Blessing of the Fleet is being postponed indefinitely.
Due to the flooding currently going on it has become necessary to postpone the Blessing of the Fleet. Once the level on the Grafton gauge drops below 21 feet we will need at least a week to allow for cleanup of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rivers site, local roads and businesses.
Currently Palisades Yacht Club is closed and Longshot Saloon / My River Home is using the rear entrance off of LeClaire Street, the LaRosa Cabana Bar is closed. Current projections show about 22.7 on July 19th, the original date. Check the Blessing website at www.blessingofthefleetstl.com and www.riverbills.com for updates. Here is a link to the Mississippi River at Grafton gauge for reference.

Blessing of the fleet update

Just a heads up for anyone wanting to participate in the Blessing of the Fleet.
The 57th Annual Blessing of the Fleet scheduled for Saturday July 19th may be at risk of being postponed. River level projections now call for Grafton to go to 25.9 feet about July 11th before falling slowly. Critical levels at Portage des Sioux are in the 21 to 21.5 foot range. I will be posting updates both on the Blessing website at www.blessingofthefleetstl.com and facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BlessingoftheFleetSTL
If you want a simple page to bookmark to keep an eye on the levels I have one at http://www.riverwebcams.com/river.html that shows current radar, weather and river gauge graphs.

Important message from your Immediate Past Commodore, Alan D.

CTYC Members and friends.........
Re: Past Commodores Party / May 11th, 2013.

Sorry to say!
Past Commodores Party is postponed........

As of this morning (May 5th, 2013) the amended river levels are going back up 3 feet in the next 3 or 4 days. Puts it above the key pad at the front gate of DCYC. Also the long term forecast shows next Saturday to be rainy and a high of 59 degrees.

I drove around Polestar, Lake Center and YCSL this morning.
Not good anywhere. Polestar Fuel Dock side was almost a possibility.
Parking at Polestar difficult with all the boats and extra trailers etc. there.

For the best interest of CTYC, our members and friends......
The May 11th, Past Commodores Party is postponed.

Lets plan on sometime in the Fall..........

All checks will be mailed back to the issuer.
Electronic payments will be as you

Fleet Captain Bill Tullock's final party of the year was a great time. The festivities began in the Hospitality Room about 3 PM with the "D Dock DJs" providing the tunes to go with the appetizers and beverages. About 6 ish everyone put on their party duds and headed to the banquet room where they enjoyed a fine dinner while the "Daves Not Here" band set up.

Many Thanks to all that helped make this another great time.
