Port Clinton Yacht Club
PCYC February 2014
What a great morning to sit in a cozy room overlooking the slopes at Boyne Highlands. The PCYC ski team has overwhelmed Boyne Highlands with over 60 members and families. We have renamed it PCYC North. Ramon is waiting for me to join him for first tracks on the slopes but at minus 2.75 degrees I feel it it my responsibility to dili-gently work on this jib sheet article. It could be a long one because I plan on writing until a Chinook wind comes along and warms things up a bit. Our annual ski race is planned for later today. This year we have monitors to pre-vent ski race number switching and to make sure everyone goes through all the gates. This is quite a serious event that carries the prestige of an Olympic encounter and one year of bragging rights. Con-sider joining us for one of our two winter won-derland outings at Peak N Peak after Christmas or the January outing at Boyne Highlands. The other option is the Power Fleet Wine Cruise coming up soon. The cold and snow this January has not pre-vented us from enjoying our club. We started 2014 off with front row seats of the Walleye Drop, sprinkling of snow, and fire-works. Our popu-lar Friday Night Snacks including Tacos, Carol Greene's special soup with her famous Dump-lings (two eggs per cup of flower) my absolute favorite, and Cellier's homemade cheese and chicken enchiladas. The Christmas decom-missioning was com-pleted in record time (any football games that Sunday??) and the Winter Brunch was out-standing on a sunny, cold beautiful winter level something day! We were treated to a fantastic Prime Rib meal at the Recognition Dinner, prepared and served in traditional PCYC fashion by a dedicated committee. I brought my daughters Christmas Ginger Bread House Creation to the club to display. After dinner it all but disap-peared. We really have some Ginger Bread lov-ers at the club - isn't that right - Vicki?
This years Award win-ners were: George Shade Memo-rial Jr. Sailor of the Year - David Leone Shark Trophy - Skipper of the Year - Dennis and James Bergeman Oliver True Memorial Trophy for Outstanding Service - Fred Pachasa February starts with my favorite BYOS on February 1st. You have your choice of three (not one but three) different soups, the potato bar, the salad bar, and special Mama Joe's pies for dessert. That is a meal in itself. Thus, you do not need to go outside

“The cold and snow this January has not  prevented us from enjoying our club. “ 
The Rear Perspective
Is winter ever going to end!?!? Eric has been keeping busy with inside jobs and snow plowing. With the cold tem-peratures in January not much is going on outside ex-cept some ice fishing. But, spring will come. At the time  you are reading this you should have seen some signs of spring, especially if you at-tended the Cleveland boat show. There are definitely signs that the Best Club on the Lake is preparing for spring behind the scenes; the boat lifts are in the shop and will be ready for the summers use and  John Henry Bolte is working with Eric on some mechanical issues at the pool. It is sure great that we have such tal-ented members. Our largest project for the  year, the
Glass House Re-placement
 is proceeding smoothly. We are negotiating with a contractor on the scope and pricing. Again we ask for  your patience as we finalize the details of the project. We still have a target to have this infor-mation out to our members before one of our spring mem-bership meetings for your ap-proval. Our negotiating team is headed up by Dave Oberge-feld and includes John Lus-combe and myself. Don’t hesi-tate to contact one of us, any Flag or Board member if you have any questions. From time to time members borrow items from the club. We are looking for several missing large cooking pots from the kitchen. If you have borrowed these, please return them. We will have to turn the security cameras on in the kitchen if we continue to loose items. If you notice anything else missing please notify Chuck. Speaking of the kitchen, some routine mainte-nance was performed on the exhaust hood as it was pres-sure washed. This is com-pleted every year as this is one of those items that the health dept. inspects. As our pool Chairs, Cory and Renee Stine and Eric and Diane Zeitzheim are preparing for the spring. They are look-ing for Lifeguard and Atten-dants staff. If your child or grandchild is interested, you can pick up an application for employment at the bar. The chairpersons would like these returned by the end of March so their team can be finalized before the season begins. Spring will be here before you know it. Watch out for that ground hogs shadow. Ah, I never believed in that anyway. I just watch for the grasses greening and the warmer tem-peratures that lie ahead. I welcome any comments or suggestions in regards to the house and grounds. I can be contacted at my cell (419-261-8630) or email me at doug-las.shealy13@gmail.com. Just remember “
This is your Club, Use It and have fun 
 I will keep saying this all year and maybe by the end, you too, will really believe it. RC Doug
for nice weather. With each win-ter day that passes, we are one day closer to the April Ice-Breaker. Think Spring... Happy Boating RJ Basil FCOP Plans for the 2014 "Cruise-Outs" are being made. I am hoping to have things finalized over the next few weeks with the final destina-tions announced next month. The "Wine Cruise" will be held on Feb-ruary 15th. For those that have signed up, the bus will be depart-ing from PCYC at noon. Lets hope
 This is your editor filling in for the Sail Fleet Report. Commodore Mike took time from the slopes to submit his report but I couldn’t get Ramon’s report by my dead-line. I want you all to be aware of Feb 1st & 2nd so-cial events at the club. I attended the Recognition dinner and sat with Dan, the Felters and Ramon. It’s always a really nice and well attended event although this  year a popular wedding drew many of our members away for the evening. Dinner was as good as ever. Our Jr. Sailor of the year award was presented to David Leon. The Shark Tro-phy went to past commo-dore Denny Bergeman. The Oliver True Memorial Award was presented to Diane and Fred Pachesa. Thanks to all of members and volunteers for their support. We recog-nized all of our bar staff, grounds keepers and club officers for their time and dedication. Thanks went out to all our past Commodore’s whether they could be with us or not. There are count-less members who deserve thanks, who work hard to keep our club one of the nicest clubs on the great lakes, and every effort was made to include you all. Reminder to attend the Jun-ior Sail spaghetti fundraiser dinner on February 21st. (I think it’s spaghetti, it usu-ally is.) Look for details from Secretary Dave Bringman as the event gets closer.
