Executive Chef Mark Sanders
As many of our members may already know the club has recently hired a new executive chef, Mark Sanders. Mark is a local Severna Park-ian who has worked in private clubs for a majority of his professional career. Having worked in yacht clubs, city clubs, country clubs and beach clubs he is well versed in the membership dynamic and I know he is looking forward to meeting the diverse needs of our particular membership.
We will be hosting a Meet the Chef Night in late March to give members the opportunity to meet Mark and taste some of his favorite dishes in a casual cocktail style format. The specific date and time will be outlined in an upcoming Blast so keep your eyes peeled for that information. We hope you will come down, say “hi” and enjoy a taste of Mark’s culinary favorites.
Welcome aboard, Mark, and we hope you have a long and fruitful tenure here at EYC!
Extra Parking Sticker Form
All EYC members will continue to receive a free parking sticker in the mail with their 2018 directory and member card sticker. These items will hit your mailboxes soon. We delayed the mailing this year to attempt to incorporate the new members that recently joined as a result of the increase to the membership cap.
For additional parking stickers the club has instituted a new form for members to fill out to help maintain the value of membership by curbing (sorry about the pun) non-member use of our main parking lot. The forms are available solely from the office and require some basic information about the vehicle so that the stickers can be readily identified in the event of a parking problem. We would like to remind members that additional stickers are non-transferrable and are intended for member use only.
NEW AED for 2018
Automated external defibrillators or AEDs are a critical part of our club’s safety program. We are very excited to announce that we have added a third AED for our members’ and guests’ safety. As I hope many of you have already noticed the club has had a unit located across from the popcorn machine in the bar area to the left of the double doors leading to the deck. The race committee also maintains an AED for use on the water and for their special events. This year we will be adding a third AED that will be located in the first-floor hallway toward the back door.
For those who may not know these units are HIGHLY automated and will “coach/talk” an uninformed person through the whole process of helping a person who has suffered from cardiac arrest. It is also worth noting that these units sense the impulses from the human heart so it is impossible to shock a person who has a normal heartbeat so there is no need to fear this potentiality.
The club will also be hosting some training classes for CPR so those of you who wish to participate are encouraged to do so. The Blast will announce the dates and times for upcoming sessions.
What you do in the event of an emergency is a question that should always be answered BEFORE the time occurs and you are pressed into action. Although we hope something of this nature never occurs at EYC we have plans in place to deal with them.
Located in the office, at the bar and in the junior office are binders that give instructions in dealing with natural disasters, man made threats and many other events. Feel free to request to take a look at the materials the next time you are at the club and we will show you the locations and give you the opportunity to peruse the materials.
