2015 Planning Meeting

Club members gathered on February 8 at Galesville Memorial Hall to plan the calendar of events for 2015. We have a full and varied schedule for the season, including the traditional Spring Symposium and Crab Feast as well as a return visit to the Wye Island DNR Conference Lodge. Check out the Events Calendar to see all of the activities and dates. Note, some dates and locations are still being determined.

Change of Watch Dinner

CBTSC's annual meeting and change of watch took place at Maryland Yacht Club on November 8th. Thirty members mingled over cocktails before dinner in the clubhouse. After dessert, Commodore Reynolds presided over a brief business meeting, thanked those who hosted raft-ups and land events in 2014, and asked for unanimous approval of the slate of new officers.
