Special Message:
The boat show is just two weekends away. It will be our greatest opportunity to recruit new members before the new clubhouse opens and the initiation fees goes to $4,000. If you are coming to the show do bring along a friend who would enjoy being a member of The Club so they can get the full club and harbor experience.

Thank you to everyone who is volunteering. We’ll be sending out more information about the event, your rôle in it, and inviting you to a pre-show briefing next week.
