Subject: Sea Island Rotary (Beaufort) Needs A Few Good Rotarians!

Fellow Rotarians,
Sea Island Rotary Club of Beaufort wishes you well and wants to invite you to participate in one of our major Annual fundraisers.
The Sea Island Adventure Biathlon will once again be held on beautiful and pristine Hunting Island State Park Saturday March 17th at 11 a.m. We have put on this race in our community for over 10 years and it has been a tremendous success for us. We have a three pronged approach to the race: 1) as a monetary fundraiser with the proceeds going back into our local Rotary charities 2) to promote health and fitness in our community 3) Club camaraderie.

Our Request:

• Please make your fellow Rotarians aware of this VERY unique race. We need more participants to ensure continued success. We have found that all clubs have at least some of those “weekend athletes” that enjoy this type of endeavor or that members have friends who would be interested.
• The race begins at 11 a.m. which allows for travel to Beaufort. Better yet, spend the night or weekend in Beautiful Beaufort
• The race is designed as a “doable” challenge. While we may have some high octane participants, most are there for the pure fun of the event.
• If you haven’t visited Hunting Island and experienced the maritime pristine natural beauty of the island you are in for a TREAT.
• The race (link provided) consists of an approximate 5 mile paddle by kayak or paddle board (dolphins included free of charge) followed by an approximate 4-5 mile beautiful trail run. One can participate solo, relay (1 person paddles, 1 person runs), or tandem (2 person kayak with both people running as Team).

Help us continue to make this race a tremendous success while enjoying the camaraderie of Rotary.

As with all clubs sometimes it is hard to get good quality speakers to present to the club. We can change that. Did you know there is a tab in DACdb entitled “SPEAKERS”? This is an area where you can enter your club speakers, rate them and share their contact information for other clubs to contact. We need to grow this section of the database making it easily for the program directors to locate and line up speakers. Please start entering information about your club speakers in this section.

Greetings from the Zone 33-34 Southland Young Professionals Consulting Team!

Rotary International reached out to our zones in June 2016 looking for Rotarians under the age of 45 to start a dialogue and better understand how to attract and engage young professional Rotarians and Rotaractors. We had the opportunity to meet other Rotarians and Rotaractors in Atlanta for a jam-packed weekend. Even though we are from different areas of the country we found we all have the same issues of getting the younger members of our communities to embrace Rotary.

The Zone 33-34 Young Professionals Consulting Team is a small energetic segment of the group who met in Atlanta. Our mission is to serve clubs and districts who desire to recruit, retain, and engage service-minded leaders of all ages through a unique perspective as young Rotarians and Rotaractors.

We have set up a website (http://www.rotaryypteam.us/) for others to communicate with our team and in-vite Rotarians to ask any of our members questions related to gaining the interest of young professionals in their communities. The website also gives individuals information related to what impact our age group has in the world. In addition, we have a Facebook page that is seeing quite a bit of interest, but we can always use more. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/rotaryypteam/ to see all that’s going on and get your questions answered. We have team members ready and waiting to assist. Therefore, just reach out to our team as we are ready to help you any way we can to grow the under 45 population of Rotarians around the world.
