Milwaukee Boat Club
The more time I spend blogging the more I find myself noticing things that I most likely overlooked in the past. For example, while dropped Trevor off at West Marine today I noticed a flyer for the Milwaukee Boat Club. When I got home I did a little research and this is what I found out. First, the club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007. It was founded in June 1957 as the Outboard Runabout Fleet of Milwaukee by 13 families to “promote the safe and proper handling of small boats; to provide for the exchange of information on outboard boating equipment and operation; and to promote good fellowship and helpfulness in the sport of outboard boating”. It changed its name to the Milwaukee Boat Club in 1972. The Commodore for 2008 is Pete Merryfield. If you are interested in more information or joining the club their web site is http://milwaukeeboatclub.com/
