“From the Wheelhouse”
By Commodore Gary Kirrkamm
I hope everyone is having a great summer and
enjoying as many boating days as possible.
Terrie and I thoroughly enjoyed the Clinton
River Boat Club Rendezvous at the St. Clair
Boat Harbor July 17-19. Members Keith and
Janice Winn and Dick and Carole Bania
hosted a wonderful weekend of events. It was great to see so many boats and
families participate. It is a big job to organize this type of event.
THANKS to all for your time and dedication.
Club Island hosted the Chris Craft Commander
Club on August 7-9. Member Heath Trerice
and his wife, Jennifer, organized and hosted the
event. There were 24 registered participants
(including CRBC members) with 18 guest boats
spending the weekend at the island. The
catered dinner was delicious and very well
presented. The evening entertainment was
enjoyed by all.
Throughout the weekend our guests commented on how beautiful and well-kept
Club Island is. I hope we have the opportunity to host their club again.
Visiting boat clubs are a great way to showcase the Island and generate new
members. We have received one application from the CCCC Rendezvous and other
Commander Club members are considering joining.
P/C Bill Whitley Sr. has donated and installed a new weather station at Club
Island, which reports weather conditions including temperature, wind speed and
direction, barometric pressure, dew point (the best measure of humidity), rainfall
amount, and solar radiation. There is a display for the weather station visible through
the glass door-wall of the Club Store.
Additionally, the weather station current conditions, along with historical data, can be
accessed via the internet through several avenues, Please see the home page of
the Web Site for further information. THANKS to P/C Bill Whitley Sr for installing and
maintaining this useful (and entertaining) system.

Once again, it is the time of the year to select Nominees for the Board of Directors. The Board of
Directors Nominating Committee consists of: P/C Fred Gutschow as the Chairman, Director
Ray Balick, Richard Eschebach, Scott Gutschow and Bob Michielutti. Thank you all for your
time and efforts to guide the future of our Club.
The Annual Stockholders’ Meeting is will be held at Stahl’s
Automotive Museum on FRIDAY, November 6th.
This is a very interesting facility with many original collectables, as
well as historical cars.
The meeting date was changed from the traditional Wednesday
evening to Friday so that Members would have extra time to enjoy
the museum after dinner and the evening presentation.
THANKS to CRBC Member Ted Stahl for letting us use this venue for the Annual Meeting.
There are many Entertainment events scheduled for the remainder of the season. Favorites such as
the Cardboard Boat Races, Labor Day Dinner, Fleet Review, Island Skits, Ducky Race and
Halloween Trick or Treat and Pot Luck Dinner are yet to be enjoyed!
Flyers are posted in the Club House and appear on the Web Site and in the SOUNDINGS.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Island,
Gary
Grounds and Maintenance
From the desk of Chris Nevison
Island Store News
The exterior clubhouse residing
project is complete. John Space is
patching and dry-walling the interior
apartment where the old windows
were located.
Several of the toilets were removed
and remounted in the clubhouse due
to broken flanges. New door seals for
the refrigerator were purchased.
Unfortunately, after 16 years of
service, the 50 horse Yamaha motor on the barge is
broken beyond repair and needs to be replaced. The cost
to attempt repair far exceeds its value and the repair
technician indicated it would not be money well spent.
So, options are being explored as to a suitable
replacement engine. A larger engine would be more
efficient and make steering easier.
In addition, the batteries to the handicap electric golf cart
need to be replaced.
Moss Electric has been out and will be making
additional trips out to the island to finish addressing
electrical fixes.
Lastly, an additional 200 lbs of grass seed was spread
where the stumps were ground out to fill in the bare spots.
Some items are now marked 20% off.
Come to the store and check them out.
There are t-shirts and shot glasses with the
CRBC 75th Anniversary Logo.
The “End of the Season” Sale begins on Labor
Day Weekend!
The store is open Sundays at 10:00AM or during
Special Events.
If you are not available at these times, please
contact Pam Grant, Jenny Cupler, Bev Sanborn,
Debbie Kersey or Roberta Reblin.

