Pamlico Sail & Power Squadron members enjoy a variety of social gatherings. Members are encouraged to invite guests who may have an interest in joining the squadron.
General Membership Dinner Meetings are typically held every other month. The meetings begin with a casual half hour cocktail period, followed by dinner and a guest speaker along with squadron announcements. Our speakers cover a wide range of topics. Squadron meeting announcements can range from the reminders of the next Educational Course or Seminar to upcoming social or boating activities.
Past speakers have included Claiborne Young, noted cruising author; NOAA Corps relating to Hydrographic Survey Vessels; our Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper®; Maritime Law; NC Maritime Museum on Past & Modern Piracy; Salvage & Towing; NC Refuge Wildlife filming; Pacific Seacraft Yachts, The Lost Colony of 1587, Queen Ann Revenge Recovery and ECU program on Marine Archeology. A number of these topics are further enjoyed with a visit to the facilities. Also included are various local agency speakers such as Beaufort County Emergency Management and Washington Harbor District Alliance providing updates to community projects.
Education, Safety and Civic Service is very important to both the PSPS and USPS. Outstanding efforts are recognized and awards for achievement in these areas are presented to our members at General Membership Meetings.
Casual outings are planned just for the fun of it. We get together for pizza, visit a local oyster bar, holiday parties or dinner out when the agenda is merely to enjoy our squadron family. If you would like to be part of the planning or have an idea, call Kay Graham, Administrative Officer, at 252-946-7632.
Change of Watch Dinner Meeting is a more formal affair where our casual dress is stepped up a notch and our PSPS Officers are in uniform. This function is the installation of new officers and committee chairs for that year. Outstanding efforts are recognized and awards for achievement in various areas are presented to members for their contribution to our mission.
All events provide a great opportunity to get together with other boat lovers and enjoy a day or an evening of camaraderie. Attendance is not required by members, but, is surely appreciated!
