Let's go sailing!

It appears that the river will be back in its banks by Saturday.  We need to have a work party to get the club back in shape after all the rain and flooding.

Read on...

If we can get this done Saturday morning, we should be able to get some boats in the water by the afternoon.   Zack Elkins and Lee Gerstle have washed a lot of the mud off most of the upstream docking area.  The Laser/Sunfish area need to be power washed to get the moss and mud removed. 

We also need weed eaters to cut grass around all the boats that were moved to the top of the hill.  The restrooms need to be cleaned. 

We need two power washers, many weed eaters and some people to get the club back in operation.
