Dear Fellow Members,

What a wonderful stretch of fabulous weather! It certainly makes everything surrounding

CV – 19 easier to take, although I must admit productivity of the “work from home” environment in my business does seem to be declining a bit as a result. No matter: the respite is much needed and well deserved.

My thanks to all of you for your patience, understanding, and compliance with the ever-changing and often confusing, CV-19 regulations and guidelines put forth by the City, County and State. As you’ve heard from me before, our compliance is key not only to the health and well-being of our staff and membership but also important to our ability to continue to provide you with the service and club atmosphere that you expect, deserve, and that we enjoy providing.

We had a wonderful, albeit different, and quiet, July 4th weekend. Thanks to my dear friend, Alex Bevan, who closed out the weekend with a wonderful Sunday afternoon of poolside music. We will continue to provide musical entertainment from local solo, duo and trio act on the weekends, in compliance with existing protocols.

We have a General Membership Meeting scheduled for this coming Tuesday, July 14th. This meeting will be a virtual (Zoom) meeting which will involve me presenting a State of the Club address. Instructions regarding the weblink have been sent out by Larry and will be resent several times between now and the meeting, but here they are as well.

Unfortunately, it is not really possible to make this an interactive meeting but we certainly do want to address any and all questions you have. There will be an email address dedicated specifically for your questions which we will then respond to.

 While there aren’t a lot of social functions to discuss, here are a couple of things to keep in mind.

  • We are currently planning on conducting our annual Jr. Sailing Camp, July 27. – 31. Additional information has been provided separately

Camp is limited to 20 participants and they must be members children or grandchildren.

  • Per our Constitution and By-Laws, all boats and trailers must be removed from the LYC parking lot and Point by Friday, July 10th after which time, a $25 per day fine is applicable.

I would like to thank Chef Myron and his staff for providing outstanding food service! Just today, we have hired a new Sous Chef to shore up the staff and we are in the process of revising the menu for the remainder of the Summer. Please send any comments or suggestions to me or Larry. For those of you who may not have been to the Club recently, the comments I have received on the service and the food itself have all been very positive and we are very happy to have Myron leading this talented kitchen.

Of course, as things change with CV-19, we will keep you updated. In the meantime, thanks again for your understanding and support. The last thing the staff likes doing is reminding folks about the requirements, although I will say that when they need to, they do so as graciously as anyone I have encountered during these crazy times.

My family and I wish you all continued good health and happiness and we look forward to seeing you at our wonderful lakefront venue!

I will close with this quote from Elizabeth Edwards:

“She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted the sails.”

 Cheers,

 Rob
