ENTERTAINMENT AND PUBLICITY
MAY 1ST FRIDAY FIESTA
Cool, steady breezes make sailing in May an absolute delight. Weve
had fun at the Clubhouse, too, beginning with our First Friday celebration,
Margaritas & Mariachis fiesta in honor of Cinco
de Mayo. The weather was fine, and with wonderful help and a good
turnout, it was a success! The evening featured the 6-man troupe,
Mariachis los Monarcas, who entranced our audience with
their melodic tunes, with the lake and sunset in the background.
It was truly a memorable experience. We hope more of you will come
to our next First Friday... more about that coming up!

BUTTERFLY WRANGLE REGATTA
For 35 years, the Butterfly Fleet has held its annual WRANGLE REGATTA.
While it has been a Butterfly event for all of those years, the
Lasers joined us 3 years ago, making it bigger and better. This
year, the regatta will take place on June 12th and 13th. The registration
begins on Saturday at 8:30 with the skippers meeting at 9:30. The
first warning signal will be at 10:30, or whenever the committee
decides it should be.
The entry fee is $20.00 for Butterflys and Lasers. For Radials
full rigged Butterflys and Lasers with a skipper that will not have
his 20th birthday in 2004, the fee is $15.00
Fees include lunch on Saturday and a continental breakfast on
Saturday and Sunday.
The Butterfly Fleet has 2 boats that can be used if you want to
us but do not have a boat. These will be on a first come, first
serve basis. So, come and race with us. The Wrangle is always a
lot of fun.
If you have any questions, call me at 214-368-5797 or email me at
FOR THE LOVE OF THE LAKE (FTLOTL)
For the Love of the Lakes Annual Volunteer Appreciation Night
is Saturday, June 26, 2004 at 5:30. We will need sailors and their
sailboats to take the volunteers out on the lake so they too can
enjoy White Rock Lake from the water rather than the shoreline.
FTLOTL throws a great party with good food and drinks! If you have
any questions or want to volunteer your time and boat to a good
group and a fun party, please contact Lauri Block.
MEMBER SERVICE REQUIREMENT REMINDER
At the CSC Annual Business Meeting held on January 15th, 2004 at
Royal Oaks Country Club, a By-Laws addition was approved that encourages
involvement by all club members in club activities. As an all-volunteer
organization, without any paid staff, we depend entirely on our
membership to keep the club afloat and functioning. The By-Laws
change defines a minimum service requirement that has been set at
8 hours for 2004 and applies to each regular and associate membership.
This requirement may be fulfilled by the member, or the member's
spouse or dependents.
To assist the membership in fulfilling this requirement, projects,
such as helping with Spruce-Up Day, special club regattas or social
events, cleanup or special construction tasks, will be identified
in our club newsletter, The Mainsheet. In addition, a new Help Wanted
forum will be added to our website where requests for assistance
may be posted.
How will this be administered? It is each member's responsibility
to seek out opportunities to serve the club. As part of next year's
(2005) membership renewal, each member will be asked to state that
they have fulfilled the service requirement or remit a fee in lieu
of having performed the service. The Board has set that fee at $100
for this year.
· The member Service Requirement may be fulfilled through
participation in any of the following activities:
· Helping with club sponsored work days, shoreline cleanup
or improvement projects
· Assisting in a club sponsored sailing education program
· Serving on race committee duty for club sponsored regattas
· Helping with club sponsored social events
· Participating on a Board of Director's committee
· Completing other activities approved by a club officer
Your Board wants to actively involve each of you in the club's
activities, for your enjoyment as well as the club's benefit. In
many cases paying a $100 fee may seem the lesser of payment when
compared to an eight-hour service requirement. We understand some
members may elect to submit $100 rather than become more actively
involved. This is a fee, not a penalty, and no stigma is associated
with a member's choice to elect cash over service. We look forward
to seeing more folks involved and sharing in the benefit each of
us will see.
