Hi Everyone, 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 pregame party which for the fourth year in a row was a great success. These functions are important to our club and I ask for more membership participation.
The Miamogue has acquired 158 Seaview avenue which is the house and property next door. The club has been trying to purchase this property for nearly 40 years and we should all be excited with this transaction. I would personally like to thank Chris Tearne,
Dan Hunsberger and Kevin Coles for spearheading this acquisition. Thanks Guys!
On March 9th 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 15th our very own Billy the cook will be providing a Corn Beef dinner followed by karaoke for members and guests alike.
On March 23rd is our “Meatball Mania” cook off with prizes awarded to the winning recipe! 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 would like to thank Mel Hobson, Wayne’s father and a non-member for repairing many of our barstools. Thanks Mel! 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. Communication is key!. Our next General Body meeting will be held on March 26th at 7pm. New faces are always welcome. Your Commodore, Scott Gorton
NOTICE: General Body Meetings are now scheduled to begin at 19:00 hours (7:00 PM) 4th Tuesday of each month

Good & Welfare Spring is coming & here are a couple of fun facts for you: Spring arrives 3/20 at 5:58pm. For the first time in about 40 years the vernal equinox will occur on the same day at March’s full worm moon & according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, it will also be the final supermoon of 2019. Also according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the best days for fishing in March are 6th – 20th. I’m sure there will be a few of you that will be able to prove the Almanac right. May you always have a line in the water.
Congratulations to Julio & Kristina Rojas on the birth of their son Luca Benjamin! MYC’s newest little captain was born on 2/22 & is welcomed by big brothers Caleb & Julius. Mom, Dad, big brothers & baby are all doing well.
As always, please keep our friends that have been ill or fallen on tough times in your thoughts and prayers.
As spring approaches so does graduation season. If you have a student that will be graduating from school, whether it is PreK, Elementary, Middle, High School or College, I’d love to make sure we wish them congratulations.
