Volume 40 Issue 2 – February 2021
There’s a tradition of the club coming up on February 11th at 6:30 PM on Zoom. It’s called the Landlubber’s Celebration where the old board recognizes some of our members for funny, heroic, or unusual stories that have happened in the last year’s sailing season. Since we had COVID-19 going on, it was a shorter season this year. We usually have a banquet but this year we will still honor club members in this celebration. So put your thinking caps on and send your stories to Marilyn or Bobby. I will be sending out the Zoom invite for our meeting on February 11th later.
Also, Shane has updated the sailing schedule adding more Saturday sails! Look for it in this newsletter. So, he will be calling for coordinators to make this sailing schedule a GO!!
We are also in need of someone who has a garage or basement that they can store our club’s paper products and supplies for weekend and day sails. Peppi has been doing it for at least two years and Tom P. for many years before that. If you can help the club out, please call or email me.
Thanks, and see you at the meeting!
Next Upcoming Event – Landlubber’s Celebration Thursday Feb 11th, 6:30pm
We are currently at 22 new and renewed members with several inquiries from Meet-Up.
New and renewed members will get a Salty Dog bandana at the next club sail.
We are having more business cards made and I encourage everyone to take a few to hand out to anyone interested in joining the club. The cards should be available at the next in-person meeting.

I need your 20-20 hindsight on great (or good) stories on the 2020 sailing season for the Landlubber’s event. Make your notes and send them to me at SaltyDog37@gmail.com. If have a story, but are having difficulty putting it into words, then call me @ 303.521.8589 and we can work on it together.
YouTube videos – on sailing or other NON-cat videos
We need some interesting videos for the Landlubber’s meeting. If it is on sailing, that’s great. Travel or adventure is also good. If someone is interested in putting together a collage of Salty Dog pictures, that would be nice to have. Send any ideas to me at SaltyDog37@gmail.com.
