Sailors and Parents,PRE-SEASON MEETINGOur pre-season meeting will Monday August 27th, 6:00pm at Lakewood. We ask that both parents and sailors of new and returning sailors attend this meeting. We will be going over practice and regatta schedules, travel plans, fundraising, etc. If you know someone interested in joining the team, this would be a good meeting for them to attend, so pass this along. For a head start on the meeting go to our website, www.whatcomsailing.com. Fall schedule and forms are posted.At the meeting please bring your team dues for the year and all paperwork. Attached you will find all the paperwork that is needed. All sailors, new and returning, must fill out all the forms in the packet with the exception of the Survey and WWU Alumni application if you have done this already. Lots of forms and waivers to fill out and sign I realize, but please do this in advance and bring them to the meeting so we can be done with it.Dues are $150 for the year. Make checks payable to Whatcom Community Sailing. There is also a $35 dollar fee for a WWU Alumni membership. Each sailor must have their own individual membership. If you have this already please provide proof, either alumni card, receipt, etc. If you need to purchase the membership, fill out the form and bring a check for $35 made out the WWUAA.
