It’s hard to believe, but our first membership meeting of the 2015 season is next week Tuesday, March 3rd. We will be meeting at the Ludington BOAT Club at 6:00 p.m.
The Ludington Youth Sailing School is looking to purchase or accept donation of a 9′ to 12′, inflatable, hard bottom, dinghy with a motor large enough to get the dinghy on plane. Call Gary at 231-690-3710 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is still plenty of time to make a reservation for this dinner by calling Luci at 843-1561.
Cocktails at the Club continues as well this Friday.
