2014 Letter from the Commodore

March 2nd, 2014

Dear CRAM Member,


As we look forward to the 2014 sailing season I would like to communicate changes that were approved at the fall membership business meeting. There was much discussion regarding the difficulty in filling club officer and regatta volunteer (race committee, hospitality, etc...) positions. In recent years the pool of volunteers has declined to the point where the same small group of members are performing all of the work. For the club to continue to offer first class regattas and cover our expenses, including planning for future needs, the work needs to be shared by all members. As an incentive to increase volunteer participation, a fee structure with a two tiered membership discount was approved starting with the 2014 season. The first tier discount is a regular member discount of $15 and the second tier discount is a contributing member discount of an additional $15 ($30 total). A contributing member is defined as a member who has contributed in the previous season or is contributing in the current season (ie. Officer, race committee, race committee in training, regatta hospitality, or other at the Commodore's discretion). A $10 early registration discount will also apply to all registrants (non-member, member, contributing member) if registered and paid by the early registration deadline. See the chart below for details.

Member Early Reg. $50 $45 $65 $60
Contributing Member $45 $40 $60 $55

Please consider how you may contribute to the success of CRAM. There are still opportunities for race committee trainee and regatta hospitality for the 2014 season. Please contact me if you want to volunteer or have questions regarding the new fee structure.

Sincerely,

Ed Cunningham

Commodore, 2014
