Commodore's Report (Scott Hotes)

Halloween Event. Scott and Dan are still planning the attack on the AHawaiian Chieftain@ this Saturday. A number of people will help out, including Scott, Dan, Narcisse, Stephen and Barbara Roos.

Vice Commodore's Report (Veronique Anxolabehere)

Veronique had no items to discuss under her report.

First Vice Commodore's Report (Narcisse)

Dinghy Status. The mainsheet on Lido #7 needs some work. The 505 also needs some work.

New Jibs. The late delivery of the Lido jibs was looked into, and Pineapple Sails said that there was a time lag in between when we discussed with them the purchase of the sails, and the time we confirmed the order. The timing of the order will be verified with Peter Baczek.

Second Vice Commodore's Report (Olivier Colliou)

No report was provided.

Third Vice Commodore's Report (Dan Acland)

Dewey Repair. The mast fabrication is complete, and it will be picked up Sunday.

Radios. Axel, as a Senior project, is setting up the Ensigns to have the radios be removable. They will be stored in the motor locker and be plugged in when needed.

Elections. Dan sent out the letter to prospective candidates for the Executive Committee election to be held at the General Membership meeting next week.

Rear Commodore's Report (Louis Benainous)

No report was provided.

Treasurer's Report (Patrick Twohy, via e-mail dated October 22, 1995)

Report. Scott will read his report at the General Membership meeting next week. In his message, Patrick notes that he will probably not be able to attend the meeting but will accept nomination to the Treasurer position for one more term.

Port Captain's Report (Stephen Gehlbach)

Dayleaders. Stephen will be hiring a couple more Dayleaders. He talked to one prospective Dayleader who had been on the Cal sailing team, and was familiar with the operation of motorboats.

Docents. During Stephen=s report, Narcisse noted that she and the Dayleader Jeannette are now docents for the environmental area by the Club.

Secretary's Report (Bill Csajko)

Operating Rules. Apparently a number of copies of the old Operating Rules were ordered by someone from Kinko=s in September, and were just now picked up. Bill will make more copies of the addendum that describes the rule changes, and will delay printing copies of the new Operating Rules book.


Rating Committee. Dan moved that Scott Hotes be nominated to the Rating Committee. Narcisse seconded the motion, and it passed unanimously.

Replacement Dinghies. Schock still will not provide a specific date for them loan us a new Lido on a trial basis. Dan will call Hobie to find out how long we have to decide if we want to order the One-14. Everyone agreed the One-14 seemed a very viable choice, considering the rugged construction of the dinghy (and, correspondingly, the fragility of the production Lido). One remaining question is the ease with which it can be righted after a capsize; Dan, Scott, Narcisse, Rebecca and Bill plan on going to Sacramento at 8:00 on Saturday morning to try it out. (Note: Subsequent to the meeting the time and date was changed to 9:00 Sunday morning.)

Dressing Area. Narcisse suggested that the small area behind the tool locker, where scrap wood is stored, could be made into a changing room. We may have to check with the Marina manager prior to constructing the facility.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:45 PM.

The next regularly scheduled Executive Committee meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 16 , 1995. The General Membership meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 2.
