SPRING COMMISSIONING

Last weekend the club had its annual spring commissioning service.  This ceremony marks the start of life at the club for the season but it’s also a solemn event of tradition.  The club dates to 1912 and the club house to 1916.  That’s a lot of years of friendly competition and good times.  Here’s what it looked like about 1916.  (And, no, I didn’t take this picture.)

At the ceremony here are twenty-three past commodores lined up.  That’s impressive.
