Dear fellow Members,
On behalf of the entire Board, I'd like to wish everyone best wishes this holiday season. While we have to roll with things as they come and some important family traditions may be disrupted, it may also be a chance for new alternatives to make their way into future years celebrations (in our house, this will be the first time we're mixing our own Black Russians on Xmas eve, but we will because some things are sacred!) No matter, it is always family and friends that are the most important. So we hope you are able in some way, to share and enjoy some moments –in person or via a virtual Christmas dinner –with them all.
Amidst all the holiday hubbub and the fast approaching end of 2020 (thank goodness!), your Board is optimistically looking ahead to 2021 and solidifying some dates –as much as they can at this point. Please check the website/calendar for dates and tentative plans. We will of course, have to be adaptive to whatever restrictions may be in place at that time, but we're taking a 'glass half full' approach. With our vessels now spread near and far, our Cruises may more aptly considered Rendezvous; in a socially distant way of course. Vern has been factoring in responses from our previous moorage survey, and also looked for destinations that include available land based accommodations for those not able/wishing to rendezvous by boat.
All this and more is in the works for 2021, check the website regularly for updates/info. May you and yours have a healthy & meaningful Christmas, and enjoy the turning of the page into 2021.
Things you think of when you can't sleep....
While the majority of members have repatriated their boats, one of the most used day-to-day parts of my Point Roberts based boating is my Nexus card. Regardless of the Border closure, its' expiry date marches on. Past experience tells me that as long as you've submitted a renewal request, that is sufficient for a current cardholder to continue using it. However, if it lapses you need to begin the process again from scratch. I'm going to check our expiry dates then go back to bed!
