Duty Day

Duty Day at KSC – This past weekend: Thanks Annie for cleaning up the clubhouse storage cabinets and washing the floor. And thanks Jean for organizing the area between the gas shed and tool shed and cleaning the gunk out between the clubhouse front step boards (it causes wood rot) and helping me change some of the boards there and on the deck. (Full disclosure ­čÖé I’m Jean’s husband and somehow her Duty Day expanded into us replacing several stair and deck boards!)

In addition to helping keeping the place neat and tidy, Duty Day is a great opportunity to pickup new skills like for example, learning about the powerboats, sailboat repair, and the use of the workshop tools. Simply ask me or another experienced member and we’ll be glad to show you. After all, we’re all in this club together.

Be sure to sign-up for your turn.

Post-Launch Day – Thank you

Thank you to those who helped with Launch Day. Huge progress was made in preparation for Saturday’s Open House. Lunch was awesome – thanks to Ken and his team.

‘New’ Furniture: A big thank you to Tony for donating the beautiful sofa and chairs, delivering them and getting a few helpers to help him cart off the old ones.

Water pump: Thank you John, Ken, Louis and especially Mike (who spent time in the cold river), for your expertise and doing a great job priming the pump. Then Ed discovered and quickly fixed the leak from a burst pipe.

Workshop / Sail Loft Roof Shingles: Thank you to Deb and Stefan for initiating and taking on the roof reshingle project.
