 Let’s all take a look at our dock lines. We’ve had two pretty good storms to start off our season and while only a couple of boats sustained damage it’s always a good idea to make sure that dock lines are the proper size for your boat and aren’t chafed or worn. It also is a good idea to use shackles to secure the lines to the dock or finger piers, carabiners have a history of failure during our storms.  Your boat is a huge investment don’t risk damage with poor dock lines.

Membership continues to grow. The decision to reduce the Initiation Fee by 50% through July 31st has been a great draw. That deadline however is less than two months away so if you have crewmembers who are hesitating about joining now is the time to take action. Pick up the membership form at the Club Office.

New Members from the May Board Meeting

Did you notice that we now have an ATM? The Board approved the purchase of the machine after requests from members, transient boaters and guests. It’s located just to the right of the office door in the Lakeside Lounge. There are two signs indicating its location also.

The Fifth Annual Dinghy Drift is only a month away. Posters are on the Club Bulletin Boards with all the information. 

Security should always be a concern at the Club which is why we always remind you to watch for anyone on the grounds or in the Club House who looks like they don’t ‘belong’. We always want to show off our “Harbor of Hospitality” to any interested member of the public; however on a recent evening an individual, who had no interest in SSYC membership, was discovered in our Club House by a bartender. Because of those concerns the outside Women’s and Men’s outside bathroom doors will be accessible by key card at the same time as the gate becomes secured.

Another note along those lines since we’ve had a large number of new members we should all be aware that there is an AED (automatic emergency defibrillator) and first aid kit in the Club House located in the North hallway at the top of the access ramp.
