To our Members, 

We are going day by day on the Covid-19 virus and are updating the Club Membership on any actions.  This is the update for April event cancellations at the Club.

Basically, everything has been cancelled or postponed through April.  That would include:

  • Flag Raising for this coming Friday.
  • All organized Pickleball.
  • All Sunset Fridays, including the bar.
  • Santa Elena Regatta scheduled for April 4-5.  This may be rescheduled for another weekend later in the year.
  • Catboat, PHRF and Dinghy Spring Series cancelled through April. 
  • Rudy and Jill Sechez, ICW presentation for April 17.
  • Also, the Classic Boat Rally for May 6-8 has been cancelled.

Like everyone else we hope that May will be different but it’s not looking good so far.  We will send out an update near the end of April and if we get some major changes in policy. 

One of the major activities of the Club is the pool and the usual opening by the end of April.  Whether that happens depends on several factors; weather,  DHEC policies and the general feeling on whether it is wise to do so.  Jerry will be communicating the status later in April.

If you have questions you can contact any Board Member, Officer or Jerry at the office.  Be safe and we’ll see you after this is over.

 

The Board of Directors

Second message regarding Covid 19 to our Members and their Families:

This is an update to our club activity notice of cancellations and postponements. As we become more locked down and more information becomes available, we feel we need to take further steps to avoid group gatherings and close interaction.

The following revised schedule extends to through April or until further notice.  Highlights in blue represent new info.

 

  • Mar. 17 and beyond. Pickleball.  Scheduled play is CANCELLED.  Courts are open for casual play.
  • Mar. 18.  Open Music Jam. CANCELLED.
  • Mar. 20.  New Member Orientation.  CANCELLED.
  • Mar. 20.  Sunset Friday’s.  CANCELLED.  Bar operation is cancelled until further notice, but the Club is open for those that want to show.  This is not a Club sponsored event and you need to make your own risk assessment.  BYOB.
  • Mar. 21.  High School Regatta.  CANCELLED.
  • Mar. 21 Catboat Spring Series.  POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, NOT BEFORE MID-APRIL
  • Mar. 27.  Flag Raising and Chili Cookoff.  POSTPONED.
  • Mar. 28   PHRF Spring Series. POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, NOT BEFORE MID-APRIL.
  • Mar. 29.  Dinghy Spring Series.  POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, NOT BEFORE MID-APRIL. RC is encouraged to pick other open slots in May.
  • Apr. 4-5 Santa Elena Regatta.  POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
  • Apr. 17   Presentation by Rudy and Jill Sechez on travelling the ICW.  CANCELLED.

 

The net result is that there are no organized activities at the Club in March or April except for the few folks who want to meet on their own with plenty of space.

 

Please contact any of the Board Members, Club Officers or Jerry with any questions or concerns you may have.

 

Stay safe and we’ll see you when the coast is clear.

 

BYSC Board of Directors.

To our Members and their Families:

We do not want to add to the panic regarding the Covid 19 virus but with President Trump calling this a National Emergency and with recommendations from the CDC we think that the prudent thing to do is to cancel or postpone a number of our events that involve close social interaction. Therefore, we are taking the following steps for the remainder of March.  We will look at April events in a week or so when we have more information.

Those planning to attend activities that are limited to just a few persons or are separated by space need to decide themselves whether they want to continue or postpone.

  • Mar. 17 and beyond. Pickleball.  Scheduled play is CANCELLED.  Courts are open for casual play.
  • Mar. 18.  Open Music Jam. CANCELLED.
  • Mar. 20.  New Member Orientation.  CANCELLED.
  • Mar. 20.  Sunset Friday.  CANCELLED.  Bar operation is cancelled until further notice, but the club is open for those that want to show.  This is not a Club sponsored event and you need to make your own risk assessment.  BYOB.
  • Mar. 21.  High School Regatta.  Under discussion with final decision on Mar. 16.
  • Mar. 27.  Flag Raising and Chili Cookoff.  POSTPONED.
  • Mar. 28.  Catboat Spring Series.  CONTINUING AS SCHEDULED.

PHRF Spring Series, CONTINUING AS SCHEDULED, BUT DISCUSS AMONG YOURSELVES

WHETHER TO SAIL DUE TO LARGER NUMBERS OF CREW.

  • Mar. 29.  Dinghy Spring Series.  Under discussion due mostly to the close proximity of RC members to each other.

Of course, we hope that this will blow over quickly and we can return to our normal activities soon.  But, in the interim we feel that this action is warranted.

Please contact any of the Board Members or Jerry with and questions or concerns you may have.

BYSC Board of Directors.
