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.
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.
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.
Good Afternoon LLYC,
It has been a while since we have put anything out so wanted to get back on it. This weekend the Officers will be meeting and going over notes and officially handing off the famous brief case to Erik Herrmann. The snow is melting and the temperature is rising so hopefully everyone is getting ready for the upcoming summer. We will be posting dates and schedules here on the web-site once we receive them. I hope everyone is enjoying the remainder of winter and looking forward to the upcoming summer.
With lake levels continuing to drop, the yacht club will be holding races this weekend! Although we will be racing, the Long Lake Improvement Association recommends No Wake on Long Lake. As such, all spectator boats are advised to keep their wakes to a minimum and stay away from shore, particularly in areas that continue to be flooded. More information can be found here.
Due to the unprecedented flooding on the lake, every race for all of our fleets have been cancelled for this weekend. Anyone still needing assistance with the floodwaters is encouraged to ask the LLYC text message thread.
Despite all of this, however, the Sunday beer party is still on, and will be hosted at the Madden's starting at 12 noon.
The MIR is over and we are back to life as usual. We would again like to thank Suzi Reese for allowing us to use her house as the Regatta Headquarters, Bill and Patty Kercher for opening up there home for the Saturday night party and for doing such an amazing job with dinner, Ronie Madden, Jeanie Adolf and Laura Owen-Agase for spearheading the lunches and the google sheet for salads and apps. There are truly to many people to thank but we will be thanking everyone for years to come for making it a great event. Great Judging, Great food, Beer, and just all around Long Lake Hospitality. Moving on this Sunday at the Beer Party we are preparing to start orders for T-shirts and other gear. Wes Mottlau and Lauren Harting are mixing around ideas and will have some displays at the Ringa's home for people to give input and come up with a final product. All the shirts from last year will be available but we are wanting to include performance wear shirts for sailing, different styles of shirts such as women sizes, Tank-tops, V-necks if wanted, Pocket front shirts if wanted, again looking for ideas. We are also throwing around the idea of including Koozies, coffee mugs, jackets and other items. We are also going to unveil the 70th anniversary shirt that is in the process of being made if everyone likes it. Remember that the Ringa's Beer Party is also our Open House so bring a friend.
We will see everyone on the Water
The June Party will take place at the Kercher residence during the MIR on Saturday, June 10, 2017. We will also be serving lunches on Saturday and Sunday.
All meals and parties are included in the entry fee for one skipper and one crew. Kids under 10 are also free. Also, MIR Regatta judges do NOT have to pay for lunches (party not included).
For everyone else, the cost for the party is $15 per person (similar to all our regular parties) and the cost for lunches is $8 per person per lunch (this includes beer!)
You can pay for the party and for lunches by clicking the MIR Regatta Link in the upper right hand corner and clicking on MIR Dinner Pass or Lunch Pass. Your receipt is your ticket, so keep it in a safe place if you pay online.
We have several people from other lakes confirming they will be attending. If any LLYC members are willing to house some of these skippers, please reach out to Wes Mottlau (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can get it all coordinated.
We are also in need of about 5 large water dispensers (the kind they dump over the coach at the Super Bowl). Please let Wes know if you can provide any.
