With only a thirty percent chance of rain and predicted winds of five to ten mph Saturday and Sunday, this weekend should be a perfect time to take your boat out for a shake down cruise.  The river is at the lowest level that it has been all year with very little current.

It is time to get the boats to the lower level for sailing.   That way we can get the grass cut top side.

Thanks to Bob Zax for scraping all the lower level and covering the mud area with gravel.  Thanks to Bill Timmer and Jim Wilhelm for hosing all the mud and moss from the docking areas.

Pat Passafiume, Charlie Bohn, Lee Gerstle and others have repaired one floating dock and are working on getting the new flotation attached to the other floating dock.

Thanks, to all who have done many other things to get the club running smoothly.  Have you done your spring commissioning duties?

We do need to get the upstream hoist installed.

Docking Area

LSC is seeing an increase of small boat boats at the club.  That is the good news.  Unfortunately, there is not enough space for everyone to have a river side spot on the lower level. Docking space is awarded on dock seniority, and club seniority.  Some boats that are eligible for lower dock parking may be assigned to the hillside part of the lower level.

Spaces for temporary launching have been left at spaces S, T, U, and next to the committee boat for those that are assigned to the hillside area and those who store their boats on the upper level.  The ramp is also available but be careful.  It is very slippery.

If you do use a vacant assigned spot, be sure that sailor assigned that spot is not in need of it while you are on the water.

Secure Your Property

Be sure to secure all your property at the club.  We have had another theft reported on Beachland Beach Road.  As you leave the club, be sure all doors to the club house are locked and the gate is locked. Also, honor our neighbors.  Keep your speed down.

Equipment Identification

In a continuing effort to manage the boats stored at the club and discover which boats are abandoned, we need to identify the currentmembership’s boats. When invoices were sent out stickers were attached.  They have the year, 2014, and your invoice number. Please put one on the starboard bow of each boat, just below the rub rail; the other goes on your trailer - right side or top of the hitch fitting.  If you have a sail stored in the club house, use one for the sail/mast, near the step.  If you need stickers for your boat, contact Eugene Cox.

It is also a good idea to paint your name on your cradle.  When the mud crews have to quickly get boats off the lower dock when the river is rising, there is no time to make sure all cradles and boats are matched together.
