House News from Gail Getty & Crew: 

The youth room has been given a fresh coat of paint, received some "new" furniture, and has a new HEAD ping pong table.  We hope your children will enjoy all of these improvements and take good care of them too.  The volleyball net is up-looks great to see it again.  The volleyballs and a new Corn Hole game are all being kept just inside the lower level door. Anyone is welcome to use it. A giant Jenga game is in the youth room too-play a game or two with your friends or family between races or waiting for the dinner bell!

P.S. from Sarah Nill, mamma to 3 boys!  ~ In order to show the house crew and membership our sincere appreciation for the new room and games, I have shared these tips with my children & guests and perhaps you could too:

When finished playing with games at our club you have 2 choices:  
1) Put everything away where it belongs as neatly as you can.
2) Hand the item to someone who is waiting, and tell them the rule - that they must choose 1 or 2 when they are done.

Hopefully this will help the children to understand that no sports equipment, toys or games should ever be "abandoned".

Other things to discuss with kids before your next visit:
Use all club belongings for their intended use (do not kick a volleyball or hang on the volleyball net) .
Look around before you walk out of a room and take what you brought in such as drink cups etc.

Several people have discovered our new Coffee Klatch open on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Baked goods, hard boiled eggs and juice are offered with the specialty coffees from 8:30-11:00.  Sara and David will be offering some vegan selections this week at lunch.  

 According to our operating procedures, children under 12 must be supervised by an adult while at the club.  
 Dogs need to be on a leash.  
 The restrooms on the lower level have dehumidifiers running in them, so please keep the doors closed.

Sue Campbell, Cheer Chair

In addition to redecorating and painting and organizing newly purchased games, our decorating fairies have been hard at work.  The m ason jars have been newly enhanced to be more nautical and can be used for votives, flowers, stones or decor of choice.

Alice Kemp will be leading yoga during our 3 day class.  Alice will help strengthen the body, mind, and spirit in an hour each morning.   Alice has been practicing yoga since 2006.  After just one class she was hooked on that strong, cleansing healthy feeling! Alice believes that by combining the body, mind and spirit it then brings health and healing to an even greater dimension.  Alice believes in a holistic approach to health and wellness through diet, exercise, and an optimistic outlook toward life.  By using modifications and having the ability to customize a practice to specific needs, Alice is always excited for the opportunity to share her love of yoga with anyone and everyone

SAILING NEWS from Joni Palmer

Lots of folks showed up at the club this weekend for the Flying Scot and Laser races.  Unfortunately the wind was too light on Saturday and there were too many thunderstorms on Sunday.  Though no races were completed over the weekend, all sailors enjoyed great camaraderie and fabulous lunch at the club.  It was exciting to see new sailors getting out on the water this weekend... the Latimers sailed with Rob Gerlach, George  Abramowitz with Larry Anderson, Caleb and Sarah Buczynski with Ray & Joni respectively.  And it was great to have Joan & Lee Coroar's young grandchildren, Claira & Detrich on their boat and hear peals of laughter when an impromptu water battle started up with other Flying Scots!  
Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers who were running the races:  
Saturday:  Tom Wolfe, Ned Halloway, and Geri Mehan on the RC boat with Tom Craven and Anthony Celo as safety patrol
Sunday: Mark Schaefer and Rob Gerlach on RC boat with Ralph Kemp and Jake Nill as safety patrol.

There are a lot of skippers with boats that are looking for crews every weekend.  Please subscribe to the Deep Creek Lake racing Google groups if interested in crewing, looking for a crew, help on the RC boat or assist on the safety patrol boat. 


Hope to see everyone out on the water next weekend learning, racing, or engaged in fun water games!

If you have news to share,
