Maskwa off season update!

Hi Gang!!

As the deep cold settles in, we know we are getting closer to sailing season!!!!

Strictly Sail

This weekend is Strictly Sail; we have not done our usual footwork leading up to the big sailing event of the winter, however if people would like to get together before or after the show, please let me know; we usually go for around 2pm at Bubba Gump on Saturday. For those who have never been there, this is a good place to get discounted gear, etc, to get ready for the season. I have not yet heard of any groups offering discounted tickets; maybe our brother Sabu Gillespie knows of some discounts?

Maskwa "Christmas" Holiday Festival Extravaganza!!

This year is planned for :

Saturday, Feb 1st, at Casa Waller
time - 'eveningish' till the cows come home

I believe Ute still has the Twister game; if anyone has other fun games we can play, please volunteer to bring them along; Don usually sets out a nice spread, but if you have a special dish you would like to share, please let Don or me know, and we'll make sure there is room.

We know some people are stuck with public transportation… if you happen to be one of them, and you can't arrange a ride, again, let me know, and we will figure something out. Plenty of room, lots of vehicles.

If you know of any prospective Maskwa peeps, this is a good time to bring them out to meet the crew; Bonus, we can see how they handle their booze, so we can see if they are true Maskwa Crew!!

Again, I will be collecting food for the Chicago Food Depository; if you have canned goods, or boxed goods that will not expire too readily, please bring some. We usually get a good sized box for me to drop off, and it is a great charity.

Speaking of charities, Just a reminder that Feb 8th, I am doing the Cycle for Survival, a 4 hour ride with 100% of the proceeds going to research for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, a center that specializes in rare cancers. That's right, 100%. No executive pay, no advertising, all the money goes to research. All donations are tax deductible, and you can donate anonymously, if you desire. MY goal is to bike the entire 4 hours, if they let me. You can click on the link at the top of this
paragraph, or here, conveniently located- http://mskcc.convio.net/site/TR/CycleforSurvival/AG_Cycle_Event?px=2774564&pg=personal&fr_id=1970

In the next few days I will be completely updating the Maskwa Blog, since they have the 2014 (but not the 2914) race schedule out already; I will be putting in the races we are most likely to participate in. We had a smashingly good season in 2013, our best season ever. We did miss out on overall Best of Lake Michigan (Port to Port) by exactly 1 (one!!!!) point to Defiance. If we had simply sailed another Port to Port, we would have had that, too, with the incredible score we built up. Any way you slice it, it is very hard to argue with this picture from the Boater's Bash. Let me know if you can come on Feb 1st, if you need directions, or if you would like to introduce a prospective new sailor to the mix.

Until then, fair winds and following seas!!
