Meetings & Minutes
Are you aware of the many changes that have taken place in anti-fouling
bottom paints for pleasure boats?
The April 8 membership meeting speaker will be Brian Kieb from Pettit Paint Company (pettit.com), whose theme will be Environmentally Friendly Bottom Paints along with Repair Epoxies. Brian has
been employed by Pettit for 24 years, spending the first four inside before moving
to their labs for one year in R&D. During the ensuing years Brian has traveled
through the Mid-Atlantic states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia,
and Tennessee promoting the Pettit line and handling customer relations and
technical support. He regularly does field testing for new products.
Brian usually brings some goodies for those in attendance, so don't
miss a great presentation from an expert in his field and a chance to
take home a gift from Pettit.

Details of these upcoming events are usually available in the
NVSPS newsletter. Click on Newsletter, in the menu to the left, to see the current and past issues.
A tour of the US Coast Guard's Navigation Center (NAVCEN) in Alexandria is planned for 18 April, 2015. Click here to see details and to register. After the tour, we'll all have lunch at a local restaurant. This should be a fun time! If you have questions about the tour, call Gale Alls or Dick Durgin.
Squadron members enjoy seasonal outings, such as the winter holiday party and the spring fling picnic.
These events are great fun and build comradery among members.
As social events are scheduled, links to the details will appear in this section.
