Commodore’s Comments

Ready or not summer is here.  The bar and social committee has met monthly to develop a social calendar which can be found later in the newsletter.  Of course the schedule is subject to change so please check the club website, www.ogyc.net for current information.  A short survey has been developed to help with planning future events.  We hope to use survey monkey so that your responses can be given electronically.  Look for an e-mail in the next two weeks for information on taking the survey.  For those of you that aren’t connected to the internet we will provide a paper version of the survey.

The new Members only section of the website is now available.  We will include the password on the back of your membership card.  Cards will be going in the mail for those of you that have paid your dues after the Memorial Day weekend.  If you haven’t paid, your dues are late.

I am sorry to say that we did not have enough money in the budget this year to move forward with after hour access to the club.  This year we paid for the new monitoring system, professional services needed to get new dredging permits and we also took advantage of the barge that was in town for the new pilings to do a more extensive dredging of the slips that was more expensive than the dredging cost in the last few years.  After all of that we just didn’t have the funds to proceed with that project.  This will be an item that will be considered in the fall for the next fiscal year.

The nominating committee will be looking for new members to serve on the Executive Committee for 2015 – 2016.  Please consider serving your club as either the Treasurer or Rear Commodore.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the club this summer having a good time on the water, in the bar or enjoying the good food supplied by volunteers.

Can you believe it, the start of the OGYC Sailing season is just 4 weeks away. The 2015 sailing season is expected to be exciting for not only the novice sailors but even for our most accomplished sailors. This year we have added a new program. We will be having two 4 week sailing camps, one from June 22nd through July 16th and July 20th through August 13th.  We are also continuing the 2 week programs that we had in 2014. The 8 week program is seeing an increase in participants and we will have fleets of Lasers, Sunfish, Opti A/Bs, and Opti C’s. Please pickup a sailing brochure at the club or online at OGYC.net.

Remember that the OGYC 2 week program does not require a boat. OGYC will provide boats to be used for this program. The 4 week program prefers that the sailor has a boat but again OGYC will provide boats to those who do not have their own. Through donations and hard work refurbishing used boats OGYC now has 8 Optis, 5 sunfish and a Laser. Our most recent donation is a brand new Opti fully equipped. It was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Daniels of Point Pleasant Beach in honor of their son Thomas who will be attending the USCG Academy this fall.

We are aware that end of year school events sometimes become hectic and everyone has not submitted their sailing applications. We are asking everyone who will be sailing to get their registration forms in as soon as possible to help the sailing staff and instructors finalize their fleet plans.

For many of our non member sailors, I would like to inform them that the Sailing Foundation of Barnegat Bay does have sailing scholarships available for non members only. The scholarship information is available on the foundations web sight at sailingfoundationofbarnegatbay.org. Last year OGYC sponsored 6 sailors in the scholarship program.

If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me at jfryog@aol.com  Make sure you the word sailing in the subject line.

Keep in mind that there is always a demand for volunteers to have a successful event and a productive year! You can contact me or Joella Nicastro at any time if you would like to offer your help. If there is no other scheduled event, we will be planning to open the Tim-Bo Lounge every weekend night during the summer season. On these nights we will be offering a different variety of bar food. Please check your calendar for the dates.

Because of its popularity last year the bar will continue to feature Sam Seasonal Ale, Corona and Corona Light with the addition of Rolling Rock and Smirnoff Ice.

For your convenience the ice box (down under) is full. During the hours of 8am-5pm you can give your payment to the steward. After hours, the ice box is on an honor system. Please place your money in the envelope inside the door of the box. The price of a 7oz. bag of ice is $3.00 and a 16 oz. is $5.00.

 

Reminder:

The only paid employees of the OGYC are the Stewards and the Sailing Instructors.  The remainder of the work is being done by club members that volunteer their time and talents to the club.  Please remember this when you are attending functions at the club.  You can thank your fellow club members with their functions by placing all trash from you table in the trash cans and returning all glasses and empty beer bottles to the bar.

 

BBYRA

The BBYRA Commodore’s Ball is being held this year at the Toms River Yacht Club on Saturday, June 13th at 6:30PM.  The cost is $60 per person and the deadline to RSVP at the $60 is now June 1st.  Send you check to the Toms River Yacht Club, 1464 Riviera, Toms River, NJ 08753.

Volunteer(s) Needed:

Our Junior Program is in need of an advisor(S).  This group is for children of our members 13 – 19 years old.  In the 1970’s there was also a group for the children of members ages 7 – 12.  These groups are mainly social with an opportunity to do some volunteer work at the yacht club.  Meetings are held one night a week or every other week for an hour or two.  Activities can include volley ball games, an evening sail on the river, going to the movies, watching a movie at the club with popcorn, tie dyeing t-shirts or whatever activities you can imagine.  Please contact me if you are interested in you are interested in helping with either of these groups at kingsofnj@comcast.net or 856-234-3062.
