It’s hard to believe that it’s already the fourth of July and nearly all of the boats have been launched. I feel that the yard, docks and club house are in good shape but as always there is work to be done all around our club. Members that need work hours should be contacting the dock master, yard master, and our house chairman for projects that we need to accomplish. Work hours will be strictly enforced this year so please don’t wait until November to fulfill your obligation to your club.
I would appreciate it if more members used common sense and respect other members when parking their vehicles in the yard. If you have a large vehicle, have friends coming down, or you are going to be on the water for a long period of time to kindly use the back lot and not the black top.Also on the note of common sense and respect for others, when using the fuel dock it is imperative not to tie up in the middle of the fuel dock prohibiting other members from tying up. It’s very irritating and we hear about it constantly.
Please be advised that no one is allowed to access the club after hours for any reason. Doing so sets off our alarm system, the alarm company calls your commodore and others in the middle of the night, as well as the Bridgeport Police. If the clubhouse is locked do not enter!
We are part of the boating community in this area and I ask that you be polite and respect members from other clubs as well as the boating public in general. You never know when we will need a helping hand from others.
Lets have a safe and happy boating season. Next general body meeting 7/24/18
NOTICE: General Body Meetings are now scheduled to begin at 19:00 hours (7:00 PM) 4th Tuesday of each month

There is nothing better than seeing all the boats in the water. The weather may not be as warm as it could be but people are enjoying their boat time.
Graduation time from college, high school, middle school, elementary & preschool is almost over but there is always time to recognize the dedication of our students.

2. Recording of Work Hours All work hours to be considered for credit will be recorded on the Work Hour Sheet. The hours worked will be time stamped (using the club time clock). The hours worked will be punched in and out for each person separately on the Work Hour Sheet.
