All HMYC Members,
I will be leaving for Florida for the winter on November 6th so we will be removing the marks from Bethany earlier that week. After that time, I will be resigning as Commodore of the HMYC. I will be giving up all Commodore/Officer responsibilities below and will be happy to help teach anyone what is needed to be done. By next spring, it is up to someone else to assume the Commodore position and responsibilities for any club sailing in the future. I will continue as a regular club member only.
If anyone is interested in running the HMYC, below is a list of the duties that I have been performing for the club the last four years.

1) Schedule all racing for all classes 2) Be present and run all races on all race days 3) Plan and run all regatta activities and coordinate events in region 1 4) Do all race scoring and series scoring 5) Carry the club rubber boat/Timers/Score Sheets to all races 6) Coordinate agreements with Hop Brook Rangers/ Bethany Parks and Recreation 7) All club website management and administration 8) Coordinate mark removal and transfers between venues and storage 9) Be responsible for all club equipment 10) Plan and organize Annual Meeting 11) Plan and organize Annual Banquet/Election of Officers
I wish to thank the officers and helpers that contributed their time helping me and the club over the past four years.
