Hello Everyone,

We are nearing our Annual Fleet Meeting on October 14th at 6:00 at PYC.  We hope to have many fleet members attend, but do require at least one representative from each boat to be present.

One of the items that will be discussed is the nominations of new officers.  As of right now these are the people, their position, and whether they would like to continue:

Molly White-Fleet Captain               Wishes to Continue
Stephanie Helms-Race Committee    Wishes to Continue
Shelly Paules-Treasurer                   Wishes to Continue
Tony Jessen-Fleet Historian              Wishes to Continue
Mark Klein-Fleet Photographer         Unknown
Nick Dambrie-Travel Coordinator/Rear Captain         Unknown

It looks like most of the positions are willing to continue but if you would like to nominate another individual, it would be wonderful to have a person in the fleet to send nominations to before the meeting so that we can have a clear discussion and decision making process.  If any of you would be willing to head up that process, I would greatly appreciate it.  Please email me at and let me know.  I will forward that information on to the fleet.  This job basically requires gathering names and reading them off at the meeting for a vote.

If no one volunteers, please feel free to send nominations to me.

Thanks again.
