Long Live the Goats!
" . . . As you undoubtedly know, members of the Island Goats Sailing Society have sailed in at least twenty-five Chicago Mackinac Races. We Goats do not just graze and drink together, but are involved in many activities to perpetuate and commemorate the Chicago Mackinac Race. It will be pleasant to have the space to tell of our contributions to Mackinac Island's Medical Center, about our Large Red Nun Buoy and Plaque on the beach near the Finish Line and of our most enjoyable meetings, honors and other activities. The most characteristic quality of Island Goats is their sense of humor about the seeming absurdity of the many situations encountered in getting to Mackinac Island each July. Goat Anne Juell expressed it well when she said "Friendship is the most important part of the racing." . . ."
