Saturday, July 18th is our Second Annual “Blue Chips” Charity Regatta, to benefit cancer research in memory of Nancy Valego. Nancy was a founding and lifetime member of the club who passed away two years ago. For many of our new members who did not know Nancy, her service to the club resulted in our ongoing commitment to teaching sailing. She was responsible for establishing OHSC as the educators for High Point University’s sailing class. That teaching arrangement has provided the club with the opportunity to keep our dues affordable, and keeps us in an ideal position to share our love and knowledge of sailing with young people who may make it a lifelong hobby. What better way to promote our sport!
The club’s board, when establishing this event, also decided to make it a charitable event, by requesting donations toward cancer research as an entrance fee. Checks can be made payable to a local cancer research organization, the “Susan G Komen Foundation” so you will have a receipt of your donation. Regatta t-shirts will be sold with proceeds contributed to cancer research as well.
In order to plan appropriately for breakfast and lunch, please sign up on the scratch sheet below and include your t-shirt size too. If you do not plan to race but will attend, please sign up on the bottom of the scratch sheet with your t-shirt size. Under “Boat”, list NONE so that you can be included in our head count. Volunteers, please list your shirt size, S-XXL next to your name.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Looking forward to seeing you for this worthy cause!
