THE COMMODORE'S CHALLENGE
For 40 years SBC has been supporting the Unlimited Hydros. Now it's time to groom the next generation for the sport.
I Challenge you, the members to raise funds for a scholarship to build a APBA Junior Class Hydroplane. The cost is around $900.00. The recipient, daughter, son, grandchild, nephew, niece or neighbor of the scholarship will be bebween 9 and 14 years old and will be selected by a committee based on their grades, atttude and social abilities. There will be a thermometer showing our progress through the year and if we raise more than our goal we may fund more than one.
We have one year to make this happen.
Why is going to be the biggest question we are going to hear. The building of a boat takes many skills. Math and science are the obvious ones but it goes much further than that. Social skills are developed, public speaking, trust, discipline are just some of the benefits of our sport. Wood working, painting, mechanical, engineering are some of the skills gained. This gives the youth something they can't get from a computer or X-box. Take a look at the playgrounds of today. Count the number of cell phones the kids are on. Let's give them something else to do. Building and racing a boat has them working with a mentor, parent, older brother/sister and gives them a true feeling of accomplishment. They will learn to succeed as well as have some failure. But they will learn and we will benefit
So there it is. A challenge. Send any donation to Commodore Myers or to David Dodge. Mark it as Hydro Fund. I would love to see in a couple of years a J-class heat race with our Seafair Boat Club burgee proudly displayed on every hull. Hey a Commodore can dream!
