This Month I want to talk about some of the extracurricular activities that our members engage in besides Windsurfing. Our calendar reflects some official events, but I bet some newer members don't know we have folks in our club who are active in Kayaking the local rivers. Also, we have members who have boats that love to go scalloping in August or make a run to the Shoals for a day spent leisurely drinking and enjoying each
other's company about 8 miles offshore. The Shoal is an area where the depth rises to 3 or 4 ft allowing you to stand as you consume your favorite beverage. I believe Wright coined this event as the "Sip and Squirt." SPSC also has a growing group of campers who like to meet and spend a week at the local campgrounds. For many years members of this group would trailer down to the Keys for a week or two. Let's say our group likes to get around. If you have any ideas on activities you would like to see our club try; please email SPSC2@googlegroups.com.
I am glad to announce Rose Lane has offered to head up the Rum and Rootbeer this year; she has put on this event in the past and has been very successful. For newer club members, this is a great way to meet other members. She is looking for volunteers, and if you get the chance, Please join in. It's a lot of fun.
Finally, we would like your thoughts on revitalizing our Monthly general membership meetings. We want to make the arrangements for everyone to attend and maximize our fun quotient! So please come to the meeting this Tuesday to discuss or talk to any board members.
IT'S A WRAP!
On behalf of the Stephen C. Smith Memorial Regatta Foundation and the planning committee (affectionately known as the "SMITHEREENS"), we handed the local chapter of the American Cancer Society a check totaling $25,000!!! As the outgoing chair, I would like to extend my wholehearted and sincere appreciation to all who helped make the 2022 event one of the most successful events! Thank you all for all that you do!
