Subject: FW: GBSPS--Billie Kearney IKE Information About Members


This is being sent from daughter Julia Kearney's email account because our web will not support multiple addressees.—Billie and Ray


Thursday the 18th of September


Just the Messenger, and all of our members have had a very busy week. IKE was a pretty tough guy.  My email list may not be up to date.  I brought my laptop with me to San Antoniobut forgot my memory stick, so my data may be a little off.  Anyway here goes….


The following is information that has been passed to me, it may or may not be completely accurate, but it is the best that we can do for now.


The D21 conference is scheduled for 3-4 Oct at the Hilton.  IKE took part of the facing off the building, windows were broken and the lobby had water.  Not sure if, where or when the conference will be held.


GalvestonBay's monthly meeting is on the calendar for 10 Oct.  IKE destroyed the facility that we were to use.  A replacement site has not been located yet.  That monthly meeting may be scrubbed.  Many ideas have been tossed around, just like our boats and houses…pardon the pun. 

If a place could be found should be set the meeting for the 11th and hold the Auction?
Forget about an October meeting?
Rent a place to store the auction items and hold the auction in May?

It is up to the eboard to make the final decision.


Our Building!!!  Roof is still there, not sure if it is completely intact.  We did have water; it appears to be in the East room and part of the Kitchen Bar area.  Rug is wet and some of the guys are trying to see about pulling the carpet.  Does not appear that any windows are broken.


Education classes are suspended until further notice because of repairs to the interior.


Lakewood Yacht had considerable dock damage and may have a gas line broken somewhere on the grounds.  They were not letting vehicles on the grounds, Tues.16th.  That may have been taken care of by now.  Betty Carr said that pictures were taken.
