RYAN ALSO THINKS THAT RACING DINGYS, THE JR BOATS, AND LASERS. WE HAVE AGREED AS A BOARD TO GIVE GLASSES FROM YEARS PAST AWAY INSTEAD OF PURCHASING NEW ONES THIS YEAR.

SOCIALS: DUE TO THE SPACE BEING TAKEN UP WITH PULLED BOATS WE ARE GOING TO BE VERY SHORT ON SPACE THIS YEAR. BECAUSE OF THIS AS WELL AS LOW WATER LEVELS ETC. WE ARE UNABLE TO OBTAIN AN SUP FOR SAILFEST IN JUNE THIS YEAR. THIS COUPLED WITH OUR FINANCIAL SITUATION HAS LED US TO DELAY SAILFEST FOR THE TIME BEING. WE WILL DO SMALL EVENTS IN LIEU OF SAILFEST AND WE WILL PLAN AN EVENT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE CARDBOARD BOAT RACES BUT UNTIL DREDGING IS DONE WE CANNOT PLAN AN EVENT AS BIG AS SAILFEST. I HAVE TALKED TO DAVE AND HE IS REALISTICALLY THINKING THAT A LARGE EVENT CAN BE PLANNED FOR OCTOBER. OPENING DAY WILL CONTINUE AS PLANNED WE WILL HAVE TO ADJUST HOW WE DO THINGS. IF WE HAVE TO WE WILL BLESS BOATS IN THE PARKING LOT. WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE SAILFEST DECISION AND THE NEW CALENDAR ON OPENING DAY. FOR OPENING DAY WE WOULD LIKE TO INCORPORATE A RAIN DANCE CEREMONY. IT HAS BEEN DECIDED THAT WE WILL DO A SMALL SOCIAL AND A MOVIE EACH MONTH. A MOTION WAS MADE TO POSTPONE SAILFEST BY VAL SECONDED BY RYAN S MOTION ACCEPTED.

MEMBERSHIP: WE CURRENTLY HAVE APPROXIMATELY 10 MEMBERS FOR THE CLUB.

WOMEN’S PROGRAM: VAL IS WANTING TO POSTPONE THIS EVENT BECAUSE MOST OF THE BOATS WILL BE GONE FROM THE MARINA. THE SUGGESTION WAS MADE THAT SHE POSSIBLY CONTACT THE PARK CITY SAILING CLUB AND SEE IF THEY WOULD WANT TO DO THIS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THEIR WOMEN’S PROGRAM THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO START. VAL AGREES AS LONG AS THE DATES WOULD WORK. IF NOT, IT IS AGREED THAT WE WILL REFER ANYONE WHO CONTACTS US TO THEM. RYAN M WILL GET VAL CONTACT INFORMATION.

JRS PROGRAM: TIM IS STICKING WITH THE DATES AS PLANNED AND SEE HOW IT GOES. IF THE LAST ONE NEEDS TO BE CHANGED HE WILL LET US KNOW. WE HAD ANOTHER BOAT DONATED. IT IS AN ERICKSON 27. TIM HAS OFFERED THE JR BOATS FOR RACING AS WELL AS TO BE THE COMMITTEE BOAT FOR THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT RACES IF ANYONE WANTS TO TAKE A JR BOAT OUT.

CRUISING: DENNIS HAD 15 BOATS SHOW UP FOR THE BURGERS AND BEERS CRUISE SO IT WAS A GOOD TURN OUT FOR THE FIRST CRUISE OF THE YEAR. DENNIS CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE ANY OTHER CRUISES PLANNED BUT HE IS WORKING ON IT AND WILL LET US KNOW.

DENNIS WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR $50.00 TO MAKE THE WEBSITE LIVE AND SHUTTING DOWN X-MISSION. VAL MADE A MOTION AND IT WAS SECONDED BY DOUG, MOTION ACCEPTED. DAVE HAS ASKED THAT DENNIS WAIT A BIT TO SHUT DOWN X-MISSION UNTIL HE CAN GET A NEW ACCOUNT. HE WILL NOTIFY DENNIS.
