Commissioning Day Continues

We had a dedicated group that show up at the club last Saturday in spite of an early morning rain to begin getting the club grounds in good shape.As indicated in the last Current Conditions, the bottom level was covered with water and work would have to be postponed until this coming Saturday. If you still need to fulfill your obligation for commissioning, this Saturday would be a good time to do that. We will start work at 9:00. If you can not be there find something at the club that needs to be done and take care of it.

The work list is located at the bottom of this edition of Current Conditions. Of course, we need weed eaters and lawn mowers. As of this morning the river should be low enough to get the bottom level cleaned off.

Upcoming Events

May 21st Commissioning (Alternate date)
May 28th First day of weekend Fleet racing
May 30th Memorial Day Sail and Social
June 4th 1 pm Joint Sail with Derby City Sailing Club (DCSC)
