Special Meeting Report 
 
Thank you to all members who came to the special meeting this past Monday.  The bylaw change for special elections was passed (both parts).  This will allow the nominating committee to reconvene ASAP to prepare a recommendation for nomination of a candidate for Vice Commodore.
 
There was also a report on the financials by Treasurer Rick Humphrey and a presentation with a productive discussion on server compensation and service quality led by Rear Commodore Peter Fein.  
 
The Rear Commodore's report covered the progress in updating the server compensation plan, following up from the discussion at Fall Meeting.  The Employee Relations Committee (which includes the Rear Commodore and General Manager) will be making a complete recommendation on comp changes early next year with the first phase happening this week - see the news item below.  
 
All materials presented at the meeting are available in a member protected area of the website for committee reports:  http://www.bostonyc.org/page/news/committee_reports 

Additional gratuity line on your dining/bar check
 
The first server compensation change is coming this week.  When you dine and drink at the BYC you will now have the opportunity to reward your server with an additional gratuity for excellent service.  This change has been discussed at the recent member meetings and has received wide spread support from both the membership, Flags, BOT and management staff.  Look for the "Additional Gratuity" line at the bottom of check and just fill in what you feel to be an appropriate dollar amount.  The additional gratuity will go 100% to your server or bartender that waited on you.  The house charge will remain the same at 18%.
 
Please contact Britony Wells generalmanager@bostonyachtclub.net or Peter Fein rearcommodore@bostonyachtclub.net if you have any questions.

Frostbiting season moving at hull speed - Racing this Sunday!
 
Finish your shopping at Harbor Holidays on Saturday and then come on down to the club on Sunday for frostbiting!  Last Sunday was a success with six boats doing nine races to kick off the season.  Results, crew info and everything else can be found at:
 
 
We need flags, scorers/recorders and patrol boat drivers every Sunday from now through 12/28/14, and from 2/15/15 through 3/29/15.
