ELECTION RESULTS & MONDAY NIGHT EVENT!
ELECTION HELD, Bridge includes Bennett. Curran, Erickson & Bodtke
With tight balloting and one tie, the Members of our Bellingham Yacht Club selected new officers for the year 2010-2011. Michele Hurst Bennet was elected to be our next Commodore; Troy Curran was chosen as Vice Commodore; Jody Erickson moves to Rear Commodore, and Michele Bodtke was chosen as Fleet Captain. Three positions were contested, with Jody opposed by Gary Baker and Michele Bodtke by Mick Corcoran. In the Vice Commodore Race, John Gargett ran against Troy, and they tied! John graciously conceded the election to Troy, who was the incumbent Rear Commodore so he could move up.
Trustees are Joe Bartlett, Don Jorgenson, Sally Poorman & Michael Poulos
It was a tight race, and Commodore Pete Foti (who will become Past Commodore, unopposed!) thanked all the candidates who ran for office, including the four other Trustee nominees, Tom Aston, Pam Heward, Arne Ahlen and Geoff Chamness.
And thanks to all of you who voted!
