One of the hazards of raising children is when they learn to turn that guilt around.
And this is how it comes to be that Emily and I will be doing the 'Walk for Hunger'
this year. Now I must tap into my inner NPR and ask for pledges. Is this a flagrant
abuse of the power and privilege entrusted to me as your commodore? Well, as MYC
Commodore I have no real power, and this Corner is my only privilege. So yes, it is.
I can live with that. So if you are not already burnt out on the walk-for-every-good-cause
appeals, please consider this one. Of course I wont hold it against you if you decline.
But I might remember, the next time we meet on the race course, (because you've already
lapped us at least once), that my boat is built quite robustly and is absolutely unsinkable.
Is yours? Just askin'

Snow, We've had enough. If it helps, remember that the snow pack replenishes
our waters for drinking and sailing. That said, despite the lingering cold, its
almost time to clean up, open up, and get out on the water.
I think this late snow and cold has helped build the anticipation for the coming season.
The Lasar's are being gracious and letting the sunfish crash (may participate is better!)
the saturday afternoon party. We've got a full racing and social schedules ready to go
with food, moonlight, movies all in the mix.
Did you know that the commodore get's snail mail, and not just spam? I didn't
either. But I was given this surprise packet from our friends at US Sailing. Turns
out that our own 62nd Annual Regatta was nominated for the 'US Sailing One-Design
Regatta Award' for 2012. No, we didn't win this time. But this is our Oscars, and
it truly is an honor be nominated. Once again our lttle 300+ acre puddle has put on
a world class event. And although we don't do it for the rewards, it is undeniably nice
to get recognized once in a while for all that hard work. Kudos again to Diane Kampf
and the team she so expertly leads. And a little to us too, for we all pitch in, and contribute
to the environment and spirit that make this, and everything at the club possible
And in that spirit, I look forward to seeing you all at the work party. And then on the lake.
