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!
Welcome, and I'm glad we're all here. I'm pleased to be serving as PRYC Commodore this year, but have to admit to being a little apprehensive of the circumstances I'm stepping into... a Club that can't get to their Club!!! It kind of harkens that Tom Hank's movie "The Terminal".
Crewing as a non-member on a couple different boats for Series racing, I was already benefitting from the PRYC racing program before Lisa and I joined, and was easily coerced by skipper/Board member (now P/C) Drew Rickard to member up and later, to serve on the Board. There are many who have given their time to help guide the club through the years; all doing so to help foster something we all benefit from. That's how Clubs work. So thank you to this years Board for the time and energy you'll be spending in your rolls over the next 12 months. In spite of the challenges presented, I know you're commitment resourcefulness will serve the Club well.
While most of us aren't able to access our home port -many taking temporary refuge on other docks, I hope that we can all work together to find creative ways to remain connected and engaged through this (already too lengthy) challenging time.
