Board of Managers Meeting: June 2013

Minutes from the June 17, 2013, Y-Knot Board of Managers’ meeting at YMCA Camp Chingachgook on Lake George, following the dedication of the new Y-Knot dock, are submitted for consideration as follows:

In attendance were Trish McCluskey, Keith Edwards (YMCA Camp Chingachgook liaison), Mark Carnevale (Y-Knot Board President), Dave Whalen, Spencer Raggio, Rick Irvine, Don Miller (Vice President) and Dan Byrnes (Secretary).

We discussed an invitation to attend, in Schenectady, June 28, Empowerment Day, which would be a chance to set up a table, display one of our sailboats and invite people to come up and try sailing in the Martins and the other sailboats. We decided we can’t really afford the time right now, this year to take a boat to this event because of the time and effort involved. Keith Edwards said Dan Kennedy had volunteered to set up a table with a smaller banner. Keith will coordinate flyers, banner and video. Mark will confirm with the event sponsor: Self-Advocacy Association of New York State.

Keith said whoever is going to attend AQVA and Malletts Bay needs to sign up soon. Right now we have 2 boats going up on a double trailer.

Keith also said we expect to have 5 boats at the Burlington, Vermont, Regatta this year. Y-Knot sailors signed up this year include Dave Whalen and Eric Rose.

Our next meeting will be Aug. 20, which is a sailing day, so volunteers will be invited to attend. The meeting will start at the usual time, 6:00 P.M.
