    President’s Corner August 2017

    Much thanks to Ed Shaughnessy (General Manager Belleair CCand Board Member/Secretary of TB SKAL) and his golf and banquet staff for another excellent golf outing and lunch on Mon. 7/24/17. Congrats to our golf winners:

     Low SKAL Member – Bob Marcus!

     Low Guest – Mark Stroud!

    The club sent out an email on 7/25 requesting gift certificates for use during our monthly meetings/raffles and as most summers seem to go, the response has been very light. If you have an item rather than a certificate, please feel free to let me know (gbentley@twresort.com) and myself or the nearest board member will arrange pickup. Early reminder….never too early to put away some wine donations for our December wine pull. Same offer applies if a pickup is needed or you can bring to any meeting during the next 3 months. Certificates can be mailed to:

    Mail all certificates or gifts to Steven at:

    SKAL Tampa Bay

    c/o 14280 Passage Way

    Seminole, FL 33776

    Thanks for your understanding and your generosity!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at Busch Gardens and Howl O’ Scream on Fri. 9/22!

    Best Skal regards!

    President’s Corner June 2017

    Much thanks to Julie Cortina and the staff of The Bay Club at Westshore Yacht Club for an excellent evening for our June meeting last week that included lamb chops upon arrival, Moscow Mules and a great selection of wines hosted by San Rafael Import Company and Wine Stream.

    Congrats to our raffle winners:

    50/50 - $135.00 went to Dina Lomagno and Steven Rodriguez

    Vesta Gift Package – Spa or Dinner – Doug Horn

    Vesta Gift Package – Spa or Dinner – Jim Wray

    Dolphin Landings Sail or Dolphin Watch for Two – Theresa Wood – Lecain

    I would like to take a moment to thank John Heather for his partnership with our club. Together with Dan Peretz, that partnership helped our Young SKAL membership goals become a reality. John was the Visiting Instructor of International Tourism & Hospitality Management at St. Leo University. As the title suggests, John was “visiting” and has returned to the Washington DC area. John will be missed by our club and I am sure many current St. Leo students but will remain active with the DC area SKAL Club. We wish John all the best and look forward to hopefully running into him at future SKAL USA events.

    As a reminder, get your foursomes together and register for the July 24th Don Smith Annual Golf Tournament at Belleair Golf and Country Club. The golf starts at 9am and the luncheon starts at 1pm for golfers and non-golfers who are welcome to enjoy the amenities of this prestigious club. I look forward to defending my 2016 Club Member crown….that in itself shows you how fun and fair the Calloway scoring can be!

    Best SKAL regards!

    George Bentley

    President’s Corner May 2017

    May’s meeting at Bon Appetit in Dunedin was “mission accomplished”, as $2,215 was raised towards the registration cost of our (3) Young SKAL members who are now ready for their trip to Toronto for NASC. Thank you to everyone who assisted on this evening as well as those not present who have assisted with the effort for many months.

    Our next meeting will be hosted at the The Bay Club at Westshore Yacht Club on Mon. 6/12/2017, registration is open for that event and The Annual Don Smith Golf Tournament at Belleair CC on Mon. 7/24/2017. Again, a reminder to extend invitations to guests who you believe would be interested and qualify for SKAL membership as well as family and friends who would enjoy the many varied venues that VP Colette Florido has put together for 2017. If you have any clarifying questions on who would qualify for complimentary guests (potential members), please reach out to Membership Director Roberta Blum.

    That is it for May…..trying to keep it light! Enjoy the upcoming holiday and the early onset of summer!

    Best Skal regards!

    George Bentley

     Greetings! Looking for some fun in the sun? Come out and support Tampa Bay's own Young SKAL on April 30, 2017 at 12:00 PM! Go fishing and help our young tourism professionals fundraise to help pay the registration fee to attend the SKAL Annual North American Congress in June in Toronto. SKAL Tampa Bay is sending 3 of its young members to represent the club! Fishing trips run 12-6pm. Meet at noon at Hubbard's Marina where Young SKAL's own, Captain Dylan Hubbard, can be found. Parking at John's Pass is best in the parking garage. Then head to the marina office to check-in. Pre-boarding begins at 12:30. Once on the boat you will be handed your rod and reel and your tackle, or do feel free to bring your own if you're more experienced. This trip is great for people of all angler experience, even beginners. You'll be on the water for 5 hours, 3 of which will be full of fishing about 11 miles from shore in about 40 ft water. The proceeds of the $65 ticket will cover the cost of the fishing trip and over half goes toward Young SKAL. A meal plan with drinks can be bought on the boat, or please feel free to bring your own cooler. PROHIBITED: glass & bananas (for safety & luck).To make your reservation call 727-393-1947 and say Y. SKAL Fundraiser. If you can't attend, please feel free to donate online. 

        Check out this video to show you more about what to expect on this half day fishing trip. If you have questions on tackle, feel free to email Capt. Dylan. And remember, “If you’re too busy to go fishing, you’re just too busy!” Thank you for supporting the next generation of SKAL members!

    President’s Corner April 2017

    April’s meeting at Florida Aquarium was fantastic! Much thanks to Lorrie Hero, her staff and the Aramark staff for a great evening. It was great to have Gregg Nicklaus back with us and true to his word, he generated excitement with securing the winning bid for The Epicurean package and kicking off the efforts of the next 30 days to assist our Young Skal members on the expenses of attending the NASC in Toronto.

    We pinned Lorrie Hero (welcome back!), Angel Hubaykah and Kristina Alspaw Monday evening as new members. Congrats to Angel’s Mom, Tina, on winning the 50/50 raffle!

