November General Membership Meeting, 11 November 2015

The November General Membership meeting will be at 7:00 PM at the Satellite Beach Civic Center, 565 Cassia Blvd, Satellite Beach. FL.

Grant Ball will present "Marine Engine Maintenance".   


Proposed Change to Bylaws

In order to present the annual cruising awards at our January general meeting, the following change is proposed to the ECSA Articles of Incorporation.  A vote to approve the change will be conducted at the December 9th general membership meeting.
Article VI Section 3 states, in part:  “the newly elected officers and governor shall be inducted during January awards banquet meeting following their election.”
The proposed change reads:  “the newly elected officers and governor shall be inducted during the January business meeting following their election.”
Since the usual awards banquet is also the January business meeting, the proposed change covers both the normal annual banquet and the 2016 business meeting, followed by the 50th anniversary banquet in March.

Poor weather and very high water doomed participation in this event.

Rotary Park Cruise - November 21-22, Hosts: BOG

Mark your calendar for one of the most popular cruises of the year.  We have reserved the Rotary Park pavilion from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on November 21st.  This cruise is always a great time, with music, games and lots of good company.  Sail over and anchor off the beach, or drive to the park, across from Suntree Boulevard.  The gates will be open extra hours for this event.

ECSA will be supplying hamburgers for all, to be cooked on the grill in the pavilion.  Bring your beverage of choice and a side dish to share.  Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.

Cruisers can gather in the park for a potluck breakfast on Sunday morning.
