Detroit Boat Club Crew New Year's Day

Once again the rowing crew of the Detroit Boat Club conducted their Toast to the new year at the old Detroit Boat Club building on Belle Isle with over 200 attending. The annual event is a fundraiser to keep Rowing on the Detroit River. The building was opened in 1902 and heralded as the first fire proof structure in the United States.

The Rowing Crew rents the building from the city of Detroit and uses its facilities to store their racing sculls. In addition to the DBCRC nine area high schools,Grosse Pointe South, the University of Detroit High School, Regina Catholic High School, University Ligget High School, De La Salle Collegiate High School, Grosse Pointe North High School, Mercy High School, Detroit Country Day and Brother Rice High School.

The Event features some casual tours of the building, a brunch supplied by the members, hot dogs along with Charley's Ballpark Mustard and a champagne toast at 3:00 pm. In the photo are Peggy Jo and Coach Richard Bell who "guarded" the hot dogs. The photo of Peggy Jo in the newsletter header appears to display a cavas backdrop of the Detroit River but it is a genuine photo with the Belle Isle (McAurther) Bridge behind Peggy Jo.

Detroit Boat Club Crew (DBCC) is the oldest rowing club in North America. DBCC was founded in 1839, two years after Michigan was admitted to the Union of the United States of America.

The Friends of Detroit Rowing (FoDR) was organized in 1973 at the Detroit Boat Club as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the education of people about the sport of rowing in the Detroit metropolitan area and to sponsor elite rowing competition. Although that beginning led to a continuing friendship, the FoDR and the DBC are unique and separate organizations that share no legal connection. Club memberships are not shared and there are no financial or other organizational connections between FoDR and DBC.

As the story goes, the guy that owns this house lives north of Cincinnati, Ohio. Police were constantly being called for traffic jams and accidents in the neighborhood so they asked him to shut it down during certain hours. Instead he started charging by car load to pay off-duty police to be there. The guy is supposedly a real computer GEEK. You can see the video here

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!"

Sailing Pure and Simple
Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association

WED 2012-01-04
Sailing, Pure and Sometimes Simple is a selection of experiences that local sailors have enjoyed as they embrace this exciting and in some cases all-consuming sport. This first seminar of the 2012 series will feature four speakers:
- Barb Schmid and Charlie Todd were live-aboard cruisers on their 30-foot sailboat "Sayonara" in 17 countries over 11 years. You'll share the adventure of their first three years, from the whales of the St. Lawrence to the manatees in Florida; Maine, the Chesapeake, the Great Dismal Swamp, the Intra-Coastal Waterway; locks, tides and currents, peaceful anchorages and hurricanes.

- Stephen Hume, proprietor of Detroit Boat Works, and Susan McDonald, Archivist of the Crescent Sloop Class Association, are anxious to share their infatuation with this historic boat that was designed and built in Detroit and still has a spot in the Detroit racing community since its launching in 1953 as the first full-keel fiber glass boat in the world. The Crescent Sloop Class has competed in Detroit ever since and continues today with starts on Saturday and Tuesday race courses.

- Tim Metcalf, a USCG captain and Rear Commodore of The Doublehanded Sailing Association, asks: "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sail an extended distance with only two, or maybe even one, person on the boat? Why would you want to do that in the first place?" This session will explore the answers to these and similar questions, with an emphasis on encouraging the audience to get out there and do it!

- Lindsey Vickers, a home grown sailor races on MSU's Sailing Team. She will describe her experiences racing in dinghy competition around the country in both conference and intersectional regattas. MSU is in the Midwest Collegiate Sailing Association, comprised of thirty five colleges and universities.

As sailors, experience what it is all about! Please join us for this free seminar which will be hosted by the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, 788 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Shores, from 7:00 - 9:00 PM on January 4, 2012. The restaurant will be open ahead of time, accepting credit cards only. Beverage service will be available. The Spinnaker restaurant will also be available before hand for dinner and snacks. Credit cards only, please. The formal dress code will be waived. click here for seminar details

Business and Professional Event

MON 2012-01-09
If your business is in need of a mobile app or a mobile website, this is an event you don't want to miss. Learn how to identify the right mobile development firm to work with, how to present your idea to them and protect your interests, and what a developer will need to know to help you achieve your goal. Go thru the mobile development process from 'idea' to 'finished product'. Learn how the mobile development process really works from a panel of experienced mobile developers who will tell you exactly what they need to know in order to provide you with the mobile app or mobile website that meets your firm's needs.<br /><br /> If you've ever had a great idea for a mobile technology solution but been stopped in your tracks because you don't know how to find a person or company with the skills you need to execute it, or how to work with them effectively to put your idea across if you did find them, then this is the meeting that will help you move forward. As always, Mobile Monday Detroit attendance is FREE, but advance registration is required. Free parking is available (with ticket validation at sign-in) in Compuware's parking deck directly behind the headquarters building, and refreshments will be served.<br /><br /> Mobile Monday Detroit is sponsored by Mobile Monday Michigan, Compuware and the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan.
