Commodore's Notes:  Thanks for the Help   by Chester Hulme
     Here it is one week after the U. S. Cellular U. S. Open ( say that 50 times real fast!) and Iím wondering was it all worth it.  The answer in my mind is a resounding YES!!  From my view, I couldnít see how  it could have been a better experience, and that is what I as a club officer hope that everyone walks away from the event feeling .  While the wind could have been better (weíll work on that for next year), the participation of our volunteers was lifted to a new level this year.  I donít have room to list all of the people who pitched in and helped, but there are a few that I have to mention because every time I turned I saw them or in Karl Schulerís case never saw him because he was on the boats.  Don Gentry certainly needs to be recognized for all of his hard work., Dawn Allen makes a wonderful assistant at parties, Arlene Ward rolls some mean napkins and forks, Hal Hamilton is now our official bean cooker, all of you who helped serve and carve at the BBQ were great, and my wife Pam.  Thanks to the crew of Sea Scouts Ship One.  Surely we canít forget Mark Selif for providing the ďliveĒ music.  Wasnít that great! 
     I would like to give a special thanks to Elaine and Gary Motl.  Without them and the group at E.M. MARKETING there would be no event.  Thank them when you see them and let them know you will be there next year to volunteer your assistance.
     Now that our event schedule is down to its normal hectic pace, I hope to see each and every one at the upcoming events for the rest of the year.  Level of participation is going to be one of the criteria for scheduling events next year, so pack your favorite event. 
     On other club business, I will be contacting Greg Perkes in the near future to start the process of incorporating the club.  This is a priority!  We also need to contact a CPA to assist.  Does anyone know an interested CPA?  Also at the next club meeting I would like to form a subcommittee that deals with sailing access.  We need to identify needs such as new amenities at existing sites and possible new sites and make contact with appropriate people to get the ball rolling.  This will need club members to participate!!!!
See you on the water.     --   Chester

Mark Roundings.....í00 Whataburger IV
     Saturday morning arrived muggy and windless; by 10 AM it was not beyond 5 mph following dawnís Spot-a-Pot  tipping winds and intense thunder showers.  At Oleander you could clearly see the structures on the opposite shore and the water was only slightly rippled by the mostly missing NE wind. Thirteen registrants, on the 13th of the month- it was enough negativity to overcome the Whataburgerís prior good luck this year.  Breezes reached promising by the time of the Skippersí meeting but died throughout the first heat which was called off after most of the fleet had either given it up or had yet to finish an hour beyond the start.  A few unidentified sailors got caught far downwind as the start sequence began and in the dwindling winds  crossed the start line so late that they would have been declared Ďover earlyí for the second heat if one were held.  After Dave Cothran crossed the finish line (5th place)  race director, Skip Johnson, called it off with more than half of the fleet either still trying to get past the upwind mark or having already given up the hunt.  Craig Greenslit, Jon J. Ernst,  Guy Racette, and Guy Miller in that order were already on shore eating their lunch when the first heat was officially terminated.  Doc Allen showed up with his new wide Bassett board proclaiming his newly formulated disdain for long boards.... you might want to rethink that decision Doc.  With the wind now well below the minimum, the buoys were retrieved, the flags and Whataburger banners taken down, and everyone packed up hoping Whataburger V gets a better break from the wind.   Edís Note:  Whataburger IV has been rescheduled.

Coming our way.... but not too soon    by  Roy Tansill 
     Over a decade ago I got involved with a new computerized wind reporting service called ĎWind Hotlineí and subsequently got to meet Phil Atkinson its founder.  That newly begun service now covers numerous launch sites from Hatteras to Cape Cod and beyond.  Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Jim Martinís ĎCall of the Windí was informing wind hungry boardheads where they could find their wind fix from the Gorge down to San Francisco.  As reported in the most recent issue of  Windsurfing Magazine, these two wind reporting/prognosticating pioneers have combined their efforts and are in the process of building a nation wide wind service.  The new service is FREE!  A recent e-mail from Phil states that they will be covering Texas in about two years and I think we could speed up that process if the CCWA will lend Jim and Phil our support.  If youíve been muttering about the quality of wind reporting/prediction we have available to us presently and think one more source of misinformation isnít worthy of your assistance, consider this fact:  The US Military has contracted with iWindsurf.com because they were more dependable and accurate than the Fedís vast reporting system.  Sensor sites will be crucial, and that is one area where we can help. 
     Check out the new web site and then do a little daydreaming about how convenient it would be to know exactly what its blowing at every launch in our area plus a reliable prediction for what itíll be an hour from now when youíll be rigging- sounds like a far better process for more efficient usage of sick leave, comp time or whatever you use to get away from work and on a board doesnít it?  Currents will keep you informed of progress with this service and Iíll be seeking some help for Jim and Phil as well.

