This has truly been a unique year. My apologies for not providing a monthly newsletter this year. We will improve on that next year.
Membership: Although our active fleet membership is down this year compared to previous years, we understand that the pandemic has kept many away from the racecourse. Thank you for staying safe. Despite the downturn in participation, our fleet has maintained roughly 800 active certificates. You've done a fine job of keeping both handicapping boards busy with new boats, rating appeals and renewals.
2021 Executive Committee Position Election: If you would like to volunteer to be on the executive committee, please let our past president John Blais know so your name can be added to the ballot (email@example.com).
Annual Meeting: Our annual meeting will be held mid November somewhere around the mid-way point. Our secretary, Glenn Harvey, is working on a venue where we can keep socially distant and safe. We will also have a dial-in option for delegates who can't or would prefer not attending in person. If you have a topic to discuss or to vote on, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 28th of October so we can include it in the agenda.
Be sure to congratulate and thank Lin McCarthy for all the research, preparation and distribution of the 1000th weekly Southern Bay News You Can Use free newsletter (email@example.com). That's a long time to dedicate time and effort to our sport. Lin, thank you!!
Thank you all for your continued membership in PHRF of the Chesapeake Bay.
See you on the racecourse,
