Dear Members,

Happy October! We’ve survived this crazy summer and are now enjoying what I hope will be a fantastic fall.

We are slowly (and safely) increasing activities around the club, even though we have not officially reopened the clubhouse. Many of our regular activities are back on the schedule, and Activities Director Danielle Feerst is updating the calendar with some new ones.

Right now, members are enjoying the return of the Fall Club Series Regattas, the Monthly Music Jam on the third Wednesday of each month, and pickleball on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

There will be an Adult Learn to Sail Sunfish Clinic running two consecutive Saturdays, Oct. 3 and Oct. 10. If you’re interested, act fast because there are just a few open slots.

Last month, we started a new “Ladies Who (Don’t) Lounge” group, which meets on the third Tuesday of the month. The first meeting was a huge success, with the women of our club bringing forth a lot of ideas for exciting activities. The suggestions span kayaking and sailing to yoga and Zumba and include monthly speakers on relevant topics.

The Board has decided to resume Sunset Fridays, so our members can enjoy this fall weather while physically distanced on the back deck. 🙂 The bar and the interior of the clubhouse will remain closed, except the restrooms. We will be sending out and posting our Covid-19 General Policies shortly, so please refer to those before participating.

Thank you to all our members who are leading or volunteering to help with our Fall Maintenance Projects. Some are already underway, and there are a lot more to come. Keep your eyes open for opportunities through Sign-Up genius.

We’ve had a slight delay in the bulkhead project because we are still awaiting approval from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM). Meanwhile, we have already removed some diseased Laurel Oaks.

Finally, we will hold our fall member’s meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29, on the back deck. If it rains, we will have the meeting on Friday, Oct. 30. I hope to see you all there!

Warm Regards,
