To: All Oak Hollow Sailing Club Members:
Next week (May 14, through May 20) will be our most exciting (and busy) week of the year! We hope to have as much participation in the following events as each of your schedules’ will allow:
Open House for anyone interested in learning to sail: Tuesday, May 15th, 6:30 p.m. at the Oak Hollow City Marina building (Meeting Room): It’s not too late to invite any of your friends and family members who might like to learn to sail, or who just want to see if they might enjoy it. In the past, word-of-mouth advertising has been the most effective way to get folks to attend the Open House. All of our current members are encouraged to attend so that prospective sailors can meet us and learn about the club, and get a brief introduction to the sport. We will have light snacks and drinks.
Board Meeting: Wednesday, May 16th, 6 p.m. at Barnes and Noble
May Regatta: Saturday, May 19th, North (Sailing) Marina, 10:30 a.m. Captain’s Meeting: We will be inviting attendees at the Open House to join us for this event, so if you need crew, and/or don’t mind guests on your boat, we may have some folks who would like to sail with you.
Fun Day: Sunday, May 20th, North Marina, 11 a.m. until we decide to eat pizza later in the afternoon: This is our opportunity to teach the basics of sailing to interested newcomers. Some might just want to “check it out” to see if they think they will like it – others may already know that they want to learn (and make it a hobby). Last year, we had several people join the club after just taking a sailboat ride with a member. We hope as many of our members as possible can be there for this event – this is our best chance as a club to demonstrate our mission of “promoting and enjoying the sport of sailing”.
