Well Spring break is over, it’s back to business. While I personally was not able to attend the entire Spring conference, the portion I did attend was excel-lent. I am hoping that when the Fall Conference comes around we can have a larger delegation from our Squadron. The Fall Conference will be November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, to be held in Findlay at the Findlay Inn hosted by the Lima Squadron. Along the same line, Summer Council will be held at the Toledo Yacht Club on July 27th and 28th. More in-formation will be coming on both.
For those of you who were unable to make the April 8 Squadron meting-you missed a good one. The speakers Mike Muhn and Bob Reynolds spoke about building a wooden Inter-lake. This was a three-year commitment on their part to build this piece of history.
The Port Clinton Commander Joyce Jagucki and I have begun discussion and preliminary planning for a Commander’s Celebration Ball to be held in October. This will be a joint squadron event. I’ll keep everyone informed as the plans progress.
Anne Gilcher is coordinating the efforts to update our web site with Craig and Katie, along with Kathy Runner and Tami Gardner. This was identified as a need for our Squadron at the planning session we had earlier this year. I think this team of five will do an excellent job.
Dick Sisson advised all of us at the last meeting to be careful when out cruising this spring. He’s been out and about on around the islands and reefs already. He said to use caution, as the water is shallow. Be careful!
Make sure to sell the tickets for the reverse raffle and auction coming up on June 10th at the Sandusky Sailing Club. We understand this can be a tough sell but it is our major fundraiser for the year.
Be sure to check out our web site as it progresses and also on Facebook

Commander's Report: January 2011

The highest tides on planet Earth occur near Wolfville, in Nova Scotia's Minas Basin. The water level at high tide can be as much as 16 meters (52.5 feet) higher than at low tide. The greatest difference between high and low tide ever recorded was at Burntcoat Head, Nova Scotia at 16.27 meters (or 53.38 feet) in the Bay of Fundy's Minas Basin.
This is the closest I will ever be able to get to emulate some of the great openings Pablo Prieto had to his articles for the Lookout. For those who did not hear, we lost our dear friend Pablo just before Christmas.
