Vice-Commodore Report: September 2017

We've finished our Summer of Themed Sails designed to help our newer members get started enjoying our sport of sailing. I've heard nothing but good review. So I guess we did OK. Feedback is welcome, so let's hear it. Send to my e-mail address, or to Rich Reed's, John Pasch's, or Ken Butterly's . . . but let's hear from you.

For our September program we've got Professor Ted Karamansky from Loyola University, to give us some insight into how the schooner trade helped build Chicago. I've heard Ted talk, and he's a really interesting, enjoyable speaker. Let's see everybody out at our 18 September meeting.

Also -- don't forget our photo contest at our October meeting. Get your favorite entries to me, best as 5 x 7 inch prints, but JPGs are OK as long as they look good when I make 5 x 7s out of them. NOTE: if JPGs aren't approx. the right aspect, they may not be cropped the way you hoped for. It is best to print them yourself and mail to me. ALSO -- a new feature this year will be the opportunity to present your club-related videos (yes, home movies!), up to 10 minutes in length. They won't be judged for prizes, but will play during the meeting for all to enjoy. We will provide more on this at the September meeting. Get ready, get set, GoPro!

Finally – we have a weekend sail coming up at Lake Mendota on September 22 and 24. These inland lake sails are great opportunities to spend a lot more time on the water than on our Saturday afternoon sails on Lake Michigan.

See y'all in September!
