Some Sad News in the Flying Scot Community

I am sad to inform the Flying Scot community that William Claypool, father of Nancy and Carol Claypool, passed away on February 19, 2014, at age 93.  He was instrumental in the early days of our Association in getting us started and helping to make us what we are today.  He is also a Past President of FSSA, serving from 1965-1966.  We do not have all arrangements or information yet. but the family is asking for donations to the Flying Scot Foundation in his name.  If you care to donate, please send a check, noting it is in William's memory, to: Flying Scot Foundation, One Windsor Cove, Suite 305, Columbia, SC, 29223.

Message from your outgoing President Diane Kampf

Greg and Diane kampf

Dear fellow sailors,

As my term as Flying Scot Sailing Association President comes to a close, I cannot adequately explain what a privilege it has been to serve in this role.  Yes, there have been some long hours and, yes, it was worth every minute.  I have loved hearing from each of you who reached out to me with an issue, an idea, a complaint, or a compliment.  I have addressed every one of them in some way and, although you may not always have gotten the result you hoped for, you can rest assured that each item was addressed.

There are many people to thank, but let me start with you.  Each and every member of FSSA keeps our organization strong, keeps the boat value at its highest level possible, and keeps the camaraderie at its best.  So thanks to all of you who continue to be a part of this wonderful group of people who have become like family to me.
