I promise to follow up on GA stuff in another thread. Still in the EU and internet has been spotty, but I think I have decent access for the next couple of days from Varona.

Short answer is that, yes, current members can "convert" their regular membership to show up under the Multihill Council Golden Anchor (MHC GA). Doesn't do much other than help us figure out how many members are sailing multihulls.

However! New and renewing members save money on their membership, get all the same benefits, and we get credits through the USSA store for merchandise - I'm waiting to see how much we earned this year, and we'll figure out how best to spend it. I expect around $100-150 or so. I'm proposing to the MHC that we either use it to subsidize the Area Reps' purchase of medals for the Qualifiers, or we can set up a new annual award for leadership in a regional fleet or something.

The MHC GA has two anniversary dates - March and September. If you're about to expire and want to get the most bang-for-the-buck, you can wait until after January 1st to renew, which will get you through March 2010. After that, you're back to a 12-month schedule.

Hope that gets to the initial questions - there is a new GA promotion out that I will be posting links to in the next few days.

More later... Ciao!

Varona? Verona - Italy? Dont flirt with girls there if their brothers have knife scars wink And dont drink the grappa.. Or DO drink the grappa!!

If you have time to give us the executive brief in itemized form from the ISAF meeting.. It would be very interesting.

Yep - Verona Italy... the Grappa bites. We are on our wedding anniversary trip. Leah has a conference here so I am playing tourist.

There is a full ISAF debrief coming - I also am pleased to have met Claus, who frequents Catsailor.

One thing I was reminded to make clear - The Commission's recommendations are made to the Executive, not the Council. We hope to see our recommendations carried through to the actual voting on issues, but there are no guarantees at this foot-in-the-door stage of things. I hope I did not give the impression that the recommendations we made are ISAF policy. There is more yet to do, and the voting continues this week.

Pleased to meet you too John. It was a nice opportunity to get some multihullers together, and things are moving which is good. Hopefully MHC recommendations will be taken into account by the Executive...

John,
After 20+ years with USYRU & USSA it's great to see that we still have a multihull council and represent us at ISAF. It now seems all worthwhile. You are doing a great job for us and it's really appreciated. Keep up the good work and good luck.
