  • There will be door prizes and giveaways for all
  • Swap Meet and outside gathering lower parking lot pre-list your items on the NEIYA classifieds
  • VC Jay Whitehair will conduct a hands-on throw bag rescue demonstration. It looks easy but someone’s life may rest in your hands so make sure you do it right.
  • Lunch and meeting inside and accommodations can be made for outside eating if anyone prefers.
  • The golf facilities will be open and if the practice greens are not aerated we could have a casual putting competition. Most of us are sailors, not golfers but we are talking bragging rights. Bring your sticks and a sleeve of balls.
  • There will be a land sailor or two set up and Jeff Kent is bringing his DN Landsailing converter kit, the same rig that tore up the tarmac at Loring in September and generated a lot of internet buzz. If the wind cooperates a demo will occur.
  • There may also be some amateur track events going on to watch.
  • Even though the Covid risks have leveled off, we do ask that everyone follow the prescribed state and federal protocol. It’s about being sure everyone is comfortable and safe and not politics.
