DSA Sailboat Auction - Saturday, April 28, 2018

Contributed by damon on Apr 16, 2018 - 10:26 AM
DSA will conduct an auction at Hernando Point on Arkabutla Lake on Saturday, April 28 at 11:00 AM.

This year we have four boats described in the attached PDF flier.  Please spread the word to anyone who may be interested in a sailboat.

Granted, these boats need a lot of TLC and work before they are seaworthy, but usually the price is right!  The minimum bid is $25.00 and a lot of them go for that.
This is the fifth year we've held an auction in the six years since DSA has had an "Abandoned Property Policy" that calls for the auction of abandoned boats and boats who's owners have not paid dues for three years.  The "Policy" has worked well to make the lot more attractive to new members and to put boats in the hands of active sailors.

If you have any questions, send me an email or give me a call.

DSA Secretary/Treasurer

Great DSA Banquet

Contributed by damon on Feb 28, 2014 - 09:38 AM

The DSA Annual Banquet was a big success with 45-50 members attending. Packing that many sailors into a small glass room ready for 25 was a bit of a problem for Jims Place Restaurant and noise was an issue discussed several times with junior management.

Sorry, but you get that many sailors together who haven't been able to tell sailing stories all winter and things might be expected to get a little rowdy. Since taking that many individual menu orders was beyond the abilities of the Jims Place staff and kitchen we were presented with a list of three items our group was allowed to order.

Each possible entry came with the same house salad with thousand island dressing already liberally applied. No "dressing on the side" for you people! You want the chicken, salmon, or steak?

If we are going to have that good of attendance every year it's probably time to move to something like a pizza place or sports bar that can handle the volume, both of noise and orders. Anyway it was great to see everyone and here's hoping for a great year of local sailing and consistant water level in the lake!
