The March General Membership meeting will be at 7:00 PM at the Satellite Beach Civic Center, 565 Cassia Blvd, Satellite Beach. FL.
The program will be a presentation on Bahamas Cruise Planning: What You Need To Know by Harvey Melfi and other cruisers.
The Melbourne Air & Space Show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 21-22. The official event is held at Melbourne International Airport, but we expect to have an opportunity to view some high-flying aircraft from an anchorage in the Indian River, roughly midway between the Eau Gallie and Melbourne causeways, in line with the airport runway.
The show schedule will be published 7 to 10 days before the event at http://airandspaceshow.com/ or on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/airandspaceshow.
Call Don or Joanne (321-254-4624 or 321-243-5534) for more details.
April is Child Abuse Awareness month and the East Coast Sailing Association and Squid Lips team up with the Child Abuse Prevention Task Force to promote awareness. Squid Lips donates 5% of revenue from food sales and donates it to CAPTF. The ECSA attempts to get as many boats as possible to attend, which draws attention to the cause. I will be handing out blue pennants from our boat again this year for those arriving by boat to show our support.
This is a wonderful cruise for children also as there are several activities on the beach for them. In the past we have tried to get a large table to accommodate our group, but we have been asked to refrain from doing that this year as it blocks tables and it is hard to serve everyone at the same time. Instead, grab a few friends and a table and enjoy the great food. Karen and I will be taking attendance, so if we don’t see you, please look for us.
a paper copy will NOT be mailed to you unless