Editor's Puffs:   by Roy Tansill
     Due to time constraints, I decided to put off full coverage of the US Cellular US Open until next month when Iíll have had time to look over more photos and get ĎThe Officialí results.  Allowing for the value of words versus a picture (I think the accepted ratio is about 1,000 to 1) this one photo,  taken during the first race on Friday 05/26 pretty well sums up the results U.S. Cellular US Openof the Pro Men Fleet.  Thatís Kevin Pritchard leading Micha Buzainis and Phil McGain to the inside Mark.  Thatís the way they finished in both their class and, if you flip flop Phil and Michaís position, the Winduro as well. 
     Donít be alarmed if you see either Chester or Pam driving my old green Jeep Cherokee around town- its not mine anymore.  Bowing to peer pressure of all the LagunaTicks at Grassy Point, Chester purchased the Jeep so he wouldnít have to park his RV and his trailer (thereby consuming about 50% of the available parking space) when he sails at Grassy.  Donít tell Pam about this- she thinks Chester bought it for her.  I replaced the Jeep with a screaming red Chrysler PT Cruiser and  havenít stopped smiling since.  That diminutive mini-van is just large enough to carry a 283 wide style board inside along with The editor's new chariota 490 two piece mast and still get the back door closed.  Iíve been having so much fun driving the attention getting vehicle that I have been sailing only a few times since I got it.  That, plus the fact that itís trailer hitch is still on order,  have pretty much kept me off the water since the Open.   Mrs. Tansill has forbidden me from putting a roof rack on the gleaming new car (and sheís rather strict about sand inside of it too) so Iím beached until the trailer hitch arrives I guess.  This also means Iím going to have to keep my new full time job for another three years (at least) so I can pay for the new wheels; and that means Iíll really need your input and articles to fill up these pages each month. 

Good Deal on an Ideal PFD    by Sue Simmons 
(extracted from rec.windsurfing news group) 
     There is a coast guard approved type III PFD available as a small 'fanny pack'. It's designed to wear the pack around your waist with the pack in front, although it can be slipped around to your backside till needed.
     It has a CO2 inflation cartridge or you can blow it up by mouth.  Obviously, it is not intended for non-swimmers.  We just got some on sale for $40 each (usually much higher). Made by Stearns. You could attach it to the front of your boom like a boom bra if you detest wearing a PFD but are required to have one 'on board' by regulations in your area.  We got ours from Sailnet on sale for $39.95 part # BD 364.

Road Trip   by  CCWA member Don Cryer 
     After 2 months and one of the best windsurfing seasons ever (it was windy and sailable almost every day...), Renee and I left Corpus Christi in early May, heading for Arizona. 
    We went 300 miles out of our way to go to Big Bend National Park. The Park area with the Chisos Mountains was nice but nothing special for us (it is hard to impress Renee and I after all we have seen and traveled).  The Rio Grande was anything but and needs a name change to Rio Poco creek. However, 2 canyons (at the opposite ends of the park) and the humongous escarpment on the Mexican side of river were special. Both Santa Elena Canyon and Boquillas Canyon were formed by the river carving its way through the rising escarpment over the years forming very narrow and sheer canyon walls over a 1500', similar to Zion but more impressive! The short hikes up each canyon were inspiring! However, the drives to and in and from the Park through the Chihuahuan Desert (one of the four North American deserts..) were not, and more like driving through a vast waste land, and with temps over 100 and with the RV overheating; we were less than happy campers. We did take the back way out of Big Bend, following the river upstream to Presidio; this route along the river and through some canyons was in ways more interesting than the Park. All told, the sojourn was not worth it, especially this time of year with the heat. In January, the place may have more appeal, especially when compared to other continental US outdoor options. 
     On the other hand, our next side trip of 200 miles off course to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico was memorable. The vastness of the rooms and the many types, sizes and quantities of formations were magnificent. Even though we have been to many caves, Carlsbad now is near the top, if not the grandest cave we have been to. The evening exodus of thousands of Mexican Fruit bats (soon to be millions, when the rest of the migrating female colony arrives) from the cave entrance was a fitting end to a great day! [The number 1 industry in New Mexico for almost 25 years was the "mining" and export of bat guano fertilizer - 100,000 tons were mined out of Carlsbad!] 
     With head winds over 30, our trip to Benson was tortuously slow and hot and over more ugly wasteland, especially when we had to turn the A/C off to prevent overheating climbing hills. Towing a dingy stinks! 
     On 5/17, we went to Kartchner Caverns in Benson. This remarkable live limestone cave with a great variety of virgin pristine speleothems was discovered in 1974 by 2 young cavers and kept secret for 14 years until it was finally purchased and preserved by the State. It was just open to the public in late 1999. Only 2 rooms are currently open to the public, but each are fairly large (100 yards long) with one (the Throne Room) been well decorated with formations and a massive 58' column (Kubla Kahn). The cave has a vast array of Soda Straws, one over 21' [x 1/4"!!]  (the second longest in the world), though the longest one visible to the public is 12'. There were good representations from the very bizarre and gravity-defying helictites which still stump full scientific comprehension. The bacon ribbons were exceptional especially in their colorings. However, Kartchner is no Carlsbad in viewable area (probably 1/20th) or, size, number and variety of formations, though Kartchner is mostly alive (wet and growing) whereas Carlsbad is 95% dry/dead.  Kartchner setup and tours are really hokey and run like a overly strict amusement park with the narrative very, very lowbrow and juvenile (they use a tram to take each strictly controlled tour group a 100 yards from the exhibit building to the cave entrance!) They move you too fast through the cave so one can't spend anytime looking around and when they do stop, they babble meaningless trivial, mostly warnings, chiding and don'ts. If we walked at our own pace, the actual cave tour probably would have only been 10 minutes! (Carlsbad takes at least 2 hours to walk, not including the special 1 hour guided tours to limited access areas...) Finally, the price is absurd - $52 for 3. Maybe in a few years when more cave areas are open and they run the place like a natural wonder it is, one might reconsider. For now, Carlsbad has no competition.... 
     Next week we are off to northern Arizona and strict camping from here on out. We are contemplating possibly going up through California to the NW or following the Rockies straight North - even staying out here all summer. The absence of mosquitoes has such appeal! 
to be continued....

