Well here we are in February and although it is a short month it seems painfully long if you’re a boat owner. We have a few events planned for the club this month starting with our Super Bowl pregame on the 3rd starting around 1pm. Food will be provided for a $10 charge. Also our annual fishing awards dinner will be held on March 9th at 7pm. Tickets are available behind the bar. Once again I ask that members make an effort to support the club during the winter months. It has been very quiet and it would be nice to see a few more members stopping in.
Just a reminder that dues for electric, storage and work hour should have been received by now and in fact are due. If you happen to be one of those members that did not receive a bill or have not paid yet, I encourage you to get your payment to the club as soon as possible to avoid a 20% late fee. Failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from payment. Please contact the financial manager by email if you have questions. Your cooperation is much appreciated.
We are always looking for new members and I encourage the membership to bring family and friends to any of our functions and perhaps entice them to become members as well.
Our next General Body meeting is on February 26th of this month. Please try to attend!
NOTICE: General Body Meetings are now scheduled to begin at 19:00 hours (7:00 PM) 4th Tuesday of each month
I have posted the 2019 Boat US Co Op member information. Take advantage of their educational videos on line. I will also have the 2019 Yacht Club of America cards for the GB meetings.
Greeting to all;

February is just around the corner & hopefully we will here from Punxsutawney Phil that we’ll have an early spring! One can dream, right? I know most of us are looking forward to a good 2019 boating season. It is not far off; hang in there!
We extend our deepest sympathy to the Gaglione family on the passing of Michael who lost his battle with cancer at the end of January. John, Irene, Johnny & Michelle, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Please keep our friends that have been ill or fallen on tough times in your thoughts and prayers.
Congratulations to Art Garber’s daughter Kori on achieving her 2nd degree brown belt in Martial Arts last month. This is tremendous accomplishment and one that takes a great deal of dedication. Way to go kiddo!!!!
