The recent warm weather has gotten me very excited about the upcoming sailing season! I love seeing the club come alive with activity of everyone g preparing their boats for launch, hanging at the race shed sharing stories and relishing in each others company. There is no better way to build camaraderie then through social activities. I am currently seeking volunteers to host Memorial Day, Labor Day, Chili Cook Off, and the Final Bash. If you are interested taking the Host position on any of these events, please give me a call or email. Vgreenough21@gmail.com or 317-847-7400. When you host an ECSC Social event you win many times over: You earn work credits towards next years dues, you get to volunteer and help make ECSC the best Sailing-Social Club on the planet, you meet new club members, and did I mention that you earn WORK CREDITS.

As we close out our 2016 year, we have much to celebrate and be thankful for. We had very successful events this past summer and a big shout out to Nick Mates for a well-planned and implemented Final Bash! The mild weather allowed for several to enjoy sailing to Rick’s and enjoy the balcony and great view! I am already working on the 2017 calendar and look forward to some “repeat offenders” of Hosts and Hostesses! Please let me know if you wish to take on the responsibility again for the upcoming sailing season….it will be here before you know it! I will be looking for assistance in the spring to clean, paint, and organize the kitchen and social shed. This is another great way to earn your work credit!
We had a great social season this year. As always, our members stepped up and volunteered as hosts and crew. We really appreciate your efforts.
