Re: 2018 Annual Meeting Nov. 10th

Rod Sternagel

Hi Tyler,

It is past Nov. 2nd but I would potentially like to add another item to agenda if possible. As I mentioned in a previous email Lake Stevens Rowing Club would like to be host a Sound Rowers Race sometime during the Sound Rower’s quiet season (November - March). Per Don Kiesling’s reply to my query last month, LSRC would like to discuss this at the board meeting. I will not be at the board meeting as I will be racing in California. Bob Cummins would represent LSRC at the meeting if we can have it on the agenda.

Concerning LaConner, I have submitted the date to Don and have preparations proceeding. I will likely move the lunch to the picnic shelter on the hill next to the bathrooms. We still do not have a sponsor to return to Shelter Bay and the school we used last year is fairly expensive ($493) after paying for the rental, janitor, and insurance (plus it took several months to get my billing). Since we are already paying for the shelter when we rent the bathrooms, there will be no extra charge. My wife and I will check it out one more time but I believe it is large enough to get everyone out of the weather — just not heated as the club and school have been. My wife (a.k.a. La Conner co-director), Deb, will try to make the meeting to answer any questions.

Please let me know if I should have Bob plan on attending the meeting and also let me know if you would like any other information concerning La Conner.

Hello all Sound Rowers & Paddlers,

It is that time once again when those that enjoy being apart of Sound Rowers have the opportunity to share in the of the magic of what goes on behind the scenes.  Our annual meeting is open to all members and is the time when we review all aspects of the club including but not limited to; races, budgets, safety, and marketing.  Officers are elected, and issues are voted on.

To note for this year:

1)    The date is Saturday Nov. 10 at 10:00 AM at the Lake Washington Rowing Club: 910 North Northlake way, Seattle, WA 98103

2)    After 8 years I will not be running for reelection, so the position of president will need to be filled.  This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of an tremendous club filled with fantastic passionate people.  If you are even considering it of just have questions please reach out to me. 

3)    Feel free to come early and row or paddle off the LWRC Dock and explore the waterways of Seattle.

4)    Review the attached minutes from last year’s meeting.

5)    Feel free to bring some food to share and snack on.

6)    If you have anything that you would like to add to the agenda, please email me prior to November 2nd and I will add it. I will send the agenda out in about a week.

Our club only works because of our all-volunteer team of race directors, officers and other support staff that take the time to ensure we all come back safe with a smile on our faces. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have questions or would like to find a way to volunteer.  

I look forward to seeing you all on the 10th,

Tyler Peterson- Sound Rowers President
