February 2019 – Mark Your Calendars

The 2019 calendar is set and ready, with lots of exciting activities planned for the upcoming year.  We are still looking for someone or some bodies to captain the spring cruise.   Don’t be shy, just pick a place and let the party begin.  Speaking of cruises and parties be sure to read the announcement regarding the Orcas Island Kayak and Club Cruise later in this newsletter.
The Board has already begun thinking about next year and planning for the next Change of Watch. We will also be looking for possible candidates for next year’s Board. Please let us know if you have any interest. By the way, Club members are always invited to join us on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.  Feel free to let me know.
Finally, I am sad to announce the death of our dear friend Gordon Labuan.  Gordon and Karen have been members of the club since 2011 and there was never a reason that would keep him from attending our meetings. We will all miss his smiling face and positive attitude.

January 2019 — Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all! 2018 was a great year and ended perfectly with a fun holiday party.
2019 is sure to bring more amazing opportunities, beginning with three exciting General Member programs that you don’t want to miss. Thanks to Bruce Morris and Jim Rogers for planning the programs. Katy Shaner continues to make plans for growing the newly developed kayaking program with both on the water as well as off water events, including a “cruise” weekend on Orcas. In addition, there will be the “regular” club activities like; Opening Day, the annual fishing trip, Crab Fest, Land Cruise, and Commodore’s Ball, not to mention the cruises and all of the on the water activities sponsored by the YSA.
I truly believe the best days are still to come and with all of your help we can make it happen.
