Boat Moving & Updates

Well the fall season is a wrap.  Great job!

Our next task is to move the boats inside for the winter.  The main concrete docks down at Zuanich are being replaced so we need to move the float our boats sit on so they can do the work.  The plan is to move the boats into the old Redden building near the Squalicum boat launch next Monday at 10:30.  Our hope is that most of you will be available since there is no school that day.  It will take a few hours to do this, so all the help we can get is appreciated.

Please let me know if you are not able to make it next Monday (11/11) at 10:30. 

Also, some of the techshirts ordered from last spring are still on back order and the latest update is they will be available in February.  But we have some and are getting those printed this week.  The rest of you we will be contacting to see if you want to continue the wait or get refunded.

Spring Schedule:
Here is the first draft of the spring schedule.  This will likely change a bit, but should be fairly close.

SAT Dates

Team,

I just wanted to make some recommendations for scheduling SAT testing. Below are dates and recommendations to avoid conflict with sailing.

TEST DATES
December 7, 2019 (Registration Deadline Nov 8th) - THIS IS THE BEST OPTION, SCHEDULE THIS NOW!
March 14, 2020 (Registration Deadline Feb 14) - THIS WILL CONFLICT WITH A REGIONAL REGATTA.
May 2, 2020 (Registration Deadline April 3, 2020) - THIS IS BAD.  IT WILL CONFLICT WITH DISTRICTS.  DON'T SCHEDULE THIS DATE.
June 6, 2020 (Registration Deadline May 8) - THIS OPTION IS FINE, WE WILL BE DONE.

Anyone good at welding?

As you might have noticed we could use another boat trailer.  My hope is to buy a trailer and build a rack on top.  The rack would need to be welded so I am seeing if anyone has good experience with this?  The rack would look like this:
