Betty joined the Deckhand Board Sunday, January 31, OPENING DAY, Theme: Music of 50 yrs Ago (1966) nineteen years ago. She's held every position except Treasurer (That would 9:00 am -1:00 pm Table decorating at the Bulkhead have been a disaster, - quote from Betty), and Second Vice President of Purchasing/Locker. Ironically, the Locker became her forte and she served as the Assistant Second Vice President of Purchasing/Locker for many years, and continues as a 'background consultant' to this day. Becky Dodini was on the Deckhands Board for over 25 years and serves as the Board of Directors Advisor as well as the Locker/Merchandise Advisor and is invaluable in her service with the countless volunteer hours she dedicates to the Deckhands Locker. Between the two of them, their numerous hours of dedication and commitment to the Locker and our Board Members during this past year most clearly went above and beyond what was required and that is why they were recognized with this award. If you see them, please congratulate them!

8 Tennis Fleet Donlei Darnell The Tennis Fleet is traditionally quiet in December as everyone is busy with Christmas, yearend events (think Commodore's Ball, Awards Banquet) and New Year's activities. So we don't have a tournament or a potluck but we did have a wonderful dinner at KYC on December 27 catered by the KYC galley. The meal was great and we thank the staff for their superb service. Everyone looked sparkly and fresh and a good time was had by all. Recapping 2015 winners: we have the Tom Collins Tournament in May with Linnea Brooks and Betsy Denzer for the women and Keegan Giles and Rob Rietow for the men. In October's Clare Lang Tournament the winners were the team of Rob Rietow and Sue Ashford. Their names will be added to the trophies. Season's Points was awarded to Betsy Denzer and Rob RietowRob sure got around the tournaments in 2015! Kit Beuret announced that the calendar for 2016 has been sent to members via email and it looks like it will be an exciting year. Planned are the annual Shrimp Boil, three catered dinners and various themed potlucks including Irish, Asian, Italian, German, Family Favorites, Courtside BBQ, and Wild West (think Corinne Waterhouse Chili!). Our exciting Tom Collins and Clare Lang tournaments will be in May and September. Watch our Tennis Fleet Bulletin Board for reminders as each date approaches. The fleet is always happy to announce new members and some of our newest members are Lynn Pease, Barbra Green, and Richard LeClerc. Tell your friends what a great group we are.. ask if they want to join! At $20 a year per person, it is worth every penny!

15 A Christmas Tree An 18 Norfolk Island Pine nicknamed Bruce the Spruce started off his Hawaiian life in a small pot about 25 years ago. He was the family Christmas tree for Tony and Irene Slater for several years, constantly outgrowing his pot. Slaters moved to the mainland and Spotz and Ramona Robertson took Bruce and planted him in their front yard as a free range tree, and he prospered mightily. On 29 Nov 2008, Joe Starr, Don Brown, Jerry Small, Charlie Stone and Mike Morelli harvested about 20 of Bruce for the KYC tree in the bar. Ramona supervised and Bruce became rejuvenated and grew large again. On 29 Nov 2015, Noodle Leary and Sime and John Gross took Bruce to task again and harvested another 17 for this years tree. Bruce will rise again, see you in 2022.

We have run lots of races and we have tried to do a good job. Sure, some of our lines might not have been completely straight, but the wind shifts (surely a flying-sleigh-pilot like yourself should understand that). We might have blown an errant horn on occasion or raised the wrong flag once in a while. But, we tried really hard, we hope to have avoided the naughty list. We deserve more than a lump of coal! So Santa, here is what the Race Committee would like for Christmas this year: We would like all the racers to read the Sailing Instructions (SIs) before the race (crew too!). Can you have them register for the race before the race, preferably at least a day in advance and not when they are on the water, Santa? Especially the dinghy sailors! Can you let them know? The right sail numbers on the sails is always nice. You know the ones they register. And if they have to change sails that is OK. Just let us know the numbers change, preferably in writing. We also dont like white sail numbers; they are really hard to see. Read the SIs did we ask for that already? Oh, if a boat quits a race, especially a long distance race, could you have them radio the committee boat. We are listening! I promise we will respond. If we dont it is because we didnt hear you. They can call again when they get closer. We arent supposed to give information to sailors from the committee boat. So have them read the SIs so we dont have to act like we are being smug. We would love to have people volunteer on the committee boat, just one or two days a year. Skipper or crew members are welcome. We have fun. And, they will learn something We would love it if all our equipment worked. It seems something is always breaking down. Perhaps you can bring the racers a little extra sympathy this year when we do have that inevitable equipment failure. And beer, we always like beer. So Santa, there are probably a few other things we would like, but that will do for now. What we really want is good racing and for everyone to have fun. We promise to try to be good again in 2016. Communications, AV/IT, Navigation Merry Christmas to everyone! All the Race Committees (Scuttlebutt)
