EYC membership renewal notices for 2011 have been mailed to all 2010 members (except Student members) and arrive in your mail box this week. The dues are the same level as 2010.
If your renewal is postmarked by February 28 and accompanied by the correct payment, you are entitled to an early renewal discount (except Student members). (Student members can renew their memberships online when they sign up for 2011 lessons. Keep an eye out for a future e-mail announcing when lesson sign-ups are open.)
The EYC membership year is from June 1 through the following May 31. Please make sure that you check all your directory information carefully on the renewal form and include information for any children under the age of 25. Your renewal must be postmarked by April 1 in order to guarantee your inclusion in the 2011 Membership Directory booklet.
The EYC is a bargain! There is no place else where you can get free use of 30 sailboats and kayaks, high quality racing in four one-design classes, access to one of the largest lesson programs in the United States, junior and teen activities, swimming and sunning on the EYC pier, bridge and bunco overlooking beautiful Eagle Harbor, and numerous social events with your friendly fellow members — all for less than $150 per year.
Remember, in order to use EYC facilities and take part in EYC activities, you must be a member of the EYC. Parents and grandparents of students are reminded that, in order for a junior to take part in EYC lessons and junior activities, that junior must be either a Student member or the child of a Family member. Mere status as the grandchild of an EYC member is NOT sufficient to allow a junior to sign up for lessons or participate in junior activities.
Return your membership renewal soon to keep your access to your second home on the water — the Ephraim Yacht Club!
If you have any questions about membership, or if you do not receive your renewal notice soon, contact EYC’s Membership chair, Nancy Claypool, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (504) 593-0875.
