Membership April 2022

The registration process is now over and it is almost time for the new season to begin! The new online system received a ton of feedback in which the overwhelming majority was positive. There were a few issues that had to be overcome, but I expected more than we had and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it went. I will keep working to improve it in the future and am open to productive suggestions from members. One of the main benefits of going online is the improvement of our data. For example, using email to verify who you are added the benefit of making sure we have the correct email for you. I was surprised how many we had wrong. Another benefit was having the ability to collect data that people would normally ignore using paper copies. An example of this would be our collection of approximate birthdates. This is something we always asked for on our new membership application forms since 1992. It is a good idea for the board to be equipped with correct and useful data so that decisions can be made with facts in mind. It gives us the ability to make tweaks and adjustments to better serve all of you. Have a great season! Perry Cameron Membership Chair

Membership July 2021

There are currently 272 Active memberships at the club, ten of which are new memberships. Slips are in high demand this year as the waiting list is at 16 although some are beginning to open up as some members normally elect to sublease their slips as the year goes on. I would like to welcome Katy Aiello and Aaron Williams as new members of the club. Perry Cameron Membership Chair

Membership June 2021

The summer has started and the club is in full gear now. We currently have 271 active memberships which is a healthy number at this time of year. We have had 9 new memberships since the beginning of January and over the last 10 years we have averaged 20.5 new memberships a year. This means that we are likely to break last year’s all time high of 278 memberships. It is important to keep in mind that in recent years an increasing percentage of our membership core are social memberships which is an excellent option that many long time members have chosen to take in recent years. I would like to extend a warm welcome to David and Brenda Bartle, and Jason and Allison Terry as our newest members to the club. Thanks, Perry Cameron Membership Chair
