A Message from the Vice Commodore
I really, really hope that we will have some sort of a racing series this year. Towards that goal we ARE going to get the race marks (and club moorings) prepared and positioned.
In the past, many members have shown up early on a Saturday and spent a few hours preparing the marks. This year things will have to be done a little differently. We will be at Old Mans Boat Yard (as always) which has sufficient area for mark preparation AND social distancing. This year will require different planning and scheduling. Read on if you are interested in assisting.
MSSA Race Mark Preparation Plan - Corona Virus Edition
Work To Do:
Proposed Plan: We can prepare 3 marks at a time by positioning them appropriately
Repeat 2 additional times (only 2 marks for group 3)
If you are interested in assisting please let me know ahead of time. Unfortunately we can't just have people show up. This needs to be scheduled so we can practice social distancing. I am looking for 9 people at 9:00AM, another 9 people at 10, and another 9 at 11. If there are multiple people in your household who want to help, that will make scheduling much easier.
MSSA will provide all hardware. You must supply your own face covering and work gloves. Unfortunately the MSSA will NOT have coffee and donuts (which is a real shame).
If you can help please reply (email preferred, text and phone OK) to me with the following information:
Thanks so much!
