Commodore's Last Corner - December 2010

Well thanks Bill Olson for chairing a great Christmas Party. The venue worked out great, there was plenty of food, beer, booze and music to last through the night. Thanks to everyone who came early and helped decorate the place and for those who stayed late to help break it all back down. Thanks to those who made sure the College Football junkies were able to get their fix! A satellite dish and television were set up so the ACC Championship game could be broadcast! Okay, so the outcome could have been better but thanks to all of you for making it possible to at least watch the game. Later in the night, Swami took his perch to deliver his Christmas Story and a strange hush came over the crowd. Well, I guess except for the sound effects from time-to-time. Thank you Santa Swami for your sailing inspired Christmas Story! Once again, DJBobbyG spun the tunes for us until the lights came up and the cleaning was done.

Festivus was an absolute hoot, as usual!! Sunset Martinis were mixed (thank you Perry) with various bottles of gin provided by the masses - was there a Festivus miracle hidden somewhere in one of those bottles? I think there was!! Miraculously after the “slap” the Vice Commodore’s confidence began to soar! He challenged “La Commodora” to a harness tug of war!! The victor of this contest would be crowned the 2011 Commodore of The Shell Point Sailboard Club. Of course I accepted his challenge. Alas, the Vice never mentioned anything about helmets, knee pads, shoulder pads or any other protective gear that he seemed to have a sack full of but wouldn’t share. With a line being drawn in the sand, the tugging began! Vice won the first round by forcefully pulling me over the line! “La Commodora” won the second round! Not only did I win the second round, I drug the Vice around the beach! I couldn’t help it - when he hit the ground I had to drag him over the line and damn near to the Festivus pole. I was beginning to enjoy this feat of strength when all of a sudden I began to feel a little sorry for him. Hey, at least I didn’t drag him all the way around the pole and back over the line where he started! Vice got his payback and triumphed in the third and final round of the harness tug of war! I think he enlisted help because someone (or some Huzzies) gave me a push from behind that sent me across the line a second time. This meant that my reign as Commodore was through! In accepting my defeat I gave the newly crowned Commodore a big hug. Problem was trying to get away from him – everyone at Festivus this year was witness to an accidental harness hookup!! I couldn’t help but yell at him “Dang Bill, get your hook out of my hook!!” After a good bit of uncontrollable pulling, tugging and cussing we were unhooked and your new Commodore is on the loose! Welcome to the Commodore’s stoop Bill!

To the membership of The Shell Point Sailboard Club, each one of you in some way or another has made my year as your “La Commodora” a positive experience. As a group this year we accomplished the task of getting a new Training Trailer built and moved to the beach! No matter what your part has been or will be it makes this club work seamlessly.

Thanks to each and every one of you for making The Shell Point Sailboard Club a success!!!!
