From the Helm

June 2020

For those of you who have not caught my YouTube update, here are some of my comments:

Financials: We have just finished our membership renewals and they came in right on budget. Based on what’s going on in our world right now, it’s no surprise our annual sponsor support came up short compared to last year. Fortunately, we have put money away each year for a rainy day, and that day is here. Be assured we do have more than sufficient funds to carry on and we intend to do so.

June Tournaments: We will run our June tournaments in some form. The Kayak Tournament is June 6th and the weigh-in will be at Genung’s Fish Camp. Look for more specifics further on in this Chum Line. The Surf Tournament is still a little up in the air as far as the weigh-in location is concerned, but will be a go on June 20. That flyer is in here as well. Check our website and your email for the latest information.

July Activities: We fully expect to be back at the VFW for our July meeting and plan on having a welcome back celebration, if possible. The July meeting is also for the election of club officers, so please make sure you attend, and be ready to vote for the best candidates. Our Kids Clinic, which is typically held in July has been moved to October, so keep your eyes open, as more information is to come.

It sure looks like we are getting back into some form of normalcy, but let’s not get too carried away. Social distancing, masks or buffs still need to be used when suggested, and we will continue to be guided by our governors’ directives. The VFW and the county will have requirements as well, and I expect club members to follow them to the letter to keep everyone safe.

See you all on the water.
