Annual Marina Contracts
Annual marina contracts will be due on December 1, 2017 for the 2018 season. Please note that unless the club received word by that date the existing 2017 tenant would be committed to their slip for the 2018 season. If you missed that deadline please contact me immediately so that we can work to help you resolve the problem.
Member Service Feedback
Thanks again for all of the comments regarding menus and service from our membership. Your feedback is helping us shape the food and beverage program and continues to provide valuable information toward consistently exceeding member expectations. We hope you will come down to the club and enjoy some of our newest menu offerings for the winter update. The House Committee has asked us to maintain the current philosophies for the menu design but will be acquiring more data via comment cards and a member survey to help determine whether any broader changes are desired. We look forward to their direction and will do our best to accommodate the varied member preferences going forward.

As a follow up to last month’s article you may recall that we were in the process of replacing the pipes in the marina used for fire suppression. That work is complete and we are very happy with the results. The new stainless steel pipes will have a significantly extended life over than the lines that they replaced which should save the club money and ensure a safe system for many years.

School is in session! Well not for some of us who are long past those years but at least for our kids and grandchildren. We wish everyone a great beginning to the school year and we hope to continue to see our families on the weekends and perhaps a special night out in the middle of the week during the school year.

International 505 Regatta
I wanted to extend a special thanks to all the volunteers that helped the club host the I505 regatta at the end of September. Our international visitors were not only impressed by the amazing regatta management and infrastructure to support the event but by the hospitality of our membership and staff.
I also wanted to thank our management team and service staff who not only handled all of the increased ala carte business as a result of the event but also provided the food and beverage service for our members and for both the Opening Ceremony Party and the Mid-week Party. Kudos all around!

The recent heat is a clear indication that summer has us firmly in its grasp. While working on the boat, enjoying a regatta or participating in one of our terrific sailing classes we want to remind everyone to hydrate and take time to cool down in the air conditioning when possible. We have seen a few people suffer the symptoms of heat stroke and we want guarantee that there are no severe cases at our club. Headache, nausea and fatigue are but a few of the early symptoms to keep an eye on.
We also ask that we all help with identifying these symptoms in our smallest members of our club, the kids, since they may not know to do so on their own. Safety is our highest priority! Besides what better place is there to cool down than in the clubhouse enjoying the best view in Annapolis!
