SailBoat1013Texas Mariners Crusing Association is a nonprofit social club in the Clear Lake area of Houston, TX.   Our members have power boats, sailboats, or are "in between" boats.   Our activities include cruises of all types:  one day, weekend, or extended cruises.  They can be geared for power, sail, or both.  We also have small boat excursions or dinghy regattas.  And certainly no boating organization would be complete without social activities!   

These range from dock parties, themed parties or parties in conjunction with our cruises. We also offer great educational opportunities where you can sharpen your boating skills.  If you have a boat ~ or are thinking about a boat, if you're a novice boater ~ or experienced boater, TMCA is for you!  Come join us!

Fall is finally here!  Temperatures are dropping (just a bit), the humidity is lower, and the sun retires earlier each day.  Autumn is a time of change when the earth reflects back on the past year and prepares for the year to come.   For its grand finale, green leaves turn to colors of the warm summer sun and the multitude of hues in the flowers of spring.  Then, fall to make room for next year’s leaves. 

 As the days grow shorter, we, too, can take time to enjoy the memories of the year and begin preparations for the next.  As for me, I have had one of the best years serving as your Commodore, and I look forward to the few months ahead packed with great activities and our incredible finale--the Commodore’s Ball in December.   Then, we will make room for next year’s officers.

This is your club, and just as you get to choose our activities, you can choose our next officers as well.  If you are interested in serving as our Secretary, Treasurer, Cruise Captain, Rear Commodore, Vice Commodore, or Commodore, please be sure to show up at our next meeting on Thursday, October 20, at 6:00 pm (not Friday, October 21!) at the Elks Lodge in Kemah to nominate your candidate or yourself for a position.  Our Nominations Committee will also have a slate of candidates to recommend.  Voting will take place at our Annual Meeting on November 18.

Because of the steady increase in the size of our club, committees are becoming more of a necessity than a convenience.  If you are interested in serving on a committee, we will have information for you at our next meetings and throughout the remainder of the year.  Among the most active are the Social Committee, Ambassador’s Committee, Cruise Captain’s Committee, Secretary’s Committee, and the Information Technology Committee.  Remember, many hands make light work. 

Until next time, throw off those bowlines…catch the trade winds…. Explore! Dream! Discover!
