Important News and Upcoming Events:

The Hiram Douglas Regatta is Sunday, Nov. 6.

See the Notice of Regatta for particulars and the schedule. The Sailing Instructions are also attached. We’re very happy to have Becky Archibald back as Principal Race Officer. Please sail or come out to join the fun. There will be breakfast snacks ready, and sandwiches for the racers (it’s a long distance race).
Awards and the highly competitive Chili Cook-Off follow the race. Lorrie is coordinating the Cook-Off and needs to know if you are bringing a chili, or cornbread, salad, side, or dessert. Email lorrieslydog@gmail.com
I still need more help for the safety boats and a couple for the committee boat. Please email par2058@yahoo.com or call 405-250-2093.
