The plan is to haul out the gallows , the workboat and reposition the tee-section of the dinghy docks to the South side of the wharf or lee-side beginning @ 4P.M. today. The remaining sections dinghy docks will be quite vulnerable in this projected gale and you would all be wise to consider taking your individual dinghies ashore and out of harm’s way until the weather subsides.

Let the bells ring out and the banners fly, there’s a Launch Party on June 22. So far this year there were only work parties but now there’s a fun party . . . to launch the boating season. Bring a good appetite for lobster or barbequed baby back ribs.
But the social team needs to know your choice of entrée – fresh from the Bay of Fundy lobster or BBQ ribs.
So please reply to this email(it goes to firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 849-7950 and leave a voicemail at the beep indicating your name, how many people will be attending and the choice(s) of entrée. RSVP before Tuesday June 18.
Dock launch drew a great turnout and because the team really worked together just about everything got done (we did run into not enough lag bolts for the cleats, a busted electrical line and water connector).
All in all, 5 out of 5! Gold medal for team launch!
Now I gotta talk to the organizer about getting better preps done … lol
