EYC Thank Yous

Monday, October 15th, 2012

The EYC gets a lot of help and donations from members and friends.  Here are some of the latest ones:

Thanks to Paul Pillat, who donated a Flying Scot main, jib and spinnaker which the EYC can use for lessons and daysailing.

Thanks to Rob Comstock, who is using his professional signmaking skills to make a new sign for the EYC.

Thanks to Bob Klein, who is using his metalworking skills to shorten two of the EYC’s Flying Scot rudders down to current dimensions.

Thanks to Dick Filippini, who donated quite a few items:  two Sunfish, a trailer, some Sunfish parts, a kayak, and a windsurfer.  The EYC has sold these items to raise funds.

Thanks to these EYC members, parents and friends who took time out of their beautiful Fall Fest weekend to help flip over the EYC’s Flying Scot “Scot Free” so that it can be painted:  Mike Callahan, Mike Faugust, John Hogan, Bill Lehman, Fred Lewis, Mike Lisle, Jay Lott, Jim Nelson, Sam Perlman, and David Sauter.

Thanks again to Mike Callahan, who is painting the Scot Free to make it look better than new!

The EYC could still use a few more volunteers to flip over a Flying Scot at 4:00 PM on Saturday, October 13 at Port Storage in Jacksonport.

The project will take only about ten minutes.

If you can be there, please RSVP to dockside@eyc.org

Port Storage is located at 6103 Cave Point Drive.  From downtown Jacksonport, go south on Hwy 57 about 1/2 mile.  Just after Hwy. 57 goes right and starts to go uphill, turn left on Cave Point Drive.  Port Storage is about a 1/4 mile south on your right.
