Mother nature did her best to try to keep attendance down. A snow storm
kept some people away including Rick West who made it as far as Colorado before
being sent back to California. Maybe next year Rick.
Anyway, we still had around 15 people show up. A good mix of locals,
Columbia MYC and State College MYC members. Besides Fred Maurer and Ray
Houtz, new member Ron Slater made the long snowy journey from State
College. Ron brought his new Robin hull for us to pour lead into and
install the Rinehart rudder.
New Toys: Bob Kjellberg brought his new ballast mold. It is made
out of a stepping stone concrete. The results were terrific. Bob
poured four ballasts in record time. One met an early demise due to an act
of stupidity on my part.
Mark Rinehart brought a new deck jig for me. A really neat tool that
sets the stations at the right width. No more masking tape and string for
New Boats: Nancy Maurer, Ray Houtz, Hal Slentz-Whalen and Ron Slater.
All got lead ballast either placed or poured.
