    1)  South Harbor Showers are undergoing shower upgrades, thanks to the generosity of Brett Oakes (materials donation), and Joe Miller (installation). We hope to have this work completed the week of August 30.   Please use main club showers in the meantime.  South club bathroom facilities are still operational.

    2) Club Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations: These are now available for your review on the Members Only section of our new website.  Please read them over, especially if you are new to the Club. Here are a few reminders.

    a.) Please abide by guidelines for entertaining guests at the Club.  According to our Bylaws, a person may be a guest up to four times during the season.  If they like us enough to want to come more often, please recruit them as members.

    b.) Regarding access of club property by dogs:  As a general rule, no dogs are permitted on the Point, even on a leash, except for a small area by the North Docks. If you are a pet owner, and bring your pet to the club, please familiarize yourself with all relevant provisions.

    c.) Please do not tie up boats to the outside of C-Dock: There are no cleats on the lake side of C-Dock for a reason.  Boat wakes and waves from weather make that a very risky, rough proposition.  And people who do try to tie up out there must run their dock lines across the walkway, creating a tripping hazard:  never a good idea.  There are transient slips at the North Docks, and tie-ups in the South Harbor on the two fixed docks just off the South Clubhouse.

    Lifelong member of IYC, Peter Lent, passed away in his home on Wednesday, July 15th.   Peter was an active and staunch supporter of the Yacht Club through his 68 years as a member.   He sailed large and small sailboats mostly Stars, Comets, Lightnings and his family’s Coronado 27.  For those of you who knew him you will recall a dog came to the Club with him, there may have been several dogs over the years but the two most recent ones were Wolfgang, and still alive at 14 years old, is Murphy.  Peter was 91 years old.  His father, Ralph, was Commodore in the late '50's.

                   A celebration of his life will be held at the Ithaca Yacht Club on a date yet to be determined before the Club closes for this season.   An announcement will be forthcoming via this newsletter once the date has been set.
