We've just past our 3rd anniversary of using this blog as our club newsletter! Here's a reprint from the last 2006 issue of The Sheet to help keep those creative posting juices flowing.

The Importance of a Newsletter - Collectively, using this new format we'll have a more vibrant, interesting and timely publication. That's the power of a group blog.

But what do I write about you say? Whatever strikes your fancy -
  • What do you feel when you sail?
  • What are some of your favorite lake experiences?
  • What did you learn last weekend about boat handling, sail trimming, start tactics or mark roundings?
  • What is your favorite type of sailboat?
  • What is your most memorable sailing experience?
  • Favorite sailing vacation.
  • New ideas for fun events and races at the club, e.g. last year's Pirate Race.
  • Potluck themes (I think we definitely have this one covered! ed.)
  • Cool sailing links you've found on the web.
  • America's Cup and Olympic Sailing events. (Nice work on the Buc Nationals coverage ed.)
