QYC News Feed

There is a new section on the website called the QYC News Feed.  As the pace of our information updates increase, the task of sorting and organizing information on this main page becomes more difficult to maintain and less useful to our members.  The QYC News Feed will provide an area that we can post on and you can easily follow announcements, articles or other items of interest. And for those of you who might be interested, that page is our RSS feed, so you can subscribe and receive updates using tools like FeedlyFeedReader, or any other related tools.

Club Announcements

  • Member docs were mailed June 27th.  They are also posted on the members page.
  • There are very high winds, and boats are being tossed around.  Please ensure boats are well and properly secured.  Please tie off low on the posts and avoid tying to posts with electrical conduit.  The use of snubbers is highly encouraged to prevent damage.   Ask a director if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Trexler gas improvement construction has begun.  Please keep an eye out for work areas around the clubhouse and the lighthouse.  Construction should be done in mid July.

Member Update from Board of Directors, Summer 2016

  • The BOD would like your help.  If you are interested in forming or joining a group to help out, please get in touch with a director.  Things like Social, Facilities, Maintenance are some of the areas that we are thinking of, but are open to your ideas.
  • (Update 6/3/2106) The Board of Directors voted unanimously to lift moratorium on boat length, primarily due to missteps in establishing a moratorium at the outset.  You’ll recall that at our annual meeting, a Committee was established to review this matter and provide their insights and recommendations to the Board of Directors. The Board will refer to the current By-Laws and Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions for guidance on boat length until a recommendation by the committee is submitted and the Board can review and establish the best way forward.
  • (Update 5/30/2016)  The Board of Directors met on 5/30/2016 and voted Susan Donnelly (Slip 77), Stan Pollack (Slip 42), and Greg DePasse (Slip 43) as interim directors.  The new Board voted on officers.
  • (Update 5/28/2016)  After the Annual Member meeting, 3 Directors resigned.  Wes Schurman and Bill Paro remain on the board and will follow bylaw 4-400 to fill the vacancies.
  • Owners that rent may rent their slip only one time per season.   It is the responsibility of the slip owner or rental agent to inform the renter of   1) the allowable boat length for his slip,   2) proof of insurance with QYC as additionally insured and   3) QYC rules and regulations.  Please remember that proof of insurance for renters and owners must be provided to QYC BOD before boat is put in slip.  Slip owner must inform a board member the name, address, phone number and email address of all renters.
  • Dog owners must provide proof of liability coverage on homeowners/renters insurance.
  • Boat stickers will not be required this year. Parking stickers will be required since parking continues to be a problem especially during holidays. Owners need to provide renters with temporary stickers for guests which are located on bulletin board.

Please consult a board member should you have any questions.
