Possible Opening for Potential Tin Cup Regatta SkippersPOSTER: Larry Odence Email — POSTED: 04/23/06 — 12:32:56 PMDuring the Tin Cup Regatta, there are likely to be a number of regular and semi-regular Skiff racers who will be very busy running races, arranging for lunches etceteras. This could interfere with the number of Skiffs actually participating in the Regatta races. On the other hand I can envisage a number of not so regular and even “retired” traditional Skiff sailors who might like to try their hands on a Skiff tiller during such an important event. In order to provide fun for the most number of would be racers and also maximize the fleet, it might be helpful to have a list of skipper candidates from those who do not have ready access to a boat. If there is such an interest, please sign up as there are provisions for responding on the CMYC Skiff web site where this will be posted underDiscussion Forums-CMYC 100 General Discussion.Recognizing that there can be a need for crews as well as interested candidates, I am hopeful that more advanced prammers and other older kids within the ACMYC instructional program will want to become very much involved with the Regatta races.

Social Status...from HelliePOSTER: Philip Odence Email — POSTED: 04/17/06 — 07:51:15 PMAll is well with the hospitality crew. The lunches, dinners etc. all seem to be comming along. Barbara Faye and I are working out all the details for the dinner and that is going well. We met on a cold rainey day down there last month and viewed the space with caterer. It should really prove to be a relaxing and lovely event. Jan has been working hard on curating the exhibit Cotuit Skiffs over the last hundred years. This should be a great show and the CCA is really excited about it as well. We are hopingto lower the price per ticket by $15 or so (stay tune no promises, but we did get the wine donated). We are working on the liquor permit, insurance, etc..I need to talk with Greg Austin (could you e-mail me. I can't seem to e-mail you from my computer) with some more specifics regarding insurance and the liquor permit.
The lunches are coming along. A tent has been ordered(and donated) and now it's just the portapotties (which I believe Dale has under control). I have been assured we are all set with insurance for my house. I assume by now the teenagers have contacted the Swartwood neighbors regarding spill over by the CMYC during the regatta.
I reserved Freedom Hall for the teen dance and as a back up for the square dance. We must all pray for good weather!
Sally J and Michelle Long are all set for the Sunday reception at the Danhausers. I think we are in good shape. We will be calling everyone who volunteered to make sandwiches etc. closer to the time. THIS SHOULD BE FUN!

Biggest SKiff Race EverPOSTER: Larry Odence Email — POSTED: 04/17/06 — 04:29:13 PMDear Cotuit Skiff Fleet:-----We have had more than 40 responses or roughly half of the potential fleet, mostly favorable,to the invitation to this great once in a lifetime event scheduled for July 30, 2006. For those slow poke Skiffs, we will be sending out a reminder in the coming weeks. To save stamps, stationary and especially Nelson's signature hand it would be great if many of you would respond prior to this next and hopefully last mailing. If you are too tired to even think of participating, we will cry but we would still like to know that for planning purposes. It still looks like a fleet of 50 plus will report that day for all the fun activities hopefully including some games and even a "gourmet" picnic lunch.
