Awards Party Up Date

Awards 2011 Message and Tosts  from the Commodore:
I’d like to thank all of you for making this season a success with your involvement, be that behind the scenes or showing up at an event on the water. Here are some highlights of our SEAS season.
Back in February we launched Sailors Talk, a great new winter gathering.     
A big thanks to Sean and Gerald for making their Northwind offices available and hosting some great discussions on numerous topics all having the common theme of Sailing.
Here’s to Northwind
This new event came out of the new Education Committee - Jason Fagel, Anthony Crupi and Sean Boily brought some great energy to expanding one of the SEAS missions, that of educating the Juneau community to the benefits and joys of sailing. 
Here’s to the Education committee
 
More events….T
The SEAS Cup race series and Sprit of Admiralty Race where organized by the race committee,  Wade Rogers, Jim Green, Mike Rentel, Joel Osberng brought us a wonderful collection of great days on the water . I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that many of my favorite summer days on the boat was made possible by the running of these races.
Here’s to the Race Committee…..
Behind the scenes a group of individuals contributed a great deal of time to getting out the word and promoting our events and mission by working on our new Communications Committee. Zach Wilkinson*, Patti Harper, Brian Lieb, and Patricia Mason wrote copy served as spokes persons, posted web stories and helped increase SEAS profile in Juneau .
Here’s to the Communications Committee…. 
Get out the Boat the SEAS Parties and our participation in the Juneau Maritime Festival rounded out the fun factor for us this season. All in all SEAS sponsored 34 events this season.. and these where made possible by membership involvement, through participation, organizing and having fun sailing in Juneau.
