I hope this short note finds everyone in the Miamogue family healthy and safe in these unprecedented times. We are probably the most diverse club just about anywhere and we should all be proud of our membership and the comradery we express everyday!
We are hoping to be fully open by June 20th as long as our governor doesn’t move the goal posts once again. Gasoline and ice are available most days but you do need to contact Cassidy beforehand at 203-414-6031.
We will be having a board meeting on the 16th followed by a general body meeting on June 23rd. I ask that all who attend the general body meeting to use common sense regarding social distancing and of course wear a mask out of respect for your fellow members.
I hope and pray that this virus and the protesting ends soon and safely so we can all get back to some sense of normalcy. Stay Well!
The next General Body meeting will be held June 23rd at 7pm
Until the club is fully open copies of new member applications will be posted in the smoking room. Please take the time to review these applications.

Yup, still here in my new home office. I think I’m starting to get used to it. Bonus for me – I have a top floor, corner office with a beautiful view. The trees and flowers are in full bloom. Like most of you, we’ve started work on the boat to get it ready for the summer season (and by “we” I mean my poor husband). No matter who is doing the work, we are all looking forward to having the boats in the water. It’s been a long winter.
As we move through spring, we will again be celebrating the academic achievements of our MYC children. If you know of any kids graduating this year, (college, high school, middle, etc…) please let me know so we can wish them congratulations. There has been so much these kids have had to sacrifice this year. Highlighting their achievements is a small way of letting them know we care.
To the Class of 2020, We Salute You!!

Important Yard Information. All trailers that are stored at the club will be positioned in an orderly fashion in the NEW LOT. Names must be clearly visible or owners will be fined. Please check your trailer in the next two weeks. We are planning a walk through on June 15. The rest of the boat storage area will be completely cleaned up at the end of June. We are not a storage facility. All blocks and stands, as well as frames, must be removed from the property. Any items left in the yard will be disposed of accordingly. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. THE YARD COMMITTEE
From the Dockmaster

Only slip holders that have not changed their slip in the past year are eligible to sigh up fro a slip change.

From the Yard Committee: Happy Halloween to all members, however this is not only Halloween but the official end of the boating season. Please prepare your paperwork and your boats for the end of season haul. Remember the weather will change quickly and the water in the yard will be turned off accordingly. We have many new members hauling this year and are expecting a large haul. We have limited space and this is a first come first served operation. As always last out is first in and if you are not prepared to launch in the spring you will be repositioned at your expense. Please be reminded there is no POWERWASHING allowed in the yard. Please plan accordingly. As always, thank you for your cooperation.
The Yard Committee From the yard. Please remember that this is a very busy season in the yard. We are hauling very large boats In some very tight areas using some very large equipment . Please be reminded to park your vehicles so they will not impact the haul. Please remind your guests of the situation as well and if you think there might be an issue please leave your keys on the floor of your vehicle so we may move it. The Yard Committee
IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON HAULING AND STORING YOUR BOAT IN THE YARD, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RULES AND GUIDELINES. We have had an unusually large number of requests about storage this year and I wanted to get this out in order to answer many of the questions that are being asked about winter storage. Storage is basically on a first come first serve basis for SLIP HOLDERS. The Yardmaster or committee member will position all boats and trailers in the yard, not the hauler or boat owner. You must fill out a HAUL FORM prior to the haul and COMMUNICATE with the yardmaster or committee member. Failure to do so will result in a fine of 250.00$,per the yard rules. Yard rule 12 states that there is one boat and or one trailer per member for those of you with more than that number. If all of the slip holders requested storage we would not be able to accommodate everyone so I suggest the owners with the larger boats begin to consider hauling NOW. We need to haul larger boats first and the fill in with the trailer boats. Also remember that the water in the yard will be left on as long as the weather permits, as we all know that can change quickly here. So in closing the advantages of an early haul are an assured location in the yard, access to water, and better weather to wrap and winterize. Please treat the yard as if it were your own because it is. All boats should be free and clear of any debris stored under the boat. Thank you, The Yard Committee
