Did you attend the New Year’s Eve party? If you did, I know that you had a great time. The food was absolutely fantastic! And the dance floor was crowded all night.
Looking forward, we have a very full calendar of events. Check the website calendar over the next several weeks as all of the Powerboat, Entertainment and Sail Race Events will be added. I think you’ll see that the club offers something for everyone, and that there are very few open weekends. It may be too cold to go boating here in Wisconsin, but there are many ways to enjoy the camaraderie of SSYC.
When you read this, we will have concluded the slip change process. Hopefully we will be able to accommodate everyone. We may still need a few volunteers willing to move to a different slip to allow all of the deep-draft boats to remain at SSYC. Water depth will be a concern in 2013 and we have meetings setup with Milwaukee County and the US Army Corps of Engineers as we work toward possible solutions.
The club continues to struggle a bit when it comes to recruiting new members. If you know anyone who might be interested in joining, please bring them to one of our events, or just to lunch or dinner, and introduce them to SSYC. We’re offering reduced initiation fees for the first seven months of the year. Let’s see how many people we can find to take advantage of the offer.
As always, I am honored to serve as your Commodore.
