The Commodore's Crow's Nest - February, 2012

On tuesday evening I received a call from Bob Graves and other board members who seemed to be taking their Fiesta Key libations seriously. There were concerns about a missing agenda. Mike Levine offered that Im a peach of a Commodore or that's how I heard it. Thanks, Mike. Then the call was lost. Party on!

Recently there have been conversations and discussions about offering more racing for our members. Currently our annual calendar includes only three club competitions, the Smith, the NIMBY and the Endless Summer. Since we also schedule lessons on eight Saturdays during the summer, it has been suggested that one or more races after lessons would get more members out on the water. To get a sense of what the membership wants, I ask that each of you who races or would like to race (or even those of you who just like to share your opinions) to take a few minutes to be heard. I hoped to have survey form ready for you to complete. But alas my hopes and dreams rarely keep up with reality. I will get the survey out on our website soon. Your feedback will help SPSC rejuvenate the beach scene and hopefully keep our new members more involved in the club.

Club Meeting Minutes for January 2012

18 people present. Dave came late. We ended up with 19 people present.

Meeting called to order at 7:39 by a bugle blown by a man with a wig and tri corner hat. Wait, that guy was our Commodore. Apparently his head was too big for the hat. Happens to all new Commodores.

First order of business was to adjourn the meeting from December that never occurred. The minutes from the meeting that didn’t take place were also approved.

Purser’s report. Wright presented past Commodores trophy to Bill. Everyone clapped. Bill gave a heart tugging, tearful speech. If any of this ink is runny, I’m just remembering the speech.

We have money in the checkbook. Actually, it is in a bank, but the check book is supposed to reflect how much is there. We have some taxes and insurance coming up to cover and some outstanding balances from the Christmas party. I personally thought the balances about mundane.

We have 51 memberships.

Everything is set for the Keys trip. Perry mentioned the bike ride this Sunday.

Kids lessons day showed some interest. Bob A. will send out a survey to see who would attend.

Summer racing on training days was mentioned at Board meeting. Bill made challenge to everyone that their collective butts will be kicked. Bill has skills.

Talked about upgrading the training equipment and the need for some more stable boards like the Prodigy.

Commodore was going over the calendar of events and indicated lessons needs to get tide information for lessons and football schedule to Endless Summer.

Mike Levine said if you are going to put a Jew in charge of the Christmas party there will indeed be changes, with Hanukah being mentioned. Dreidel tournaments loom in the future as does repeated playing of the Hora.

Mark V. moved to adjourn, Perry seconded. No one opposed.
