End of the Summer Schedule
August 7, 2017

Pleon,

As the summer starts to wrap up, I wanted to check in to provide some information about the end of the summer schedule. Here is an overview of upcoming events.

 

Wednesday, August 9th

Sailor’s Ball

The Sailor’s ball is this Wednesday, from 7-9pm. It is a semi formal dance for Pleon members under the age of 12. It will be a fun night of dancing, games, contests and more. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate! Sailor’s should show up at 7 to take pictures in front of the clubhouse, the dancing will follow at 7:15. Snacks and drinks will be available. $5 admissions will be collected at the door. Please email me at commodore@pleon.org to let me know if your sailor is planning on attending.

Monday, August 14th

Commodore’s Ball

The Commodore’s Ball will be held Monday the 14th, aboard the Hannah Glover from 7-10pm. Please arrive to Pleon by 6:45 for pictures, and to ensure that we board on time. It is a semi formal dance. $10 admission per person will be collected. No guests or non Pleon members will be allowed on board. Snacks and drinks will be available.

Venture trophy

The Venture Trophy will be raced in the afternoon of Monday the 14th, from 1-4pm. It is a 420 regatta where two girls, one older and one younger, team up to race for Pleon's perpetual Venture Trophy. The Trophy has been raced for 80 years and is one of Pleon’s best kept traditions.

Man Trophy

While the girls compete for the Venture Trophy, the “men” of Pleon compete in their own regatta. The Man Trophy will also be held the afternoon of Monday the 14th. The Man Trophy is not Pleon’s most prestigious trophy, but still a favorite. Rules will be discussed day-of.

Tuesday, August 15th

Great Day

Great Day is Pleon’s equivalent to field day. A massive slip ‘n slide, cake fight and a bunch of other fun activities take place from 9-12 and 1-4. Sailors should show up during their usual class time, except for the cake competition and fight, which are open to all.

Wednesday, August 16th

America’s Cup

The America’s Cup is a match-race regatta (two boats against each other) sailed in Sonars, and will be held on the morning of the 16th.

Club Champs

Following the lead of our regular Wednesday Series races, Club Champs will be held the afternoon of the 16th. Fleets will be divided in the same way as in Wednesday Series, but the results will stand as their own regatta.  

Thursday, August 17th

Club Elections

Club Elections are a mandatory event, that will be held on the Grassy Knoll at 12pm on Thursday the 17th. It is during elections that sailors vote on their leadership positions for the following summer. This includes the Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, Executive Committee members, House and Entertainment Committee, Grounds Committee, Race Committee, and Flag Committee. It is required that all sailors show up to vote each year, and encouraged that sailors run for some sort of position during their time at Pleon.

Pleon Banquet

The end of the summer banquet will be held on Thursday the 17th at Marblehead High School from 7-9pm. This is when members will be acknowledged for their achievements throughout the summer, and all awards will be given out.

Friday, August 18th

Last Day

The last day of Pleon is August 18th. It will run normally.

 

Please reach out if you have any questions. 

Thank you,

Commodore Chloe
