Bob Cole gave an update about our upcoming Lake Weir Invitational and Harpoon Nationals Regatta on April 26 & 27, 2014. The location will be Carney Island Park this year instead of the Kiwanis Club due to a mistaken double booking by the Kiwanis Club. We have now booked pavilions at Carney Island for the Regatta headquarters and the Lake Weir Yacht Club for the banquet on Saturday night. Patti Moring will be catering the food. This change in venue will reduce the overall cost of the Regatta. We will plan to include the cost of the Carney Island entrance fee in the Regatta Registration Fee.
Several guests were introduced ~ thanks for joining us!
