6th Annual Fyr Bal Cookout

Saturday, June 18, 6:00 p.m. Come one, come all to an EYC family cookout. Hosted by Steve Latreille and Jack O’Rourke. This has quickly become a wonderful tradition. Bring a side dish or dessert as well as your own beverages. Brats and burgers will be provided. The EYC dock is a perfect place to watch the lighting of the bonfires and the Fyr Bal fireworks! This is yet another fun casual party to meet and greet old and new members alike!

Wed. June 22, Junior Activities Begin

We are kicking off our weekly youth events with a new activity “Game Night”  from 6:00- 8:00 pm.  Sign up in the clubhouse beginning Friday, June 16th. There is a $5 per youth participation fee. Youths are welcome from ages 8 years and up.  EYC youth are encouraged to bring a non-member or even two for this initial event and share the fun of Wednesday night youth activities.  The Youth Activities Committee would appreciate your time and/or donations for a successful night of fun. Please see the online signup sheet for all of the details.  All of the requests are very minimal.  Questions, please email [email protected]

Teen Activities Begin Thursday, June 23  

Our first teen activity is PickleBall!  This fast paced and popular game is similar to Tennis and Ping Pong and not just for old folks!  Sign up in the club house beginning Friday, June 16th.  The Teen Activity Chairs, Jeanne Papenthien and Lisa Gifford are open to teen night suggestions. Please email us with your ideas at [email protected] and [email protected].  Bring a Pickleball racquet if you have one.

Attention all Laser Racers!

Laser sailors are needed to help to repair the Laser fleet. Please come to EYC at 1:00 PM on Saturday (June 18) and 9:00 AM on Sunday (June 19) to help repair some of the Lasers. Laser sailors that volunteer at any one of the repair sessions will receive priority in Laser boat draws. No experience necessary. Look for Tommy Papenthien and Michael Faugust on the dock. Also, a reminder that the Laser Master series starts this Friday. Any questions? Please email [email protected] .

Opening Social June 25th  Looking for volunteers to help

The Opening Social is just around the corner on Saturday, June 25th at 6pm.  This event is for members 18 and older. The club will provide beverages and guests bring an appetizer to share.

EYC depends on our wonderful membership to volunteer at all of the EYC activities and events.  If you haven’t volunteered in the past, volunteering at the Opening Social is a great way to socialize and meet other members.  All of the volunteer needs are super easy and with very little time commitment. To volunteer, please click on the attached link to signup
