Open House, Social, Thursdays of Thunderscoop1968

This summer is just flying past! Just a few items to update members on as we approach the end of the season.CLUB REGATTA & POTLUCK: The club will be hosting its annual club championships, along with a potluck dinner, on Aug. 23. The racing will begin at 1, with dinner starting around 6. The day should be a great opportunity to have fun on the water, and socialize with your fellow club members. The divisions this year are: Masters; U-19; U-17; U-15; U-13; U-11. Categories are: Open Kayak (K-1, K-2); Baumier Kayak; Outrigger Canoe; Canoe (C-1, C-2); SUP. We will be racing Open, Women, and Mixed (for team boats). In order to try and make the day as orderly as possible, please email Commodore Scoop at if you intend to race so we can develop a start list. We will also need volunteers to assist with marshaling, timing, starting, and safety boat. You can also email to advise what you will be bringing for the potluck. OPEN PADDLE: Did you know the club is open most weekday evenings from 5:30 until 7, and on Sundays from 4 until 6? It's a great opportunity hang out at the boathouse, and maybe try out a boat that you might not otherwise paddle. The commodore's challenge to members this month is to come out at least one night a week through August, other than a dragon boat practice, in order to get out on the water. Remember - it's your club. Make the most of your membership! WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOUR CLUB IN THE FUTURE?: The board of directors will have an opening this fall; as we head towards our Annual General Meeting later this year, we want to encourage our members to consider stepping up and working with the board. It doesn't even need to be a directorship; the club is always looking for its members to volunteer to organize social activities, and help with communications. The next time you're at the boathouse, feel free to chat with a director about how you might like to help out the club!
