Important events ahead…

Our 2012 season is on its final leg with three final scheduled dates. Please put these on your calendars!
Final regular season regatta: Saturday, October 20th
Interclub Regatta with Lake Townsend Yacht Club: Saturday, November 10th
Year-end members banquet and awards: Saturday evening, November 17th
We have 21 new member families who joined OHSC in 2012, and we hope as many of our membership as possible will be able to join the fun for these final three events of 2012. More details will be sent out for each of these events as details are finalized by the board and committees.
Following are some special invitations (requests for help):
Inter-club regatta on November 10th at Oak Hollow Lake: (We host this year’s regatta). We have contacted one past member and also have one current member committed to help with scoring of the races. We could use some additional organizational help on that date from anyone who doesn’t plan to sail in the event, but who would like to participate in the event. The inter-club regatta typically draws between 20 and 30 sailboats from the two clubs, and is a fun day to socialize and race with our neighboring sailing club. OHSC will be trying to take back the trophy that has been held for several years by LTYC. Please let me know if you are available to help us with our hosting and scoring duties for this event.
Last weekend we completed the teaching of the 2012 HPU Sailing Class. Special thanks go out to Nancy Valego for another successful year of providing the instruction and coordinating the efforts. Thank you also to all the members who volunteered their time on the Saturdays from August 25th to October 6th, to assist with the on-the-water instruction.
We should have a few good sailing dates left in October, and we still have a few new members who would like to get some basic instruction. We need some of our experienced sailors who could volunteer a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday in October, to assist with this training. Please let me know if you are available to help with this, and on what dates in October you could be available (Oct. 13, 14, 21, 27, 28).
