Blast From the Past

I used to write the newsletter for the Belews Creek Windsurfing Club. That club was made up of members in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area. It still exists today but is now called the Triad Windsurfing Club. Anyway, I still have copies of most of those newsletters. Its ironic that I've transitioned that writing to a blog site. I still feel like I'm sometimes writing a newsletter. Below is an old photo from March 2001 after a session at Belews Creek, and the exact caption that was under the photo on the newsletter's cover. From time to time this year, I may post some of that old material as there were some really good (and hilarious) trip reports that are still somewhat useful and valid today.

Above: Nothing Like Spring Sailin’! Several of the club members showed up at our site on Belews Creek to sail on a windy Saturday in March. From left to right: Jeff Clark, Rob Cornwell, Mac Barnhardt, Jeff Shanklin, Karol Wolicki, Don Wrenn, and Jan De Looze. More photos from Belews and the recent WindFest 2001 in Hatteras inside.

Hi Mac. I joined the Belews club a couple years ago. Don and I are still grabbing every session we can. Hope to sail with you at the OB sometime.

Is the Triad Windsurfing Club still active? I live in Winston-Salem, NC and sail a Force 5 sailboat (a small one man racing boat I am interested in joining to club to have a "beach" launching area for this boat. Is this possible? Who would I contact for information? (I also kayak)
