Welcome to PYC’s forty-fifth year of sailing in Kansas. As this is my first official note to the club as Commodore, I wanted to thank you for your support and let you know what your Board of Governors are planning for the upcoming sailing season. First and most importantly, 2016 membership packets are in the mail. Please note that unlike previous years, there is no need to submit a deposit, rather full payment is due on March 1. Second, PYC’s winter meeting is Saturday March 5, 2016 at the Shawnee Civic Centre at 12:00pm. Please make sure to RSVP at PYCnews.com. During the meeting, Rear Commodore Bill Mender will present the 2016 racing calendar, which will provide significant opportunities for sailors of all skill levels to get involved in the racing program. Remember, a great way to improve sailing skills is to race, or even crew. In addition to racing, Social Chairperson Donna Massey will present the club’s social calendar for 2016. Donna and the members of PYC did a fantastic job with the parties in 2015, so I am sure 2016 will not disappoint. In addition to these important items, the Board of Governors will review the various projects and actions for 2016. If you cannot make it to the Winter meeting, PYC opening day is Saturday April 16, 2016. Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions or issues.
All Best wishes,
Sean N. Kalic
