Hello members,

 

We recently had our board meeting to discuss plans for the rest of the year and what to do about the election of officers.  We’ve decided two things.    

 

First, it's just not worth the risk due to COVID-19 to meet as a group for the last two monthly membership meetings (September elections and October Pig Pickin).   It’s regrettable but so be it.  

 

As to elections, your entire board (including me) is willing to serve another year essentially repeating 2020.   If there are no objections from the membership, this is what we will do.  Our new terms begin November 1, 2020 through October 31, 2021.  Please contact a board member if you have another suggestion.    

 

We sincerely hope we can resume face to face membership meetings the last Wednesday in March, 2021.  In the interim we will continue to post water safety information on the web site and Facebook.  

 

After our October 8th board meeting teleconference, I will send out a year end summary sometime in November along with thoughts for next year and the treasurer report.   I can assure you the organization is on firm financial ground.  

 

What a year!

 

Brian

 

North Carolina is still in Phase 2.  We are sounding like a broken record but the Board decided to cancel this meeting.  It just isn’t worth it taking a chance to put a member's health in jeopardy for a meeting.   We have no significant issues before us other than Election of Officers.  As you know with the Littleton Festival cancellation, the Safety Trailer will remain parked for the rest of the summer.  I’m hopeful we can at least meet once to have the election.   We need a new President to replace Brian so if you are interested please let a board member know.  

In case you didn’t hear, the Board agreed to cancel our June monthly meeting due to Covid-19.  Assuming we can get out of Phase II and infection rates decline, we are hopeful that the last Wednesday in August might just work.  If you see a board member in town, let us know if you would be interested in having dinner at Kennon House.  

i took the photo below the other night out near MM 4.   I didn’t notice the other boats doing the same thing until later.
