Our End-of-Season Banquet will be at Mickey's Roadside Cafe in Enfield on Sunday, October 29th (drinks 5:30pm; order dinner at 6:00pm). Ordering is off the menu with specials, so there's no tickets to purchase. Contact Bill Fontaine if you plan to come so we can have a head count, which will allow the staff at Mickey's accommodate everyone. Bill's contact info can be found in the Contacts link in the left navigation menu.

Work Day - Sat. Oct. 28 @ 9am

posted Oct 23, 2017, 5:00 PM by William Fontaine

Yes, it's true, it's the end of October and it's time to pack up the club for the winter. The good news is that it shouldn't take much more than 2 hours for us to get everything taken care of, so it's more of a work morning than a work day. There will be teams to button up the club boats, organize and pack the storage barn, and sort out the waterfront. Contact Bill Fontaine if you have any questions (see CONTACTS in the left menu).

Labor Day, September 4th we're holding a sailing poker derby. And yes, there will be amazing prizes! We'll have a skippers meeting at 1pm where all will be explained. At 4:30pm we'll start up the grill for some burgers & dogs. We'll also supply cold drinks. The rest is potluck. It's been a great summer so far, but there's plenty of good sailing left before the end of October. Hope to see you there!

4th of July BBQ / Potluck - Tues. at Noon

posted Jun 30, 2017, 11:22 AM by William Fontaine

The July 4th BBQ gets underway at noon at 194 Main St. Enfield.

We will be starting up the grill -  hot dogs and some burgers. Cold drinks will also be available. You are welcome to bring items to grill as well. Bring something to share (chips, salad, etc.) There will be plenty of time to go sailing after the BBQ. The long range forecast looks promising (fingers crossed).

Parking? 
With a little luck some of the parking area by the lake will be available.

If not, our backup plan is that you drop off your guests, supplies, etc. and park at the Luthern Church parking lot on Main St.  We’ll shuttle you back to the BBQ.

Mascoma Sailing Club Memorial Day Potluck Picnic, Open House, & Annual Meeting

 
Monday, May 29th is our Memorial Day Picnic / Open House / Annual Meeting

Location: 194 Main Street, Enfield NH (The lakeside property immediately adjacent to the Rail Trail overpass)

Parking: Please use the parking area at the Mascoma Lakeside Park

The Picnic starts at 12 noon (well, that’s when we fire up the gas grill…)
 
This is a great event to meet other members and get involved with the Club. Remember that this is a sailing club, which means that if you need help launching your boat, want to sail with other people, or have opportunities to race, this is a great way to make new friends with a common interest. Bring your friends who may be interested in joining the club.

*Hot dogs & burgers will be supplied with ketchup, mustard, and relish. And napkins!
*Please note, you are welcome to bring along something else to grill (veggie burgers, kabobs, etc.)
*Cold drinks will be supplied by the Club
*Bring something to share if you like (chips, a salad, brownies, etc.)

Tarps will be set up if rain is in the forecast, or to provide relief from the sun.
 
***There should be plenty of time for sailing if we have a fair breeze and nice weather.  
 
Annual Meeting (1:30pm)
 
After everyone has had enough to eat, we will hold our annual meeting. We will endeavor to keep our annual meeting short & to the point.
 
There will be very very brief reports from the Commodore, the Treasurer, and other club officers.
 
We will then elect board members.

Hope to see you there!
