Commodore’s Corner
Having the benefit of John Peterson’sexcellent layout for the Eagle’s Cry, Iwill venture into my first issue hopingthe result will be equally pleasing andinformative. And give John your heartyappreciation for a job well done asCommodore the next time you see him.This fall issue will deal primarily withthe events of our ever growing number of young members and their activitiesfor 2003. Making these events a successtakes dedication, love of kids, and inmany instances, perseverance. It alsotakes great kids and in this case we havea lot to be grateful for. Those workingdirectly with our youth and contributingto this success were: Sarah Lisle, LarryLewis, Malcolm “Skipper” Harsch,Travis Lyon, Jason Brown, J.P. Pillat,Christian Pillat, Hugh Haggerty, DebbyHeidler, Suzanne Lisle, Rich Hall, DianeTaillon, John & Deanna Peterson, TriciaTuemminello, Vicki Bowers, AnneCrowe, Karen Brown, David Sauter, and182 students and their MOMS! Take pleasure in the following articles. Onelook at the EYC summer calendar tellsus of the huge role our First Matesplay in the life of our Club. Please thank Deanna Peterson for a great job putting
these events together with her wonderful band of volunteers. More on them later.Finally, your roving reporter, LarryLewis, has some “ event news” for you.George V Carey, Commodore

Ephraim Sesquicentennial
By George Carey
EYC was privileged to participate in thiswonderful celebration of Ephraim’s150
birthday. Through the efforts of many EYC members, the Clubsponsored a traditional “Venetian Night” parade of exquisitely decorated boats, inan early evening parade around EphraimHarbor. Despite an early evening storm,complete with rain, thunder and lighting,to each boat’s credit, they hung in thereand put on a good show! The Club produced eight boats for the parade.Later I learned that this was the most boats of several parades held in the area.Our hats are off to those brave skippers,
which include; John and DeannaPeterson, Max Robinette, ChrisBungner, Mike and Suzanne Lisle, JohnCox and the Ephraim fireboat withGeorge Carey and Scott Weborg ascrew, Weed and Betty Vail, CharleyGreen and Charley Schult.
By David Sauter, Chair 
Wow! What a year for EYC and of course it all happens with some terrific people on our staff and all the participants.Thank you Larry Lewis, for nurturingour adult sailing program to new levels.Also, Larry, thanks for helping integratethe new Optimist beginning boat into our lesson program. Hats off to Jack McCoyfor steering the club in this direction.The Opti is the International standardnow for beginners. More will be donethis winter to further our knowledge inthe use of these boats. We are all pleased with the growing number of students from the surrounding Ephraimarea and their parents’ involvement aswell. Our newly renovated club facilitieshave certainly added to the success of our programs, so thanks again to all whoworked so hard on this project. Goingforward, we have some challenges toaddress. We have a growing programand limited space. Some creative ideasare being discussed. Some increase inwater levels will help. So all of you withwater level expertise please get busy!

2003 was a summer of high enthusiasm,with great improvements made to thefleets and the clubhouse, high lessonenrollment and super participation in theyacht club’s many events.EYC really had a great staff this year.Larry Lewis, Jason Brown and JP Pillatreturned this year plus we were fortunateto have new members; Skip Harsch,Travis Lyon, Christian Pillat and HughHaggery. I also want to thank theexceptional group of volunteers. Without
the staff would not be able to perform its job.Another record in enrollment numbersgreeted 2003. Session A: 31 students,Session B: 50 students, Session C: 56students, Session D: 45 students, totaling182! For the year 2002: 143 students.For 2001: 128 students. Our lesson programs are a terrific way to get kidsinvolved with the club, building sailingskills and interacting through teamwork with their fellow students. This givesEYC an excellent opportunity to foster and further develop interest for thefuture.We were able to replace two old andunsafe Scots this year with newer ones, plus the addition of 3 new Optimisttrainers gave us a well-rounded fleet.The Opti’s filled a need by helping our younger beginning sailors gain
