Ahoy Sailors! Lucky for us, we are still sailors no matter what the weather is outside. Hearing about the snow in Iowa, I am sending wishes that you are staying warm and safe.
Over the past month your Board, Racing Directors, Social committee and Sailing School has been working hard to prepare a great season ahead for all of us at SYC and SYCSS. We have made great progress on our potential contract with the Marina, membership dues, and a great line up of activities for 2019.
The Membership Team is actively preparing updated Membership levels and our 2019 Membership Drive which will begin later this month. Watch for the upcoming communication from Jenn and Jerry so you can sign up!
Because of the Clubhouse and our community upgrades, the membership dues will need to increase in order to cover the costs of these investments in our sailing community. No matter what, I hope you will appreciate the new location and feel it valuable to have our own Clubhouse right there on the lake. It will be a great place to gather with old and new sailing friends, while enjoying camaraderie both on and off the water.
This is truly a historic time for our Club and School and you are all part the long awaited vision to finally have a place to call home. No more moving equipment and supplies around which will allow more fun at our social times, classes, and less work for our volunteers. This also gives opportunity to invite friends who are interested in sailing and safe boating to check us out and hopefully join us for the SYCSS new First Sail Program coming in 2019. Think about friends and family who you can invite to join our Club and who are interested in learning more about sailing through our Sailing School.
Looking forward to the best year ever at SYC. Thank you for your support.
Smooth sailing wherever you are,
Lois Dixon, SYC Commodore
