    Dear IYC Parents:

    We'd like to share information about the IYC Junior Roasts and to ask for your help in supporting this tradition (of more than 60 years!) at IYC by signing up to help serve the food one Thursday evening this summer.  Here is the link to sign up: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-XRUbA0GrHrKlbSR2Jp6o6tY-3WpkZqfzaHIY-as1Ok

    But wait, you are thinking, what does this entail?? Not much! On your Jr. Roast night, you should arrive at 5:30. The IYC/Luna Staff will set out the tables, the condiments, and provide the burgers, hotdogs, buns and grilling equipment. You will also have a Jr. Roast buddy, so between the two of you, all you have to do is:

    1. Get the cash box from the IYC/Luna staff, 

    2. Arrange the “dish to pass” contributions from parents on the table

    3. Collect cash from the kids at the table as they pass through, starting at 6pm  - ($3 per child)

    4. Ask the restaurant staff for anything we need – utensils, more ketchup, veggie burgers, etc. 

    5. Help tidy up at the end of the meal, which is super simple since parents will come pick up their dishes

    6. Enjoy all the other Junior Roasts knowing you have done your part to support this awesome tradition! 

    We are also looking for grill master volunteers, which just requires a willingness to cook burgers and hotdogs at the end of the table! For each night, we need 2 table helpers and 1 grill master. Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-XRUbA0GrHrKlbSR2Jp6o6tY-3WpkZqfzaHIY-as1Ok 

    Pick a date, then tell your friends! Better yet, get them to take a shift with you!

    Thanks and let us know if you have any questions!

    Lindsay Anderson & Emily Russell (parent volunteers)

    IYC is pleased to announce that we will be offering adult sailing lessons!  Lessons will be 2X weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning July 29 - August 14.   

    Adults will receive a US Sailing Learn to Sail book, along with instruction from 2 our certified sailing instructors.  You can expect to learn the anatomy of a sailboat, how to rig / de-rig, various points of sail both up and downwind, and hopefully enjoy the stunning scenery and breezes of Cayuga Lake. The cost is $200 for members and $250 for non-members.  

    Private lessons can also be arranged.

    Please join us for our annual trip up the lake to visit our friends at Red Jacket Yacht Club on Aug 24.  RJYC invites us every year and organizes a dinner and lawn games. Sailors start early for a long distance race to the club, but others motor or drive up to join the fun.

    RJYC has a warm salt water pool and nice shower facilities, so bring the kids! A mooring field and dock are available. Most of time, we spend the night there - sleeping on boats or camping on the beautiful grounds (bring your own tent).

    RJYC will have a cash bar (very reasonable prices!) and a chicken BBQ ($14 each). RJYC requests that dinners be reserved in advance. If you reserve, please show up (or send a payment later if you cannot make it)

    Reserve your dinner spots by contacting Paul Kolb by Fri, Aug 9:

    Paul Kolb (RJYC Fleet Captain) pkolb41@gmail.com or 585-732-3024 

    If you want to join the group sailing up the lake, contact CLCF Fleet captain, Ricky Bray for a start time:

    Thanks to all our members who volunteered their time for one (or more) of the past weekend work events.  We had over 20 volunteers for each of the last three Saturdays and so we are in good shape for the opening of our season and the upcoming Mother's Day Brunch on May 12.

    Special thanks to IYC boaters Jeff Spence and Richard and Melissa Stephens for participating in the Ithaca Youth Bureau Big Brothers Big Sisters boating event recently held at IYC on Aug. 23. IYC had three boats on the water and hosted five pairs of IYB children and adults. From all accounts, everyone enjoyed their time on the boats, while discussing everything from how to read the wind on the water to glacial formation of the lake.

    We hope to continue this collaboration next year and hope to pick up more participants at both IYB and IYC.
