Hi David, yes, confirming that is a Sunday! Sorry about the St. Patrick's
Day weekend, but we really need to get started on planning for the season
:) Hopefully the party goers will be well asleep by lunchtime Sunday!

Hi-just checking on that date! March 18 is a Sunday, right? Also smacked
up in the middle St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Not my favorite time to be
Boston at a bar/restaurant! I will be there that’s the right time and day.

Hello everyone, and happy almost spring! We've started hearing peeps from
several corners of the blind sailing community, which must mean it's time
to stop hibernating and start planning for another great season on the
You are cordially invited to meet up at The Fours on March 18th, from
12:30 to 3 PM for lunch and to discuss the upcoming season. The Fours is
located at 166 Canal Street, close
to North Station. We will be looking for feedback on what worked well last
season, and what we would like to continue for this year!
Some topics include:
- this season's weekly practice schedule, including dedicated volunteers
to run practices
- recruitment of new guides and sailors
- the Robie Pierce Regatta
- blind windsurfing
- hosting the match racing nationals at CBI
- Olin's renewal of funds for this year's project
- and much much more!
Even if you did not participate a lot in BUBS practices and events last
year, if you are interested in sailing or guiding this season, please come
and join us! We welcome your input on how to make blind sailing a better
experience for you. Even if you consider yourself "retired," we would love
to hear your wisdom (and see you)!
This will be a productive time to shape the future of our program. We have
a lot to discuss, so let's stay on topic and focus on the upcoming season.
If there is a specific topic you would like to bring up, please send an
email ahead of time to bostonblindsailing@xxxxxxxxx.
Lunch is on the Association for Blind Citizens! Beers are on you. So come
and join us! Please RSVP to bostonblindsailing@xxxxxxxxx by Wednesday,
March 14th so we can get a headcount. Finally, if you've got a recruit,
pass the invitation along!
Hope to see you soon,
Inky & Grace
