north to Boyne High-lands for Carnival week-end. Ramon E, Eric Z, Steve G, Pat R, Steve N, Michael R, Kent F tell me we had a great time  but all I remember is the Safe Boating Seminar that we attended. As the ice continues to melt we may have some interesting ice forma-tions along the lake shore west of the club if we get a good NE storm. We have had some inter-esting formations al-ready this year by the Marblehead lighthouse and the west Portage River pier. A heavy NE wind, high water, and ice under the docks are not a good combination for PCYC docks. I might even relive my earlier days at the Club and challenge climbing the ice formations if they form. Maybe I will just take pictures instead! The Rear Commodore already has the tennis court ready to play. We are hoping for some nice days to remove tree  branches and leaves from the grounds ahead of the April 13th work  party. It could rain that weekend and we want to make use of any nice days that we have. When we start talking "Work Party" we know that spring is just around the corner. The Sailing seminar on March 22 at PCYC was very informative. I have a better appreciation for the knowledge or in some cases the lack of knowledge of our sail-ors. I learned I need to stick to moving race  buoys and stay on a  power boat. The next opportunity to learn more about sailing will  be at SSC on Saturday, April 19. This will be a Race Management Semi-nar which is very impor-tant for those wishing to help out with our races. Another educational op- portunity will be the Weather Seminar at our club on Sunday, May 18th. Please sign up at the bar for that meeting. In April we have sched-uled a FNS, the Tax Day Party, the Kids Easter Party, the Work Party, and a BYOS. Next year's Social Calendar (May 1, 2014 - Apr 30, 2015) is  being proof read and soon will be printed and mailed in early April. At this time we could use some extra help on the Mothers' Day Commit-tee and the New Years Eve function. If you would like to participate  please contact Dr. Pat Reineck of the Social committee. Finally, in May, on Memorial Day, I would like to ask all PCYC current military and Veterans to help celebrate the short river-front ceremony here at the club at 9:00 am be-fore the community ceremony at Veterans Park at 10:00 am. I would also like to congratulate PCYC member’s son Tristan Auxter on receiving his Boy Scout Eagle Award recently. He was pre-sented his award by Dr. Derrill Hablitzel, who was the second Eagle Scout in Ottawa County in 1932.

Spring has sprung and the risers are in at PCYC awaiting your boats. "April Fool" !!! We are having a  bit of a problem with 18 inches of ice in the lagoon. However, on the positive side the ice gave Eric and Doug the opportunity to catch some nice perch for the Junior Sail Fundraiser. See the photo on page 4. I asked Doug F to cut some more holes around the docks for riser placement  but he declined my invita-tion. Since the lagoon was full of ice we cancelled the riser party and the PCYC snow ski team headed

After you have read the Commodore’s report you may see a common theme with my report; cold, ice, winter like weather. March is supposed to be a month of transition from winter to spring. By this time of year we usually can spot a few early boat-ers in their docks. That has not happened yet. Our annual “Riser Party” is scheduled for the weekend of April 6
, not March 30
 as the social calendar sug-gests. As that date ap- proaches we will evaluate whether the risers can be installed due to the ice. In spite of the weather we continue with our activi-ties. Everyone enjoyed themselves at our Mardi Gras party in preparation for Fat Tuesday and all the Irish were out for our St. Patrick’s Day party. For a first time our regular stag event was changed to a Family Burger event on Sunday evening. I hope everyone enjoyed this event as it was re-scheduled from Wednes-day due to a level 3 snow storm. By the way, the  burgers were very tasty. Our annual “Spring Work Party” date is approaching fast and is scheduled for April 13
. We depend on our members at this event to assist in our spring  preparation of the club house and grounds for the summer of events and use. Please do consider work-ing at this event as there are many projects to com- plete and we are a working club. We will serve a hearty lunch and bloody Mary’s for anyone who shows up to work. If we encounter bad weather for that day we ask that volun-teers consider coming to the club on their leisure to assist in cleanup items on any nice day. Please see Chuck Reichman if you have any time to contrib-ute. Our men’s restroom re-modeling project will start soon. Please be patient of the inconveniences while we complete this project. During this project, port-able toilets are located at the rear entrance to the club house for the men’s use. We are stepping back and taking another perspective of our club house glass house replacement project. Other potential options have become apparent to our board and planning committee. So as to not take the incorrect path for our membership we are looking at the bar, the

The first "Cruise-Out" of the year will be held April 25,26,27. This event could actually be an "Ice -Breaker", as the lake is still frozen over. For this event we typically go to "A" Dock, but that may not be an option this year. The city docks are currently being renovated. We may have to look for alter-native dock space. I will keep all those that have signed up in the loop as the dates get closer. No matter the weather it is always great to get back to PIB to start the season. The "Cruise-Out" book is at the bar. Please take the time to sign up for upcoming cruising events. The more people that participate, the better the event. Happy boating, RJ Basil, FCOP

I really enjoyed the personal stories that he included. Cliff Ruckstill made this event possible. It was not only an educational seminar but also a Jr. Sailing Fundraiser event. 31 people attended including 5 Jr. sailors. Thank you to Ranae Ruckstill and Sara Hanselman for putting on a wonderful lunch.
