January Meeting

The January 7 meeting begins with a potluck at 6:30 p.m., and the meeting starts at 7:30. Since we did not have a quorum for December meeting, we will have our annual election of officers at the January meeting. We will also vote on an amendment to the by-laws changing our meeting time from 7:30 to 7:00 on the first Tuesday of the month.

As a reminder, the slate of officers nominated for 2014 is as follows:

Commodore Tom Schulz
Vice Commodore Mike Firari
Rear Commodore Judith McQuerry
Secretary Laura Murph
Trustee Jim Dahl

Treasurer Bill Tatsuda will continue into the second year of his term; Jerry Cegelski will continue in the position of vice commodore.

See you there!

New Years Day Brunch!

The Ketchikan Yacht Club will be open for brunch New year’s day with hot food available at 9:00 am. If you don’t trust the trustees cooking, feel free to bring your own dish, but there will be plenty of food. There will also be champagne, but otherwise, BYOB.

See you on News Year for Brunch and football.

flag_commodoreMeeting Times

For the past two months the monthly potluck and membership meetings have started somewhat earlier than usual.  The consensus of folks present at the November 5th meeting was that the earlier time is more convenient and allows more time to conduct meeting business.

Therefore, the commodore has changed the normal potluck time to 6:00 p.m., and the regular membership meetings will start at 7:00 p.m.  This posting on the website is the notification to membership as required by KYC bylaws.
