Winter Blahs Party!

Greetings Sailors!   

I hope everyone has successfully endured these past few weeks of relatively cold weather here and that our N.C. members weren’t too inconvenienced by all the snow.  A few of us were fortunate enough to escape to warmer climates for a bit, but more about that later…

Meanwhile, it’s time for our WINTER BLAHS PARTY!  Time to shake off the cabin fever and the cold weather blues and get together with our sailing friends!  This year’s party will be held on Saturday, March 9, from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. in the conference center building at Roan Mountain State Park.  For those of you who’ve never been there, Roan Mountain State Park is an incredibly beautiful park located on over 2000 acres at the base of  6285 ft. Roan Mountain, approximately 20 miles from Watauga Lake.  I encourage you to come early on the 9th to drive around and experience the diverse forests, hiking trails, driving tours, creeks, and wildlife in the Park.  For more information on the park:

We’ve reserved a large area of the conference center which has a huge fireplace, porches, game room (with pool tables, ping pong, and a couple of “old school” video games) and kitchen with an ice machine.

The Club will be providing barbecue and buns and members are asked to bring a covered dish to accompany.

There is plenty of AV equipment in the room if anyone wishes to bring photos or videos of their sailing adventures or past Club events to share.   WE’D LOVE FOR MUSICAL MEMBERS TO BRING THEIR INSTRUMENTS TO ENTERTAIN US!!


PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible (at least by March 6th) whether or not you will be attending so that we can order the appropriate amount of food! 

I will send out more details to keep everyone up to date.  If you have specific questions or comments, do not hesitate to e-mail or call me.   Thanks and hope to see you all on the 9th!

Commodore Gayle