Mark your calendar for:  July 15th
   A major fun event:  Bird Island to the Causway Downwinder 
       All are Welcome.   Call Dick Ward at (361) 949-0232. 
    This is one event everyone can enjoy and no one should miss.  Open to all levels of sailors; but it's 12 miles and you'll probably need to be able to use a harness to cover that distance.  Dick is also looking for someone to volunteer the use of their boat for chase boat duty--if you can help in that regard, give him a call. 
    If there is one event you donít want to miss, this is it!

WORLDWINDS $OLD   by Vicki Duncan 
     Yep, it is true. I have entered into a contract to sell WorldWinds to one of my favorite customers, Randy Roper from San Antonio. Nope, things won't be the same; it will be better and it is only the beginning of a new era. Randy is bringing his enthusiasm and energy into the business and has lots of ideas which I think are very good. I hope all of you welcome him and give him the same kind of support I have enjoyed from you over the years. Randy is a super nice, personable, 31 year old family man. His wife's name is Samantha and they have a 3 year old daughter named Taylor. All their pictures will soon be up on the web-site and Randy will write you soon with news on the positive changes you will see.  I know one of these changes is to extend the operating season so go ahead and make those fall travel plans.  Yeah, it is all kind of strange to me. But I am happy as it is time for my life to make a change. I don't know yet what my plans are other than to take a few months of R&R while I think about it. I will remain with WorldWinds with Randy until July 1 to help him out with his new venture.  I will also be available to him (assuming he can find me) anytime he has those what?who?hows? Don't worry, I will stay in touch through WorldWinds. Maybe I will just drive around the country with the WorldWinds address list and knock on your doors.  Now, other than coming to meet Randy and seeing me off - here is another reason to come to Bird soon.  Randy wants to sell all the inventory and buy all new stuff!  That means THE END OF YEAR SALE WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE YEAR! This is your chance to get some great deals before Randy figures out what he should really be charging you. Ok, that is an exaggeration, I will be there and I know what to charge you. But I will give you some really good deals as a parting gift. 
     I love you all and wow, what memories I have to take with me. Once again, thank all of you for the support you gave me through the years.  WorldWinds was never really "me", it was always "you"; it is actually made up of the customers - keep up the good work.           See you on the water,  Vicki

Ed's Note:  Weíll be hearing from CCWA member and new Worldwinds owner Randy Roper next month if he can spare a few minutes for an interview .

CURRANTS... Letters to the Editor
Dear CCWA 
     Again our Spring visit was great.  Again- how many great folks we met at the beach and at the parties; great because they are Texans or windsurfers?  Pam And Chester are fabulous hosts and I now return home to an Angela prescribed diet to lose the weight I gained in Corpus. 
     Oliver at Cline Street and Amy from the Bluff Feed store sold us special products.  Amyís lineament (Bigeloil) eased this seniorís aches.  I returned a recommendation for her- Bag Balm, for windsurfers with cracked and worn hands.  She already handles it;  it's the best treatment for those problems. 
     Our friends urged us to sail the Bay (I have, and it is good but the launch is trashy).  We come for Bird Islandís flat water- we get our chops and waves on Maui.  Its hard to understand why windsurfing canít get a little more frontage at Bird Island.  It is so special;  it fills up too often.  Our crew from Caso Lake (Michigan) echo our sentiments. 
Ted & Angela Malpass 
PS  Back at home in Michigan the leaves are coming..... and the ice is going.
WHATABURGER  2000   THE SERIES
Whataburger #6- Oleander Pt., June 10...Be there and help out
Volunteers Wanted:  The club sponsored events, both races and fun events, need people to help out on and before the events.  This is particularly true for the US Open.  One year, the CCWA was a sponsor and had a booth at the Open; but we didn't have sufficient help to man the booth throughout the event.  We don't want that to happen again!  Similarly, other events suffered because of a lack of help.  How about volunteering your help this year?  Just phone an event coordinator and offer some help.
