Course Survey Update, Remaining Work Hours, Dues, Annual Vote

A big thank you to Owen for confirming our course accuracy today. Our course survey is now complete and confirmed to be within a half centimeter average width. Well within the required specifications and near perfect. Congratulations and thank you to all who put their time and effort into this project:
  • Jerry
  • John & Donna
  • Don & Doug
  • J Gambello
  • Andrew
  • Art and Angie
  • and any others I have forgotten to list here.
  • Great job by all!
As John G relayed, there is still a small amount of work yet to be completed. We do not need an organized work party to complete these last few tasks:
  • Re-install railings
  • Dig out the north end of the north dock.
  • Fresh staining
Get down to the pond and earn some easy work hours!
Work hours, membership dues, and proof of USAWaterski membership should be turned at the Thursday, Nov 6th membership meeting and are PAST DUE after December 15th.
November Meeting will also include the annual vote for 2015 E Board and Chair Persons positions.
November Membership meeting will be a Pot Luck culinary experience..
2 SUPPLEMENT HOURS of work hours for every pot luck dish brought to November’s meeting!
Bring 2 dishes = 4 work hours.
Except of course Andrew R, who will be continuing his Outback EMT Ski Patrol training!

Thank You to SCCWSC Members

A big thank you goes out to SCCWSC members, led by Jerry, Art, and John for driving the ongoing projects and permits necessary to organize the work parties needed to complete the work at the Pond. Many others volunteered their time as well and took time off to get the work done. The pond is a better place because of this team effort. Thank you.

October Membership Meeting – 10/2 @7pm

Membership meeting this Thursday, October 2nd 7pm upstairs Room #4 at the Almaden Community Center
  • Dock repair party
  • E Board Volunteers and Nominations
  • Support Position volunteers
We are in need of several volunteers for positions including;
  • VP Membership
  • VP Tournaments
  • Corresponding Secretary
  • Member(s)-at-Large
  • Course Caretaker
  • Scorer
  • Social Committee
A lot of the veteran club members have never volunteered for a Board or Supporting position. Now is the time to step up! During my 10+ years on the Board, I continue to see the same faces stepping up to help run this club. The old adage, “10% of the members do 90% of the work” has unfortunately held true. It’s possible some long term Board members are just “burnt out”. Time to step up “members in the shadows”! It’s too easy to just sit back and let the usual suspects do all the work. “Hey, there’s no water, what’s the point?”. Members who participate, realize a dry lake is actually an opportunity for improvement. We need everyone’s help!
Active and Inactive dues, proof of current USA WATERSKI Membership, and work hours are due Thursday November 6th.  
Please contact Scot G ASAP regarding nominations, volunteering, or issues with Membership renewal.
