The 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Awards Presentation of the Conestoga Sailing Club will take place on Sunday, November 12th, at 1:30pm in the meeting room of the Granite Club at 99 Seagram Dr, Waterloo, ON.

Students of our summer Sailing Camp are welcome to attend the presentations, particularly the award recipients!

This year’s meeting will be quite interesting. After the awards presentation, we have a speaker from the University of Waterloo’s autonomous sailing team. These are bright young engineers and they will be using our club to test their boats.

The AGM is an important meeting to attend because members will elect a new Executive Board to carry out the club’s business for the coming year. We are also updating our by-laws to be consistent with current provincial legislation for not-for-profit clubs like ours. It is also an occasion to discuss any other matters of concern.

Agenda:

1:30 – 2:00 Social
2:00 Commodore’s Welcome
2:15 Annual Awards Presentation: Sailing School and club participants
2:45 Presentation by Seamus Johnson from UW SailBot team
3:15 AGM Business meeting

We hope to see many members and school participants! For questions, further details, or a copy of the AGM document package, please Email information@kwsailing.org.

UPDATED!

On Saturday-Sunday, August 19-20, 2017 we will be holding the Club Championships and Corn Roast. This is primarily for club members and guests, and open to all classes of boats. It’s club friendly, so you don’t need any experience. There will be a skippers meeting at 9:45 on Saturday to review the course and procedures, and first race will be about 10:30. We will be sailing until mid-afternoon with a break for lunch. Bring your own lunch.

On Saturday after the races we will be having a corn roast and pot-luck dinner at the club, open to everyone. The club will provide the corn, burgers and sausages, and you are asked to bring a salad or dessert to share with everyone. We are also asking for a $5.00 contribution to help offset the costs.

Racing will continue on Sunday, first race at 10:00.

For further details, please see the UPDATED PDF: Notice Of Race.

Note: there will also be an adult sailing class at the club on Saturday. For anyone who wants to use a club boat for the racing, please check with the instructor (Brynn) regarding which boats are available.

We hope to see everyone out there!
