|Well here we are in June
already! The best part of June is not Father’s
day or even my birthday, but the annual NIMBY event!
This year NIMBY XVII
will take place June 28th – 30th at Navarre,
FL, well outside of the Father’s Day “NO
GO” window. I hope you made reservations as
our block of rooms is sold out. Last month’s
club meeting was sparsely attended with only me
and the Vice Commodore in attendance (a slight exaggeration).
Hopefully I will see more of you at the June meeting.
Last month we said a sad farewell to Nora who is
off to a new job in Dallas, TX. Those of you who
know Nora, know that she is a very determined sailor
and her determination was rewarded with first place
in C fleet at the Smith Regatta! Tina is shown presenting
Nora’s award. Congratulations Nora and good
luck in Texas!
Well that’s all for this month. I hope to
see many of you at the NIMBY. It will surely be
a memorable event as usual!

Scribe who was absent)

Mark moved to approve the minutes and was seconded
by Linda and Tina.
Linda said Stephen C. Smith probably raised at
least 16k, but more likely 18 to 19k to the American
Cancer Society. Two boats are going up on Craigs
list that were not auctioned off, so there is
more money a coming.
For training we have has 6-7 adult sails rigged.
Chris McMahon repaired the new wide board we bought.
Thanks Chris! We appear to be decently equipped
for training this year, though if someone wants
to donate some LIGHT booms, masts and small sails
we will gladly accept.
Bob A. encouraged folks to assist with training.
We prefer one trainer per board with 2 students
First lessons this weekend with the Venture Scouts
and lessons 2, 3 and 4 are booked. Bob G. in charge
of sign up list. Wakulla news carried a piece
on the lessons.
Tina presented a trophy to Nora for her “C”
fleet accomplishments. Nora is moving to Texas.
We’ll miss you Nora!
