The Board of Trustees hope you all had a safe and wonderful July 4th holiday.
Our friends at the Chelsea Yacht Club will host our meeting.
Meet and Greet starts at 6:30pm followed by a fantastic dinner.
Featured guest speaker is Ms. Katie Axt from the NYSDEC who will
discuss how clubs can obtain permits to dredge, where to dispose
of the materials, and possible government funding. If your club
is in need of dredging we urge you to attend. Get the latest facts
asrequirements to dredge are always changing.
* Follow-up on DEC workshop held at Croton Yacht Club helping
clubs to prepare necessary DEC Storm Water Pollution Plan.
* Ethanol and proposed legislation to increase its amounts
in gasoline. How can we fight this proposal?
* USCG proposing new anchorage grounds for barges from Yonkers
to Kingston. One club mentioned it passes through their mooring field.
We need to stop turning the Hudson River into an unsafe barge parking lot that
restricts recreational boaters. Join in and help us take back our river.
See you all on the 26th.
