Houston Canoe Club
General Membership Meeting
July 12th, 2017
Bayland Park Community Center
Recorder: Frank Ohrt

Vice-commodore Ann Derby, serving as Acting Commodore, called the meeting to order. She introduced the officers present; Webmaster Harmon Everett, and Recorder Frank Ohrt. Christy Long served as Acting Fleet Captain, and Terri Herdlicka as Acting Boatswain. All other officers were suffering from illness, indifference, or employment.

Ms. Derby noted the pre-meeting dinner at Thai Cottage.

The Acting Boatswain reported that there were three new members (Joshua Dimailig, Kori Lugar, and Cathy Conklin), for a total membership of 144, and one visitor (Don Harbour).

Ms. Derby reported that the Purser had reported that, as usual, we are in good shape financially.

The Acting Fleet Captain reported that the only trips in the previous month were a trip on the San Marcos River with Debbie Snow and John Ohrt, and that Frank Ohrt attended the Carolina Canoe Club’s Week of Rivers Festival. Ms. Snow and Mr. Ohrt reported briefly on their respective adventures.

The only upcoming trip announced was a trip on the San Marcos on July 15, led by Ms. Long. She also noted the Wild and Scenic Film Festival on August 17 at Star Cinema Grill. Tom Douglas said that the “Slipstream” video service had lots of good outdoor films, for $5.00/month.

The grand total of club trips so far this year was 18. with 65 participants, and a total of 1,890 miles paddled.

Ms. Derby announced the evenings program of paddling films, featuring as much as time would allow of “The Call of the River”, a history of whitewater paddling. It was pretty good, so perhaps we can see the rest of it next time.

Ms. Derby called the meeting to a close, and we all scurried to put everything away and head home.
