LYC Club House is Closed Until Spring

5 Nov

Today the clubhouse was winterized.  As such, there is no water inside the building until sometime in April. All toilets, showers, sinks, and most importantly, the ice maker are not operable. 

Thanks to Gary Ferguson, Alex Zaydel, and Chico (Jim) Ricklefs for performing this important final task of the 2021 season.
Also thanks to all our Flag Officers, notably our outgoing Commodore Scott Hultman, the LYC Board of Directors, Shareholders, and all member volunteers who gave freely of their time and energy to ensure that LYC continues to be the best yacht club in the Great Lakes.

Until spring.

Late October at LYC

25 Oct

Gary Ferguson wishes to announce that on Tuesday the 26th starting at 11:00 a.m. there will be a work bee to prepare the docks and grounds for the winter.  Tasks to be accomplished are the following:

  • Plug in Ice eaters and test before taking to the docks;
  • Install ice eaters, 8 on east and 8 on west; Gary will have a dock chart showing approximate places to put the ice eaters;
  • Use the plug-in thermostats, but leave all circuit breakers off for now;
  • Blow out water lines on docks, from the main water line manifold on east wall of clubhouse;
  • Gather up life rings;
  • Remove all boarding steps;
  • Remove all left over hoses and dock lines;
  • Remove the water meters (3);
  • Stack picnic tables;
  • Grills inside.

Might take 2-3 hours.  Could use 8 helpers. Please let Gary know (231-690-3710) if you can help out.
KICKOFF for the MSU / U of M game is Saturday October 30 at Noon.  Come down to the club around 11:30 a.m. ahead of kickoff and claim your spot.    The bar will be open and Gary Ferguson will be frying up Fergburgs at half-time for the gastronomes among us.  Please feel free to bring snacks as well.

Wear your colors to support the team of your choice!!
