Another memorable Perry Yacht Club year in the books

Branched Creek is frozen the holiday parties are over and it’s time to start preparing for spring and the upcoming sailing season. Your PYC Board and fellow members are busy planning and getting ready in anticipation of the new year and I hope you are too.  We have some exciting social, racing and membership events in 2018 you won’t want to miss so go to www.perryyachtclub.com and save the dates.  Here are a few to get you started:

            Jan 18 - 21; Kansas City Boat Show (sign-ups & Q’s contact Vice Commodore, Steve Murphy)

            Jan 20; the 1st Winter Race Meeting

            March 10; Spring Membership Meeting

            April 14; Club Opening

 

As we start this exciting year of sailing I want to thank each of you for your continued support in making Perry Yacht Club a special place for sailors over our rich 47-year history.

           

Membership Renewal emails have been sent and yes, we are digital!  You will find a more user-friendly process that populates information, calculates your annual membership fees and allows you to pay with a credit card online.  We also have a new data base that includes past, current, future members and links to an inventory of all boats, trailers, cradles and property at the club.  With growing membership and limited space, starting this year we will have marked and assigned dry sail storage spots the same as slips in the water. 

 

If you have any questions or difficulty please contact our Assistant Treasurer, Lisa Hockenberg.  As always you will have to send proof of insurance that also lists “Perry Yacht Club as an Additional Insured”.  Note: Renewing Members who do not pay their membership fees by March 15 will be become “Lapsed Members”, will be referred to the Membership Committee before reinstatement and will be assessed a $150 late fee.

 

PYC’s Typical Annual Budget is around $225,000

Typical Annual Revenue Sources:

-        74% Slip Fees

-        18% Dry Sail Fees

-        8% Storage Fees

 

 

Typical Annual Expenses:

-        51% COE Lease, Taxes, Insurance

-        19% Property Management / Wages

-        15% Property Maintenance

-        15% Activities & Social Programs

 

Ice & Bubblers; Don’t forget your boat if it’s in the water or exposed to the elements.  Come out to the club and pay it a visit. Winter conditions can be harsh on our sailing toys especially if they are in the water.  Have you seen the ice pictures?  Already this winter we’ve had storms blow sails loose, break dock lines and even had a couple of boat owners who found a few feet of water inside their boats.  Do yourself a favor come out and check on your property, make sure your bubblers are working, ice isn’t building up where it shouldn’t and things are ship shape so that you don’t find your boat at the bottom of the slip at Club Opening.

Your Board of Governors are busy preparing budgets and scheduling events for the upcoming season.  I want to thank all them for their dedication, their countless volunteer hours and the work they are doing.  There have been dozens of meetings since Club Closing and I am excited about what we will be rolling out for this coming year.

 

I encourage everyone to reach out to your Board Members and get involved in the committees that are important to you to shape your yacht club and plan for the upcoming year including activities for Social, Racing, Sail Education, Sailing Sister, Youth Sailing, Harbor Improvements, Buildings and Grounds Improvements and much more.  As always, the Perry Yacht Club website and Facebook pages are the best place to find all the latest info. We encourage you to get involved and let your voice be heard.
