2016 Commodores Cup News
We don't have to remind you that Perry Yacht Club is a GREAT group of people, but remember our members are also potential customers, referrals and local connections for your business! Many of us think of the club as a weekend home away from home, a welcome respite from every day cares and responsibilities. We are enthusiastic about continuing the tradition of sailing on with the new generation of sailors. Perry Lake has earned a reputation as the best place to sail in the region, and you are part of the reason!
Commodore's Corner - June 27, 2016
June 27, 2016
Summer is finally here and the high water has retreated. The club’s grounds look good and there has been plenty of activity. I recently had the pleasure of showing the club to a couple that is moving to Omaha. They have a Catalina 32 and are in the process of looking for a yacht club to join. They found several clubs between South Dakota and Kansas and spent the weekend visiting the various clubs they selected through websites and other research. They visited PYC on Sunday and spent about two hours walking the grounds and talking to various members as I gave them the full tour and answered all their questions. Simply, they were impressed with our facilities and the various programs: youth sailing, racing, sailing sisters, and the social events. One of the great benefits of being Commodore is being able to showcase our club and all we have to offer. Thanks to all the hard work of our members, it is easy to get people interested in our club. As we move into the holiday weekend, please remember that we are all ambassadors of our sport and our club, keep up the great work and let’s keep working on building the strong reputation of our club.
As we get close to the July 4th weekend, I wanted to highlight a few events and remind members of a few regulations that directly apply to Independence Day. As far as events, we welcome all sailors to participate in the Firecracker Regatta on Saturday and Sunday. Registration is $25.00 and includes admission to the party on Saturday evening with a DJ and Beer. Racing will be open to all classes with three races on Saturday and two races on Sunday. Please RSVP to Kenny Gall on PYC’s facebook or website page to confirm intent to race. Registration is Saturday morning.
Next, not to ruin the spirit of the fourth, but we all need to remember that fireworks of any kind are strictly PROHIBITED at Perry Lake and Perry Yacht Club. Below are rules and regulations from the Corp regarding fireworks. According to the Corps these will be strictly enforced.
