Publicity June 2022

Looking for someone to take over the Publicity Chair position starting next year!   Responsibilities include putting together the Telltales once a month (during the sailing season), sending out emails to the membership, posting pictures on our Instagram account, and keeping the website updated.  I plan on teaching this new Publicity Chair everything they need to know.  I’ll also volunteer to be the assistant chair to help with the work. As with all Chair positions, this person will have their Membership Dues waived. 

Please send an email to publicity@ecsail.org if you’re interested or would like to recommend someone.

Technically the Publicity Chair has control of making all the ECSC merchandise & apparel, too.  But I plan to keep doing that since it’s fun.  So it’s up to whoever comes on board if they want to run the Ship Store, too.

I am in the process of making a lot more softshell jackets (mens and womens style) as well as rash-guards and long-sleeve t-shirts.

My Ship Store inventory now includes (see images below):

  • 1/4 zip sweatshirts (more sizes being ordered).  $25
  • soft shell jackets.   $40
  • t-shirts (plenty of mens and women in stock).  $10
  • NEW can coozies (skinny and traditional).  $1
  • NEW towels. $20
  • NEW burgees. $20
  • NEW tote bags. $15
  • NEW rash guards (dry fit long sleeve shirts).  $15
  • NEW long sleeve t-shirts.  $12

Sizes & colors are limited to what’s in stock.  First come, first served!

LETTER-TO-THE-EDITOR:  Les Miller

In solidarity with certain members of our club, I have ordered lengths of rainbow ribbons that I will fly from my backstay. Anyone else who wants to adorn their sloop with a ribbon can come by my sloop “Turbolino” (slip A10) or the race shed to pick one up. It would be a great showing for the Club to demonstrate its welcoming nature for ALL sailors. Ribbons should arrive in around 14+ days.

I’m still looking for volunteers to help post pictures on our club’s Instagram account. We have a couple members who have stepped up already, but I’d like a team of 4 or so to keep our Instagram account active.

Instagram is more about sharing photos than Facebook is. I’d like to find a small team who can help make more posts on the club’s Instagram account this year.  This can be as easy as snapping photos (with your phone) of various boats sailing on the lake or people hanging out around the club. Ideally, the club account would make about 2-3 new posts a week.  If you are interested in helping with ECSC’s Instagram account, please reach out to publicity@ecsail.org.

2021 board

ECSC Board Candidate Bio’s

** Bio’s are listed in chronological order based on when they were submitted **

Katie DeGrella

Katie DeGrella for Junior Sailing Chair 2022

I am Katie DeGrella and I am running for an ECSC Board Position in 2022. I am a parent of an ECSC Junior Sailor. My daughter, Olivia has raced and worked at the ECSC Sailing Camp for the last three summers. This summer, I coordinated registration for the Sailing Camp. Both programs, Junior Racing and Sailing Camp offer so much to children and teens. I would like to contribute to our club by helping to continue to these awesome program that our members (many junior sailing parents before me) have spent years developing. And, therefore giving more kids an opportunity to benefit. I believe that I could add value to the ECSC by serving as Junior Sailing Chair-person. But, either way, I look forward to assisting to organize and run the sailing camp again for summer of 2022.

“I Wayne Myers,  Jr. Sailing Chair 2021, approve this message……”

Abigail Harlan 

Abigail Harlan, Executive Director at Pack Away Hunger, Inc, is a bilingualcareer non-profit professional. She fell in love with cause-driven work as a ProgramDirector with the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis after graduating from the Universityof Wisconsin-Madison in 2002. She spent nearly four years working for international agencies in Costa Rica and Guatemala before settling in Miami, Florida for over a decade. There she grew into executive leadership with the YMCA of South Florida and later lead national program development and fundraising initiatives for Best Buddies International, an organization that advocates for and empowers people with disabilities. Program development, fundraising, and board management are all things
she enjoys in her career. Abigail is a member of the Rotary Club of Indianapolis, volunteers for Vote Safe Indiana, and is an active board member for the Boys and Girls Club of Boone County. She also fosters dogs for Indianapolis Animal Care Services. Abigail is a Legacy Member at ECSC whose love of sailing began at a young age. She sailed Eagle Creek with her Dad, Chris Harlan, and brother, Mark, through the 80’s before the family moved their boats up to Chicago to cruise the Great Lakes. Eventually her father settled in the Florida Keys; she has sailed the South Florida waters for over twenty years. Abigail has experience sailing international waters throughout Central and South America; her favorite trip to this day was her sail across the Darien Gap from Panama to Colombia in 2014. She currently keeps a Pearson 303 in Cudjoe Key, FL and a Hunter 25.5 at ECSC. Her favorite part about being a member at ECSC is reconnecting with old family friends and sharing the sport with those who have never experienced it. She feels strongly about diversifying the sport and making it more inclusive, which is why she co-chaired the 2021 ECSC Ladies Sail this summer. If elected, she hopes to expand program offerings for all levels and abilities at the club and would like to work with the Junior Sailing Chair to strengthen the scholarship program for youth sailing camps.

Jordan Kane

I Joined Eagle Creek Sailing Club back in 2019 and quickly grew to love the sport of sailing. While still learning every time out, I have been lucky to have some great mentors along the way. You will find me out racing most weeks either on my Precision 21 on Sundays or with the Goff’s on Wednesdays. I served as a board member for the first-time last year and have grown to have a strong appreciation for how the club is run and the effort it takes to host such great events. I hope to bring a new perspective to the board and continue to learn the inner workings of the club. One day I hope to serve as a committee head and make a positive impact for all our members. See you out on the water!

Jennifer Knapp 

Hello everyone, I’m Jen Curtis, member number 63. This year I’m up for re-election on our board, which I’ve enjoyed serving on since November 2012. During that time, there have only been a couple of meetings I haven’t been able to attend (one being due to the birth of our son). Being in a family that has four generations there, I grew up down at the club, and am thrilled that our kids are doing the same! In the past, I’ve served as chairperson of Ship’s Store, served on an insurance committee, have co-hosted/hosted the Hornback Chili Cookoff since 2010, and will be helping our membership chair with data entry for our membership history. There is so much that goes into the functioning of the club and I truly enjoy being a part of it and helping where I can. Our club is a fantastic place where multiple generations can come and bond over our love of sailing and all Eagle Creek has to offer. My goal is to serve so we can have it to enjoy for many generations to come!

 

Nancy Goff 

Nancy has been married to Chuck for 30 years and is in the process of raising four boys from ages 15-26. One of the boys represented our club as a junior sailor for three years.  Nancy has been sailing and a member of ECSC for 6 years. Chuck and Nancy race together on a J22 called Catch 22 and also own a S2 7.9 called Still the One which has traveled to multiple class regattas. They have raced on Lake Huron, Lake Erie, Lake Michigan, and Tampa Bay. Nancy enjoys being creative and active.  Together, Chuck and Nancy enjoy traveling and look forward to bringing both passions of travel and sailing together. Nancy has served on the the board for three years and currently serves as the assistant race chair.

 

Evan Williams

Joined in 1989 and was quickly asked to get involved…I handled Publicity (read that as publishing the Telltales) for around 16 years with a stint of Commodore in there in 2006.  Legacies include moving the Telltales from paper to the website (which Harrington and I started somewhere along the line along with our club Facebook site), setting up the E-Mail communication system, obtaining Parks approval to use the upper field for our trailer parking, and started the process to modernize our club boats (new RC & Rib in 2007).  I’m asking to be on the Board again to help Ki with his initiatives…hoping to be the 9th highest vote total so I have to serve only one year.
