2019 Letter from the President

 

                                                       S.C.O.P.E. 2019

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wanted to let everyone know what is happening  with S.C.O.P.E.  With heavy hearts, we are scaling back as an official club, after the expenses of the 2018 Poker Run & the lack of participation, we have decided to close the corporation. Sadly, offshore boating on the west coast is not what it used to be, lack of members, boats, sponsors and insurance cost, the club is too costly to continue.

2019 will be a new direction, just a social “Club” with boaters that want to get together & go boating, be it the ocean, Havasu, Mead, Powell, you name it. We will post a Calendar of events on www.scopeinfo.com and update Facebook posts at “S.C.O.P.E. info”. Our goal is to continue making memories and good times with great friends. We are branching out into the off-road area as well with trips to Glamis, Ocotillo Wells, Lake Havasu and the desert to name a few. We had over 15 members at Glamis on our last trip with buggies and S x S’s.

As far as weekend trips and overnighters, we will post information on slips and rooms, you will have to have proper boat insurance and on your own to book. I would like to thank all of the previous Board Members, sponsors, members and of course Ron Songrath for the vision of forming this club.

We all look forward to seeing you on the water or off-road.

Thanks, Pete Boyer

S.C.O.P.E. President
