KAMPESKA YACHT CLUB, Watertown, SD
PLANNING COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES
Kampeska Yacht Club Spring Planning Meeting April 30th, 2017
A short planning meeting was held at Mark and Jody Messerli's home to discuss the Kampeska Cup.
Discussion was held as to whether the club should cease operations or attempt to reinvigerate it somehow. The number of boats racing each years has dropped and the committee running the race has done it for many years. The consensus was to try one more year but make it easier for the committee and people involved. No shirts or door prizes will be handed out. Trophies will be limited to the Kampeska cup for the overall winner.
We will also try to promote sailing and build interest in the club by having an introduction to sailing night on Thursday, June 8th at 5:30 pm. We will all get together and sail for about an hour and then have a potluck barbecue and Mark and Jody Messerli's home at 1268 South Lake Drive. Everyone should bring something to grill and drink. You can also bring salads or chips. We will see what the interest is in the event. If it is a success others may be planned.
Sandy Wiswall submitted the treasurers report for 2016. We have a balance of $473.77. Since we self catered the food last year the costs were lower.
We talked about dates for the race schedule this summer. The Kampeska Cup will be held on Saturday July 15, 2017, if case of bad weather Sunday July 16.
It was decided that we will not do t-shirts this year.
The website is still at www.kampeskayachtclub.com. Thanks again to Jeff Wiswall for the free hosting of the site.
