From The Big SIR

2015 Big SIR: Dick Coleman 

Kudos to our little SIR, Jeff Dye. The February speaker from the River Cats was both informational and entertaining. I know from my own experience as little SIR that it is a daunting task trying to provide such quality speakers every month. Please be sure to let Jeff know your appreciation.

We will not be able to provide year 2015 member directories until the April meeting due to web site technical and support issues. Any members with moderate computer savvy would be very welcome to help us maintain our site. Volunteers are also needed for the new activities we plan to start this year, so please let me or a board member know of your committee preferences.
Our newsletter editor, Mickey Wagner, has notified the board that this issue will be his last. Mickey assures us that he will work closely with whoever takes his place so that the transition goes smoothly. Now all we need is for someone to step up now. Mickey has been our editor for many years and deserves our utmost appreciation for his long service.
My thanx also goes out to those who showed support at our last meeting on the gold pan issue. Now we can move forward with a more stable budget.
Looking forward to seeing you at our March meeting!!
See you then, Dick Coleman

From The Little Sir

2015 Little SIR: Jeff Dye

 Hi All,
For our May meeting, a special thanks goes out to our own Larry DeZonia for sharing he and his wife's adventures aboard their 45 foot boat and covering more than 7,300 miles of U.S. waterways.  It was very entertaining and I have had nothing but positive feedback for his presentation.
For our June luncheon our guest speaker will be Mr. Charles Hart, who is Executive Director for Educational Tall Ships and Call of the Sea.  He will be talking about the tall ship "Mathew Turner" which is under construction, and the educational and charter programs of the Call of the Sea.  This tall wooden vessel is the first to be built in the S.F. Bay Area in over 100 years.  This should be fascinating!
As usual, I'll always consider any prospective leads that you may have for interesting speakers.  Look forward to seeing you on the 9th.
