Lake Granby Yacht Club
Hardwater Regatta Annual Meeting
April 12, 2014 at the home of Mike and Cheryl Leidich
Commodore Gary Silverman called the meeting to order. A motion was made to accept the minutes from the 2013 meeting. The motion was passed.
Matt Brown from Indian Peaks Marina gave an update on the status of the marina. The marina is in the process of being sold to an owner from Louisiana and should close within a few weeks. Matt will manage the marina this year and many of the staff from last year will be returning. The new owner plans to renovate the facilities at the marina and perhaps build some new facilities.
Gary thanked last years’ officers for their efforts. He also thanked the members who organized the parties.
Last summer the club took 11 young people from Knights of Heroes sailing for the day. This is a summer program for young people who have lost a parent in Iraq or Afghanistan. The day was a great success in spite of the rainy weather. The club plans to do this again this year.
Gary talked about Community Sailing. The club is accepting donations to support their program.
Terry reported that the checking balance on 12/31/13 was $5024.96. This is $160.64 less than we had at the start of 2013. In 2012 we had 21 full members and 3 social members. In 2013 we had 16 full members and 4 social members. Considering the drop in membership our finances still look good. This year we will hopefully add some new members.
It was agreed that we can purchase a new buoy to replace mark #5.
There was a discussion about the Manifest Trophy. It was decided that a new member to the club would be eligible to win the race and be awarded a permanent trophy. For a new member to keep the traveling trophy for the year that member would have to pay dues in full and then sail at least 1 race in a series or serve as committee for a race.
