LYC Final Activity of 2022

1 Nov

For those of you still in Ludington, there will be a final Cocktails at the Club on Friday November 4 starting about 5:30 p.m.  The goal for this party is to reduce the beer and wine inventory going into the winter months.  Beer will be $1.00 and wine will be reduced accordingly as well.  Bring an appetizer to share if you wish.  Since we now have our SDM License, any beer & wine left at the end of the evening can be purchased by members and taken home.
Last Thursday a group of volunteers completed the dock and grounds winter prep work. Ice eaters were installed, the dock water was turned off and winterized, the shed was cleaned up, picnic tables stacked, deck furniture stowed, & the perimeter ropes taken down.  The following members were in attendance and made quick work of it; Alex Zaydel, Jeff Yeager, Mark Otto, Connelly Bowling, Al Buck, Jim McGee, Gary Ferguson, & Dave Golder.

This will most likely be the final “LYC Happenings” for 2022.  After the first of the year, I will send along an announcement regarding the 2023 membership dues.  As a reminder, dues for 2023 will be $225.  If, at this time, your plans for 2023 will not include the LYC, I would appreciate hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Have a great winter everyone and I hope to see y’all next season.

2022 Season is Ending Soon

24 Oct

What a string of glorious fall days we have had.  The swallows depart from San Juan Capistrano today.
This is the week MSU and U of M fans look forward to all year.  The fight for the Paul Bunyon Trophy begins on Saturday October 29 with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. in Ann Arbor.  But leading up to this is SOUPER SATURDAY TAILGATE AT LYC.Gather at 6:00 p.m. with your favorite soup to share (chili counts as soup BTW!).  There will also be shredded pork on hand for sandwiches.  Becky needs to reduce the bar inventory going into the off season so please come and help her out in this important endeavor. 

After this, the club will begin the winter close up process over the following weeks. There is nothing further on the 2022 calendar.
At the annual meeting last week, the following members were elected to Flag Officer positions for the 2023 season:  Commodore, Jim McGee; Vice Commodore, Steve Leedham; Rear Commodore, Alex Zaydel; Treasurer, Brian Moore; and Secretary, Denny Lavis.  Congrats to all.
At the same meeting, the membership present approved a Board of Directors recommendation to increase annual membership dues to $225 per year.  Earlier, the Board decided to eliminate the Social Activity fee beginning in 2023 so all future dinner events will require cash for payment, i.e., no more “punches”.

What follows is a message from Commodore Jim Mcgee:

Hello Ludington club members.

It’s been an eventful and exciting year for us.  We’ve had a return to normal after covid, an unexpected issue with the break wall, and a lot of activity through the social club and other groups.

Flag officers all did an amazing job this year, thank you.  I would also like to thank all the committee chairs and all of the members who volunteered to help with docks, grounds and more.  Dave Golder agreed to be our new dock committee chair and has done a great job.  Gail Kretchman is our new social chair, thank you Gail.  I’ve also taken over the house chair position.  This helps to lessen the burden on some of our members who have been doing more than their share, so if anyone would like to take over the house chair, please come see me. Our members really stepped up to get the job done and done well.

We had a great Bloomer Cup this year and a good turnout for the beer can races more boats than ever so let’s see if we can add a few for next year, Thanks Tim.

We had many great dinners this year thanks to the members who organized and helped cook and clean. 

And of course, a great big shout out to Becky who did a wonderful job behind the bar again this year.

I look forward to next year and have another great year.Commodore: Jim McGeeEveryone be safe out there and have a good winter wherever you may be.  See y’all in the Spring!
Secretary Denny
