LYC Happenings

14 Jun

On behalf of the House & Social committees and the entire executive committee I am pleased to announce the re-opening, albeit highly modified, of the Ludington Yacht Club for the 2020 season.  With respect to the current Coronavirus Orders issued by the State of Michigan, CDC, and FDA the LYC has adopted the following guidelines to ensure the safety for all LYC members while visiting the clubhouse for social events. It is the responsibility of each LYC club member to help maintain a safe environment at the clubhouse.

  1. Please read all signage posted near door upon entering building
  2. Please sanitize your hands upon entering building
  3. Personal masks must be worn until you get to your table and while you are away from your table, i.e., ordering drinks at the bar.
  4. Do not remove any chairs from stacks, or sit at the bar, we are limited to 35 chairs inside.
  5. Chairs are one time use each night, no turning them over for another guest.
  6. Seating is limited to four per table,except, a predetermined group or family may seat a maximum of eight together.
  7. When exiting the clubhouse please place chairs in the same orientation as you found them.
  8. Maintain (to the best of your ability) social distancing of six feet.

Ordering drinks.

Place orders at the bar station only

Maintain social distance of six feet.

Please stay on the wood floor, marked by an ‘X” until next at the bar for order

You may run a tab if you desire (this will lessen frequency of money exchange)

Outdoor Seating like indoor seating, should be one person per night, no turn over of seating.  Should you feel it is necessary to reuse a chair / table area, QUAT sanitizing spray and paper towels are available to clean the common surfaces.

Food preparation.

All workers must wear gloves and mask, at all times, no exceptions.

QUAT sanitation spray will be available.

We cannot serve anything “buffet” style nor can members bring in food items prepared elsewhere.

With these basic sideboards, the following events are planned for the remainder of June.

Friday, June 19:  Cocktails at the Club (drinks only, no appetizers please) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

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.

Tuesday June 30: LYSS alternate Tuesday fundraiser serving up burritos.  More info to follow.
