Opening Day –
All over the country the beginning of the new season arrives with each spring. That is cause for celebration! Here in San Diego, although we are bless with boating weather all year long, and where we use our boats all year, it is simply a reason for a big party! This is a very big event in our club’s calendar. A Marine Band plays, the Marine Color Guard displays our Nation’s Colors proudly, officers, past commodores and dignitaries are introduced, awards are presented and other ceremonies are conducted. The ceremonies are followed by a champagne reception. You are all invited to participate. Lets start the 2014 boating season with a bang!
We are requesting your support (i.e clean up, food preparation, set-ups, etc, etc, etc.) and voluntarism. More to follow shortly.

DUTY OFFICER WATCH ROOSTER NOW AVAILABLE FOR SIGN UPS
The Duty Officer List is posted, and can be accessed on the SMYC Web page under Member Information.
Please look at the watch list and sign up for a day or two. The watches are on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. If everyone signs up for just one day we can easily fill the rooster.
Watch Duty Expectations
The duty officers are very important to the club. They provide a welcome to people around the marina and information about our club, which often leads to new memberships.
As duty officer of the day, you are responsible for opening up the clubhouse at 10:00am. (You will be able to get the key from the marina office.)
As the Watch Captain, you will hoist the club burgees and U.S flag. (The duty watch notebook shows flag positions.) You will also keep a record on a Duty Officer sheet in the notebook telling what transpires during the day.
If you have free time, you can help keep the clubhouse tidy and clean.
At closing time, 2:00pm, you fold all flags, store and put everything in clubhouse, and lock the door.
Remember it is important that you are social with any visitors and help with any information that is requested.
Thank you for taking time to support the club.
If you have any questions, please contact Scott Krefft at (951) 699-1459.
