One Last Sail?

Hey Folks- Just saw this on the CIBC site- food for thought if anyone is up for taking one last stab at a sailing day! See CIBC site for details….

“Just a note to tuck in the back of your mind: Moosehead will be having a cold snap early next week, with temps Monday nightaround twenty. If the edge survives this week, there will be a small contingent on Tuesday heading to Rockwood who refuse to accept the Robins and crocuses. Stay tuned here, or be in touch.

The building and repair season starts now: always put your runners away sharp, replace missing pins, knock off the punch list before it’s forgotten!”

CIBC Spring Meeting Sunday April 9th 11:00 am

 

In case you missed it the Chickawaukie Ice Boat Club is holding their Spring gathering and meeting this Sunday. Swap stories or your plans for next season. We are coming into building season and the heart of ice boat building is with the CIBC. Bring your ideas and there will be many people to help get you started.

When: 11:00 am Sunday April 9th
Where: 15 Bunker Hill Rd, Jefferson, ME 04348
Note: Bring pot luck food to share.

The CIBC will hold it’s annual spring meeting on Sunday, April 9 at the Damariscotta Lake Farm Inn. Meeting to begin at 11:00, followed by a fine pot luck lunch. Last year’s food was among the best ever; let’s maintain the tradition! Anita asks that we park on the north side of the building to keep the restaurant parking on the other side clear for business.

Come on out it’s going to be a very long warm season. See you there!

Think Ice,
