Postings about sailing Flying Scots in the Midwest District. If you have something that you'd like to have included here, please email it to me, Ben Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org). I sail Sophie (FS 5897) with my wife, Debby Aronson.
We already have more than 50 boats registered for the NAC, which is great! We are well on our way to our goal of 60 boats for our 60th! Meanwhile, we are forcing our sailors into the 21st century by requiring online registration. I know, I know! I hate progress too! And change? Forget about it!!
But there you have it; even us oldsters have to accept the inevitable. So sit down in front of your computer (oh, if you are reading this you already are). So, go get an adult beverage, come back, sit down, go to FSSA.COM, and follow the links. If you need to, find your daughter or your grandson or your neighbor to help you navigate. Don't let the internet stop you from having the time of your life!
But the main point of this particular message is that registration for the NAC Championship goes up by $50 smackeroos after June 1. And as some of us get older, time flies. June 1 will be here before you know it!!
That fee includes two tickets for the Wednesday night annual banquet for skipper and one crew. Additional tickets are $50. Greg Fisher will be the featured speaker at the banquet. Plus, there will be cake. Enough said.
