Commodore's Corner - November 2009

A lot is going on within the club which is possible because YOU pay your dues and attend our events. I want to extend a big thank you for all those who came out to the Endless Summer Sailboard Classic and to those who have paid their dues.

There is a separate article about the progress of our training house, so all I’ll say is that it is coming together and should be done by the end of the year. If you have not yet come out to help, please consider doing with the few workdays left. We have a small yet skilled cadre of people who continue to contribute their time to this project.

Also, Deb Berlinger will be moving our website over to a new hosting site. Deb says “I am still looking at changing our web service provider from ASPwebhosting to GODaddy... this is needed to fully deploy the www.20knotsnob.com site using Coldfusion instead of the old site at ASP hosting using ASP. “ Deb has done a great job on the website and has been a joy to work with during my reign as Emperor, umm, Commodore.

The great Swami has gotten the band back together. We had our first practice this past Wednesday, with some new faces and returning alumni in attendance. There are several new songs in the work, though the rumor that we are going to do all the songs on Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” are unfounded. Or are they?

Lets not forget the upcoming Christmas party on December 12th at the Shriner temple on North Monroe. A new place, with heat, and the possibility of wearing silly little hats. Drink, dance, socialize, and just have fun. Though we prefer folks to dress up for this event, it is not required. If you don’t, you may be made fun of, but, then, so will the folks that are dressed up. Kind of like every other event the club has.

The Festivus Celebration on December 20th promises to be interesting. Rumors of feats of strength between the Commodore and Vice abound. Being the Commodore, I could put those rumors to rest if I wish. I don’t wish to. You’ll have to come out and see. We had a Festivus miracle last year, and expect another this year.

In Conclusion, later.
Your Commodore Bobby G

Roof Raising at Shell Point

The Great Trailer Building Weekend of 2009, held on Saturday and Sunday, October 24 and 25, 2009, was a big success. We had a good turnout of SPSC members for the major build, putting in almost 100 person-hours of volunteer effort last weekend. We made great progress getting the trailer "dried in", as shown by the following completed projects:

1. Nail and glue T-111 siding onto trailer side wall studs;
2. Install 3'0" front door and 6"0" double back door;
3. Build gable overhangs using roof trusses;
4. Set all 14 roof trusses;
5. Install face boards on roof trusses;
6. Install decking on roof trusses;
7. Lay out and install synthetic "felt" over roof;
8. Install hurricane straps to top cap and trusses;
9. Install flashing to roof edges.

Thanks go to these individuals who gave up their time to work last weekend:

Bob Andrews (Saturday)
Lee Chapin (Saturday and Sunday)
Stan Derzypolski (Saturday and Sunday)
Wright Finney (Saturday and Sunday)
Rick Knerr (Saturday)
Tina Mazanek (Saturday and Sunday)
Perry Morris (Saturday and Sunday)
Andy Reich (Saturday)
Kathy Voigt (Sunday)
Mark Voigt (Saturday and Sunday)

We'd also like to thank the following folks for their assistance:
Linda Downey, for letting us work on the trailer in her side lot at Shell Point;
Amy Crowson, for donating the 3'0" door;
Perry Morris, who hosted the showing of "Young Fronken-schteen" at his place for the Martini Matinee following the Saturday work day.

We plan to have another work day to finish the siding on the trailer ends, install various trim pieces, and begin the painting of the siding, starting with priming. This work day will be called for sometime mid November. After that, the last major item on the trailer will be to order and install the metal roof.

Thanks to all workers on behalf of the SPSC for your great volunteer effort on our soon-to-be-completed teaching trailer.

Wright Finney
