Thanks to the members who have already signed up to bake cookies for the RRR!

We still need a few more members to help by baking cookies.  These cookies are for us to serve for snacks when the kids, coaches and volunteers come in from the race course!  The cookies have been a hit these past two years and were one of the reasons our regatta was named the Best Regatta in  the Texas Sailing Association Youth Series in 2016!

You may bring your cookies to the club on Friday, August 17, during Happy Hour. If this time is not convenient for you, please let me know and we will make arrangements to meet.   If you have questions, please contact me.
