Weekend Updates

Hello LLYC!!

Congratulations to Joe Popeck and Maceo Ringa for a fantastic showing at Beulah this week! They both cracked top 10 finishes. Joe matched his best race with back to back 3rds, and Maceo got a 5th!

This weekend is the June Party at Pistakee. Please RSVP to Jen Sundberg (630)-251-3817 if you haven’t already.

Also, the 4th of July is around the corner, and Morgan can use all the donations he can get. If you prefer to send him a check, he would prefer the check this week because he is shopping for the fireworks on Monday. Please have your money ready by the Sunday beer party at the latest. Handing him a check at the 4th of July beer party will not do him any good. The more you send, the better the show!

Have a great week, and see you out on the water!

LLYC Updates

Hello LLYC!

After a week off of sailing, there are a few friendly reminders. The races this weekend do count even though the C trophy is the Kercher-Stay-At-Home. The Kercher-Stay-At-Home is registered as a counted race this year. There is also NO Beer Party this weekend. 

Morgan is also preparing for his annual 4th of July firework show! Last year we had $5,000 worth of donations which made the show amazing! The more you donate, the better the show. You can donate to Morgan via check, cash, or Venmo. Please see…

Happy Friday LLYC!

So great to be back to the summer/sailing season! I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We didn’t have any sailing on Sunday, but the beer party made up for the lack of wind. Thank you to the Popeck’s, Becker’s, Mottlau’s, and Ron Gurak for throwing such a great party! The next beer party will be at The Wiener’s with Pitts, Damien, Gilleland, and Ripley. 

I would like to thank Jennifer Sundberg and The Johnson’s who helped organize the June Party this year. Attached is all the details to the party. The party is on Saturday, June 29th. The cost of the party is $35 and that includes salad, all you can eat wood fire pizza, a…

Website Updated for the 2019 Season

The website should be updated for the season with a new standings sheet for both the MC and C fleets. Additionally, the website now contains a list of upcoming beer parties, yacht club events, and regattas under our calendar tab. If any information is missing or inaccurate, please feel free to contact webmaster@llyc.us and I’ll be able to fix it pretty quick.

A Message from the Commodore

Greetings All LLYC Members,

It's almost unbelievable how quickly our sailing season and summer has "blown" by!  This Labor Day weekend is our last weekend for Long Lake sailing and regularly scheduled LLYC activities. Another season for the great LLYC!

The 2018 year has certainly been a busy one for us all.

Following the Trophy Banquet, we lost our lost our beloved Norman Reese but were blessed with two new little ones as well as new C and Junior members. Kerchers rang in the holiday season for us with a LLYC party filled with fun and plenty of goodies. Our Dues Committee recommended adjusting the annual membership dues and the club voted with an official ballot to move forward with the changes.  The bylaws were officially changed and…

First Weekend in the Books

The wind did not cooperate as well as we liked for the MC Fleet but we were able to get the C Fleet out there.  The officers would like to thank the Popeck family again for hosting the Memorial Day kick off.   A reminder to all members that the LLISA clean up day is this Saturday so the racing schedule has been pushed to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate.  If you have any questions regarding the clean up please contact Joe Popeck, his number is in the year book.  On that note, the year books were passed out and they look amazing.  Thank you to Bob Schroeder and his team for a fantastic job.  If you are on the lake watching sailing please take pictures and get them to us so we can get them posted on facebook.  Look forward to another great weekend.  

Spring Meeting and Paying Dues

Spring Meeting and Paying Dues

Good Afternoon LLYC and Happy Friday the 13th.  A reminder we are 1 week away from the Spring Meeting.  Everyone should be checking their mail for the schedule and your dues sheet.  Remember you can pay your dues online through the web-site.  Simply add your membership, a boat registration if it applies and a donation if you choose too.  The weather has been up and down but I know we are all looking forward to Memorial Day weekend where we all hope it will be sunny and windy.  Again hope to see a good turn out at the spring meeting and looking forward to another great summer.

Spring Meeting

Good Morning LLYC,

Just an update from the Officers of the club about the spring meeting.  The spring meeting will be held on April 22, 2018 at Nancy Schroeder's house.  The C and MC skippers meeting will be held at 1:00pm and the general meeting will be held at 2:00pm.  We look forward to having max participation to get together and vote on all matters pertaining to the yacht club.  The officers would also like everyone to keep an eye out in the mail before the spring meeting for matters that will be voted on and will require you to mail it back.  I hope everyone is enjoying these last dog days of winter and look forward to another amazing sailing season.
