Picnic and sailing fun scheduled for Aug. 28

Members and friends of Sewell Mountain Sailing Association are invited to attend a Fun Sail Day and potluck picnic beginning at 9 a.m. Aug. 28 at the Battle Run picnic shelter, Summersville Lake.

SMSA will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, buns and paper plates. Attendees are asked to RSVP by Aug. 20 and contribute a covered dish, salad or dessert. You can reach Sandy Richards at 304-438-5035 to let her know you're coming, and what you're bringing.

If you'd like to join in a "white elephant" raffle just for fun, bring your contribution to Sandy Richards when you arrive on Aug. 28.

Some new members without boats, and some other interested newcomers, may arrive hoping to hitch a ride on a sailboat. Skippers willing to take on such ballast will be rewarded with extra good karma for helping us to introduce others to the pleasures of sailing.

We hope to see you (and sail with you) there!
