Commodore’s Report

Things remain busy in the off-season, planning for the next season! As of this writing, our 2019 billing cycle is almost closed out and our renewals are up by more than $7,000. That’s a testament to the membership and orientation volunteers and Quick Start instructors who welcome our new members so graciously (approximately thirty new members this year). It’s also a tribute to all the committee chairs, trip leaders and planners and instructors who have kept our calendar full of activities and gotten people out on the water in kayaks, canoes, sailboats and sculls, both at Jamaica Bay and at the lake. And we wouldn’t have collected any money without the efforts of those who generated and tracked invoices, reviewed work hours and helped to resolve any open invoices. So, thank you all – I am looking forward to finalizing budgets and planning our next on-water season over the next few months.

Vice Commodore’s Report December 2018

2018 has largely been a year of maintenance, which seems sometimes to be never ending. We made substantial progress on the painting of our storage sheds, finishing all but one on the path side, and many on the driveway side. We had good, dedicated crews on the prep and paint detail, spread over the year’s warm months. Both the CCNY and NYU concrete canoe teams came out on separate weekends to prep and paint containers in canoe alley, and to help out with other tasks as well. Thanks everyone! We’ll do our best to finish up the painting next spring.
