March 15th is Just Around the Corner
What is just around the corner? 

The March 15th ABYC General Membership Meeting, Saint Patrick's Day Dinner AND presentation by the Stars + Stripes USA Sailing Team Manager, that's what! 

The General Membership Meeting will tell you all about what's happening at ABYC. 

The Saint Patrick's Day Dinner will tickle the fancy of any Leprechaun. 

And, the Stars+Stripes USA Sailing Team Presentation - preparing for the America's Cup - well, you just don't want to miss it. 

One caution, we ran out out of dinners last year. So, please make your dinner reservations as soon as possible so that we can prepare an ample Irish treat for all who would like to partake. 

Mark your calendars for May Raft Up :

You all know my heart is with our Juniors and all that they 'grow' into for ABYC and the community around us. I love posting pictures of them, competing in regattas, first day of school, away at college or the like. This week I've got a little secret. One of our club members, Marilyn Spencer sits on the Advisory Board for a charity called Chubby Cheeks, Int'l. Chubby Cheeks gives food and health aid to people in need around the world. This is no ordinary organization! It was founded by Marilyn's grandson Connor, who's 14 years old. I met with Connor last week to learn of his endeavor and walked away in complete AWE of this young man. I know how important Juniors are to this club. And I am thankful that we show appreciation for all they do, whether it's sailing, academics or something else. So, I'm bragging on Connor and the efforts he is making to change the world. If you are a runner, walker or just want more information on his upcoming March 10th Chubby Cheeks Charity Pi Run... here's the website: Chubby Cheek's Charity Pi Run !

Here's a big ABYC Congratulations to Marilyn, Winston and all the other "Spencers"! You've got quite a young man there!

I f you've got something out of the ordinary... send it my way!
Happy Wednesday ABYC Sailors!
