President's Message July 2024

Our 49th Annual Boat Show is in the books. Congratulations to VP/Boat Show Chair Mickey Schillizzi for a job well done. A huge Thank You to all those who volunteered to help make the show a great success. Even the weather cooperated.  Our boat show was the last beautiful day before the summer heat wave hit!

How lucky we are to be able to hold our boat shows at such a wonderful venue, the historic Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club. We are so appreciative of the hospitality the Commodores and the Yacht Club have always extended our club.

Not only was our boat show a success, but our June 12th Cruise Night was one of the best. We had a total of 11 boats and 18 people. VP Mickey Schillizzi was the cruise leader in Cody Brooke; his 1959, 20 ft Chris-Craft, Sportsman. For those of you who may not know it, Cody Brooke is named after Laura and Mickey’s grandchildren (Cody and Brooke).

Cruise Nights are still scheduled for July 25th, leaving from in front of the LH Yacht Club at 6:30pm, and August 8th, leaving from in front of the Windlass at 6:30pm. If the water level and weather cooperate, we plan to have Cruise Nights continuing into September and October.

Our Surf and Turf dinner is Wednesday, August 14th. Information and sign-up for the dinner will be coming out shortly.

I hope you have been saving Sept. 14th for our 50th year Commemorative Celebration It is still in the planning stages. Barbara Edwards, Mike Smith and their group of volunteers have been working diligently in planning an exciting and fun event to celebrate our 50th year as a boat club!

It is worth noting that many of the boats in our club are over 70 years old. Kenny and Cindy Heaton’s Fry Denny, St. Lawrence Skiff is 105 years old! When these boats were built, no one thought they would be in use so many years later. Let’s get these boats out on the water and celebrate that they still exist!

Hope to see you on the water,

Ray Reynolds
