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.

Awaken the Artist March 2011

Darlene and Tony Taylor kindly offered to conduct an acrylic painting class over two Saturdays beginning March 12th and ending March 19th 2011. The intent of the sessions is to help students focus on the basics of color, design, and composition. Darlene brought 30 years of higher education art teaching background and Tony offered 30 years of architecture professional experience to some 16 students. Darlene started with the fundamentals of the color wheel and a break down of color issues such as warm (aggressive), cool (receding), hue, tint, tone, shade, intensity and value. She had class members paint in primary and secondary colors on a color wheel exercising color schemes including triad, split complementary, complementary, mono-chromatic, analogous achromatic, and diad. She touched on the elements of design including line, shape, form, value, color, space and texture. She offered a guide line of steps to creating a great acrylic painting. Then for three hours we all painted an abstract from a picture we individually brought to class. She provided the brushes, paints, and paintable sheets along with other support materials. She provided detailed instructions a week before the first session regarding what we should do and bring to the first class. Everyone enjoyed the learning, fun and joking about our individual talents or lack there of. It was a great contribution to club members and guests.

Game Nights

Feel like trying your luck at cards, cribbage, backgammon or the game of your choice. You bring the game¬† even Monopoly† and we'll play it. Of course there is no betting but what better way to have your Las Vegas fix without taking a trip.
