DIYRA Meeting - Noon-3PM, Saturday, January 24th @ PYC

posted Dec 27, 2014, 11:07 AM by DIYRA Administrator   [ updated Dec 27, 2014, 11:30 AM ]

DIYRA Members:

Due to a scheduling conflict with Privateer Yacht Club (PYC) we have moved the date for the 2015 DIYRA Meeting to Saturday, January 24, 2014 from Noon to 3pm.  

DIYRA Commodore, Paul Latour, suggests you "bring your race calendars for DIYRA consolidation planning if you want to meld with other clubs."  Also on the agenda will be discussion of the DIYRA Championships.

If your Club is going to be represented at the meeting could you simply "reply back" to let us know?  It will be helpful to have an idea of the number of attendees.

Privateer Yacht Club (PYC) is located at:  
4713 Privateer Road, Hixson, Tennessee  37343
(423) 877-9411

Directions to PYC from 1-75 in the Chattanooga area:  

  • Exit off of I-75 to US-153 North (Cross over Chickamauga Dam)
  • Take Lake Resort Dr and Gann Store Rd to Privateer Rd
