A WORD FROM OUR OFFICE MANAGER, Laurie Hoffman
Point of Sale (POS) System
In preparation for the installment of our new POS System, I am doing an audit on all membership files, and I am finding some of them completely empty. In the near future I will be asking some members to fill out new applications to put in their files. The application form can be found on our website wycc.co .   Also, if you have moved in the last 2 years, changed your email address, or if your telephone numbers have changed and the office was not notified, please do so at your earliest convenience. 
 
And lastly, please put your member number on all checks coming into the office, even if the checks are coming straight from your bank. 

As always, thanks so much for your time & help. I do appreciate it.

Docks Committee
A Resounding and Hearty Standing Ovation to our Membership
The Docks, Piers & Slips Committee is overwhelmingly grateful to our membership for their generous support of our 1st Annual Spring Dock Building Party. Through donations, T-Shirt sponsors, and T-Shirt sales, we were able to raise 132% more than we were budgeted for this project. That is a testament to what we can accomplish together. 
Our next priority will be procuring safety ladders, throw-able life rings, and fire extinguishers for the docks.

We are also aware that there are many maintenance needs in the sheds, which will be remedied as time and budget allows.

Feel free to reach out to  Dockmaster@wycc.co  with any dockside concerns .

URGENT ATTENTION REQUIRED
If you have a boat, trailer, kayak, canoe, SUP, dinghy on club property, you must return the 2018 Boaters Form by April 30th. Email them to  Dockmaster@wycc.co   Any property at the club that is not listed on a Boaters Form, will be considered abandoned. We will make every reasonable effort to ascertain ownership, and contact that owner. If we cannot ascertain ownership, the items will be sold or auctioned off.
