FROM THE COMMODORE – Chris Cornelissen
Ahoy! So Punxsutawney Phil has spoken and predicted another 6 weeks of winter. Really? I am completely over the winter season of 2013-2014 and am ready for drier, warmer weather. The seemingly endless barrage of rain, snow and ice has me anticipating Opening Day even more this year than in years past.
The 2014 SHYC Fleet Officers have assumed their responsibilities and are hard at work for our members. I am truly fortunate to have a dedicated set of Fleet Officers to work with this year. They are:
Pat Anderson – Vice Commodore
Joe Davenport – Rear Commodore
Pete Moxon – Fleet Captain
Cathy Davenport – Treasurer
Pat DeVine – Secretary
The Fleet Officers met at The Boathouse on December 8 of last year to complete our planning session. We focused on the usual yearly activities of the SHYC, but also allowed for the Fleet Officers to discuss different ideas for upcoming events. The end result was some different things this year for our events that will come to light as the season progresses.
As the Fleet Officers elected by the membership to handle the affairs of SHYC for 2014, we also discussed items and ideas that have either been suggested or presented to various officers. We address each of these items as to how they may affect SHYC and make a decision as a group about how to proceed with whatever item or idea was discussed. Every board member operates transparently during these discussions and the decision-making process. Every board member is also free to discuss our deliberations with our membership when asked.
