Letter from the Commodore

commodore doug woods

Happy spring everyone,

For those of you that do not know me, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Doug Woods.  I am married to Leslie Woods and we are the proud parents of seven children, five girls and two boys. Our boat is on D dock slip 54 the North office. I’ve been a social member of the club since 2009. My family and I liked the club so much we purchase three docks in 2011. Nothing like diving right in!

We have been boating on the river for 20 years. As we bought bigger boats we moved to different marinas. We have kept our boats at Lake Center, the Yacht Club of St. Louis, and Woodland marinas lasting a few years at each. I believe we are at the nicest marina on the river and I get the pleasure of being the Commodore so thank you for that.

I’ve been on the board since 2013 so I feel like I know some of the history of the club. What I have been finding out as the Commodore this year is that the records of the club’s history are dispersed through several people. I would like to bring all those records together under one roof.  So what I ask of you is if you have any copies of anything pertaining to the club’s history, meeting minutes, duck tales, old pictures, anything along those lines please get them to me or bring them to the office. This will help maintain the club’s history.  I will copy anything you have and get it back to you for your records if you would like.

Our board meetings are the first Monday of every month at 7 PM. They are held in the main dining room. I would love to see everyone’s participation in those meetings. Again thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as the Commodore of the Duck Club Marina.


Doug Woods
