Marine Racing Club schedules regular monthly meetings during the off-season (October through April). Meetings are generally held during the third week of the month at 7 p.m., although the actual date is always flexible and is announced below, on the MRC Facebook page, as well as via email to the club roster well in advance. The typical MRC monthly meeting duration is one hour to 90-minutes. Robert's Rules of Order are followed, and a social time follows adjournment. Unless otherwise warranted, informal club meetings are held during the racing season at a given race site.
