What’s been happening lately with the GenOA Committee
The GenOA’s have been very busy of late, meeting twice in the last two weeks. First they met Friday November 26 for their November Committee Meeting, Second they met on Saturday December 4th for their White Party on the Pier.
The White Party was a great event for the GenOA’s, even with having to relocate into the yard due to inclement weather. With a turnout of approximately 50-55 attendees, everyone getting to try some delicious Paella, and the event coming in well under budget, we can definitely consider this event a great success.
At their November committee meeting they were very busy with plans for the White Party, the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron Interclub Youth Regatta, the Wednesday Twilight GenOA League, the Off the Beach GenOA Junior day and their new sustainability project.
Two key elements they would like to announce following this meeting are:
The GenOA Environmental Sustainability Project – Starting Jan 2022 new bins will be placed around the marina specifically for collecting Aluminum Beer and Soft Drink Cans. The collection of these cans is an endeavour to raise money for further environmental sustainability implementation around the club. Keep an eye out for these bins being posted at the main arm of the Marina with more details about the project being announced shortly.
The GenOA League – Running every second Wednesday Twilight in 2022, boats will be encouraged to ensure they have a minimum 30% members under 35 years old onboard to be eligible for an additional end of season trophy! More details to come.
