    Oriental Boat In-Water Boat Show

    Volunteers need to help staff our tent and bring in new members!

    Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. The most recent show drew over 100 exhibitors from as far away as Hampton, Virginia; Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers will bring in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, and many informational seminars are offered.

    Memorial Day Cruise

    As in the past this will be assigned in the order of your registration. The Marina will try to make 10/12 slips available. As the club has grown so has the sizes of boats which makes it difficult to assign slips. The Marina will do the best they can to figure out this puzzle. Please read the info sheet below.

    Slips assigned by Marina in order of Registration and size of Vessel

    • The Marina will maintain a Wait List
    • The Anchorage Marina will begin calling the list in mid March
              (we’ll let you know when )
    • WHEN YOU ARE CONTACTED THEY WILL ASK FOR A CREDIT CARD FOR THE 1st NIGHTS STAY WHICH IS NON REFUNDABLE.
    • If you decide you cannot not commit they move to the next person on the slip
    • The Marina will try to make as many slips as possible available
    • DO NOT CALL THE MARINA THEY ARE WORKING FROM THE LIST WE PROVIDE
    • NSA MUST HAVE THIS LIST TO THE MARINA BEFORE MARCH 15th

    Dinghy Poker Run

    It’s not too early to start thinking about having fun and helping a good cause. 

    For those of you who are new to the Poker Run, here’s how it works: Hands sell for $10@ or$25/3 (including 1 lunch/hand!) at the Tiki Bar at 9:30am and the “run” is from 11am - 1pm.  Players take small boats to 6-7 docks where they draw a card at each dock to fill their hand(s), or you may do land only hands at the Tiki Bar.  Prizes will be awarded for the highest hands. Lunch will be served from 12:30 – whenever.  Live and Silent auctions and 50-50 raffle are held following lunch.

     This is a community event, open to everyone, but staffed primarily by the membership.

    Dinghy Poker Run – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

    We are also looking for your help before and on the day of the event.

    First, we need items to use for prizes for winning hands and items to use in the silent and live auctions. These can be actual items or gift certificates to specific places or for services or adventures. As you are doing your spring cleaning and have items you no longer need, consider donating those.

    All items & gift certificates must be turned in by Sunday July 23.

    We are in urgent need of volunteers to ask businesses and others with items or services to donate. We have a list of contacts who have donated in the past making this process easier. We also have a formal letter to use when asking folks for donations.

    Advertising – Help now to place flyers around town at businesses, marinas, etc

    Auction items organization – This will take place during the week leading up to the event. Help will be needed to prepare bid sheets, create posters and anything else needed to get the items ready.

    Set up – 0800 July 23. Organize tables for hand & raffle sales & food, place auction items, etc

    Poker hand & raffle ticket sales – starts at 0930. Since we have the option for land hands we will continue selling hands & raffle tickets until ~1315. We need volunteers to cover 0930 – 1130 & 1130 – 1315 time slots.

    Food service – Lunch will be prepared by Roadside Dogs, but help is needed to take up meal tickets, serve drinks, etc.

    Bake cookies – In an effort to keep down costs, we are asking for home baked cookies to use for dessert.

    Hand dealers – These are the folks at each dock who manage the drawing of cards when participants arrive. 2 people are needed for each dock. Land hand dealers also needed.

    Tally hands – Poker hands are collected the as folks come in after the run and when land hands are drawn. Hands need to be ranked to determine the winners. Familiarity with poker hand rankings is preferable.

    Silent auction oversight – Monitor activity at the silent auction, answer questions, etc. We have 2 shifts: 0930 - 1130 & 1130 - ~1315

    Oversight of prizes for winning hands – Help keep prize giving moving.

    Helpers for live auction – Show the item being auctioned. Help auctioneer keep up with bidders and record the winning bidders.

    Silent auction wrap-up – will need to pick up bid sheets when the silent auction closes & record the winners. Will also need to organize the winner cards for easier pick-up by the winners.

    Payment processors – Help with collection of payments for auction items. Familiarity with using Square for credit card transactions will be helpful.

    Clean up – self explanatory! We hope to be finished by 1530

    Contact me to volunteer for any of these positions or any questions you may have. You can also volunteer for “put me where you need me” if you want to help but are flexible as to task.

    More detailed instructions will be provided for each task. Call or text: 919-414-7719 or email: srstephenson1420@gmail.com

    .Contact Karen Kleiner to volunteer to help with collecting auction items or to donate items – 252-659-1920 or kpkleiner@gmail.com

    .We look forward to hearing from you.
