Four legged Friends

We definitely love our furry family members but although EYC is like a home away from home for many of our members it can’t be for our pets. Pets must remain on leashes and be supervised by their owners at all times. Although there are many dog lovers at the club remember not everyone is comfortable with animals so please respect those fellow members. Also, note that the club provides waste removal bags near the waterfront lawn so please always pick up after your pet. We have been noticing an increase in “items left behind” on our lawn and hope our dog owners will take corrective action.

Spring and Summer Reminders

As the active club season is already upon us I thought I would take a moment to remind members of some important club information that will help keep both our members and the club safe.

  • Children are not allowed on the docks unsupervised. Never!
  • Children must have appropriate coast guard certified PFDs when on the docks and accompanied by an adult. Also, please make note of the location of the safety rings and fire extinguishers next time you are in the marina.
  • Alcohol purchased at the club may not be taken off premise or onto the docks or private boats. Members may take their cocktails onto the waterfront lawn or sailing yard however. Conversely members and their guests may consume their own alcoholic beverages (purchased elsewhere) on their boats while docked in the marina but it may not be brought onto club property.
  • There is no such thing as a “to go” cup for alcoholic beverages. All beverages purchased at EYC must be consumed on our licensed property which includes the clubhouse, waterfront lawn and sailing areas. Sorry you can’t walk home with that Mt. Gay and Coke!
  • Did you know that the club has a comprehensive spill kit located right next to the hoist? It contains everything you would need in the event of an oil or gas spill. Items such as emergency phone numbers, oil containment rings and rags, flashlights and gloves etc are all inside. Be ready for when an emergency arises.
  • EYC recycles, and you should too! Note that EYC has both a recycling dumpster and a regular dumpster for waste. Please use the specifically marked trash cans as you dispose of items at the club. Recycling containers are also located near the marina and parking areas in addition to the interior of the clubhouse
  • Help us stay beautiful by being mindful of the club grounds. If you see litter or stray items pick them up and dispose of them properly. The club keeps your dues low by relying on volunteers. We do not employee a grounds or marina maintenance person at the club so our members and other staff are relied upon to keep things looking sharp. Keep us clean and green!

Welcome our New Staff!

As I wrote about in last month’s VFB we are thrilled to have Glenn Looney join our terrific team as the new Assistant General Manager. His extensive experience in clubs will certainly bolster the services to our members and we look forward to his fresh ideas! We are also welcoming back a familiar face. Some of our more tenured members may remember Chef Nik Holm from the old clubhouse. Nik has returned as the club’s sous chef and we are very excited to bring another element to our kitchen. Of course, Nik knows the history of EYC and developed and prepared many of the old favorites which might just make an appearance on our current menus and special boards. Welcome back Nik!

It is also the time of year again when we will double our service staff to keep up with the increased volume of sales during our warmer months. Although we will be welcoming back a couple college students on summer break, we will also be bringing in new staff for the Spring/Summer sailing season. As always, it is a challenge to get these new staff members up to speed in such an abbreviated amount of time but we look forward to meeting that challenge and continually improving the member experience at the club. Please welcome them and as always Glenn and I appreciate your feedback both in the affirmative and negative.

As I am typing this letter I have to say it has been a pretty nice February. Who would have thought we would have 60 and 70-degree weather at this time of the year? Of course, it will probably snow in July but Maryland weather always keeps us on our toes. That being said, March brings us the annual Burning of the Socks celebration on the 19th so perhaps we can optimistically look forward to an early Spring. Come down with socks in hand and let’s make it happen!

The clocks have sprung forward and the EYC Sock Burning is behind us so it must be time to begin ramping up for a new sailing season! As our marina tenants start to come out of hibernation our club’s committees are hard at work planning for our busy Spring and Summer schedule. Whether it be a waterside regatta or a landside party on the lawn the fun really starts to kick in during April.

Our hard-working House Committee in conjunction with Mark Jones, club Keeper of the Log, will begin the month with the popular Rum and Cigar Night on April 1st. Of course, Easter is right around the corner on the 16th and we will offer the perennial sell out Easter Brunch in conjunction with the kids Easter egg hunt on the lawn. Kids of all ages are welcome so reach out and make your reservations early. Due to the high volume of requests for the Easter brunch, reservations require a credit card but may be cancelled up to 72 hours prior to the event without penalty.

Lobster Night

If you didn’t get the opportunity to join in January for our ever popular Lobster night don’t worry because we will have a full month of Saturday night lobsters in February. You must call in advance to reserve your lobster and don’t forget to make a reservation to reserve your table as well. Note that these are separate reservations so please alert the staff member who is helping you that you would like both if that is your intention. All dates still have availability but very frequently sell out so act quickly!
