The ballot is attached to 4 pages of Constitution and Bylaws proposals. Please take the time to review the proposals, fill out the ballot, detach it from the proposals, put it in an envelope, and mail to Secretary Deb Whitehorse.

Time for a quick update before heading to the lake. Racing began at noon yesterday on the first day of the EC because of brutally cold temps in the morning. A C qualifier, B qualifier, an A, and another B were sailed. Ron Sherry us44 took the first race.
It’s cold again this morning but lighter winds are predicted which will make for challenging conditions. Off to the lake!
