2014 PRSA Annual General Meeting & Awards Banquet

The 2014 PRSA Annual General Meeting and Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday, November 15, 7-9 pm, in the party room at Marina Towers.  Dinner will cost $20 per person (pay at the door) and will feature beef roast, chicken, vegetable dishes, sides, and assorted beverages.  Additional details, including an AGM agenda, will be posted soon.  This is always a great chance to see everybody and reminisce about another year of great sailing, so I hope to see you there!  Please sign up here to let us know whether you will be attending.

Directions: From the Washington Sailing Marina, go south on GW parkway towards Alexandria. Stay to the right and take the Slaters Lane exit. (It is the first exit you come to). Turn left onto Slaters Lane from the ramp. This will take you across the parkway. Go through the intersection and past the first buildings and look for the high rise on the left. That is the building. It is only five minutes from the marina.  When you arrive, please go to the front desk, sign in and ask where the PRSA Party is. They will direct you to the party room.

PRSA AGM Highlights

We enjoyed a fantastic pasta dinner at the 2013 PRSA Annual General Meeting (thanks Michelle and Lee) as we handed out awards for the 2013 racing season and discussed several business items.  I’ve provided a summary of the award winners and key discussion points below.  Congratulations to the 2013 award winners and to our new slate of officers!
