Our Slate of Officers for 2012 is as follows:
Commodore : Deborah Champion
Vice Commodore: Max Vinson
Purser: Alan Cannon
Race Chair: Doug Roberts
Yardmaster: Bill Miller
Scribe: Gary Guss
Social Chair: Rob Hatcher
Noted: Herb Siewert mentioned that he was opposed to people serving more than one consecutive term as commodore to give others a chance to serve and increase diversity. We agreed in principle however there is a shortage of people willing to take these offices. The slate was voted on and passed by the board.
Finally Lee Huddleston thanked Gary Reimer for his work with the Trashmaster’s and mentioned that this was a great help to the club in dealing with the Corp of Engineers. Thanks Gary for a job well done as the Yardmaster also these past years.
