Last weekend was the Change of Watch for IOBG Delta District 19. I was installed as president for 2015 on Saturday night. I'm going to recap the weekend for everyone as it was very special.
Five boats set out around noon Friday and headed for Marina West Yacht Club. It was supposed to rain and it did right before we got to Marina West. It rained to beat the band and all of us that were in charge of manning the lines were soaked pretty good.
We all got tied up and then the party began. Hubby and I had made arrangements for all members of Delta Marina Yacht Club (I'm a past commodore of that club) for a hosted bar from 5 to 8 and supplied the docking for all the boats that showed up on Friday. Additionally we supplied dinner for everyone. Pizza, salad and cherry dump cake. A great time was had by all.
On Saturday morning hubby and I supplied breakfast on the docks to include Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's. Prior to breakfast three more boats arrived to join the festivities. We had a total of eight boats for the weekend.
Saturday night we had a fabulous dinner prepared by Marina West Yacht Club. After dinner Past International President Gary McGrath conducted the oath of office. At that point I was the president of IOBG District 19.
Why did we do so much for our yacht club members? Because of their support. We had 14 past commodores, that are members of Delta Marina Yacht Club in attendance. Those 14 past commodores are also members of IOBG District 19. Many of them rejoined IOBG after I started up the chairs. It was our way of showing our appreciation for all their support. It was a weekend I will always remember fondly.
