Mudhead Dillon Fund

Richard J. Dillon - September 11, 1992

Richard J. Dillon was very much a part of the Mudheads and its growth. He was a good friend who helped immensely. Richard J. DillonRichard always reflected the "proper attitude" - fellowship, pitching in, and most importantly, enjoying the moment. Richard passed away on September 11, 1992 doing what he enjoyed the most sailing. He was 44 years old. He is missed. When things start to become serious.... it may be a good time to stop and remember what Richard was all about. It may help to put things into their proper perspective. . . . the proper attitude, so to speak. This fund is dedicated to his memory.


Mudhead Dillon Fund Policy

Mudhead members are encouraged to contribute and use the Dillon Fund. It is there to encourage, promote, and support Mudhead sailors in regional and national US Sailing Association championships and other events. And it's a great way to get the Mudhead name out there!

Eligibility: Funds shall go to any Mudhead member in good standing, who has been a member for (1) year or more and who has submitted a letter requesting funds explaining the event and overall anticipated costs. If there is more than one request for one event, the Board may determine eligibility based on resume or sail off. All crew must also be or become members prior to the event.

Intention: Based on eligibility and receipt of letter asking for support, the Mudhead Dillon Fund will pay entry fees to regional qualifiers of USSA Championship ladder events. All disbursements of the fund must be voted on by the board of managers.
