Artka George 2014Snow in the North and Cold in the South, just a typical Wisconsin spring. But there is hope. Soon we will see the sun and the temperatures will rise just enough so we can start working on our boats.

As you prepare your boat for launching, please be careful while working on you boat or slip. If you are going to work on your slip alone please consider wearing a lifejacket. If possible always have another person help you as you work on the slip. 

Let’s also be mindful of the environment.  Please vacuum or sweep up as much of your sanding dust as possible.  Please us a tarp while sanding and painting. The club has purchased a Porter Cable sander which connects to a vacuum system. The equipment is available to use by our members. Please contact General Manager Pat Nora for the use of the equipment. Clean up your spills and help our club be environmentally responsible as we get ready to start our boating season.

Thanks to everyone who helped out at the work party on April 12th.  As the work party started so did the rain. All of the volunteers continued to work at their assigned jobs and in the end we had a lot of wet members, but we were able to get our slips open for the boating season. 

We had a busy day on April 12th. The wine and bourbon tasting was fantastic.   Sam and the kitchen staff did a fabulous job with the hors d'oeuvres.  And I know many people stayed around for the disco party that evening.

As I write this article the Crew Search Party will be taking place. I know that it will be well attended and everyone will have a great time talking about the upcoming racing season.

I mentioned in last month’s article of the Compass that the South Shore Park area is being redesigned. The goal of the redesign is to control water runoff into the lake. I was told by Milwaukee County that our club grounds would not be included in the engineering study. On April 17th our club was informed that we will now be included in the study. This means that over the next few month’s workers from Milwaukee County and from the engineering firm which was hired, will be working in the outer parking lot and on our club grounds.

Please remember to check the website calendar for upcoming events. Spring is here so let the fun begin. See you at the club.
