Corinthian Sailing Club White Rock
2001Corinthian Sailing ClubWhiteRockLakeDallas,
From the Commodore Fellow Corinthian Sailors -
Well, 2001 is winding down. It is
time to focus on the holiday season and start thinking about next year. In
some smoke filled room amongst the clinking of liquor bottles and swearing, past
commodores are meeting to hammer out a proposed slate of club officers for next
year. After serving on the board for the last few years, my view of the
role of these club officers has changed somewhat. It has become clear, the
board doesn't make the club run, the members do.
Board members are needed
so there are central points for coordination of effort and exchange of
information in specific areas, but the Pier Rear can't nail down every stray
plank and the VC Race can't run every race. What makes an all-volunteer
club like ours work is the steady contributions of the rank and file membership.
It is Alan cleaning up the clubhouse, Mo installing a light, Dave planting
flowers, Lauri making a salad, Bart scaring off an intruder, Lisle giving
a sailing lesson, John coaching some
juniors, Kevin doing race duty, Glen inspecting a davit, Prater reviewing a
letter, and Ed showing up every week to race, Chris taking a picture.
These people all know it isn't writing a check that makes you part of the club,
it is the contribution of time and effort that makes the club yours.
In your planning for
2002, include some time for your club. Your club, and you, will be the
better for it.
See you on the docks - Phil
