We have regattas coming up which means it's time for everyone to get their boats out of the center parking area. If you are not planning to put your boat in the next couple of weekends, please move it to the back row along the fence on the west side of the grounds. This will open up the center parking area and give the club a more yacht-friendly look.
As we move into the summer months, remember to keep the area around your boat clean and cut the grass. This also applies to everyone who has a boat on the back lot. Please notice the little bits of trash that may blow into your area. If we all just pick up the little bit then no one has to pick up a lot. It only takes a second for all of us to pick up one item and throw it away. Also, please take your empty cans and bottles home or to the recycling center next to the clubhouse, as we do not have anyone picking up the empties at this time.
I would like to ask that as you use the floating dock that you check your hinge pins and hair clips. The hair clips will break and can be replace before the hinge pin falls out. The clips are a lot less expensive than the pins. Also look at the cross members for the 3/8" hinge plates. If they are cracked or missing let me or someone on the port commission know so we can address that issue before it becomes a problem.
All the ice machines should be working now. If there is an issue, please let me or John Mahoney know so we can address any problems quickly.
And as always, check that your OR registration is up to date. We have several Lasers and other boats that do not have current registration stickers—some with no registration stickers at all. Please check yours. When I make my rounds checking boats for current OR stickers, if yours is not up-to-date ,you will be losing that moorage.
Finally, please remember that we are a yacht club and not a storage lot for derelict boats. John Franklin will be helping me this year with the policing of the boat that are on the grounds. Please be courteous to John and if you have any issues or concerns, please contact me as he is working on my behalf and not his own.
There are two trailer spaces that have opened up. For more information, click here.
Hope to see you at the lake.
