 FYC Members – Mooring Drop Update:

Fellow FYC members,

On Monday, Oct. 21st the final mooring run of 5 was completed.

Down river inside string (5). Crew – Michel Goguen, Mike McKendy, Mike Stanley.

Special thanks to M. Goguen for towing out the pontoon boat. What a great Tacoma!

The pontoon boat now only awaits, blocking for freshet clearance, and covering.

On Saturday Oct. 19th, 3 mooring runs were performed totalling 28 mooring drops.

Upriver middle string (11). Crew – Andy Belyea, Dale Thibodeau, David West, Rod MacGregor.

Down River outer string (9). Crew – Graham Jefferies, Martin Laguë, Norman Knight, Troy Otis.

Down River middle string (8). Crew – Craig Schneider, Dino Kubik, Paul Meyer.

Previously, on Oct. 5th the two runs were:

Upper outside (8). Crew – Rod MacGregor, Ed Travis, Dennis Lovely,
Upper inside (9). Crew – John McKinney, Leonard Lee-White, Alec Lee-White and Rod MacGregor.

A big thanks to all who took a turn crewing. The weather was great for being on the water one last time!

This Fall was a good start to broader member participation in this necessary mooring work.

( From about 70 total FYC members, this fall 18 individual crew members worked the mooring drops.)

So the crew list is getting longer. More members are sharing in the work load. Which means less work for any one person.

I suggest we get even more members involved (those who are able) and strive for a yearly/seasonal goal of 36 individual members (18 each in spring and fall).

Come spring 2020, if you are not among the crew list above, please volunteer.

Thanks.

Jack Kipping
