Commodore’s Blog February 2019

Commodore Keith at Final Friday

We had our first Final Friday of 2019 and attendance was outstanding. Thank you! We had many new members join us that evening for fabulous soup and great libations.

Our next Final Friday is coming up on Feb. 22 at the Community Center. Please join us at 6 pm and meet our new members. This month we are serving the bridge’s savory chili assortment.

No news as of today on the marina acquisition. Nothing to say it is off track. Let’s wait for the news from the DIOA. We will share news when we can. I am expecting a call for work parties after the property closing.

Planning continues on upcoming events – cruises, kayak and fishing trips. Check out the list of events on the DIYC calendar on-line at DIYC Events These events fill up fast so please sign up promptly. Flyers and registration forms for the near term events can be found on-line.

We will be passing out 2019 Yachting Club of America and DIYC membership cards by the end of the month. The cards will include passwords for the membership side of both sites. The member side of the DIYC website will include a membership directory and board minutes.

The board agreed to donate $500 to the Fripp Island Sea Rescue Association based on their service to boaters in our area. We have 3 golf teams competing in their Saint Patty’s tournament in March. We have also been invited to observe their training day(s) with the US Coast Guard and SCDNR at the Fripp Inlet. More on that when we have more details.

Thank you and be safe on the water.
