Thank you Michelle for the information below and keeping us informed all year.
I wanted to add a few more details that might help someone decide to get involved and add to the future of our club. One of the statements that I hear people say is that they don’t get involved because they may not be able to make it to meetings. Since Facebook IM’s, texting and emails are so easy to use and available no matter where you are, we only had one meeting this year and it was to set up the calendar of events. Everything else was done by emails and IM’s. This is how previous boards have handled decisions and conversations for years. You also have access to the prior years commodore for any suggestions or advice.
Also, receipts can be emailed to the Treasurer. The payment can be mailed to you.
Racing plans, updates and scores are sent per IM, also racers can take turns setting up the race course. Racers can take turns bringing hotdogs, etc. for after the race.
The Rear Commodore can request that the volunteer that cooks the entre also set up the pavilion with utensils etc. Just keep the supply cabinet stocked for the events.
The Training Commodore can ask for speakers and help with different subjects.
The Secretary will send all information from his or her computer from home.
Of course, the Commodore will work with everyone to coordinate the groups and the year to run smooth, but again, electronic communication is a great thing. You can also hold a quick meeting at the Oar House since most of you will be a the lake anyway. There’s a lot of flexibility in what you do. Use your imagination, change or update the club in the best ways that you think the majority of it’s members would want to see it, but have fun and just do your best. __________________________________________________________
