Melissa and I went up to the Club on Sunday to see how the boats faired from all the high winds. Everything looked great. We also took a couple of pictures to post on the blog. I remember the other summer when we took a picture of the thermometer reading 90 degrees. It was 15 below on Sunday, and it is still November! Enjoy the pictures.

I'd like to send out a thank-you to all the Committee Chair persons. Committee Chairs attended meetings with the board over the last two weeks to charter their committees and are now working on their plans for the next summer.
We had a very good meeting of the eductation committee today. We are making great progress on this years' adult sailing class and have tentatively decided to sponsor a class for our own ASC teenagers. We also plan to coordinate a sailing day with the Campfire organization.
Thanks again to all the committee chairs. If you are a member and would like to get involved with a committee, contact the committee chairs or a board member and we will get you hooked up.

Our first Tech Help Seminar was a success! We added more bloggers and Google Group members. It was a lot to cover in a short time, but I think everyone came away with new knowledge and the tools to practice with. We can explore more sessions like this in the future and target more specifics, if needed.
I’ll be sending invites to our Google Calendar to those that don’t already have them. This invitation will allow you make event entries and edits on our private calendar, plus see all event details. If all you want to do is view the event time and date, you can ignore the invite and just use our web calendar (below on this November 2006 blog page and soon back on our website’s Library page).

Handy with woodworking? Want a cat? Check out these beauties at the 2006 Shark Nationals. There is some amazing craftsmanship on display here, as well as some great racing action photos. We need some shots like these from our racing series! A good, stable chase boat and a long lens is the key.
