The Lavon Yacht Club Newsletter 2017-02-18 Edition
|THANK YOU – for all the help
Howdee Folks. Dave Christensen your Commodore here! We are coming up on a new season. Your board has worked out the calendar for the new year. Our volunteer dock cleanup takes place only a couple weeks away. More details on that are below but I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for a great last year. We had some fantastic participation with floats, and great events last year. We can’t thank you enough for helping keep the club running and fun! Our officers last year were Tom Johnson on racing, Kenny Dykes, Dana Sprouse, Chris Coleman, Marlisa Carver, Sandy and Mike Wilkinson as treasurer. This year we welcome Greg Carver, Kelly Hanger and Peter Doncaster along with Kenny, Tom, Dave and Mike returning. Last year Leigh Edwards stepped in and helped with events and is on the help list this year as well. I hope I didn’t forget anyone.
|NEXT EVENT – Dock Clean up and inventory March 4th 11 am
The annual first event of getting to the dock, getting it cleaned up and taking inventory for the new season is right around the corner. Please plan on coming out if you can to help make notes of what we need for the upcoming season, while we do a spring scrub down of the dock. We will start at 11 am and we can usually knock it out within a reasonable amount of time so we will end up with some free time after for sailing or just hanging out. It’s also a good time if you have some things to do with your boat that you might need an extra set of hands as we’re always glad to help.
|NEWSLETTER – Format
You notice a slightly different look for the newsletter. It’s simple and clean but also because the editor I used last year I will not be used so a new format or editor has not been determined. It may turn out this simple clean format with plenty of room may work out well but I guess we will see. It is just in a plain word format. Distribution – You will see a new member e-mail soon when it is constructed. The is sent on the one we have used for some time but not everyone gets it into their inbox so we will have a mailsquick distribution e-mail we can use for newsletters.
|SAVE THE DATE – March 10th Happy Hour 6pm
LYC will have its first Happy Hour get together at Love and War in Plano. It’s at the corner of 75 and Plano Pkwy North east corner.
|SAVE THE DATE – March 18th LYC Chili Cookoff
Get your chili ideas ready for the Chili Cookoff. Expect more details to come as it gets closer. The last winners are pictured here but we get out about 4 or so to get set up and ready for the chili eating.
