Grounds Committee Report

A big thank you and shout out to Ron Anderson, our grounds/maintenance person for his hard work getting our club ship-shape. He showed his willingness to jump in the deep end of the pool when, for his first time on a sailboat, joined Bob Hickock on Spontaneous Combustion for a very windy Sunday during the Mayor’s Cup Regatta. He got to see firsthand what flying the laundry means!  And he came back!

In addition to keeping up the grounds and shelters, mowing the grass and working with the plumbers to get the septic pump and system repaired and in good order he has also finished the following projects this past month:

  • Replaced the garbage disposal in the upper shelter sink
  • Power-washed the concrete outside of the restrooms
  • Mulched and replaced borders for the flower beds
  • Replaced the exhaust fan in the men’s bathroom
  • Placed non-skid on the steps leading up to the upper shelter
  • Graded the gravel road up the hill

Projects that are upcoming are as follows:

  • Assisting the Harbormaster in getting trailers up to the top of the hill
  • Replacing the counter-top, sinks and faucets in the men’s bathrooms
  • Working with the Harbormaster to replace the roping in the parking lot
  • Removing the log pile along the shore below the upper shelter (this will be relocated to the camping area for use at the firepit)
  • Helping to build flower beds at the lower (camping) shelter
  • Power-washing and painting our sheds and outbuildings
  • Weeding the boat parking areas
  • Assisting the 50th Committee in getting ready for our celebration
  • Continuing to work on dock maintenance

      Ladies’ Sailing Association


Hello Ladies!

For those of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Nan Schulze and I am currently serving as your Vice-Commodore. I sail Dutch Mob, a J-24, and have been very excited to organize this group to provide the ladies of our club some fun of our own!  We have had a small group of women who have helped to get this up and running and I want to invite the rest of you to join us.

You may have seen the fruits of our first order of business this season -our Adopt-a-Flowerbed project.  For their work credits, a number of ladies have been weeding, planting and will be maintaining different areas of the club to bring some beauty to our grounds.  Kate McMillan has been overseeing this project and had done a great job working with these volunteers. We are working on getting some signage out so we can recognize all of the great work these ladies are doing.

We have some fun events planned for the club this summer.  We hope you will join in – they’re not all for ladies only!

  • Saturday, June 8th – Dock-Walk Beginning at 4:00 p.m. we invite you to host an open house at your boat.  We will provide balloons for your boat to identify you as a host.  All club members are invited to come walk the docks and enjoy the hospitality we know these ladies will provide.  This event is in conjunction with the Flying Scot Midwest District Regatta.  (RSVP for your ballons at
