time of year it is easy to batten down the hatches, but there are some great events happening at the club that you should strongly consider attending.
There will be a Friday Appy Night on Friday 8 February beginning at 1700 in the Clubhouse. Lyn Pirquet will be in attendance and this will be a wonderful opportunity for us as a club to support Lyn and remember her husband John who passed away suddenly in December. Please bring an appetizer or plate to share and all of those great memories so many of us have of John.
Hope to see you there,
