Time To Thank Holy Martyrs

Monday, July 28th, 2014

   Over the years our neighbors at Holy Martyrs Church have graciously allowed us to use their parking lot which has been a big help to our fleet and Wednesday night racing.
In the past we have solicited donations to Holy Martyrs on behalf of the PYC sailing community.   Please donate today and help us thank them for the use of their lot. They are not expecting this. Several years ago we made a donation and they were both surprised and very grateful.
   Make your check out to Holy Martyrs Church in any amount and I will be collecting donations over the next couple of weeks after racing.The Etchells and Thursday night racers will also be contributing.

Parking at PYC Wednesday Nights

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Just a gentle reminder that we are now in high season at PYC and the club has asked that only members with stickers on their cars park at PYC on Wednesday nights. They have noted several nonmember cars in the lot over the last few weeks. In the past they have towed vehicles that were not supposed to be there.
Please remind any nonmember folks on your boat to park at the church.
