Changing of the Bridge, 2018

Ahoy All WLSC Members!

First, a big thank-you to Bob and Shari Hebner for organizing, decorating, and putting on a really nice Annual Fall Meeting last Saturday at the Triple J Barn in Roan Mountain.  We all enjoyed the happy hour and a delicious catered dinner, followed by a fun meeting and awards presentation.

During the meeting, the members present elected the following new officers for 2019:

  • Commodore – Dave Gurysh
  • Vice Commodore – Billy Becker
  • Race Captain – Rob Remme
  • Cruise Captain – Russ Veldman
  • Secretary – Monika Wiedmann
  • Treasurer – Kim Anthony

The new officers look forward to conducting in 2019 a mix of events on the water, docks, and deck that hopefully will represent the interests of the membership.  You will likely see some “retro” gatherings, including eating breakfast pancakes after a couple of Summer morning races, a Saturday night movie or two on the deck, and a “meet and greet” new members on a couple of weekend evenings with wine and cheese.  Rob Remme will lead the racing program and Russ Veldman will plan raft-ups and cruises on the lake, and possibly cruising/sailing on a much larger body of water.  And of course we will have some great cookouts on holiday weekends, and continue popular events like the Veterans Regatta, Summer Solstice, Youth Sailing Camp, etc.

We will be calling you to support these events by helping to organize and carrying through the event, and of course by attending.  If you have any comments or ideas for your officers to consider, please feel free to email me anytime.

Membership dues are due on Jan 1, 2019:  A motion was passed at the meeting to keep the membership fee at $40.  Please mail your check to WLSC at P.O Box 342, Hampton, TN 37658 by the due date of Jan 1, or give your payment to Kim Anthony or myself at the Frostbite Race on Jan 1st.  Thank you much.

I look forward to seeing you at the Turkey Trot race this Saturday, 1pm Skipper’s meeting, 2pm start of race.

Sail on My Friends,

Dave Gurysh

WLSC Commodore
