This week we turned off the water and filled the water lines with rv antifreeze. Pink in color and is not for Human consumption and will be flushed from the lines next spring. No flushing till spring!
We just completed our Fall workparty this weekend, thanks to all who came out and helped get the club ready for winter. We had about 10 people and 7 kinds of chili, all of which went down easy. We were lucky to have great weather to work in.

This was an eventful year, with a lot of Capital projects: We redid the septic system, replumbed the head and entire waterline, bought a chase boat and added the Arrrr Lounge. We also added a router for Wifi at the dock and generally spruced the place up. Next year we would like to add a boat lift to the lower yard, which has been a long time dream to help people work on their boats. Thanks to all the officers and members for their hard work this year!
We elected a new slate of Officers for 2016:
Rob Hatcher – Commodore
Bill Miller – Vice Commodore
Alan Cannon – Purser
Doug Roberts – Racing Chair
Gary Guss – Scribe
Steve Stahl – Yardmaster
Frank & Carol Kersting – Social Chair
Don’t forget to attend our Christmas party on December 5th, 6:30PM at Cambridge Market for $25/person..
Details will be coming soon on the Commodores reception in January.

The 2015 Great Minnow is ‘in the books. There was excellent membership participation with 8 cruisers and 3 dinghies registering for the 2-day regatta. On Saturday, the northerly winds were constant at 9 MPH which was excellent for racing but made holding the committee boat in position problematic. Needless to say, it was an ‘eventful’ day of racing with 5 races started. On Sunday, the winds were the ‘typical’ light and variable type but sufficient for 3 races. The results were:
1. R. Hatcher D.Sturm
2. K. Klarer J. Brownfield
3. L. Huddleston B. Klarer
A large crowd for dinner participated in the festivities, as there was a membership meeting following an eventful day of racing. The sailors were tired but gladly shared ‘tall tales’ with those members joining the crews for dinner.
Here’s a message from our old mate Connie Polk, Connie is living in Savannah and is working to place foreign exchange students in placements all over the US. The following is her letter to me. If you know of a placement please contact her directly:
We have a German boy living in Adair County right now in a temporary placement. He is bored to tears, a very active young man living in the middle of nowhere. The family only agreed to be a temporary home for 8 weeks, and we are now 1/2 way through that. I think he would do great in Bowling Green, if I can find a family and a school to place him in. Do you think you could send out an email to all POYC members about this? Glasgow would be ok, too, just somewhere where he can be more involved in the community. Right now he’s an hour away from anything. If you say it’s ok., I’ll write it up and send it to you. I’ll probably also post on the FB page, but I think an email will reach more people. I placed 3 of my kids here through my 2 sailing clubs! One is going to be sailing in a regatta at the USCG Academy next month!!!
