Docks launch was a 5 of 5

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

Anything loose around the mast storage area, rail system, winch house, parking lot, Heritage building needs to go to highest ground.

All use of electricity in the Yard will be disconnected and preparation for flooding on the following starts today, Saturday April 20, on:
– Heritage building
– the gallows
– the rail system
– winch house

More information coming in a newsletter to all members.

Statements are finally up to date April 12, 2019

Member invoicing, payments and bills are up to date as of April 12, finally. And all of this is reflected in the statements now in the binder. Those that have made payments over the last 3 month despite the paperwork not in place are to be commended – job well done.
Thank you!

But because we are months behind in cashflow, everyone is urged to visit the club, get their statements and pay as soon as possible.

Freshet 2019

Looks like water levels are starting to rise in the Saint John and KV areas. The end of the week looks like flood stage in accordance with RiverWatch NB.

You can check updates to flood alerts at this link, which is also on our website.

River Watch NB

Now is the time to make your boats ready for what ever. Boats on trailers (Hansen) and trailers must be ready to move, which may be out of the yard to nearby parking lots. This will provide for working space should it be required. Shrink wrap and tarps should be removed, and removed from the yard, as soon as possible to allow for boat launches or trailering should the need arise.

Your cooperation is of the upmost importance.

By request of the Vice-Commodore, Ralph Hines
