the information, noting the gaps where we have missing history and
preparing the newly organized piles for electronic capture. Catherine
Holt, Cynthia Hagar, John Diggins, Ralph Capen and Jim Crittendon
are these brave souls. If you have a stach of old regatta results,
pictures, newspaper clippings, tec. That might add to this archive
project, the team would love to hear from you. The material will
be returned once copied. They would also like to give credit to
the donors. Ultimately wed like to make this projects
product accessible to all members.

SPRUCE-UP AND SPLASH-DAY
Thanks to everyone who came, worked and then worked some more.
We had an excellent turn-out and beautiful weather for Spruce-up
Day. Greta Mittman reported 60 members signed as participants on
Spruce-up Day. Windows were cleaned, lavatories were cleaned, electrical
work was done, the committee boat davit cover was replaced, and
a whole lot of other work was done to make our club more enjoyable.
Special thanks are due to John Payne and Tom Forgue and the C-15
Fleet for hosting Splash-day with lots of great grilled burgers
and fixings. Folks caught the fiery aroma of burgers and surrendered.

project. Projects next in line are widening the North Gate,
replacing walkway to VIP, replacing walkway from the PIG
to new davits and replacing the walkway out to the ladder.
