LYC Happenings

4 May

The following is an update on the house and grounds from Gary Ferguson as well as a request for help at the end of his update, please let him know if you can lend a hand. We are still uncertain when the club will officially open, but rest assured, when it does, we will be ready, thanks to Gary’s hard and never ending oversight and work over the past several weeks/months.

“Friday we had a group at the club to clean up all the debris from the kitchen remodel project. There is a 30 yard dumpster in the driveway that is almost full up. Also, this group removed, washed, and stored all the ice eaters. The shed got a big cleaning dent in it also. We were able to maintain social distance and everyone wore a mask or face shield. After about 4-5 hours, the mission was accomplished.

A BIG thank you to the following for help Friday:

Tom Bell, Zach Miller, Alex Zaydel, Rich Kirby, Mark Hill, Andy Klevorn, Al Buck, Ted Toll, Pat Shinn (soon to rejoin LYC), and Gary Ferguson

And a special thanks to Jill Kaines for all her days of painting in the kitchen. Looking great!

Speaking of the kitchen project, the construction is scheduled to be completed in another 2 weeks. Left to do is replace about 80 floor tiles, attic ladder to install, new cabinets, finish 3 storage closets, bring in a new/old larger beer cooler (this Monday), finish the shower and wall installation for the transient bathroom. Likely the last item to be installed will be the bar top as it is being made off-site and due to the pandemic it could be out a month or more.

Mark Hill is planning a major cleanup of the inside maybe starting Saturday the 16th. He will contact a few members for their help. More on this from Mark later.

The west docks are clear and ready for boats now. The boat club is planning to remove their docks Saturday the 16th. There is electricity to the docks but it will be a couple more weeks before the plumbing of the water lines is finished. The outer east wall is clear and ready for boats and also the north east outside slips are open and can be used.

There will be more fill added to the road and driveway over the next couple weeks.

Also, there remains a big project to install a 4’ wide boardwalk all around the outside steel wall. All the material is on site. This can be started this week and 6-8-10 helpers to cut boards and screw them in place will be needed. A lot of bending and on-your-knees work. Gary is looking for volunteers with saws and battery screw guns to help out. If you can help  call him at 231-690-3710 for details. The weather this coming week looks semi okay.”

Stay safe everyone until we can gather once again.
