Plimsoll Day, Saturday March 10th @1pm

This Saturday at 1pm, let's gather and symbolize the passing of Winter and the arrival of Spring by burning your winter socks! 
We'll meet at CLSA and build a great bonfire. Then, to show that winter is gone and we no longer need the heavy, warm socks, we will throw a pair of our socks into the bonfire and welcome Spring.

Samuel Plimsoll (10 February 1824 – 3 June 1898) was an English politician and social reformer, now best remembered for having devised the Plimsoll line (a line on a ship's hull indicating the maximum safe draft, and therefore the minimum freeboard for the vessel in various operating conditions).

Although Plimsoll Day is traditionally celebrated on February 10th, we will celebrate during the warmer weather. To read more about Samuel Plimsoll, click here:

CLSA is participating in the Farmer City Christmas Parade again. This year's theme is "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Our entry will focus on the line:

While visions of SAILBOATS danced in their heads."

Please wear your best (and warmest) Christmas pajamas and bedtime attire (think curlers, sleeping cap, etc) and join us for this fun afternoon!

Meet at the Farmer City Fairgrounds at 1pm. Look for Bryan and Angie with their Thistle or ask at the parade HQ for our location. Anyone who RSVPs will be provided a custom made sailboat dream headpiece to wear so please RSVP as soon as you can!

Parade begins at 2pm and when we're done we'll meet at the American Legion for a chili supper, a local fundraiser.

Please RSVP by emailing clintonlakesailing@gmail.com or by visiting the CLSA Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/clsasailing/
