THE SAILING SEASON IS WINDING DOWN TOO FAST!
This month I need to thank the membership as a whole! At our last general meeting we solicited members to become a part of the board and we received a great response.
Do not forget to bring your printed pictures on 5 x 7 paper to our October meeting for the photo contest Please remember to send all your pictures to both Gayle for the communique and Peggy for the website.
Our next scheduled meeting will be held on Monday, October 16, 2017 and our next Board Meeting will be held on Monday, October 9, 2017 at the Palatine Library.
I hope that you are planning on attending the banquet being held in November. I know that several members object to the “formal” or “black tie” apparel description. I describe the men’s apparel as coat and tie. This is a better description as to what I desire at the banquet. No one will be refused entry, but please do not wear shorts. We will be having a contest for the most outrageous tie or bowtie. Based on the feedback from the members regarding the venue in past years, we have moved the event to the Illinois State Beach Park in Zion Illinois. This has caused a slight raise in costs.
Let’s make the banquet as popular as the “Wish I Was Sailing Party”.
We are now looking forward to getting all of our boats put away for the winter and will be hoping for many more warm weekends like the last weekend in September. If you need help getting you boat out of the water, please let Mike Saavedra know and he will solicit help.
Fair winds and smooth sailing,
