Labor Day Weekend Activities 2012

Good morning everyone!

I’ve been waiting on the weather forecast, which originally called for Isaac to head our way over the upcoming weekend.  Looks like it will pass to the west of us, hopefully giving some much needed rain to the Mississippi River Valley area.  Looks like for now our weekend holds cloudy skies and a chance of thunderstorms, so let’s schedule our weekend and do what we can!

Friday evening:

6:30 p.m.  Docktales Party   Bring your favorite beverage and an appetizer to share as we mingle with fellow sailors we haven’t seen in awhile.

7:45ish…Evening Sail on the Lake.  Friday night is a BLUE MOON (second full moon in the month of August, IF we can see it through the clouds!).  If you’ve never sailed or motored on the lake at night, it’s a wonderful experience!  Make sure the appropriate lights are working before heading to the lake, as the TWRA has been known to stop boaters and give them tickets.

Saturday:

8:30 a.m.      Fun Race, Captain’s Meeting, 9:00 a.m. Start time.  Format to be announced at meeting.

Post race      Pancakes on the dock

2:00 p.m.      Youth Race to the Observatory and back

6:00 p.m.      Brats on the Dock  Bring your favorite grillable: brats, hot dogs or other meat along with buns and a side dish or dessert to share.  Club will provide condiments (slaw, chilli, kraut, ketchup, mustard, onions, relish, mayo) and a cooler of softdrinks

Sunday:

8:30 a.m.      Fun Race, Captain’s Meeting, 9:00 a.m. Start time.  Format to be announced at meeting.

Post race      Pancakes on the dock

2:30 p.m.      The Painting of the Box!  Aspiring artists of all ages are invited to come out and help decorate the dock boxes.  Ed Lockett will be assisting with paints and brushes and ideas.  Come add your favorite lake scene and join in the fun.

5:00 p.m.      Hamburger Cookout.  Club will provide burgers, buns and condiments.  Please bring a side dish or dessert and your own beverage.

Mow the yard!

I hope to see you all for at least part of the weekend!
