June is here and boating season has begun for many of us. I am still in the process of trying to get our calendar of events filled with fun for everyone. Our Vice Commodore Dan is working on a fun outing for everyone, Fleet Captain Jon has a few ideas that he is working on also. We have some great ideas and if anyone has any ideas or would like to take charge of an event we would love to give you the opportunity.
In May, I had the greatest honor to help my parents with their Diamond Queen fundraiser and I must say that it was a beautiful night on the water and so many wonderful people in attendance. After our fun on the boat ride a few of us ventured over to Whiskey’s on the Water to reminisce about the evening we had. Also, had the honor to represent West River along with Vice Commodore Dan and P/C Charlie at Opening of the Port held at Maumee River Yacht Club. Unfortunately due to weather conditions the boat ride wasn’t able to happen, but we still managed to have fun boat hoping and visiting people. It is a great feeling to be back visiting with friends and family again!
Many of you know that it’s that time of year to register for I-LYA Powerboat Regatta. For many of us who have attended the Regatta it is a blast, for those who have not attended there are events and activities for everyone of all ages. In years past we have had to honor to have held the title for most participation points and volunteer points for a club. I would be so proud if we were able to pull one of these off again. As you know my dad (Captain Bob) is the I-LYA Commodore this year, my parents chose West River to be their home club (WHAT AN HONOR). Let us all show Commodore Bob and Lady Bobbi our support and make plans to attend the I-LYA Power Boat Regatta. No need for a boat, they have plenty of cottages, hotels and B&B’s on the Island. Please sign up and be part of this magnificent event! Click on the link to register today! //form.123formbuilder.com/5873055/form
