I trust that this message finds you all well and, in spite of the weather, eager to get the sailing season started.
By now you have probably had the opportunity to review the minutes of our fall meeting and read Stephen Leavitt’s message with the various attachments.
I would like to make a special request for your consideration. At our May 1st meeting we are planning to have a pertinent discussion regarding the goals/directions and actions for our club. Please come to our May AGM prepared to share your ideas and offer your help to implement them. I am sure that as a team we can continue to work together cooperatively to enrich and strengthen our club.
At our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 2, 2013 members approved a “new” Constitution for the MSA and, at the same time, agreed that amendments to this Constitution would be considered at our fall meeting. You have already received edits/amendments to this Constitution as proposed by your Executive. These proposed edits/amendments will be on the agenda for the November 4th meeting.
The summer of 2011 proved to be a great sailing season. The year began with a successful crane in; we had approximately 34 boats in the water within 3 hours without incidents. Crane out was equally successful. Many thanks to Guy and Jocelyn for organizing both dates and to all members whom participated. Great team work was demonstrated by all.
Welcome many new members
Park is finalizing the tendering process adding 10-12 more slips with the continued participation of MSA Executive.
At last night’s AGM your “Aspiring MSA 2012 Race Committee” became your Official MSA 2012 Race Committee plus it picked up a few more people.
The Race Committee Chair is yours truly, Dino Kubik, and your members are: Rod Pickles, Kevin Pegler, Steve Vardy , Dale Hamilton, John Tarr and John Beal
We look forward to engaging you all over the 2012 season and continuing the MSA traditions of great participation, dramatic finishes, and fun BBQs. The Wednesday Night Race Series is a new edition to the schedule and is sure to offer a new dimension to life at Mactaquac.
Calling all Stations….
This is your Past Commodore.
The May 04 AGM had a great turn out and resulted in your installing Kim P. as Commodore and Guy H. as Vice Commodore.
More on the full executive and committee members in a follow up Blog from you new Commodore. Kim P.
Here is the Commodore’s Report as presented (except I don’t use last names on the internet)
As for my future Blogging… well, I have to work that out with the new executive and commodore. As discussed at the AGM, I’m willing to work on increasing MSA membership numbers, encouraging MSA member involvement in activities, and do some PR for the MSA. Blogging may be a useful tool. Stay tuned…
