Greetings LPYC Members,

We are hopeful that you as you read this Newsletter that you have had a chance to come in to enjoy all the club has to offer this year.  Information on upcoming events is posted near the doorways as well as in the restrooms and near the bar.  You can always check out the website and Facebook page to keep up to date.  If you need help updating your contact information just let us know.  We’d be happy to link you up with the LPYC App and ability to receive e-blasts for upcoming events.

The Parrot Head Club will be having their membership drive party at the club again this year.  Their party is scheduled for Saturday, June 2nd.  Gates open at 5:30.  Cost for the event is $10 – but FREE for LPYC members.  Please remember to have your membership card available to show at the gate to get in free.

Attached you will find our LPYC Code of Conduct.  We ask that you take some time to read through this document.  If you have any questions regarding the Code of Conduct, please feel free to contact any board member.  Please remember that if you see something, to say something.  We can only improve our club if we are made aware of an issue.

Drink tokens are back!  Want to buy someone a drink but they aren’t ready or they are heading out the door?  You can purchase a drink token for them to save and redeem when they are ready.  There are three token purchase options.  Ask your servers for more information.

Your new board has been working in and around the club.  If you have a specific interest or desire to help out, just let one of the board members know.  We are always looking for members to join a committee or just help out around the club.  It’s a great way to meet new friends.

The correct procedure to enter the harbor is from downstream. This serves two purposes.  The first being that any vessel exiting the harbor can see incoming vessels approaching, existing vessel has the right of way.  When entering the harbor it is advised to pilot past the harbor thereby giving a clear view to any boat exiting the harbor and also, saving you from riding your own wake into the harbor.  It is advised to travel downriver near the Illinois side of the river, crossing after the end of the harbor and then slowly entering the harbor with a clear view of any traffic downriver of the entrance of the harbor.

The Commodore’s Brunch will be held Sunday, June 10th.  Festivities begin at 11 am.  Brunch will be served at 11:30.  Cost for this event is $25.00 and reservations are required.  Are you new to the club and don’t know what the Commodore’s Brunch is?  Ask a current member for details.  This annual event involves a raffle for member donated prizes.  There will be free mimosas, screwdrivers, bloody marys and a keg of beer – while they last.  This is a day to meet up with old friends, meet new friends and enjoy a party on the patio.

Huge SHOUT OUT to Chris & Rheta Foley for once again organizing their Foley Kentucky Derby Party.  A good time was had by all!    Thanks to Joan Clements and Sarah Gilhofer for filling our flower pots with beautiful flowers!  Thanks ladies.  Dave Cunningham and Louis Mayfield once again hosted the Kid’s Fishing Derby.  I’m not sure if the kids or adults had more fun!  Much appreciated guys.

We want LPYC to be the place where you want to be!

Christy Ellenberg, Commodore

and your LPYC Board.

We have scheduled a “Member Meeting” for Sunday, April 29th at 12 pm.  We will update members with decisions that have been made, accept comments, concerns and listen to suggestions.

The Social Committee will be meeting April 7th at 1 pm at the club.  If you are interested in joining this committee, please contact Gwen Tombergs.

Your new board is ready to get to work.  We are asking members to step up to help out.  This is your club.  If you have not been asked to join a committee or help out, please contact any one of the board members.  Your time, talent and input is greatly needed and appreciated.

We want LPYC to be the place where you want to be!
