Commodore Harvey Rickert


Despite the weather our members are still able to enjoy the season on their boats be it racing, cruising , anchoring out overnight, or simply relaxing and enjoying cocktails on their boats or the clubhouse.

Commodore Harvey Rickert recently presented Brenda Marcks her Membership Committee flag.

All of the Bridge, Trustees, Staff Officers, and Committee Leaders are working hard to helping to make this summer enjoyable for all of our members.   In particularly, I would like to thank Brenda Marcks for all of her hard work as our Membership Committee Chair and for temporarily filling in as as Secretary.   On another good note - I want to report that Janice Hearst is back at the marina and resuming her duties as Secretary!   Welcome back Janice!   Thank you ladies for all that you do for our club. 

An auspicious event took place recently.  After 10 years of hard work the Buckeye Queen, owned by Mike and Lonnie Zofchak, was launched in front of a crowd of well wishers who helped them celebrate the event.  Congratulations to Mike and Lonnie!

As you may know by now, the Stein Hospice Race was great success with HBYC hosting the Stein Hospice Cup Race in the Bay, Thank you to Larry Hurst and Steve Gast and all who worked on the event.  I received many compliments from the visiting participants about the race, dinner, and the warm welcome they received from our members.

The whole purpose was to raise funds for Stein Hospice.  The final tally including,  racing fees, the dinner, 50/50 ticket sales, T-shirt sales and proceeds donated from club member Scott Voelker from the book sales of his wave runner travel adventure totaled over $2900.00.   Again kudos to all the members who supported this worthy cause.

Finally, I would like to remind everyone to order your tickets now for the August 17th Commodores Steak social spearheaded by Past Commodore Don Petsch and Sandy Biesenberger.  Great cuts of premium steaks to grill , corn on the cob, baked potato and all the fixings.  This event will follow the Fun Race in the Bay.  It would be great to see you there.  Guests are welcome!