    During our May meeting at Bon Appetit in Dunedin, we will be raising funds for our Young SKAL initiative to go to NASC this year with a “rising star” auction like we did last year at the May 2016 meeting at Sirata Beach Resort. As I mentioned Monday night, please send whatever items you can (with values noted) to my attention at TradeWinds or contact a board member that may be close to your establishment for pickup. Our goal is to have 100 items available for the event.

    We have re-scheduled the First Annual Young SKAL Fishing Trip to Sunday, 4/30/17. Thank you in advance to the Hubbards Marina for working with us so generously on this. 60% of the cost will be donated to Young SKAL. An announcement went out this morning with all the details but in summary, the cost is $65 per person, registration at 12 noon, pre-boarding at 12:30pm and departure at 1pm for one hour of travel each way and 3 hours of fishing. Please RSVP by this Sun. 4/16 if possible so we can assist Hubbard’s with committing to the right vessel and maximizing their booking opportunities. Bring your family, bring your friends, bring strangers and enjoy the afternoon….we can be tourists in our own town for a day! Call 727-393-1947 and use Y.Skal Fundraiser to reserve your tickets today!

    In closing, I would like to thank Gregg Nicklaus again for enlightening us more on the life and career accomplishments of  Pinellas County tourism pioneer, Mr. Sam Johns. Please see below for more details of his contributions throughout his life to SKAL and the Tampa Bay region.

    We look forward to seeing you at Bon Appetit on 5/8, plan ahead for 6/12’s meeting at The Bay Club at Westshore Yacht Club and our July lunch meeting and Golf Tourney at Belleair CC on 7/24!

    Best Skal regards!

    IN MEMORIAM

    Sam John’s

    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Skål Tampa Bay Past President Samuel Charles Johns. Sam passed peacefully surrounded by his family.

    Sam was a leading force behind tourism in Pinellas County as President of Discover Florida Suncoast and was instrumental in developing Tampa Bay as an international tourist destination. Sam was a longtime member of Skål Tampa Bay, served as President, and was fondly known as “Mr. Skal”.  He was our only member to move into a National Skal position where he was honored as President of Skal International U.S.A. (SIUSA) 1999-2000.

    RIP SAM!!

    President’s Corner March 2017

    Hello Everyone…barely getting this one in before March ends!

    Much thanks to VP Colette Florido for facilitating an excellent, albeit, rainy evening at the impressive Chihuly Collection. I think all would agree that having that venue in Tampa Bay is a big plus and for all those that attended please remember to visit the Hot Shoppe with the tickets distributed that evening. I am sure seeing the action of glass artwork production is equally as impressive as viewing the end product.

    Eric Blanc, Board Director, pinned Young SKAL member Bailey Morris and we thank both of them for their participation and support.

    With the help of Capt. Dylan Hubbard, we are working on finalizing the details for re-scheduling the February (weather affected)fishing trip for Sun. 4/30 in order to get it in just before our May meeting which will also be focused on fundraising for possibly up to (4) Young Skalleagues who have shown an interest in attending the Toronto North American SKAL Congress in June. Those details will be out soon separately, so please pencil that day in for a half day trip on Hubbard’s large party fishing boat.

    We look forward to seeing everyone at the Florida Aquarium on Mon. 4/10!

    Best Skal regards!

    George Bentley

    President’s Corner February 2017

    Greetings fellow Skalleagues!

    February…..the fast moving month!

    Our February meeting at Embassy Suites USF was fast pacedand full of great content. Holly Powers, President of SKAL International USA attended our board meeting and shared organizational updates with us and also wanted to have me extend an invitation to all of our members to attend the World Congress in Toronto in June 2017 if they are interested and able. It is unique that the event is happening so close to us and as all past participants have shared with me….you really get the “mojo” being among our peers and fellow Skalleagues.

    It was great to welcome/pin Melissa Silvest, Director of Sales and Event Services at Busch Gardens to the club and we look forward to getting to know her more and possibly arrange a future meeting at her facility.

    We also presented Kristina Trainer, pinned in January, with the balance of her Skal credentials. Kristina is with Expedia and we formally welcome her to our group as well.

    Kimberly Faulk, VP of Sales with Visit Florida presented recent news/updates in Tallahassee regarding the possible de-funding of Visit FL and we have pushed out communication about that to all members.

    We look forward to seeing everyone at the Chihuly Collection in March in downtown St. Petersburg!

    Best Skal regards!

      Hi everyone! Ready for some fun in the sun? Come out and support Tampa Bay's own Young SKAL tourism professionals. They've worked very hard to put this fundraiser together to help pay the registration fee per individual to attend the SKAL Annual North American Congress in June in Toronto. Join us Sunday afternoon, February 26th 12-6pm for a fishing & boating adventure. Meet at noon at Hubbard's Marina. Yes, this event in hosted by Young SKAL's own Captain Dylan Hubbard. Parking at John's Pass is best in the parking garage. Then head to the marina office to check-in. Pre-boarding begins at 12:30. Once on the boat you will be handed your rod and reel and your tackle, or do feel free to bring your own if you're more experienced. This trip is great for people of all angler experience, even beginners. We will be on the water for 5 hours, 3 of which will be full of fishing about 11 miles from shore in about 40 ft water. The proceeds of the $65 ticket will cover the cost of the fishing trip and the rest goes toward Young SKAL. A meal plan with drinks can be bought on the boat, or please feel free to bring your own cooler. PROHIBITED: glass & bananas (for safety & luck). To make your reservation call 727-393-1947 and say Y. SKAL Fundraiser. If you can't attend, please feel free to donate towards this cause. 

     

       Check out this video to show you more about what to expect on this half day fishing trip. If you have questions on tackle, feel free to email Capt. Dylan. And remember, “If you’re too busy to go fishing, you’re just too busy!” Thank you supporting the next generation of SKAL members!
