Warm Weather Alert! RC Organizational Meeting April 18 at 1030

“In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” And your RC Chair’s fancy turns to…Race Committee!! Well, maybe not just Race Committee. Anyway, in honor of Spring’s long-awaited arrival, we're holding the RC organizational meeting this Saturday, April 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the Dining Room. Yes, it’s the same day as the seminar, but we’re running out of free weekends, what can I tell you? We’ll shoot for a Meeting Part Two if necessary.

Lunch will be served following the meeting, so I need at least a rough head count. Please let me know if you can make it, RC’ers new and not so new invited. Come see what all the RC buzz is about, you won't be sorry! Bonus: Free drink ticket to the first person who correctly tells me the author of the quote about Spring.

Race Committee Organizational Meeting-April 18 10:30
 
The good weather calls and Ken is getting the boats ready, so it's time for our organizational meeting, starting at 1030 this Saturday in the dining room. Come sign up for race days and see how we can enrich your weekends and Wednesday nights. We'll discuss the summer ahead and plot our next moves. Yes, notice is short and it's the same day as the Race Management seminar, but since most of us took the class last year, I think we're ok. If you are attending the seminar, let me know.
