ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS
WORK PARTY – SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 at 9:00 a.m.
We’ll need people Saturday morning for yard cleanup.
Mike Laaper will have his large trailer there to haul away debris.
Members are asked to bring pruners or other tools to cut bushes and wood.
The work will consist of the following:
- Cutting and loading knotweed, vines and trees on the inside of the fence in the northwest corner;
- Cutting and loading growth along the shore-side of the lawn, upriver of the crib wall;
- Loading branches that are piled on the lawn;
- Cutting and loading some tree trunks left by the flood; and
- Loading rotten blocking, horses, skids, lumber, tarps, etc., and other debris around the yard.
The work should take only an hour or so.
Last weekend invoices were emailed to members for 2019 Membership Dues and where applicable boat storage fees. Please note payment in full is due on or before October 1, 2018.
A reminder to lift group members, as per the Club’s Yard Rules membership dues and storage fees must be paid and proof of insurance shown to your Lift Captain prior to the lift.
Thank you for your consideration.
Celebration of Richard Archer’s Life
Dear FYC Members,
Hopefully everyone saw the invitation from Susan Shaw to a Celebration of Richard Archer’s Life to be held in Douglas Harbor this coming Saturday (September 22). I just wanted to share a few more details.
The celebration will begin following the race (approximately 1530 – 1600 hrs). The meal will be a Pot Luck with BBQ’d hot dogs and hamburgers supplied by the club. Whatever you can contribute would be appreciated.
As well as Susan’s and Richard’s families and all FYC members, invitations have been extended to Richard’s mountain biking, rock climbing and skiing friends. In order to accommodate everyone In the event of bad weather, we will have both the new dinghy storage building and the clubhouse available.
A bonfire and sing-a-long is planned for the evening. All musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments. In the event of rain we’ll set the bonfire pit up by the entrance to the dinghy storage building and take shelter inside.
Please bring your own lawn chairs as we will not have enough in the clubhouse to accommodate everyone. Thanks
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Hoping to see as many members as possible come out in honor of Richard!
David West, Commodore
