From the Club Manager May 2019

This Spring has seen some amazing work done by the membership. The grounds are looking great and the new Youth Dock is a few screws from done. Much thanks to the leadership of Marji Clune and Bob Pritchard and to Gordon Mattatall and Paul Stephens.

To keep the club looking nice we ask that you pick up and clean up like it is your own home. And we remind you to mow under your boat and trailer all season long—but especially right now as grass is growing so fast. Of timely importance is for members to move their boats from the center island in the parking lot before Memorial Day.

The Memorial Day Regatta is coming up very soon. If you have any questions, please contact the event chair Dean Mitchell. He will be happy to give answers. And you can register online here. You may notice that we have several other regattas coming up, including the always fun Live on the Edge Multihull Regatta in June. Yes, you still have time to buy a catamaran!

The EYC Club Calendar is online and updated often. It is a Google Calendar for those of you who use those. Check it out here. Also, we have the best website anywhere. Check it out!

If you missed the Skippers and Mates dinner you missed a great one.  The hard work of Shelley Johnson and Nick Tabet and their many helpers fed 107 people and entertained us all with a slide show from Haley Lhamon of Team Sail Like a Girl in last year's R2AK race. The 2019 edition of this race starts in just a couple of weeks and can be followed here.

We want to thank Mike Gerot (and his six supervisors) who planted a dogwood at the request of the Board. It is in the center of the grounds and is in memory of Jo Walder, our longtime bookkeeper and friend, who passed away last summer.

The weekly schedule of Tuesday Fun Races, Wednesday Lidos and Lasers, and Thursday Night Racing are all in full swing. The lake is full. The kayaks and SUPs are on the beach. Time to go out!
