Commodore’s Corner

Happy New Year and greetings to all mates of the POYC. If you were in attendance for the Commodore’s Reception you know a good time was had by all; and if not I hope to see you next year. Around forty sailors gathered at our house for the festivities that served as the January meeting.
We were glad to see Carol and Frank Kersting back among the ranks as they took a respite from their work in the Ukraine, and they vowed to return late next fall. Kudos to these two who have begun their retirement in an effort to help others rather than thinking of themselves. I admire them and look forward to getting them back on the water with us.
Yes the winter is long but before you know it we will be back at the yard and out on the lake. The 2010 schedule is in the bag and here are the upcoming events coming your way.
Due to the lack of attendance and interest I have witnessed the last three years we will forego a club meeting in February and instead the Executive Board will meet in a planning session.
On the social front Past Commodore Herb Siewert has graciously invited all mates to a Super Bowl party at his home. The address is 2011 Barberry Ct which is just off 31-w just south of WKU in Bowling Green.
We will return to the lake for the March meeting on Friday 3/12. As usual we will gather for a potluck dinner at 6 pm with the meeting to follow around 7. Bring a side dish, bread or dessert and come on out to get our year at the club started off right. Our first work party at the yard is slated for Saturday 3/20 and will begin at 10 am. These parties are always as much fun as they are work and I hope to see as many mates out as possible.
The full schedule will be published soon but I will announce that the Blessing of the Fleet will take place Saturday May 1, and that we will take to the water for the Huddleston Cup on May 29/30th.
So as you can see although the season may seem distant we are actually ready to roll.
Any and all mates with info or questions fell free to contact me at 270-792-3728 or at our web address Since I am still trying to catch up with the nineties a phone call my be a quicker medium. Hope to see you at the super Bowl Party and I look forward to a successful campaign in 2010!
Commodore Bill Miller
