Hi everyone! I recently updated our website to include a “Leadership” page so everyone can see who is in charge of each committee.  You will also find the current Board Members serving our wonderful club. ECSC Leadership: www.ecsail.org/leadership My next goal is to update our records of previous regatta and award winners. Below is a list of  the different regattas we host and the awards we give out at the end of each year. The website has a few different pages right now with old records of these winners, but my goal is to make a nice & neat, one-stop-shop to see all the previous winners.  We have to give credit to all the hard work put into each award! Boat of the Year Rick Ahrbecker Sailor of the Year Sportsman Award Mayors Cup Regatta Governors Cup Regatta Indy 200 Laser Regatta Flying Scott Regatta ECSC Regatta (with Beach Party) Hornback Regatta Wednesday Night Series – Spring, Summer, Fall Sunday Series – Spring, Summer, Fall Also, I made an Instagram account for our club (see below link and handle).  I’m hoping to post regularly on here with good photos from around the club.  I’d be happy to post your photos, too, if you send them to me at publicity@ecsail.org.  The two changing pictures on the front page of our website are actually random posts from this Instagram account.  So sending me photos could get them onto the front page of our website! @eaglecreeksailingclub www.instagram.com/eaglecreeksailingclub Hope to see everyone out on the water soon enough!

Publicity April 2020

Hello everyone, Unfortunately there is not much to report from Publicity either. I could mention some of the boring updates I plan to do to the website, but I’ll spare you that one! Instead, I thought I would share the below sailing documentary about a small-town kid from Seymour, IN, who made some money, bought a boat, and decided to sail around the world for a few years. I highly recommend it as a nice sailing supplement until we can get our normal season back underway.   It’s quite an inspirational film for the adventurous sailor. This documentary is about Alex Rust and his sailboat: Bubbles. Link: http://www.chasingbubblesmovie.com/chasing-bubbles/

Hello everyone, As the club’s master-of-emails, you get to hear from me plenty.  So I’ll keep it short and sweet. I still plan to do an update of our ecsail.org website.  Specifically, getting a well-formatted and more descriptive “About” page, make a very good-looking landing page, and then hopefully clean up all the different links and sections of the website that may seem confusing. The Calendar page now has the 2020 events. So feel free to reference this and let me know if there’s anything that needs to be added. www.ecsail.org/events/ Share your favorite 2019 sailing pic on our facebook page.  There’s no better way to get excited for the 2020 sailing season!  I’ll grab the best photos and put them in next month’s newsletter. And unrelated to publicity: the Purdue Sailing Team has asked me to be their coach, so I’ll likely be at the club most weekends in the Spring with the 10-15 students they bring down.  This team is impressively active, coming down from Purdue both Saturday and Sunday most weekends.  They’re even having their first practice this Sunday, March 8th. Don’t be shy if you see them at the club or on the water. EJ Williams, Publicity Chair   LETTER TO THE EDITOR – JANET HICKOK Ladies Associated Sailing Sisterhood (L.A.S.S.)

Hi everyone!   A huge thank you to the outgoing Publicity Chair, Rick Graef, for his 3+ years working on the website, putting the Telltales together, and sharing important club information. I’ll be your new Master-of-Email and Website Guru.  My hope is to improve upon the website and make it more useful for everyone to use, as well as re-format how the Telltales are published so they’re easier to read.  I’ll be sending out a questionnaire looking for feedback on this process.  I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts and ideas for how the website can be used and should be tweaked. Also, I’d love to include more articles from general club members in the Telltales.  So if anyone wants to write a Letter to the Editor, please feel free to do so and email it to publicity@ecsail.org.  No promises on every article getting published, but I’ll do my best. One other neat item I’d like to bring up: the Purdue Sailing Club has become very active since the days I used to race with the team (2011-2015).  Now they’re practicing almost every Saturday and Sunday right here at ECSC.  I think that’s pretty great and will – hopefully – bring some young blood to the club.  If you see the students around, feel free to chat them up.  Maybe at some point we can include them in some social events. Happy 2020, EJ Williams, Publicity Chair ^Purdue Sailing Practice | October 2019
