Another America’s Cup 34 Call to Action

(From the Yacht Racing Association of San Francisco Bay E-Bulletin)

Things are still going strong for the bid to bring the America’s Cup to San Francisco Bay and there are several key meetings coming up where we need a strong show of support from the sailing community.

Mark your calendars and if possible, plan on attending these upcoming meetings:

  • Tuesday, November 30th, 2010. This a special meeting of the Port Commission to review the Host City Agreement. The meeting begins at 9:30 am and will be held at the Port Commission Hearing Room, Second Floor of the Ferry Building. More information on the Port of San Francisco website.
  • Wednesday, December 8th, 2010. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors Budget & Finance Committee Meeting at City Hall. This meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday, December 1st but has been rescheduled for the 8th. The meeting begins at 11:00 am, but no word yet on exactly what time the American’s Cup will be on the Agenda. Check the Board of Supervisors website next week for a copy of the agenda.
  • Tuesday December 14th, 2010. The Full San Francisco Board of Supervisors Meeting. This meeting was originally scheduled for the 7th, but Members of the Board felt they needed additional time to understand the financial impacts and benefits to the City of hosting the 34th America’s Cup so it has been pushed back to the 14th. Again, check the Check the Board of Supervisors website the week of the 13th for a copy of the agenda.

Can’t make it to a meeting? How about sending emails of support. Here are the contact emails for key players in the campaign to bring the 34th America’s Cup to San Francisco:

And lastly, don’t forget to help spread the word! Get everyone you know involved in the campaign. We are at the helm of a tremendous opportunity and with your support, we will realize it.

Happy Thanksgiving from TIYC!

TIYC has many things to be thankful for this year, so we wanted to open up a discussion for members and friends to reach out on the holiday, share warm wishes and their own spin on what we are giving thanks for this year.

This year, we’re thankful for:

  • Ray Zahnd and our incredible House Committee for all of their tireless work this year.
  • The great times had on this year’s trip to the Delta.
  • Wonderful meals we shared together as a club, and in particular, those who helped made them happen.
  • All of our reciprocal cruise-in clubs, and the clubs who hosted us in 2010.

For all of the things I’ve certainly forgotten, please feel free to use the Comments section below to share what you and your family are thankful for this year. If you have a special recipe to share, feel free to include it as well — I’m sure Lynette will be especially thankful for that!
