Happy summer everyone! I love this time of year! Outdoor grilling, light outside until 9 pm, warm enough to go boating in shorts and tee shirt, fresh Brentwood corn to enjoy, and friends at the San Joaquin Yacht Club to share a drink with on a beautiful evening!
I would like to thank all of the members who came to meeting night this month. It was really fun to see such a great turnout, with people we have not seen in awhile!
We are only 6 weeks away from the 2017 4S Games in Sacramento on July 8th. Pam Allen is heading up our
team this year, and is working hard to insure we have the best person/s for each event. For those of you who are fairly new to the club, 4S stands for the 4 yacht clubs that makeup this group. They are Sacramento, Stockton, Sportsman (in Oakley), and San Joaquin. Sacramento has a history of doing very well at the 4S games each year. So well in fact, that they kind of expect to win every year. Yes, the games are on their home turf, but wouldn’t it be fun to show up on Saturday July 8th and surprise them with a win! That can only happen if we scout out the best people for every event, and then practice, practice, practice. So if you know of someone who is really good at any of the games being played, let us know; so we can have the best chance to win!!
This was my first year to attend the Meals on Wheels event and I was very impressed with the amount of time and effort that goes into planning the events of golf and bowling; followed by cocktails, dinner, and awards. Many volunteers have worked year after year to insure the day’s success. I bowled with the group and had a blast. I even got instruction from our resident bowling pro, Bob Beau regard. Dianna played her first 18 holes of golf ever, but had fun and got personal instruction from our resident golf pro, Marge Foster. She had fun and now wants to play more often and improve her game. It was another fun day at the San Joaquin Yacht Club with all the proceeds going to the local Meals on Wheels organization. I can’t wait for the Champagne Cruise on Sept 16th ! I received a call this month from the Bay Area Paranormal Society. They want to come to our club on one of the morequiet Saturday nights to set up their equipment to determine if there are ghosts residing on the Sutter. For those of us who have spent anytime alone at the club, we can always hear the odd noises from the upper deck.
The actual testing evening will be in late July, so we should have the results for our August member meeting. The lead came to us from the Historical Society that has two meetings a year at our club. Jody Merriam gave them our contact information. Thank you Jody!
