 Another year is in the history books. What won't be forgotten is the spectacular organization, service and magnificent hospitality of the Okoboji Yacht Club. What is it? Is it simply the spacious lawn where we all fit? Is it Iowa casualness (triggered by the calm, organized manner of OYC) which allows us to relax amongst our friends so appreciatetively? Is it the cadre of volunteers who  are plentiful but so gentle in their guidance of our large herd? Take for example the pleasant voices over the intercom who led us through a massive food line or announced the change in plans in mooring removal. It's always with a welcoming demeanor. Simply, Okoboji is the best, most relaxing venue. The same folks volunteering day after day - not only the regatta chairs Brigid Wilkening and her cohort  Kirsty Thoreson but Brad and Sheryl Jones who never left the property, the boat drivers who so faithfully and patiently stayed by our side through long days. The food organizer was a picture of cool when we rushed the facility. Lastly, to Brad Farrar - you are a wonder! More energy than all the sailors combined, handling food, beverage, RC, scoring, facility, deliveries, financials ---- you are a whiz! We should all have a Brad Farrar at our clubs. 
To the sailors --- what a grand year this was. Some breakout performances on the junior side. Consistency in the third and fourth places - you are often forgotten in the hubbub of first and second. What fine, fine sailor you are! Those who jumped into the top ten - you have shown streaks of brilliance all year. It is always so fun and rewarding to RC to see each sailor have that one great leg, that one fantastic mark rounding. You are all rock stars in your own way. Thanks for your perseverance with our sport. 
Goodbye from Okoboji and look for another update from Clear Lake, IA where we currently have 90 regisered Optis ready for their turn.
