Ex-Committee Reports

Commodore (Saul) The deadline for the Dept. of Boating and Waterways Aquatic Center grants for 2006-7 is likely to be in November. They haven't sent out the grant app materials, and the directors' conference is scheduled for October 25 & 26 at Stanford. Saul noted that it is important to include that we offer classes to the public in our advertising. This will be necessary to obtain a grant. Saul will attend the 2005 Aquatic Center Directors Conference at the Stanford Sailing Center on October 25 and 26.

Mark Yampanis is currently rating chair for sailing. Ardeen is still chair for windsurfing.

Vice Commodore (Jamuel) via email Sheldon and I were working to get a blurb about CSC loaded onto Course Junction. I have submitted an ad and had it published. You can see the text at: "" This (free) ad runs indefinitely (until Sep 2010) and only needs to be updated if we substantially change something within the club related to sailing and windsurfing lessons. I've also instructed our webmaster to add a reciprocal link to our web site (I've placed it under the Commericial Links on the "CSC Links to Other Sites" page) per the agreement with Course Junction-- here is the text:

Course Junction – The World's Premier Course Marketplace - "" Course Junction is an online marketplace where course participants and course providers meet. With thousands of course listings, there is a great chance that Course Junction has the course you are looking for!

Other remarks: Thank you to Bill Moseley for his tireless work in helping me keep the website updated.

Co-Secretaries (Caryl/Lori) The Tuesday night races have ended, due to the sun setting earlier. There may be a request in the future to allow use of the JYs for racing on a weekend afternoon, if there is enough interest among racers.

New Agenda items:

1) Matthias Roschke's senior windsurfing proposal. Matthias would like to update the Windsurfing booklet as his senior project. Saul made a motion to accept Matthias' project. The motion was seconded. All voted in favor.

2) Changing the start time of Open Houses (October to spring) to 1:00 p.m. Saul made a motion that Open Houses start at 1:00 p.m. instead of 2:00 p.m. Peter seconded the motion. All voted in favor.

3) Final approval of John McBride's senior project. John was given the senior spiel via speakerphone, thus his project (a large part of the labor of the newly refurbished clubhouse) is completed. Saul signed off the completion of his project on John's white card.

4) Lifetime memberships for Roberto and John McBride. A motion was made to give Roberto and John, the major players in renovating the clubhouse, lifetime memberships. The motion was seconded. All voted in favor.
