Knotmeter - December 4, 2014


Happy Holidays to everyone!

It was great to attend last week’s AGM and have the opportunity to meet some of you afterwards. I also look forward meeting the rest of the Membership by sharing a story either in front of our newly  renovated bar or outside on our popular patio! It is an exciting time to be involved with the Club and I am looking forward to working alongside the Board and staff at KYC. We have many new ideas planned for this upcoming season and will introduce these concepts and events  as the new season approaches.

Greg McNab, General Manager
