Commodore Lucy Feit
Fall is here and our snowbirds are returning to
sunny Florida. Itís good to welcome them back. I still have several events
planned before our next Commodore, Lucy Feit, takes office so please be
sure to read further in the Mainsheet for details.
As you know we have reduced the cost of our annual membership and have
given singles the opportunity to pay for themselves, rather than the same
cost as couples. So if you havenít yet sent in your dues, please be sure
to get them to us before the end of October. Cost for couples is $325 and
singles pay $225. Lucy and her team are planning a ton of fun events and
weekends and you donít want to miss out!
Due to windy and wet weather forecasts, we had to cancel the weekend at
Sunset Harbor Marina in Miami, but so not to miss out on being together,
we met for a wonderful Italian dinner Friday night and had a raft out on
Sunday afternoon in Lake Boca. The weekend turned out to be a lot of fun
for those who had originally planned on going down to Miami! We will be
heading up to Stuart for the weekend October 11-13 and there is still time
to join us, either by boat or by car. Please contact Connie Miller for
more details. She can be reached at 954 732 7607. It will be the last
boating weekend of my term and The Millers have made lots of plans for us.
The more the merrier !!
By the time you read this, summer will be close to
itís end. The Corinthians remaining down south had several opportunities
to get together and most of us did just that. We have had really
successful happy hours, with as many as 36 people attending. I spent a
portion of the summer working on September and October events,
particularly the 2 boating weekends coming up before the end of my term.
Our September trip to Sunset Harbor Marina in Miami still has docking
vacancies, as does the Residence Inn not far from the marina. We will be
having an onsite catered dinner for all who attend. In October we are
heading north to Stuart at the Sunset Bay Marina. Connie and Mike Miller
will be heading up the weekend and are making sure we have lots of fun
things to do. Information has been sent out about hotel accommodations
also. Both marinas are taking reservations directly from the boaters. So
if you plan on joining us for a good time, please make your arrangements
now. Itís hard to believe that we are already talking about COW! More
information will be sent to everyone as soon as all of the details have
been finalized but if you are a boat owner and want to have your boat in
the parade, please let Michael Baron, the upcoming Fleet Captain, know so
he can start working on the arrangements. Most of you already know that
there has been a change in the upcoming yearís Commodore. Lucy Feit, who
has served on the Board of Governors for many years as Secretary and
Mainsheet Editor, has been nominated for that position. She brings to the
Board many years of understanding the Corinthianís policies and
procedures. Lucy is already working on lots of great ideas for fun events
so the Corinthians should be in for another successful year ahead.
Currently Change of Watch is scheduled for November 3, 2019. Hope to see
you at upcoming events and please watch for future announcements of where
Commodore Jerry McGuire
Social Chair Roni Whipple:
Hello Corinthians! I hope everyone is having a good
summer as August exits and September is right behind. Pretty soon it will
be fall with a whole new exciting year on tap but we still have lots of
fun activities planned for the next two months. Happy hours have been fun
and very well attended with a huge thanks to Maureen Jacobson for
arranging them ! I hope you all have seen the ad and have purchased your
tickets for the Murder Mystery Dinner and Show on September 20th at
Maggiano's in Boca for what will be a fun and interactive evening. Tickets
are on sale on their website. Donít forget to let me know your seating
preference; we already have a few big tables full! Be on the lookout for
the advertisement for our October Membership Meeting which will be taking
place on October 25 at the Ft Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach. ďA Fall
Mask-eradeĒ is the theme for a fun and whimsical evening of great food,
entertainment and of course, Corinthian camaraderie is in store for our
fall dinner/dance. We are constantly on the prowl for fun things to do so
stay tuned for additional events before Commodore Leslieís year winds to a
close. Looking forward to seeing you all !
May and June:
Hello Corinthians ! While we certainly have been busy these past few
months April has been a little more restful for those that did not join us
on the fabulous Commodoreís Cruise. As you may have heard we are
postponing our Wine Dinner at Luigi Di Roma due to the amount of extensive
construction outside the restaurant which has caused a difficult parking
situation. Maureen Jacobson and I are watching and waiting to re-schedule
the dinner as soon as possible. Please watch your email for the new date -
we are hoping toward the end of June. At this time we are planning all
sorts of fun things for over the summer including Lake Boca Raft Outs,
Dinner at the Beach, Boys and Girls Night Out, and of course re-scheduling
our Stuart boating weekend, as well as other boating weekends nearby. In
the meantime we continue to have great participation at our Happy Hour
get-togethers. This past week, at Ouzo Bay, was a huge success. Everyone
had a great time eating together at one big table for 25!
Stay tuned for upcoming events via your email. I wish everyone a very
Happy Motherís Day ! See you all soon !
Hope everyone has had a fantastic summer.
I would like to introduce Ellyn and Steve Okrent. They are residents of
Lighthouse Point and enjoy boating on their 34 ft. Sea Ray ďHappy OursĒ.
Please make an effort to make them feel welcomed into our Corinthians.

The time has come for all good men and women to
come to the aid of their country or in this case the Corinthians of LPYRC.
We have all enjoyed great times, both at the club and on the water, made
new friends and said goodbye to those who have left us all too soon. We've
all complained about one thing or another but the experience of being a
Corinthian is one we have been proud of and one that we have never
regretted. Now after 50 years of making memories the very existence of our
organization is being threatened by a lack of volunteers for leadership
roles. On the positive side, I have many very capable volunteers to fill all
of the Board positions and non Board positions. We are in need of a Vice
Commodore and a Fleet Captain in order to keep our organization going into
the second half of Ďour century.í
The Vice Commodore is a two year commitment to
the club and the Fleet Captain is a four year commitment that gives an
individual plenty of time to learn the ropes. Or, you can volunteer to be
our Cruise Director, same responsibilities but with no commitment to the
four year term. You can decide that at the end of your year as Cruise
Accepting one of these positions does not leave
you high and dry and alone to carry out these responsibilities. Past
officers are available to assist you in the position and many board
members, as well as general members, have generously offered to assist you
with your responsibilities.
If you have any interest, please call Leslie Baron
or Jerry Maguire to set up an informal discussion about the
