Ex-Committee Reports

Saul (Commodore): Thanks to Jane Morson for collecting raffle merchandise, as well as finding a skiff for $8,900.00. Congratulations to Matthais Rothski, our newest Senior Skipper. Beth and I attended the Community Sailing Meeting where our discussion centered on the possibility of passing the lido’s on to the kid’s program, if we get rid of them. Joaquim has agreed to build the Antrims in the CSC yard.

Ben (Vice Commodore): The last open house was successful. Thanks to Tom and Fred for sticking around all day. The next open house is April 26th, the Berkeley Bay Festival. The club will be offering open house rides from K-dock. We will have a table set up at which we will be handing out club information as well as selling Sweepstakes tickets. The club is holding a fundraising sweepstakes for many great prizes donated by members of the sailing community including Svendsen's,Pineapple Sails, Extrasport, and others. The sweepstakes drawing will be held April 27th at the club booth at the Pacific Sail Expo. Tickets can be obtained for a suggested donation of $1/ticket or $5/6 tickets, and are available at the both the sail expo and the bay festival. Cal-sailing will also be offering club T-shirts, in three different designs, available at the club booth at the sail expo. The shirts will also be available following the show.

Jim (1st Vice Commodore): Our second trailer is about to die, but our fleet is running well thanks to Ed and Greg. We may have new issues with laser use regarding the new seniors.

Trumpton McFarlane (2nd Vice Commodore): Barbara is stepping down, and there may be someone else filling in for her. Several people will be teaching windsurf clinics soon; one will be on board repair.

Don (3rd Vice Commodore): There is a senior wannabe who is willing to do work on the Ensign in the yard, as his senior project.

Tom (Port Captain): Everything is running fine; one Day Leader may be leaving.

Peter (Treasurer): I move that we pay the following bills: $438 to DMV to register the 3rd JY (Nica Juga), it’s trainer, and the second P15 $250 to BYC for the room (naw, not that kinda room, for the general membership meeting, $754.60 to Pinapple Sails for dinghy and keelboat sail repairs, $367.72 to Port Supply (yes, dear, I will buy everything from Svens from now on) for sail covers for the keelboats (this actually was already approved, but hell, its just one motion) battery charger for one of the keelboats, and some epoxy for repairing the Rhodes (that too was approved), $343.75 to Leif Wadleigh for bookie services
