In addition to all the EYC’s routine daily fun, such as lessons, racing, swimming, jumping (but never diving) off the pier, windsurfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, grilling, visiting with friends, bridge, bunco, four-square, and other things which have yet to be thought of, here’s what’s happening:
The first MEN’S NIGHT ON THE DOCK begins at 7:30 PM on Friday, July 19. EYC men can watch (or compete in) the Friday evening Laser and 420 races. We will fire up the grills around 7:30, and as the women and juniors depart after the races, manly men will partake in manly food, manly drink, manly cigars, and manly conversation. BYO food, drink and cigars. The EYC’s no-smoking rule is suspended during this event only, and only outdoors.
EYC member Jenny Miller INVITES ALL EYC WOMEN TO A GET-TOGETHER at her home at 2776 Beechtree Lane in Ephraim beginning at 7:00 PM on Friday, July 19. Bring an hors d’oeuvre to share; Jenny will provide wine, beer, and soda.

We found four (4) pairs of eyeglasses at the July 13 Dinner with Gary Jobson. If you lost a pair please stop by the EYC on a weekday and ask for Woody.
The EYC needs some ANCHORS and BAILERS. If you can donate some, please drop them off at the EYC.
We need small anchors for the marks we use every day in races and lessons. Mushroom-type from 6 to 10 lbs. are perfect. Other items which make great mark anchors are weight-lifting weights and window sash counterweights (if you have ever torn out old double-hung windows, you know what we mean).
We need gallon-sized plastic jugs which we turn into scoop bailers. Milk jugs, orange juice jugs, and bleach jugs are the best. All donated jugs must have their caps and must be thoroughly rinsed prior to drop off.
Volunteers are needed to help with the REGATTA WELCOME PARTY on the evening of Friday, August 2. if you would like to help with this simple, fun party, please contact event chairs Laura O’Rourke [email protected] or Jeanne Papenthien [email protected]
