Hooray Hooray it’s the fifth of May and boating season officially begins today!

I was out sailing with Footloose Sailing on the fifth.  Were you out on your boat?  You should have been, as it was beautiful out for boating.  It was a very enjoyable day and I got my first sunburn of the year.  Yeah!

Ben Lobaugh still has his boat engine in the back of his car and, besides, he was out sailing with Footloose also.  Hopefully he can get his engine back in for the season.  Now is a good time to finish those projects you need to get done before you actually get your boat in motion.

There are lots of things planned for the months of May and June.  Check your emails for evites and notices from Patricia, our cruise chair. Ben Lobaugh and I will be manning a booth at Shilshole Bay on June 9 for “Boatfest.”  We’ll being doing our best to promote our club membership to all who come near our booth.  We have about 500 printed tri-fold brochures to hand out. There should be some left over if you would like a couple to hand out to friends. This next week’s dinner meeting will be the last one until September so come one and all, please.  Hope to see all of you there.  Sure Marine will be giving the presentation for this meeting.  Don’t miss it!  Until September…Happy Boating!
