EYC/EHF Scavenger Hunt-Saturday, August 19th

The Ephraim Yacht Club and Ephraim Historical Foundation invite members to attend an Adult Mixer Photo Scavenger Hunt. Meet new friends, then team up to test your knowledge of Ephraim trivia! Tickets are $10 per person. Proceeds benefit both the EYC and EHF.

Arrive at the Anderson Barn no later than 5:45 PM. Volunteer to be a designated driver when you register (DD’s car should be able to fit at least 5 people). Teams re-group at the Ephraim Yacht Club at 8 PM to have answers scored. Enjoy beverages (BYOB) and snacks and share tall tales while organizers tally results. Creative answers earn bonus points! Prizes go to the top two teams!

Boat Usage post Season- August 14th-September 1st

Farewells can be difficult and we have had to send off our wonderful instructors and dockhands for their winter destinations and endeavors.  While we may not see those friendly faces, members can still take out a boat by appointment.  Call 920-421-0755 to set a date and time.

All requests must be made a day in advance.

Clubhouse Closing and Clean-up Work Day September 2nd

Bid a fond farewell to the 2023 summer season and join us on the dock one last time for our closing up work day.  Come down to the dock at 9:00 a.m.
