When James Hitchison was the General Manager of the Club he decided he didn't need a dedicated parking space within the club grounds. Since then (and with the blessings of Pat Nora, our current GM) the space has been offered to members as part of a raffle benefiting the Junior Foundation.
The 2014 winner of that raffle was Sharon Cook. As you can see from the photo on the right, Sharon lives close enough to the club that her preferred form of transportation doesn't require a full parking space. So she gifted the spot back to the Junior Foundation and a slient Aucton was held.
Mel Fabiszak was the winner of that auction. Mel (and Neptune) will be enjoying the spot for the remainder of the boating season.
