Tropical Storm Harvey

          Tropical Storm Harvey looks like it is headed our way and has moved eastward compared to forecasts yesterday.  Here at Lakewood, Watt, Jon and myself have been in full preparation moving all of the Bay Access boats, coach boats, as well as derigging and relocating all the FJs.  If you have not already done so, we ask that you please come pick up your Lasers and Optis and other boats from the small boat pavilion and secure them elsewhere.
The Back-2-Sailing BBQ & Parent Meeting has been CANCELED and pushed back to Saturday, September 26th from 5-7pm following Saturday practices.  Please update your calendar books for this is an essential meeting for ALL sailors and parents; new or returning.  Thank you.
The Deadwood Regatta has been CANCELED and information for that will come out soon.  Please stay tuned to the new date and information.
As of now the High School Parent Meeting on Tuesday from 6-7pm, August 29th is still on.  As well as the High School Pizza Party on Wednesday immediately following school, on August 30th.
Volunteers would be appreciated next week either during the day or after school hours to put our FJs and other fleets back together.  Please contact MacKenzie if you are interested.

Storms a Comin’

Time to get your Optis and Lasers home safely!  The south side of the property will flood quickly, so please plan to make the move sooner rather than later.

At the print time of this post, the Sailing Center staff is preparing for a Harvey, moving boats and packing up lockers, while planning the regattas and coaching staff for the fall.  This makes us a very busy staff.  Please give us time to answer your calls, emails, and texts during this time while we prepare for the storm.  We hope that it does not bother our part of Texas and that all the preparation is unneeded, with that being said please pick up your boats from the club grounds, move all your equipment and toys to high ground, and please be sure to be safe.
