SLSC Newsletter Week 5, 2012
Well its official, we’ve reached our halfway point! But don’t get sad yet, we still have four fun filled weeks left and this one is going to be a blast!
Speaking of fun, parents, please remember to send your sailors to club with close-toed shoes so fun will not be interrupted by any foot injuries in the boat. Some that we recommend are Crocs and Keens, flip flops are not appropriate sailing shoes!
This Saturday is our annual Civic Weekend Regatta. It is a great chance for SLSC sailors of all ages to get some racing experience in a fun environment! Stay tuned for more information to come this week and if you have any questions please direct them to our Race Coach, Amy DesBrisay.
Also a reminder that there will be no club next Monday to accomodate Sturgeon Point’s annual running races.
Dances and Movie Night
This Tuesday night is movie night! The first movie starts at 6:30 and is suitable for all ages and the second movie is suitable for kids aged 13 and up. Each movie is $1 and popcorn and juice will be served. See you there!
This Friday we’ll be burnin’ down the house at the Disco Dance! Dress up in your best Disco outfit because a prize goes to be the best costume! The dance runs from 7 until 9 and admission is $1. Pop will be sold for $1 and freezies for 25 cents. See you there!
Fun Day and Pizza Lunch
This Wednesday is our annual Fruit Olympics! A favorite to all, the Fruit Olympics will challenge your fruit eating abilities, along with athletic abilities! Coinciding with London 2012 we hope to see lots of Olympic spirit on Wednesday! Come dressed up as an Olympic athlete and get ready for the games!
As always this Wednesday is Pizza Lunch. Two slices of pizza, lemonade and an ice cream sandwich are $7.50. Pizza arrives at 12:30 and pick up is at 1.
Wednesday Night Races
Unfortunately, Wednesday night races were cancelled last week due to the weather but we are hopeful that the weather will cooperate with us this week! Remember that Wednesday night races are for SLSC sailors of all levels! Come down to the club at 6:30 to rig, and we will assign everyone a boat to sail in. After the races, stay for a bonfire and reward your racing with some smores! Pick up time is 9:00.
Things to Bring
As always we’re promoting a waste-free sailing club, so we encourage all sailors to bring their own reusable water bottle to club. We have a water cooler up stairs that we will be sure is always full for sailors to fill their water bottles up with. Other things that are important to bring everyday are a PFD, closed toed shoes, a change of clothes, weather appropriate gear (a little rain doesn’t keep us from sailing!), a towel, sunscreen, a hat and a snack.
