From the Club Manager March 2019

Yay! The season is upon us. Pretty much anyone can put in and go sail now. The snow pack is in great shape but now it’s the time in the season where we want rain to fill the reservoirs. Most of the reservoirs are not yet half full, although Fern Ridge is slightly over half full. So we want rain for the next month! You can keep track of lake water levels through this link provided by the Army Corps of Engineers. If you do put your keelboat in soon, please be cautious of the potential for early spring storm wave damage in slips on C, D, and E docks.

We are actively fundraising to help with the costs of building the new Youth Dock. If you would like to help out with a donation, please contact Gary Powell or me.  We are excited about this project which will make teaching our junior sailors in the Zumas much easier. And speaking of juniors, looks like they have a bunch of fun activities planned for the season, so stay tuned for more on that.

 The Jungle Cruise is back this year and is scheduled for July 6.  If you haven't done this before, it is an absolute must. If you have done it I know you will want to do it again. If you would like information or want to help, contact John Ward.

 We are changing the rules slightly regarding clubhouse checkouts to help ensure a spotless cleanup. Those of you who are organizing private parties, recruit your cleanup crew first!

I would like to take a moment to thank the Board for all their hard work this winter to ensure a great sailing season.  

Oh, and some of you have been wondering about snow damage. At the club there was none other than a few downed branches and it was without power for about half a day that first day. My house on the other hand...
