We continue to welcome new members to our ECSC family. Matt and Carly Traub (former members and legacies on both sides of the family) are now living in Indy and sailing a J 24. Tony and Lori Portell of Indianapolis sailing a Catalina 25. Christian and Tony Sultzer of Pendleton sailing a Sirius 21’ (Footloose).
There is a New member orientation session scheduled for Sunday May 21st 1:00 pm in the upper shelter house. This is open to all new members and anyone else interested in learning more about the club. Encourage any possible prospective members to attend.
Annual dues and slip fees should all have been postmarked by 2/28/17. As of the evening of 2/28/17, I have deposited 190 checks. So still about 60 outstanding. Hope those are all in the mail with a post mark of 2/28 or earlier.
All ECSC Annual Dues statements were mailed on January 18th. You should have yours by now. Please notify us at email@example.com if you have not received yours.
17 member have sent in their information along with their checks and those checks will be deposited on 1/28/17. Please respond as early as possible so that your forms don’t get lost in the shuffle and so that you receive your 2017 boat & trailer decals as well as your keys in a timely manner. The main gate key - 16 - will remain the same for the next year so only request that key in the event that you need some extras.
Our Harbormasters have included an additional form in the mailing this year which is to be used if you wish to change your slip for the 2017 season. This form should help to make that process go more smoothly. To those of you who did not have a permanent slip, please indicate your desire to have one in 2017 and we will make every effort to make that possible this season. If you are requesting a slip for the first time, please complete a separate check for the slip fee. This check will be held until we are certain that you have been assigned a slip (usually by mid to late March). If by chance you are not assigned a slip, this check will be returned to you uncashed.
Jane and Christy
Welcome to the final new members of 2016 - bringing our new members total to 27.

RAISE IN RATES FOR 2017:
At the December meeting, the board voted to raise the annual fee for all kayaks, canoes and sailboards. In 2017 it will be $25 for rack storage and $100 for inside storage. This will be reflected on the Annual Dues statement which you will receive during the last week of January. If you wish to be on the wait list for indoor storage, pay the rack fee and indicate your desire to be on wait list.
Your individual work credits will be indicated on your Annual Dues statement. If your credits are not what you think they should be, please contact the committee chair under whom you earned your work credits and they will then contact us with the correct number of hours.
The same will be true with the indication on your statement regarding the # of boats you have in winter storage on ECSC property. Kenny Chapman is the contact person if you do not agree with the number indicated.
As always, your check for 2017 dues will need to be postmarked by the due date of 2/28/17.
Annual dues statements will be mailed 1/20/17. If you have not received yours by that first week of February, please call 317-575-9837 with that information.
Please call the same number with any change in mailing and/or email address. Hope to see all of you on the water during the summer of 2017.