I can’t thank Bill and Donna Whitley enough. They jumped
into action after the Beltz’s boat got sick and they were
unable to host the Island Breakfast.
Bill and Donna pulled together a team in a short time
and provided an
outstanding breakfast. Pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon,
and English muffins were enjoyed by all.
And THANK YOU to all the unsung helpers behind the
scenes that help make all of these events a success. Your
assistance is greatly appreciated.
I look forward to enjoying the balance of the summer with
you all. See you at the Island.
THANK YOU to the Three Rob’s, Rob Grant, Rob Sogge
and P/C Rob Leonetti for another GREAT COOKOUT!
After being postponed because of an awful weather
weekend, Rob and Mary Kay Sogge hosted an Ice Cream
Social followed by Family Bingo Night hosted by
Butch Henderson.
THANKS to Keith and Janice Winn for hosting the St. Clair
Rendezvous and Golf Outing that was well attended
and enjoyed by all.
On Saturday, those that did not golf had the opportunity to
go shopping at Marcella’s. THANK YOU to Lynn Defever
who opened her home to a large group that did not golf,
providing drinks and refreshments.
The Euchre Card Game was hosted on Saturday evening
by Tony and Laurie Buccellato.
The Small Boat Rally had great participation and everyone
seemed to have fun even though team Eschenbach and
Kirrkamm smoked the competition.
THANKS again to Tony and Laurie Buccellato for hosting
another Euchre Tournament in the clubhouse. It was the
MOST attended with 42 people clearly having a
wonderful time.
Donna and P/C Bill Whitley Sr. extend their
appreciation for the great help they received in
preparing and serving (and cleaning up after) the
Island Breakfast on August 2nd.
A BIG THANKS to Richard Reid, Sue and Jon
Reesman,
Reesman Amy and Cliff Cohen,
Cohen Laurie and Tony
Buccellato,
Buccellato Terrie and Commodore Gary Kirrkamm,

and Annmarie and Gene Schaden.

Club Island is on the (Weather) Map!!
A new weather station has been
installed at Club Island— with a
little help from my friend, John
Space. It is located on the
rooftop above the caretaker’s
apartment.
It will report weather conditions
including temperature, wind
speed and direction, barometric
pressure, dew point (the best
measure of humidity), rainfall
amount and solar radiation.
There is a display for the
weather station visible through
the glass door wall of the Island
Store.
Additionally, the weather
station current conditions, along
with historical data, can be
accessed via the internet through several avenues:
On your smartphone or tablet, download the Weather
Underground app from the Apple App Store, or
Google Play Store. Point the app to the zip code
48028, or the weather station ID KMIHARSE2, and
the Club Island weather station data will appear.
On your laptop or desktop, the individual weather
station can be found at the following link:

Dear Club Island Members,
For all who attended the Chris Craft
Commanders Club Rendezvous weekend,
thank you for making our guests feel
welcome.
I am happy to report that the Rendezvous
showcased our Island as the incredible
destination that it is, plus the warmth and
friendliness of its membership.
A special thank you to Commodore Gary
Kirrkamm for preparing the “Welcome to
Club Island” gift bag and for his efforts in
shuttling the caterers and band back and
forth from Minnich’s.
It was a great sight to see so many vintage
Chris Crafts in our harbor representing
some of the earliest designs with a new
material in boating called “fiberglass”. The
revolutionary engineering and designs of
these vessels are the early building blocks
of today’s modern yachts.
Having such pieces of maritime yacht
history displayed in our harbor was a
profound experience for me and I certainly
hope you enjoyed it.
The success of the Rendezvous has already
led to new inquires and Membership applications. In addition, there will be an article in
the Antique Boat Owner Society’s National
publication bringing further exposure to the
Clinton River Boat Club and Club Island.
Thank you all again and enjoy the rest of the
season,
Heath Trerice
