Well here we are in March and if mother nature cooperates we will be removing shrink wrap and launching boats before long. I’d like to remind all the boat owners to please communicate and cooperate with our yard and dock committees before launching your vessel and be certain that your paperwork is in order. It is a very simple and quick procedure that benefits all boat owners and your cooperation will be appreciated.
We had some very well attended events in February starting with our super bowl pre-game party which for the third year in a row was a great success. We unfortunately had to cancel our Steak & Whiskey night due to lack of participation. These functions are important to our future and I ask for more membership participation.
On Friday, March 10th we have our Annual fishing awards dinner which is always a great event and I encourage members to purchase their tickets before we sell out. On March 17th our very own Billy the cook will be providing a Saint Patrick's day lunch for members and guests alike. Friday March 30th is our annual Lenten fish fry and famous stuffed clams served up by Freddy G, the ladies auxiliary and their incredible crew. Please come down and support your club!
We have plenty of work to be completed in and outside our clubhouse before boating season begins primarily cleaning, painting, power washing etc. I’m also looking for some members to take an interest in our bar stools, we purchased these barely three years ago and they are falling apart and we are asking for volunteers to repair as many as we possible. Please give us a hand and get your work hours in early.
In closing, it is imperative that the membership communicate with the Board of Governors if a problem arises. Too often we hear about a problem after the fact when it's too late to resolve the issue. Please communicate when necessary.
Our next General Body meeting will be held on March 27 at 7pm new faces are welcome
Your Commodore, Scott Gorton

The countdown has begun. Only a couple of months to go before we can get our boats back in the water and start our season. Hopefully the warm weather will continue so we can get a jump start.
We extend our sympathy to the family of Richard Stockman. Richard was a member of MYC and passed at the end of January. We also extend our sympathy to Neil Knecht on the loss of his father and to Sean & Alex Kennedy on the passing of Sean’s mother.
We had a couple of scares this past month with severe illness, but luckily everyone I have been notified of is now on the mend. Please continue keep our friends that have been ill or fallen on tough times in your thoughts and prayers.
