 BAYSIDE REGATTA RECAP 10.01.16 -9am-10pm
  The Bayside Regatta benefitting the rebuilding of Rowlett was a fun time for the racers and our booth folks greeting and informing the public about our club. Kenny crewed a first place boat and Dave on a second on the water. Chris, Leigh, Dave, Kenny, and Marlisia made our great booth happen.

  Tom and Greg did pull off the final race Saturday. the rest of the racers were either out or crispy critter from the all day Bayside Regatta. Thanks again to Tom
for pushing through in low wind and scattered participation at the home lake on the day.

 We will have the annual Turkey Tanning Party at the Harbor Housie on Nov 6th. It will be a pot luck for the side dishes and Greg will have the bar open for us for the Party. Its a Sunday in the afternoon at 3 to begin. Always one of our best events.
