Calling all Dogs

We like to keep the dock extra friendly, so just a gentle reminder, Dogs please keep your Masters under control while at the EYC. If they make a mess on the dock, clean it up. Please do not let them pee on the Life Ring, there is a grassy area and bathrooms located on the upper level of the clubhouse. If there are a lot of people or food around please keep them on a leash.  It is your job to keep your Master under control.

Calling all fans of Sunsets and Potlucks

Friday night on the dock is not just for racers (or families of racers). BYOB and join other EYC members for cocktails on the bleachers. As the racing comes to a close, we gather around the EYC grills to enjoy dinner and wrap up the week with a gorgeous Door County Sunset. Bring a main dish for yourself/family and a side dish to share with the other members.

Calling all the Men
