Just a heads up that we’ll be having our spring work party this Saturday. Long time members all know the drill, but for the new folks:
The Spring Work Party is our big setup event for the club, where we try to do all (or at least most) of the work necessary to make the ASC ready for the sailing season. These tasks include setting up and repairing docks, cleaning the grounds, launching boats, etc.
As you can tell from the picture below (TL Stanbro took this one today) things are progressing a bit slowly this year. So we’re going to defer some of our larger build projects (new docks and the trailer row electrical upgrade) until we have firmer ground.
For this to happen, we need a strong membership turnout. If we can be there for the whole event (10:00 AM until 4:00 PM-ish), that’s great, but if you can spare even a few hours, we’d still love the help. When you arrive, look for Cathy Wright. She’s the “keeper of the clipboard” and will help match you with jobs based on your skills and interests. If you haven’t met Cathy yet, her picture is below:
Following is a Google document with a list of tasks for the work party:
This is an evolving document, but the current version should give you a good idea of what we need to get done on Saturday. And items you should bring include:
- Work gloves
- Rain gear, if necessary
- Cordless drill/drivers (and batteries) if you have one
Thanks, everybody! Looking forward to seeing you out there.
