June 2021 Message from the Commodore

First, there is no General meeting in July with so many of us out on the water, so don’t let this chance to stay up to date and informed on the opportunities  coming up slip by.

Here’s a quick overview for the next several months:

Friday night Log Dodges are back every Friday night 6:30 river starts, Covid style in June, hour out and back, no Club meeting after.

This weekend is the Port Ludlow Back Bay Raft up hoisted by Chip and Marianne Handewith, always a great time!

Our Club House is in need of some attention. A work party is scheduled for June 19th so please come help and join in on this group fun.

This would be our 1st chance to get together there in over a year. There are many jobs to cover, I’m sure there is something that would match your talents.

July 9th is race 1 of the 2nd series of Log Dodge 6:30 river start from shore with Club House gathering after with BBQ/ Dinner and refreshing beverages shared. Whether or not you have been out racing, come down and join in on this fun.

The next morning is the departure of the “Mount Rainier Vista Tour” from the 10th to the 25th.

Grant and Linda have designed this cruise so it works as either a one week or two week event to accommodate your vacation planning. There are many state parks in south sound to be explored, these cruises are really an opportunity to build some great relationships and lay down precious memories.

Then in August we cruise to Poulsbo 6th through 8th (closer than you might think at 30nm). It’s a really fun port of call were you are right at the center of town at the marina, with a party barge and indoor float to boot.

Then, on the 11th, we’ll have our 1st General Meeting at the Club House!!! This will be a Pot Luck Event. Boy Have I missed these over the last year!

Mark your calendar, October16th for a Celebration! Milltown Sailing’s 40th Anniversary Party! Details later.

Thank-you all for working through the renewal process and keeping our club flush with funds for this year. Sandy Buus and Steve Lucas put in yeoman service on this, special thanks!

If Question or thoughts have floated to mine be sure to come to the meeting and ask/share them, I’m sure everyone will benefit from your incites and thoughts. We really have a great group here and love your involvement.

MSA Commodore,

Captain Dale Beech

Bruce Hayden Memorial Sail Saturday May 9, 2020

Commodore Pam Dittrich, Mark Dittrich and Margo Hayden parked on the northwest side of Hat Island in Else as club members passed by sending hugs and dropping flowers in memory Bruce Hayden. The photos below are from just a handful of boats passing by to pay tribute to our beloved club member.
