account proceeds and expenses as of year to date. Ted

year. Back in 2000 there were only 35 members. He also
mentioned that it has helped that Tower is sending out application with
Joe Brutsche is gone till July 13th, and Commodore Gerry Allred will
take over the treasurer’s responsibility in his absence.
Venetian Update: Sam Bowen is heading this up for
THYC. Pirates are the theme. He updated the
board that 3 or 4 boats have committed to being in the Venetian Boat
Parade representing THYC. Sam also mentioned that this year we
get points on Dingy Poke Race, Volunteers at Beer Tent, the Venetian
Boat Parade. Sam will have a sign-up sheet at the July 5th
Pancake Breakfast. Sam will organize members from Tower to meet
prior to the Dingy Poker and all go over together. He has also
ordered Pirate Bandanas to give out to THYC Dinghy’s
participants. THYC has $ 1000 in the budget for Venetian
Expenses. It was mentioned from Julie Yoder that
Tower is donating to Venetian Festival, and that THYC does not need to
donate money to the festival (per Tower).
Gerry Allred had asked Tower for $ 750 for parties, plus additional
money for Venetian. Tower will give THYC $ 750 as a 1 time check,
but denied Venetian money since they are donating to Venetian
directly. Gerry will talk to RJ about donating more money to THYC
for our Venetian effort. This money would be for THYC
It was discussed that Tower removed the Display case at THYC. No
one knows where it is. No more discuss was brought up about this.
It was discussed by Commodore Gerry Allred that the Felony phrase is now gone from the application.
Burgees: Ted will get 25 burgees to Gerry to sell at THYC outings.
Pancake Breakfast: It was suggested by Keith Morgan to add an
additional Pancake Breakfast. The additional breakfast is now
scheduled for Saturday July 5th from 9 am- ? Keith has already
secured volunteers for the extra breakfast. Julie Yoder was OK
with this and it will not interfere with her Latitude & Attitudes
