To all our New BYC Applicants:
Our “Experience Summer 2013” Membership Special continues! And believe me, you are keeping us hopping processing your memberships as new applications continue to come in!
A special thanks to those of you who took part on Sunday in our semiannual “Club Scrub”. You will find the Club Scrub a great way to get to know other members.
I hope you can all be with us on Friday, April 19, for our traditional Fridays@5, as we welcome our newest members. As a rule Fridays@5s are held in the club lounge on the first and third Fridays of each month, where you will have the opportunity to meet and chat with other BYC members in a totally informal setting.
On Saturday April 20 you can help support Youth Sailing by boarding the windjammer Zodiac for a fundraising cruise around the bay; pass the word to family and friends. Click here for more information about the cruise or here to sign up. And on Sunday April 21, we have the bus to Emerald Downs to “See the Ponies Run”, part of our Derby Days celebration culminating with Opening Day of the boating season on May 4. Sign up for the bus at the club.
You can find out about all these events and more in the Jib Sheet, the BYC’s weekly newsletter; today’s edition is attached below. Also be sure to check out our WebSite at byc.org for more information. You are welcome to join us as guests for most any or all of the festivities. Contact information is usually included with the article, so you can just call or email and identify yourself as a new applicant to inquire or sign-up. Also feel free to contact me and I will try to answer questions or point you in the right direction.
Since I have already had some questions, I want to remind you all that BYC membership requires review and approval of your application by the club’s Board of Trustees. Full member privileges, especially those involving privacy and security issues such as after-hours access to the club facility or access to the members-only website, cannot be extended before the Board meets on April 18. Please be patient.
In the meantime, let’s start having fun! Call any time with questions, and we all look forward to seeing you at the club!
