LYC Happenings

29 Jun

Thanks to Mark & Patty Otto and crew for a successful Mexican Dinner Saturday.  Thirty members and guests enjoyed a socially distant dining experience; most dined outdoors and dinner was plated and delivered to tables.  They demonstrated we can make it work!  It also was a good introduction for Andy Hamilton, our bartender…thanks Andy!

Next up is the alternate Tuesday (June 30) fundraiser for the sailing school.  Jill Kaines and Gail Kretchman are serving up “Potato Pigs” consisting of a baked potato topped with BBQ pulled pork, cheese, bacon, and green onion with sour cream on the side along with a side salad for $10 per person.  Since this is a fundraiser for LYSS, membership card “punches” will not be honored; cash or check will.  Serving from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.  Weather forecast looks good for outdoor dining if you so choose.  Always available to go.  Indoor seating is appropriately distanced.

Sailboat Racing:  Every Wednesday evening beginning at 6:00 p.m. (get to dock earlier to catch a ride or race)


The inaugural race of the 2020 Corona Cup season got started with more of a whimper than a bang.The field of 2 boats were greeted with very light winds ranging from 1-5 knots, making the southern progress slow. Despite the lack of wind, it was a beautiful day on the water. The sun was shining, the air was fresh and at least for a short period of time the flies were not biting. After about 90 minutes and with a little more than a half mile left to the first mark, a decision was made to call the race at 7:24pm.So I guess the “Official results this week look something like this:

Special recognition this week goes to the crew of Serendipity (Dave Golder & Ken Wierenga). This is Dave’s first season as a boat owner at LYC so it was great to see him out there Wednesday.I hope to see more of you off the dock this week. Early weather reports show that Wednesday may be the nicest day this week? Wishing everyone a fantastic week!

Upcoming Week at LYC

21 Jun

Just a reminder  Fergburgs and Mexican dinner this coming week, seating is still available for Saturday’s dinner (details below).

Also, please put your name tag on when arriving so our new bartender, Andy, will know you are a member and can be served at the bar. Name tag rack is in a new location and easier to access!

Gary Ferguson wanted everyone, especially the members that have docks, to know that the pump out is now operational.

Tuesday June 23:  Fergburgs will be served up by Gary Ferguson and crew from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in support of the Youth Sailing School.  The process will be a bit different this year.  The plan is to have burgers to order as in the past but in addition, you will choose 2 of 4 different sides (potato salad, cole slaw, beans, or cream corn).  The order will come in “to go” packaging that you can take to an indoor (35 person limit) or outdoor table or take home to eat. Orders will be placed, paid for, and picked up at, or near, the bar.  Since this event is a fundraiser for the LYSS, cash or check is the acceptable form of donation (no membership card punches).  Recommended donation is $10 per person. The suggested donation reflects the addition of sides and the packaging materials required plus the significant increase in food cost.

Friday, June 26:  Cocktails at the Club (drinks only, no appetizers please) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Saturday June 27:  Mexican Dinner hosted by Mark & Patty Otto.  Social to start at 6:00 p.m. with dinner served at 7:00 p.m.   This will be a $10 per person event, cash or card punch.  Once again, Sandy Gomez will be taking reservations for dinners.  Please call or text her at (231) 690-6224 to make a reservation; only 35 reservations for indoor seating can be taken.  If you wish to specify outdoor seating, with the caveat that in case of unfavorable weather, you would need to have your dinner delivered “to go”, she can accept 20 additional reservations.  Reservations close Wednesday June 24.  The menu includes:

Tossed Salad – will be served individually in disposable bowls

Plate with Chicken or Steak Wet Burrito (we will ask each guest their preference) 

Rice and bean sides will be put on the plate with the burrito. 

Chocolate Sheet Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream and some Chocolate syrup

Each guest will be served at their table the salad, plate and dessert.
