The Next Potluck Meeting is July 10th at 6:00 PM
I want to thank Jon Martin for arranging to have the US Coast Guard come to our June Potluck. They discussed details about how to contact the Coast Guard when you are in trouble on your vessel. The speakers were BM2 Alexander Franzese, ME3 Samuel Rankin, and Seaman Kristen Pruitt. They shared the following critical information. When you have a MAY DAY call, and you have a cell phone, call the Sector Puget Sound office first at (206) 217-6001 instead of our local Coast Guard office. You will get help faster.
Every one of our club members enjoyed going out to the break-water with the Coast Guard members and shooting off flares to see how they react. Mike Reed was out in his boat a mile from shore firing off different types of flares so that we could see what they look like. Three boats came by Mike to see if he needed help during the drill. Wow, it actually works!!!! It was a very educational evening for everyone.
Be sure and save the date for our next Potluck Dinners in the summer on July 10th and August 14th. We will not have speakers until September. If anyone one has a great idea for a speaker, please call Lesli Beasley at (360) 201-1669. I really appreciate any help and ideas for subjects that you are interested in hearing more about.
