Are you a member of a powerboating club? Each month PropTalk publishes club updates submitted from Bay-based powerboat clubs. Topics include cruises, educational events, changes in flag officers, and more. It’s inspiring to read about boating adventures near and far and learn the ways in which club membership encourages boaters to expand their horizons. Oh, and by the way, there’s no charge! We simply want to raise awareness of the many powerboating micro-communities on the Chesapeake Bay!

Three reasons your club should be in these pages: 1) grow your club membership; 2) increase your club’s visibility among the Chesapeake boating community; 3) your club members will love seeing pictures of their boats, excursions, and friends in the pages and pixels of PropTalk!

What does it take to get into the pages of PropTalk’s Club Notes section? It’s simple. Ask one or more club members to send a paragraph or two monthly (or just several times a year), along with a photo of your fun or educational events. We’ll keep the communication going from our end with a monthly reminder that often includes a link to a PropTalk web post that your club members will find informative.  

As we start 2024, we know many clubs will celebrate the season with a change of watch ceremony or annual meeting. This might be a good time for club leadership to consider who will be your club’s point of contact with PropTalk. Questions? Email [email protected].
