2021 Wild Turkey Regatta

This past weekend the club hosted our annual Thistle regatta, dubbed the “Wild Turkey”. (Rumor has it, that was the prize back in the old days)   Despite the truly daunting forecast (i.e. “hot, humid, and no wind”), six boats made the trek down to Lake Sinclair and managed to put in 3 races on Saturday and 2 more on Sunday morning. Yes, the wind was light but it was enough for Thistles and it held a relatively steady direction.  Below are a few pictures for your enjoyment.

June Work day Report

Robert & Jack Dekle, Dave Shultz, Mike Wisdom, Jimmy Harrell, Billy Allen, Tanner Schultz, Mark Sullivan, Tom Poth, Jennifer Blackwell, Dick Mueller, Jim Weadick, Dave & Harriett Morris, Seth & Kate Van Huss, Wayne Stone, Jay Harrell, and member-candidate Michael Conners made for an attendance record-breaking (at least, in our tenure as B&G co-chairs) work day, Saturday.

The lawn areas were all mowed and all of the grounds were trimmed by numerous people; limbs, pine cones and other debris was picked up; the beach was raked, grass was pulled and shoveled up; the former swim dock lines were retrieved for cleanup and eventual replacement; the committee boat was given a maintenance run; the fence at the end of Yacht Club Rd. was straightened as much as possible; ‘E’ dock was patched creatively and cost effectively; the concrete areas below the clubhouse were pressure washed; the clubhouse was cleaned; and an enjoyable lunch was provided for the attendees.

It was an incredible beehive of activity all around the club. Barbara and I cannot thank folks enough for their energy and enthusiasm Saturday. The club continues to look better, and it’s the teamwork of our workday crew that makes the difference.

We will do it again, but owing to the July 4th weekend, the next work day will be one week later than usual: July 10th.
