BLOOMER CUP WEEKEND – September 6-7.  Cocktails at the Club on Friday September 6 starting around 5:00 p.m.  Bring and appetizer to share if you wish and welcome sailors from out of town.

Saturday September 7 – Bloomer Cup Sailboat Race.  See the attachments for particulars especially sailors wishing to participate.  Dinner follows the race; grill your own steak (provided) for $15.  I refer to the following from Race chair Dale Fitch.

Volunteers Needed for Bloomer Cup

We need the following volunteers for the Bloomer Cup to be held on September 7, 2019


Boat and Crew to set marks-  We need a boat (hopefully a power vessel) to set the marks on Saturday morning.  Additionally, we need a crew of 3 volunteers to set the marks.  This should be done about 8am on Saturday.  The marks will be just north of the harbor and within 2 nautical miles of the harbor entrance, so this should not take long.  Ability to operate a hand-held gps would be most helpful.


Race committee–  We need four volunteers aboard the committee boat during the race.


Dinner Volunteers-  The dinner is a grill your own event , but we will need some help in serving and clean up.  Please call Jim Ricklefs at

231-233-2900  if you can assist.


Sunday morning clean up-  We need approximately 4 volunteers to sweep and clean the club on Sunday morning. 


If you can help with any of these tasks, please call Dale Fitch at 231-425-0305 or email


The Peel & Eat shrimp dinner is on Friday and Saturday September 13 & 14.  Please call or text Sandy at 231-690-6224 to reserve a spot.  Saturday is nearly full, Friday has openings yet!  Cutoff for reservations is Wednesday September 11.
