The first Fleet 19 winter meeting of 2019 was held on January 9th at Ben’s Restaurant at 6:00 p.m. with 14 members in attendance.
There was discussion regarding the Flying Scot Districts, which will be held at BYC in 2019.  Tom Dawson, Sec/Treasurer advised that Dan Goldberg, a certified PRO from Moraine Sailing Club (MSC) would be running the races at Districts and would be looking for volunteers to assist with race committee duties. 
Fleet Captain Craig reminded the members in attendance that in order to race at Districts, individuals should be sure to renew their FSSA memberships to be eligible to participate in the event. Noting, FSSA renewal / membership is a great way to keep the value of our boats high and offers many other additional benefits and resources for Scot sailors. 
Additionally, Fleet dues were discussed and with no further questions or comments the Fleet approved to maintain the current rate of $25.00 for 2019. Checks can be made payable to Ron Craig or payment may be made in cash. 
There was a brief discussion regarding 2019 Fleet Point Rules, which resulted in retaining the current Fleet Point Rules as written.  For more information on the 2019 Point Rules click here.
The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m. with the next meeting date scheduled for February 6, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. (Ben's Restaurant)
