Kudos, Thanks and WOW...$8,000!!

Bart's Bash!!...50+ boats, 200 people all having fun, and $8,000 raised for the local Youth Club Sailing.
The Anacortes community and the volunteer cadre of the AYC does it again!   And of course, thank you sun and wind gods!!  So many people to thank but special recognition is due to the donors, ADRIFT, THE BROWN, GERE-A DELI, ANACORTES BREWERY, PENGUIN COFFEE, CORE BUILDERS and ORACLE!  And as to volunteers from the club...where to start, or finish, but certainly special thanks to Dave and Terri Bawden and Walt Meagher and their crews cooking, Town Crier Richard Riddell, auctioneer Pat Barrett, auction and raffle organizer Jan Chapman, Carol Herbert and Bob Bell behind the bar, Elise and Austin Murphy tabulating and reporting, and so many more, registering, the dish washers, the cleanuppers, etc, etc.   THANK YOU....THANK YOU!    Now let's go get those high school sailors a coach and some dinghy upgrades!
