Buccaneer Gift Exchange – December Meeting

The proceedings of the AYC Annual Christmas Party – A.K.A Buccaneer Gift Exchange (no relation to the fleet, although…) were full of cheer and merriment.  Here is a little bit of what went on…

The Overall Winner of the Governor’s Cup for 2010 was awarded to Gene Muller for best overall corrected time.  Norm Anderson (PHRF Spin) and Trey Harlow (Portsmouth) were on hand to collect their individual fleet trophies.

Mike and Jo Grijalva were on hand to deliver a Burgee from ????  Mike was also the winner (AGAIN) of the Newport to Ensenada race.

The Blunder Bucket was (finally) awarded to Emory Heisler for getting his back window taken out by the mast of his Bucc, Erin Morgan, when his trailer popped off the hitch (because hd didn’t close the latch!) on his way to the fiberglass repair shop (which is an entirely different Blunder Bucket nomination).  And while there were may other nominations, including Bob Worral for his “gift” at the exchange, Emory’s tale of gross bafoonary was by far the favorite of the group.




As always, the Buccaneer Gift Exchange was great fun for all!  Lots of Bootie – some great, some, well…not so great (Trailer tire? Really Bob?)

Sept Membership Meeting

At the September Membership Meeting we had Joe “Okie” O’Conner and George Sheller give us an update on the status of the Tempe Town Lake dam repairs and future plans for City of Tempe “mixed use” facilities at the lake.

We had some new faces interested in membership.  Gilbert Kanitario who crewed for Ray Gazzera on Opening Day at Lake Pleasant signed up that night!

There were a few burgees exchanged and good fun was had by all!
