Important, Please note: The power bill for the yard has been found to be about 4 times higher than normal. Please check your boats to make sure that there are not heaters or other appliances that could be using a lot of electricity. The executive will be going through the yard with a Watt meter to locate and disconnect any boats with excessive current draws. This was determined to be both a safety issue as well as an economic one. Battery chargers on 2 amps are ok. Using power for a heater while you are on board working is ok.
Committee Chairs: At the February executive meeting we will be appointing individuals to chair various committees. If you are interested or would like to recommend someone to a particular position please submit names now to a member of the Executive.
Social: A Valentines event is being planned. Saturday evening the 16th of February. 5:30 happy hour 6:30 dinner. Watch for updates.
