July 4, 2009 - RACE

Wow, I just got word what Ross has planned for the race. It sounds like so much fun. Here is what he has planned:

"Just for fun, this July 4 we are planning an informal event to test your knowledge of Milford Lake as well as your sailing skills. At 1:00 sharp, under the shelter, we will hand out a list of Milford Lake trivia questions that can only be answered by making observations from your boat on the water. The challenge will be to sail around the lake to answer as many of the questions as you can before the race ends at 4:00. The team with the most correct answers wins. If there is a tie, the boat who turns in their answers the soonest will be the winner. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers. In honor of the Independence Day Holiday, boats displaying an American Flag will be awarded bonus points. It should be a great time--bring family, friends, a Milford Lake map, a GPS unit (not absolutely necessary), and a cooler full of your favorite beverages. "

This just sounds like so much fun. I think we should coordinate our efforts, get some great teams lined up, and really have some fun with this.

Happy sailing. -- Donna

July 4, 2009 - Race and Social

Looks like the July 4 weekend is going to be a great time. The club has planned another race. Hopefully we will have wind this time. I will update the race information when I know more. Following the race we are planning our 2nd catered event of the season. This is going to be a fun one and the food will be amazing. Put on your grass skirts and coconut bras and hula with us for a fun luau. We are going to try to get Jim Waters to get the margarita machine again for us. Be sure thank him. Wasn't that super fantastic last time? Woot! Dinner at 6 p.m.

"Jo Beth's Annual Family Fun Day" is scheduled for July 5 (Sunday) starting around 3:30 p.m. We will have the pavilion pretty full with many of our friends and their families so hopefully we don't scare anyone off. Come join us for fun activities, dinner and birthday cake. Jo Beth will be 6 years old that day.

We took the boat out today and it was a perfect day. We threw up the black sail. I just love that thing. Marc and Andrea took out the darling Knotty. Friends Clint and Shawnee joined the fun. I am reminded how blessed Mark and I are to enjoy such relaxing and wonderful times together at beautiful Milford Lake.

Blessing to all.
