Commodore’s View for JUNE 2014
View from cooler waters
By Deedy Payne, 2014 LPSC Commodore
We made it! Congratulations LPSC! You might think that I am referring to making it to triple digits here in the Valley, but we all know that is not such a big deal for June. What we did make was our goal of adding 25 new members since September. We didn’t quite make the date of May 5th (Cinco de Mayo) which was the goal set by the Membership Committee, but did we did get 25 new members by Memorial Day. This is a huge accomplishment for our club. Now the challenge is to retain these new members and gear up for the Fall Season to recruit even more members! Thank you to all who have participated in the Sunday Sails. This monthly event has been a great success and it is the primary reason we have brought in new members. Our SAIL AZ public Meet Up site has over 50 members. People in the Valley who are interested in sailing in the desert go on Meet Up and look for things that interest them. SAIL AZ is the way we attract them to sailing on Lake Pleasant and we then get the chance to tell them about the club when they come out for a sail. There are many of you who volunteer to take people sailing on the last Sundays of the month and we appreciate your generosity of sharing your love of sailing and your boat with others. LPSC members, you too are welcome to come out and go for a sail. Look to sign up on Meet Up for the September sail. Mark the last Sunday of the month starting in September and come join us.
Although the heat is here, we all look forward to some of the best LPSC events of the year! In July many of us are headed to Catalina Island July 12-19. Be sure to continue to check the Meet Up postings to let us know your plans and see what others are up to regarding this annual sail. There are tons of fun activities lined up that week and the cooler weather off the coast is only one of the reasons so many of us view this as our favorite cruise of the year. Thank you to Tim and Rhonda Brewer for all their hard work organizing this spectacular event.
August 15 – 17 LPSC members will be headed to the cooler White Mountains to relax and party and COOL OFF. Fool’s Hollow Lake will be the location of the Beat the Heat weekend. Again, check Meet Up for the details. Carolyn and Mike Cronin are leading this pilgrimage to cooler temps. We hope you can join us.
I wish you the best this summer from a cooler climate. Doug and I are in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin enjoying the cool temps and looking forward to sailing our Freedom 21 on this beautiful midwest lake. This has been our summer getaway for 40+ years.
Stay cool and sail on!
