2014 Fall Newsletter

The summer featured some really good windsurfing and kiting, the wind gods were a little stingy, but made up for it by providing dry conditions at the flats. Many maintenance items were addressed over the summer. The club enjoyed bonfires and cookouts at the flats over this summer, and of course the most beautiful sunsets anywhere. Unfortunately there were only 5 - 10 sailors to enjoy all of this, think about changing your time here to May, June and July. Perfect conditions, warm water, south winds and no crowds.

Fall Dinner:

The Fall Dinner is scheduled for Friday November 14th. There will be a $10 suggested donation to attend the dinner. The donation will cover the cost of the dinner and space rental. The club officers have discussed having some type of auction at the dinner. Anyone with ideas or items to donate please send an email to Leo, gustmeister@hotmail.com.
