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:
Projects that are upcoming are as follows:

Eagle Creek Sailing Club
Ladies’ Sailing Association
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!
If you would like to join us in planning these great events or just want to come have fun
meeting your fellow lady sailors, the next meetings for the Ladies’ Sailing Association are June 17th, July 8th, August 5th and August 26th (all Mondays). We will be keeping touch via the club Facebook page and via email. To get on the list, please contact me !
