FRIDAYS AT FIVE A SUCCESS

First Two Events Yield Big Turnout; Next Two Fun for Attendees, Too

With two similar events scheduled for February, the “Fridays at Five” parties at the Club on January 7 and 21 were a big success, according to folks on hand for each.

The January 7 event featured beer, wine and soft drinks, along with appetizers prepared by the Breakwater Restaurant and brought by several First Mates. About 50 members attended.

Then on January 21, another event was held, equally successful, and equally FREE. Joe Coons hosted the first event, Dick Johnson the second.

The February 4 and 18th Fridays at Five will follow the same format, so put the dates on your calendar now!

February 4 is hosted by Jack Black and Tom Selman, with a program about “having a big boat built”.

February 18 will be hosted by the First Mates; holding, among other things, a “50-50” raffle. It will be fun!

BYC Sails in Sugar Bowl

Although it might be better known for its collegiate football championship, the Nokia Sugar Bowl also hosts a collegiate sailing regatta.

BYC member Shannon Ross and Tacoma Yacht Club sailor Alexi Lussonov represented WWU in the Junior Varsity competition in New Orleans in December. Ross skippered her boat to fourth place over all and brought home a trophy to add to Western's collection.

Way to go Shannon!

BYC ROOF REPLACED OVER HOLIDAYS

After years of leaks and temporary repairs by the Club and its restaurant tenants (especially Mike Minge, who worked hard to keep the water out), the BYC has a new roof!

In November 1999 the Board of Trustees affirmed the decision to proceed, and Past Commodore Chuck McCord was assigned the task of supervising the work which was undertaken by Fiddler Roofing, a local contractor. The work was virtually complete by New Years' Day.

The flat roof refurb was done using the “torchdown” method, and now should last us for years!

Olsons, Fire Belle Cited

Dan and Bunny Olson, long time members (he's a Past Commodore of the BYC) were recognized in a ceremony at the Friday at Five on January 7. After 45 years of continuing Club service, the Olsons were presented with a plaque by Commodore Steve Moore that highlighted their remarkable involvement in the BYC, with Dan long serving as our “Judge Advocate”, a navy term which in reality for us means “Free Lawyer”!

Commenting on the award, Bunny said that the Club has been a great part of their life: Friends, fun, and a focus for their off-hours activities. Dan and Bunny are still active sailors in Dandy, their 34' Cal sloop. Neat people.

At the same event, the skipper and crew of the Bellingham Fire Department's Fire Belle fireboat were presented with the Lighted Boat Parade Community Service Award for their great work in the community. Citing the crew (and the boat's great Christmas decorations, too), Commodore Steve pointed out that no marine-related organization could equal our community's fire fighters for making a real difference in Bellingham, or our safety in and around the water. There's no question that the recognition was well placed. Congratulations!

Predicted Log Race 2/19

The Bremerton Yacht Club is sponsoring their annual Heavy Weather Navigation Contest on Saturday, February 19. The event kicks off Friday with refreshments at 1730 hours followed by a casual meal and dancing; on Saturday, the racing events run from 0900-1510, with entertainment activities from 1500-after midnight. Sunday breakfast begins at 0800, with awards presented at 1045.

For more information, contact Past Commodore Leo Longnecker, Regatta Chair for Power, at (360) 692-0963.

Predicted log racing involves careful planning of a pre-determined course with the goal of exactly estimating run times for each leg, and the winner is the skipper who has the lowest percentage of error in seconds compared to his total run time.

Remember the Lifering Program?

Have You Sent In Your Gift/Pledge?

These cash contributions total over $14,000 so far, as Members of the BYC send in cash and fulfill over $22,000 in pledges to date. Each reduction in the principal lowers the interest we're paying, too, giving us more money for Club programs in the years to come. Your Lifering contributions will go directly to extra principal reduction of the debt on our building mortgage.

THANKS to each donor so far! Now it's your turn. You'll be recognized on the plaque depending on your gift of $100 or more . . . Although many members are choosing just to send in money anonymously. After your gift is received, you'll get an acknowledgement from Rear Commodore Karen Callery who chairs this fund-raising program.

Clip & Mail to: Treasurer, Bellingham Yacht Club,
2625 Harbor Loop, Bellingham, WA 98225 USA

I want the Club to serve boaters and prosper, and I will contribute $ ________ to the Lifering program.
