born in Hawthorn, Ca. Lived in San Diego for 20 years and worked as an Aerospace Machin-
ist. Dan loved life and will be fondly remember by his many friends for his great sense of hu-
mor, love of music and his abundant generosity.

Danny is survived by his parents, Donald and Sandy of Glendora, CA., his true love of 20
years Tracy Mutz, his daughter Destiney and grandchildren Rees and Nolan, his siblings,
Patty, Robin, Ron, Kathy and Mark, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Dan was a long time member of the Club and held many offices and chairmanships. He will
be missed greatly by his friends and family. To be remembered in the hearts of our family
and friends is not to die.

PLEASE SHUT THE GATE DURING NON-BUSINESS HOURS! This has become a major problem, mem-
bers are not shutting the gate when they come in and leave. Cars come in trying to find a short cut to Pa-
cific Beach. Vandals have come in, people and kids are coming in, what are they looking to find? Lets try
to prevent even problems in the future.

Please dispose of Cigarettes butts in ashtrays. They are very difficult to pickup and toxic to our environment.

NOTICE to Fishermen please place your unwanted fish parts in a plastic bag before disposal of them in the
dumpster. The hot weather brings a strong unwanted smell.

                         LABOR DAY WEEKEND a Success!
“Hot August Nights” Labor Day was a fantastic weekend. Mike Smith cooked the perfect Steam
Boat Roast with all the trimmings. He continued to serve the leftovers throughout the weekend.
“Good eating!” The kids spent the day in the “ Pirate Bouncer.” The attendance was excellent. Pat
Hernandez invited ALL her relatives she has a lot! Chris Smith conducted a very successful oppor-
tunity drawing. Kudos to Chris and her volunteers.

Lyn Benavides was Chairperson for yet another successful “Saucer Party.” Gregg Curtis brought
two young gentlemen to serve the ladies dressed with Tuxedoes, board shorts and slip flops. They
would have been assets on any fashion runway until the jumped into Rose Creek Channel!
“               s
 Jammin”Johnny’ Karaoke followed all this.

       The 20th Disabled Water Ski National Championships concluded Aug. 30 in DuQuoin, Ill.

The Disabled Nationals featured the United States' top disabled water ski athletes competing for na-
tional titles in slalom, tricks, jumping and overall. Within each event, skiers who were totally blind (V1).
There were two rounds of competition and event winners were based on a two-round total, while the
overall winners were based on overall points from the best scores of either round.

Scott Leason started water skiing about 6 years ago with the SDMBB&SC blind ski program. Scott
says this has made such a big difference in his life, it keeps him fit, creates a motive in life and he
loves to water ski. Scott is in Division VI at Nationals and skied 2 rounds of slalom and 2 rounds of
tricks. Both rounds of slalom he skied 4 ½ buoys, line 31, @ 18.25 mph. His best trick round was 160
                                          Way to go Scott!

It is getting interesting... Scores are bunched at the top. If you drop the lowest score per skier, the
race is tight. There are five skiers within twenty points of the lead. October, November and especially
December should be exciting. The next competition is Saturday, October 4 with skiing to commence
at 7:30am. November will feature an afternoon affair, kicking off at high noon. And December will
showcase all local dry suits and a fight to the finish. See you there.

Those who slipped on to the island before the 7am bicycle race were treated to some fantastic first
round conditions. Those who missed the opening probably had a very long walk. We goofed with the
announcement regarding the race, but we managed to pull eleven skiers and had a great time doing

The top seven are as follows:

Many insurance companies will offer discounts on boat insurance to individuals who successfully complete this
course. Individuals who successfully complete the course and exam are awarded certificates and cards.
There is no prerequisite for the class but the book must be purchased and read prior to the class and the home-
work will be collected at the beginning of the each morning.

            The books are available at Seabreeze Books & Charts, 1254 Scott St. in Point Loma.
              The cost of the book is $25.00. The cost for materials will be $15.00 per person.

Classes will be taught at Mission Bay Boat & Ski Club, 2606 Mission Bay Drive. They will start at 8:30 AM
and end at approximately 4:30. This is a two-day class. This will be a very fast moving class and we are going
to be covering a lot of material in a short period of time but there will be plenty of interaction and hands on train-
ing. Additional advanced training is available in many of the subjects.

                       SUGGESTION BOX — By Corey Mitskevich
  I've moved forward and created a Suggestion Box for the Boat Club; Here’ how it works...
  1) The forms are available at the bar. We may need to relocate it but that’ where they are for peo-
  ple to see.
  2) The Suggestion Box is located under the activity board located at the left end of the bar.
  3) Members or Guests can complete a Suggestion Form and submit it in the box.
  4) The Suggestion Box is locked and I have the key.
  5) On a regular basis, I will check the box for submissions, take the suggestions and transpose
  them to a file.
  6) A Suggestion Box Committee will then review each suggestion and identify if it is applicable.
  7) I will also post a list of all suggestions.

I am selecting club representatives to be on the Suggestion Box Review Committee. The intent is to find two
more people that are not Board Members but representative of our membership. To date, the following people
have agreed to be on this committee:
      1) Corey Mitskevich
      2) David Jeffrey
      3) Tom Langton
      4) Diana Marshall

The intent of the Suggestion Box is to develop a system for people to submit comments and suggestions,
which, in turn, have a formal review. A Suggestion Box Committee will review each suggestion and
decide if it’ applicable and if resources are available to vote on implementation.

The SDMBB&SC 2008 Standing Rules are updated 2008. The Board of Directors will review October 14, 2008 and the
Flag Members will review October 21, 2008. Please analyze and provide input to the Board and Jess Espinoza.
Proposed Standing Rules: These rules have been updated to clearly reflect the clubs' mode of operation, member-
ship responsibilities and to capture key policies requested by the City of San Diego. Over 20 existing Standing Rules
from various recreational clubs throughout the United States were reviewed, debated and tailored for use. The commit-
tee was comprised of new and existing members with backgrounds from engineering, education, public accounting and
business who are committed in the advancement of the clubs' objective. We embodied and held true the clubs charter
of "providing water sports, relaxation, entertainment, and pleasure to its' members, to promote the City of San Diego as
a recreational center and to contribute to the support of such charitable institutions". Our hope is that you will find these
Standing Rules of quality level that meets the clubs' needs and standards.
