October 16th 2009 the St. Louis Sail and Power Squadron held
it's October General Membership Meeting and Annual Auction
at the Duck Club Yacht Club. Twenty five people gathered for
this event. This included new members Sue and Chuck Kraeger
who transfered to us from Singing River Sail and Power Squadron
part of District 15 in Mississippi. We gathered at 6:00 PM
for cocktails and socializing. The Silect
set up in
and people migrated that way when they showed up and started
their bidding war. We all then went back to the main dining
room and conducted a brief general membership meeting. A terrific
diner was served to us by the Duck Club staff. The auction
was wrapped up and money collected. A slide presentation was
given of the District 30 Cruise and Rendezvous in Frisco, Colorado.
Those that were present that also attended the C&R gave their
commentary on the event. Activities wrapped up about 10:00
PM and everyone retreated to their cars for their trips home.
All in all a pretty good turnout with folks cathing up on what
is going on in each others lives.
