The Annual DCYC Heritage Cub 2017 regatta has come and gone. Personally, I believe it was a great success and would like to thank all of those that participated. We had 36 boats on the water and without boats on the water it wouldn’t be much of a regatta, so a big Thank You to all those that traveled—some as far away as Corpus Christi—as well our members here at the club.
Regattas just don’t happen without a lot of planning and help. Thank God for Charles and Janell Hoffman who co-chaired in 2016 and chaired this year (2017) and have been planning and preparing this since last year. What great leadership we had with them at the helm.
It’s a long list but would also like to recognized the following:
Cash Sponsors: Slalom Shop, SVT Tronics, ACR Realty Inc, David & Kristin Lyon, Steve & Sheryl Stout, Charles & Janell Hoffman, John Pearson and Mr. Anonymous.

If you did not participate, you missed out on a great opportunity to make a lot of friends working shoulder to shoulder. I have personally been involved for the last 7 years and see a lot of the same volunteer’s year after year and it’s time for those not participating to step up and share in this great effort.
See you next Year!
