From Ships Store –

Hello ECSC Members, I have been elected to the Board of Directors and have accepted (read – arm twisted) heading up the Ship’s Store.  I need to learn more about its current operations (my predecessor is giving me good info) before making changes to its operation; nevertheless, Larry has talked to me about the possibility of our outsourcing the process as many other sailing clubs do.  Nothing is confirmed; I need to do some more exploring.  Keep your eyes on this bat channel. If anyone has thoughts for the Store feel free to email me – lmilleriyps@gmail.com or talk to me at the club.  For those of you that don’t know me, I first sailed on a family owned Penguin (11’ wooden boat) around 10 years old. After that, I sailed a Hobie 16’, Jim Lloyd’s Racy Lady (I witnessed the wooden mast breaking that is still celebrated with our club’s broken mast award.) and several larger boats on Lake Michigan. This my second year with the club; I appreciate the way everyone (except Kenny, of course …haha) has made my wife, Amy, and me feel right at home.
