Social October 2021

Although I was unable to attend the Chili Cookoff, I hear it was a great hit!  Thank you Jennifer Curtis and the Knapp gang for taking charge and providing yet one more great event this season!

As we come to a close of the season, Nan Schultz and her committee with Nick Mates is preparing for our Final Bash.  We have chosen the theme: Nautical Adventure.  It will be hosted at the Marriott North (Keystone at the Crossing) on November 6th.  Cocktails begin at 5:30, Dinner at 6:00 and Dancing at 8:00.  We will have a door prize drawing at 10:00 for a FREE ECSC 2022 Membership!  Cost is $30 per member and $35 for non-members.  $50 at the door for those who do not pre-pay RSVP. Please be sure to RSVP by October 30th!  Checks can be mailed to Nick Mates.  For Zelle payments, please contact Tom Moore. This will also be your last opportunity to vote for next seasons board.  Special Room rates are also available for those who wish to get a room for the night!

I will begin putting together our 2022 schedule of events in December.  If you have any suggestions or would like to see something new and different on the schedule, please do not hesitate to let me know.

As always, it is a pleasure to serve my fellow sailors!

The 2021 season is quickly coming to a close.  The Lobster Fest was a great success!  We served 125 Lobsters and 35 steaks. Thank you to Kenneth and Karen Orndorff for hosting and Erich Rose for his steak grilling skills!  Bruce and Ethel Brenner and Steve Earnhart for your boiling skills!  I continue to receive positive feedback about bringing your own side dishes for your own group.

Our next event is the Hornback Chili Cookoff held on Saturday, October 16th.  This event is hosted by Jennifer Curtis and her crew.  She always does a great job offering a family-friendly event with fall activities for the kiddos.  For those of you who are new to the club, bring your best pot of chili and fixings.  Everyone will have a chance to taste and vote on the best pot and then enjoy a full bowl….or two.  Start time is roughly 5:00pm following the regatta.  Keep an eye out on Facebook and your email for additional details.  Save the date for November 6th for the Final Bash!  More details to come.

Social August 2021

Our beach party in July was a great success and I do believe a good time was had by all! A big THANK YOU to Nick Mates and his crew, Jackie Deppe, Chuck & Nancy Goff, Tom & Kathy Newgent, Tim & Ardi Hollingsworth, and Jim & Weir…and Amy Miller for arranging the caterer. Also, I do believe the Hobie raffle was a great success as well! Thanks Dennis Robertson and Jenipher Gee for taking the lead on the fundraiser for our Junior Sailing Program!

Although we are taking a break from events in August, Amy and I continue the planning process for the remainder of the season. Our Labor Day event will be held on Saturday, September 4th from 5pm to 7pm. The club will provide the Burgers and Brats and are asking attendees to bring their own side dishes to share with their own group. As we did for Memorial Day, we will cue the tables to the serving line. We are actively seeking a host/hostess and volunteers for this event.

September 18th is our Lobster Festival! We will begin at 5pm. Due to the increasing cost of Lobster and Steak, we are requiring Pre-Paid Reservations. Cost will be $20 per members and $25 for non-members. RSVP and Payment required by September 8th! No reservations will be accepted after September 8th as I will be submitting the final lobster count to the lobster company. We will have a table set up at the Labor Day event to take reservations and payment. You may also mail your reservation and check made out to ECSC to Vickie Greenough – please refer to the club membership directory for address. Please contact me for alternative payment options.

The final bash planning is well underway! Be on the lookout for our survey and additional information. We will require Pre-Paid Reservations for this event as well.

Thank you all for your patience as we continue to navigate the pandemic. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Also, prizes will be awarded for best decorated boat in the cove or beach area, best beach outfits, best pirate outfits, best dancers (on the beach), best pool flotation, and last person to go home!

Thank you to those who helped make our the Labor Day event a great success! Although there was a short wait for your food, Chef TLC and his team did a great job serving 86 “cook to order meals” in such a short time!

Our next event is Father’s Day. This event will be hosted on June 20th from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Tony Rice and Erich Rose are looking forward to cooking up the Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, and Biscuits and Gravy! We will NOT have our typical pitch in for sides, however if you wish to bring a side dish to share with your own group, you may do so. We are seeking 3 vaccinated volunteers to assist in serving. We are also looking for a host/hostess for the event. Remember, you can earn work credits for volunteering to assist. There is no cost to this event, however we are asking for an RSVP so we know how much food to purchase. Please RSVP to Vickie Greenough 317-847-7400 (text or call) by June 15th.

Social May 2021

We are well on our way to planning the season events. Based on the feedback from the recent survey, our normal social events will be modified for yet another year. We are forgoing any and all pitch-in style events for the time being, and will be offering either catered or food truck options. With catering and food trucks being more costly than our typical pitch-in events, we have opted to eliminate the pig roast scheduled for July 3rd. For all other events, to ensure the safety of our members, we will need volunteers to help sanitize tables after each use. The following is the current social schedule:

May 9th – 11:30am to 2pm – Bring your own brunch. We will have tables dressed in the upper shelter. The first 24 Mom’s receive a special gift. Please check in at the race shed to pick up your special gift.

May 29th – 3:30pm start time – Memorial Weekend – Come at your leisure. We are finalizing a food truck so it will be best to come in waves. Tables will be dressed in the upper shelter for seating.

June 20th – Father’s Day – Details to come

July 17th – Beach Party – Catered – We will need volunteers who are vaccinated to be servers

Sept 4th – Labor Day – Food Truck TBD

Sept 18th – Lobster Fest – Working on confirming J’s Lobster Food Truck

Oct 17th – Chili Cookoff – Tentative. Observing CDC guidelines for this type of event

Nov 6th – Final Bash – Details to come

We are also looking at adding some small bring-your-own picnics with music around the lower shelter. Stay tuned and keep your eye out for announcements at the club, on Facebook, and via E-Mail blasts. If you have suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact Vickie Greenough or Amy Miller.

Happy Sailing!
