Commander's Messsage From Candyce Corcoran,
clear
On February 26, 2011, The Change of Watch for The Music City Power Squadron took place at the Black Pearl Restaurant in Nashville, TN.
 
I was sworn in by District 17/LT/C Margaret Sherrod, and I am humbly honored to take on the role as your Commander and look forward to an exciting and fun filled year with many new activities and friendships to be formed. Although this is a new position for me within MCPS, I have had the honor to be elected Commander, twice before. The new MCPS Bridge consists of both seasoned and relatively new members to the squadron. Your new Bridge will bring a wealth of knowledge to the table. We will encourage and continue to promote safe boating and to provide a practical means to foster fraternal and social relationships through new and exciting venues.
One of my many goals is to retain and increase membership. "Membership Blitzes" will be held at local marinas in the spring and we certainly can use everyone's help. In addition, we will promote instructional programs for the benefit of new and existing members. We can only succeed as a squadron with your participation, help and ideas. I believe in an open line of communication and my email address: Aquamoon3@aol.com, as well as my home telephone number is always accessible to you, the MCPS Member.
 
With warm weather quickly approaching and boaters scrambling to get their boats ready, it is time to think about:
• Enjoying friendship and camaraderie on and off of -the-water with fellow members.
• On-the-water activities which will include many Cruises and Rendezvous. Activities On shore may include: Marine Programs, Parties, Dinner-Dances, Picnics and Educational Programs.
• Signing up for additional educational courses.
• I will have a MCPS Membership "Booklet" made up for all so you can contact your fellow MCPS Members.
• A MCPS Newsletter will be available and we need everyone to participate. Send your boating recipe's, your boating photos, write a story, your new children, grandchildren and fur kids. We want to know about YOU!
 
Don't forget to check your emails and newsletters for all upcoming events. If you have not given us an updated email address, home address or phone number, please do so. We don't want you to miss out! You can also always check out our fabulous website for updated information.
Once again, thank you for your confidence in allowing me to serve as your Commander.

Music City Resets Its Watch
clear
On an early spring evening, Saturday 26 February, Music City Power Squadron visited the Black Pearl Restaurant at Blackjack Cove Marina. As winter-weary members arrived at the entrance canopy over the walkway to the dock, not a heavy winter coat on any shoulder, the near life-sized statue of a buccaneer held his hands out to greet us.
It was the first day at a new job for Josh the bartender, and he did a fine job exchanging drink tickets for beer and wine, bourbon and martinis, Dr. Pepper and Diet Coke. Ray Alley had set up the U.S. and USPS ensigns on their staffs behind the head table, where pennants for the Bridge officers hung over the tablecloths. After extensive socializing, the covers were removed from the buffet line serving dishes, and we heaped our plates with mixed greens and white beans, fried catfish and baked chicken, French fries, sweet potato fries and hush puppies.
Commander Robby Gilreath led us in pledging our allegiance to the flag, said a few words, and dismissed the old Bridge before taking his seat, now a Past Commander. Margaret Sherrod, the District 17 Education Officer, next raised our enthusiasm for a new year of classes and seminars, vessel safety checks, and the District Spring Conference here in Nashville at the end of March. She related her own experience joining the Atlanta Squadron, and challenged us to enjoy even more fun Squadron activities than last year. She also noted that Music City now boasted more Certified Inland Boaters than any other Squadron in the District (three to date, with a number of others nearing their requirements for certification). D/Lt/C Sherrod then installed the new Bridge - there were a few in their old, familiar seats, a few more swapping seats, and a couple of fresh faces at the head table now. Our new Commander, Candyce Corcoran, then gave her own address, raising our excitement to a near-fever pitch with her thoughts on the coming season, the future of the Squadron and the opportunities before us. Mike Majka presented Past Commander Gilreath with a gift from his Bridge, a beautiful log book, and Gilreath presented his gifts to his Bridge, cockpit blankets emblazoned with the Squadron logo.
For the record, your officers for 2011 are:
• Commander - Candyce Corcoran
• Administrative Officer - Ray Alley
• Squadron Education Officer - Elizabeth Stengacu-Nelson
• Treasurer - Mike Majka
• Secretary - Tom Hudson
• Information Technology Officer - Mac McBurney
• Flag Lieutenant - David Corcoran
• Members-at-Large - Terry Fitzpatrick and Drew Nord
 
After adjournment, Lili Hudson reminded Lori Gilreath that while Robby was now a P/C, his involvement with the club was not over by a long shot. Everyone agreed that the Black Pearl was a great venue, and that we should have future Squadron meetings there. As we departed, Josh said he looked forward to serving us again.
