Quarterly Dues
Last week I published a list of members who showed a balance more than 90 days past due. I stated that I hoped some of them were due to bookkeeping errors or misunderstandings. This was indeed the fact in several cases. What I didn't realize was that most of them were due to members not actually knowing they had an outstanding balance. One of the things that stopped happening when we went to the online version of Quick-books was sending statements every two weeks to remind everyone who has an outstanding balance of their past due obligation. While the billing is automatic for the most part, the statements must be manually generated. John Robertson will begin issuing statements every two weeks that will show all outstanding obligations. 

I apologize to all of you who were caught off guard because you either didn't actually owe the money, or simply thought you were up to date and had not been told otherwise. When I publish the "ninety-day naughty" list next quarter I will be sure that statements have been sent out a couple of days prior. 

Everyone should have received an invoice for your dues from April 1st to July 1st. This invoice is now past due.  We currently have 73 members that are not current with their dues. If you have questions or concerns please contact Treasurer John Robertson at jdrobertson54@comcast.net. 
 
 
Insurance and Registration
All of those members who have a boat in a slip except one have turned in both their insurance and registration We still have a couple of members with a boat on a mooring ball who have not yet submitted their proof. Those members will be receiving a letter early next week giving them 30 days to remove their boat from the water. They are no longer in good standing.
