The Week in Review:

There has been no sailing for the past week because of River Conditions.

The road work was completed and was opened a few hours early. Please be respectful of our neighbors and travel slowly to and from the club.

The mud has been hosed off the lower level and most of the drift wood has been removed. The “gravel” areas still have a considerable amount of mud on them. Be careful until it dries. Thanks to Cliff Vatter, Eugene Cox, Bill Timmer, Stuart Ulferts, Jim McBee, Jim Wilhelm, Pat Passafiume, and Lee Gerstle for their work.

The committee boat will be recommissioned Friday.

Thanks From:

"Thanks for the heads up. I stopped by Sunday to say thanks for moving my boat, but no one was there. I l left a case of Coors Lite in the frig. I hope that is a good offering to the boat moving gods." - Joe Bechely

"Well done gang! Thanks to everyone who came down to the club and pitched in." - Keith W. Kenitzer

Host an Italian Student:

Sally Crespo is looking for a host for an Italian boy who loves to sail. "He will be arriving shortly, if we can find him a host for the school year. Hosts need be 25 or older, but they can be single or couples, with or without children. They commit to room and board only. Students come with their own insurance and spending money. I will help all year long with the placement, paperwork, school slot, etc. We like to place students into hosts with like interests, thus I am approaching you about Gianluca. Attached find a little more info about him. Feel free to call if anyone is interested. Thanks." - Sally Crespo, 593-0318
