Annual Meeting & Chili Cook-Off

Ahoy SPSA Members! Be sure to mark Feb. 20 on your calendars! That’s our next SPSA racing date – races 9 & 10 of the SPSA 2015-16 Series. It’s also the date of our ANNUAL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING – all members are encouraged to attend! Voice your ideas, concerns and desires for the organization, meet new crew and boat owners, and taste some yummy chili! That’s right, the meeting will coincide with our 1st ANNUAL CHILI COOK-OFF! Dust off your crock pots and dig out your favorite chili recipe! Gathering will begin at 4pm at The Sailing Center. Compete for a highly desirable left-over SPSA item remaining in the storage locker 🙂 Judging will be completely arbitrary, and bribes will definitely be accepted 😉 BYOB, and bring your chili toppings. SPSA will provide bowls, spoons and napkins. Your dedicated and hard-working Board would like to share ideas and plans regarding the remainder of the season. And, of course, they’d like to taste your chili. We would appreciate your feedback and input – and, of course, your chili. VICE-COMMODORE, STEVE, and REAR-COMMODORE, TONY, will have tables set up and power strips available at the sailing center in the morning. The Sailing Center opens early, so bring your crock pot there before the race, plug it in on low setting, and it should warm and irresistible by 4pm. Feel free to leave a cooler with your drinks, and/or your toppings, or put them in the fridge. Respond to this email if you have any questions. Just don’t make them really hard ones, please 😉 Remember, our continued success depends on you, so please attend this not-to-be-missed fabulous, important, and delicious event! Fair winds, happy sailing and happy chili cooking! -Suzanne

The crews of Desiderata, Warrior, Back Off, Hula Girl, Curragh, and Cracker Jack braved the cold weather to sail in memory of Rear Commodore Joe Corey who recently lost his battle with cancer.

Here’s a video of the memorial today for those that missed it. video
