Dear LOCA Members,
Due to the high water levels and the unprecedented disruptions at many marinas and yacht clubs around the lake the LOCA executive has decided to cancel our August Rendezvous this year.
Many thanks to Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club “CBYC” for their consideration in spite of the difficult circumstances at their facility. We wish them all the best as they continue to recover from the impact of the high water levels.
We are planning a fun and exciting post haulout land-based event for the fall! Details with be posted on the LOCA website when plans are finalized so please stay tuned!
Also, please note that our AGM will be held at the Toronto Boat Show on Saturday January 13, 2018. Details will be posted on our website when they become available.
All the best for the remainder of this historical season!
Your LOCA Executive
Well hello all.
This has been a slow year for us on Lake Ontario. Also for the LOCA group. We are still working on the end of season meetup. As of this time it is still in the air.
I really did not have a lot new to post. There is Catalina facebook group. There are association websites. But we really do not have anything for Lake Ontario owners specifically. It would be nice if we could keep it going.
Its a great place to post if you are heading out somewhere.. maybe someone would meet up. If you were interested. But we have to know.
Anyway. That’s all for now. I hope you are at least able to get out and enjoy your boat.
The events poster for the SIDI is up. Take a look.
Just thought I would point out again that LOCA has a Bulletin Board system now that you can post to and Chat.
If you want to sign up go to http://docksidechandlery.com/loca_forum/ and make sure you give me the name you registered here under and you will have full membership status on the forum.
I think forums are a great way to talk, organize, ask for help, any type of communication that is sailing or C30 related.
I hope to see more of you there. Lets Chat!
Hello fellow members of LOCA.
I wanted to introduce myself to those who I might not have met at the AGM. I am a new member to the group. James Schofield. I am also now the Vice Commodore of Communications and membership.
I will be trying hard this coming year to come up with ideas of boosting membership, and making your membership in LOCA more enjoyable and valuable. Because we all want to feel we are getting value out of our association.
To start I would like to introduce a new forum we have available. Go to www.docksidechandlery.com/loca_forum and take a look. Please join up.. and stay tuned there as that is a more interactive way to stay involved with the group. News, discussions, polls etc can be handled there much more easily than on this blog.
I hope to meet everyone. Continue to send to the addresses you have, I now will be the one to handle and respond to correspondence to the group.
Fair winds to all, and see you soon.
The Lake Ontario Catalina Association’s annual general meeting will be held on Saturday January 20th at 11am. in the Ennercare Building on the Toronto Exhibition grounds. This is the first day of the Toronto Boat Show and your new Membership or Membership renewal will provide you with 2 tickets to the show courtesy of Swans Yacht Sales.
This year is the 25th anniversary of LOCA. To mark this milestone we have Charmaine Meyer LOCA’s first Commodore as our guest speaker. Charmaine and her husband Tom have sailed many miles over and have many interesting tales to share.
Join us for this important event in room C2 in the Ennercare building which is located near the “D” hall doors
There are a couple of Board openings to be elected this year. Vice-Commodore of Membership and Communications and a Director at Large. Speak to any of our Board members before the meeting if you would be interested in these posts
Membership registrations and renewals will be accepted at the door before the meeting. Please bring your forms and payment with you if you have not already sent them in.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting
Your LOCA Executive Board
