Dinner with NiteMare's Tom Neill

The Chicago Yacht Club is proud to be hosting "An evening with Tom Neill" on April 18th, 2008 "Enjoy a great evening for a tribute to Tom Neill, an incomparable yachtsman and competitor. World famous sailor Gary Jobson will emcee this rollicking evening of reminiscence. If you have a story that fits the program, call Jim Armstrong at (847) 498-7721. Tom has graciously encouraged that this event be supported by friends and foes ( if any) to help him support the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation.Net proceeds from this event will benefit the Club Foundation so part of the $125 per person ticket price is tax deductible." Tom has been a fixture and wonder friend to all in Chicago sailboat racing for many years. A great article on Tom and Nitemare can be found at http://www.melges32.com/pdf/M32_TomNeill.pdf Perhaps we will see you there!
