LYC Annoucements

28 Sep

·        This has been the social season that wasn’t!!  Social events, except one Mexican dinner early on and the very successful LYSS Tuesday benefits, have been nonexistent.  So, looking ahead to 2021, the Executive Committee has decided to suspend collection of the social activity fee ($50) for next year.  Hang onto your 2020 cards as the punches will be honored when events resume!  Dues will remain at $150.  I will send out that notice sometime in February.

·        Boats docked in the basin on the east side of the club must be removed by October 16 as the Boat Club plans to move their docks into the area on Saturday October 17.  Those wishing to do so may move their boat to any open slip on the west side of the club.  Contact Gary (231 690-3710) for more info.

·        Dock holders also watch your email for the request for 2021 dock deposits due October 31.

·        The Annual Membership Meeting is scheduled for October 13 at 7:30 pm.  Unfortunately, due to continuing Executive Order restrictions we are again limited to 10 persons in attendance.  Therefore, only Flag Officers and Committee chairs will attend.  All Flag Officers have indicated their willingness to serve through 2021 so the election of flag officers normally conducted at the annual meeting will not occur.  I plan to prepare and send along a synopsis of 2020 meeting minutes and budget status by close of the calendar year for all member’s benefit.

·        The clubhouse will most likely be closed and winterized during the week of October 19.

Adam Lamb invites LYC members to “The Celebration of Ron Lamb’s Wonderful Life” on Saturday October 24 from 12 Noon to 5 pm at the Hamlin House, 6774 Mears Rd., Ludington.   Ron was a long time LYC member who passed earlier this year.  This from Adam:

Hello friends and family! We are excited to celebrate Ron’s amazing life this fall, actually his birthday weekend! There will be a short memorial service, the Mason County Color Guard (1:00 pm) and a few words spoken to memorialize Ron’s life. Then there will be lots of yummy food, some good single malt scotch and lots and lots of stories! Most activities will be outdoors.” 

Please call or text Adam (616 889-6870) to accept his invite.

Happy Sunday LYC

13 Sep

It looks like we are in for a week of sunny skies with temps in the mid 60’s…perfect!

We had a great Bloomer Cup Sailboat race today.  Twelve boats entered, 3 did not start due to a variety of reasons, 2 did not finish for the same but 7 did finish.  Results are pending as of this writing.  Forty six members and guests enjoyed Fergburgs and beverages following the race served through clubhouse windows, a first for Bloomer Cup post race activities.

Tuesday, September 15: Last Fergburgs of the season from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in support of the Youth Sailing School.  There will be burgers to order as usual and a choice of 2 different sides (potato salad, cole slaw, beans, or cream corn).  Order and pickup at the south kitchen door.  Seating is outside on the deck, picnic tables, or bring your own chair & table for the yard.  Or, grab & go!  One person at a time (mask required) will be allowed through the west deck door to order from the bar.  Since this is a fundraiser for LYSS, membership card “punches” will not be honored; cash or check will😀.  $10 per person.

Wednesday September 16:  Final race of the Corona Cup Sailboat Racing series.  6:00 p.m. start.  If you wish to race or catch a ride, be at the club by 5:30 p.m.

Tuesday October 13 is the annual membership meeting.  If nothing changes Covid wise, we will be limited to 10 participants at the club.  We will try to conduct a ZOOM meeting so the members can join in.  Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
