  • 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 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.
