Spring Dinner will be April 3 at the Vallejo Yacht Club. Happy Hour starts at 5 with a no-host bar and hors d'oeuvres followed by a chicken based dinner at 6. Cost will be about $8/ person. Ann Gilleran will send out info on the dinner seperately with the annual dues notice. If you have some old sailing gear you'd like to get rid...., er, donate, Ann thinking about holding a raffle to raise funds for our ever-depleted treasury. For more info, call Ann at 707-257-8106 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Cruises: Two opportunities in July. First is the Fourth of July fireworks over the Vallejo Channel. Cruise to the Vallejo Yacht Club, join up with other Tritons, Music, Barbeque at the Yacht Club. Story goes that this worked out great last year and Tom Newton is going to make it even better this year. Call Tom at 707-552-2325 (or 557-2291) or email email@example.com
Second July Cruise is to the Plastic Classic on July 17. Anchor in close to the Bay View Boat Club and get a lift from one of the water taxis that flit about. A great time. More info in the June newsletter.
Andy Shepard is thinking that we should meet and raft up off McNear's Beach on Saturday, October 2. Then itís a free for all to the beach in whatever watercraft we can scrounge up. A barbecue and general revelry will then ensue followed by an exodus back to the boats at sundown. Those hardy souls that can actually sleep on a Triton can stay the night, while the others have the option of a short sail back home. Andy's looking for any input on this, especially whether the date is OK. If you have any comments or suggestions please contact him, firstname.lastname@example.org (916)487-1248. He'd like to firm this up by the spring dinner.
And how about something on, like, May 15 or after the race on May 22? E-mail me, Larry Suter, email@example.com . 925-443-8952 works, too.
