While we're not exactly sending out an SOS in this section, there are lots of ways the Yankee Chapter could use the help of its members. "Well gosh, how can I help" you ask. Some ways are pretty easy and some a bit more involved so read below to learn more. Maybe one of the ideas will get your imagination reved up.
General web content
Got a neat photo, cartoon, outboard story, or something else you'd like to share with club members? Well, don't be shy...send it in! See the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.
To these fine folks, thank you for all the years of hosting meets.
do we have any members willing to pick up the torch and create new meets
to help fill our schedule? If you have some ideas or would like to put
together a meet, contact the chapter President through the webmaster
on this site at the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this
This Very Site
This site was put together with input from club members, but it's still very much a work-in-progress. We'd like to hear from members about other features they would like to see on the site, and any comments about the site.
You can also volunteer to be a correspondent/photographer for a meet and see your work posted online!
The site was designed to add to the Yankee Chapter, not compete with the National AOMCI site which does a fine job. We do not plan to add a message board, or webvertize feature.
Please send comments and ideas to the webmaster.
Feeding the Piggy Bank
all like to hang onto our hard earned dollars just in case we happen
across that Waterman outboard at a tag sale, but as with most things,
running the club does take money. It doesn't take a ton of money, but
it is important to replenish the till from time to time. With that in
mind, we'd just like to remind our members that by joining the national
AOMCI, you are a Yankee member with no dues. However, we would like
to encourage all our members to do a few small things to help keep the
club in healthy financial shape.
2 - When a meet holds a 50/50 raffle, please pitch in and participate. You may win a couple of bucks and it helps out the club.
3 - When attending a meet at someone's house, please pitch in $5.00 for the host per club tradition. We've all been known to enjoy some wonderful home cookin' at meets, and feeding a big group can be a costly affair. Also, as a practical matter, be sure to sign in. It makes it that much easier for your host to plan for the following year if they know how many people to expect. You wouldn't want them to run out of food, would you? ;-)
4 - Try and come up with some interesting fundraising ideas for the chapter.
