EYC Labor Day Weekend Activities

Closing of the Club: Volunteer and BBQ, Sat. 9-1 p.m. on Sept 2nd

Come join fellow members and committee chairs on Saturday, September 2nd in our traditional “Closing of the Club.”  This time-honored and rewarding tradition involves members working together to put away boats, securing the dock, and organizing the clubhouse.  Members should come ready to work together and then celebrate with a lunch time BBQ (burgers, dogs and chips are provided along with lemonade and cookies). We’re hoping to get 50 volunteers to make for manageable work. You won’t want to miss out on this last event of the season!  We will plan to start at 9:00am sharp.

Labor Day Weekend Sailing Clinic, Sunday Sept 3rd 9-3 p.m.

Join our Gibraltar High School Sailing Team and our friends from the UW-Milwaukee Sailing Team for some Labor Day Weekend sailing.  Former EYC Sailing Director Isak Peterson will lead the sailors through a day of 420 drills on the water both in the morning and afternoon.  Students will take a mid-day lunch break on the dock.  After the clinic, participants will derig several 420s for winter storage. Lunch provided but clinic participants should have a life vest and closed toed shoes. Free to EYC member, or $10 for non members. Questions? Contact Jodi at  [email protected]

End of Season – Boats / Slips / Lockers

It is that time of year. Our staff have all headed off to school and our volunteer-led committees are working to prepare the club for the winter, so your cooperation and understanding is appreciated. Privately owned boats, excluding Flying Scots, must be removed prior to club closing, September 2. The final day to remove privately owned Flying Scots is September 30. All lockers also need to be cleaned out by 9am Sept 2. Remaining contents and unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity after club closing.

It is still summer: Want to use the club in late August?

Limited use of the remaining club Flying Scot for qualified club members may be pre-arranged through volunteer Jodi Hoyerman, depending on availability [email protected], through August 31. Please note that there are no staff available to provide assistance and the skipper is responsible to sail at their own risk and for any damage.

Lost, But Could Be Found

The Lost And Found Bin gets cleaned out with all items donated on Sept 2nd.  If you are missing something, drop everything this instant and get down to the EYC to claim it. Seriously folks, there is some good stuff in there.
