2009 FLYING SCOT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS – UPDATE – 2008

The EYC will host the largest event in its history, the Flying Scot
North American Championship regatta, from August 1 – 7, 2009.  Eighty
to one hundred Flying Scots from all over the United States and Canada
are expected to attend.  Besides being a lot of fun, this event will
introduce EYC members to a higher caliber of sailing competition, will
showcase Ephraim andDoor County as a premium racing venue, and will
allow all of us to make new friends in the Flying Scot class.

Racing will take place from Sunday, August 2, through Friday, August 7,
2009.  In addition, there will be several dinners and parties
throughout the event to which everyone is invited, including
non-competitors and non-EYC members.

In order to put on an event of the quality expected by our guests, a
lot of volunteers is needed to help with all aspects of this event
including:

* registration and measuring

* towing, safety/rescue, race committee, and other on-the-water jobs

* launching and recovery

* meals, events and hospitality

We particularly seek volunteers who can provide the following
equipment:  1) ATVs which can be equipped with trailer balls to launch
Flying Scots at the Firehouse ramp, and (2) powerboats for use in
towing, safety/rescue, race committee, and to carry judges, spectators
and photographers.

We also will need to house certain VIPs such as judges and race officers.

Finally, we are looking for photographers to document the event and make digital photos available to all.

If you wish to volunteer, please contact regatta Chairman Carol
Claypool at carolclaypool@msn.com or regatta Vice-Chairman Jay Lott at
jlott@reinhartlaw.com and put “NAC Volunteer” in the Subject line.
Because much of the planning needs to be accomplished this summer, we
need to identify our volunteers NOW so that we will be ready in 2009.
Please volunteer!
