Well, the clubhouse has quieted and many have departed but the EYC is seeing some action.  The ladies are playing Bridge and there are still some boats on the dock.

We had an opportunity with Olivia Demarinis to have a staff member available to keep the place in order and be on call for members.  We have one Club F/S and one FJ available on shore stations for club members as long as they can work it out with Olivia.  You must be confident to take a boat out by yourself and please be prepared as winds this time of year can be eratic.  You may not take a club boat out without her approval and the club safety boat is only for her or emergency use.

If you need something at the club or want to take a boat out call Olivia at 920-421-1662.

Although we will shut everything but the clubhouse down after Labor Day, we will leave the hoists up until the usual time for private boats.

Thank you to everyone for a fantastic season, we will all be busy in the off-season preparing for 2009 and the FS NAC’s!

Once again an Ephraim Regatta takes place because “There will always be an Ephraim Regatta” and once again we are honored to have the Kleins and Claypools hosting us for the Annual Bratfest.  One quick Reminder, the Bratfest is a family event and all are welcome, but we ask that all children and teens be accompanied by parents or adults.  Please do not drop your kids off and pick them up after the event.  We also ask that you drink responsibly and be safe, don’t forget racing starts at 10am on Sunday morning!
