2018 Season message from the Commodore

Dear EYC Members

The season has officially started! Dave Allely and the maintenance committee had over 20 volunteers for emptying the EYC on the long weekend in May. Thanks to everyone that came out to help and to Peter Barton for lunch. Last weekend Dave and his crew could be seen building new dock sections and replacing the outside EYC signs. Another job well done!

On July 1, from 5-7pm, the families of the late Bill Fellows will be hosting a celebration of Bill’s life at Gini’s cottage (rain location – EYC). There will be a BBQ and margarita’s – friends are welcome to bring an appetizer.

The website has a schedule of all the sailing and social events planned for the summer. Some of the highlights include:

· June 30, Opening Banquet

· July 14, Irish event with dinner and dancing

· July 28, Pied Piper Parade

· August 4, Art on the Boulevard

· August 11, Luau event with dinner and dancing

· August 25, Closing Banquet

Swim and Sail camp is ready for another successful season. Returning instructors, Gabby Gooch, Kaelyn Kempe, and Aiden Banks will be joined by Kaatje Kempe and Alex Banks. On-line registration can be accessed from the EYC website or in person on June 30 between 11am-1pm. Some camp weeks were already sold out last year by the in-person registration date – so early on-line registration is recommended.

Stephanie Pirscher will also be at the EYC on Saturday, June 30 between 11am and 1pm to collect membership payments and hand out the threefold schedule.

I’m looking forward to serving as the EYC commodore for the 2018 season. With the help of vice Commodore Jake Chesterfield, rear Commodore John Kerr, and countless volunteers, I’m sure it will be a great summer!

Happy Sailing!

Kelly Shillington,
2018 EYC Commodore
