Lake Eustis Sailing Club, Eustis, FL

Summer Sailstice 2013

Hi!  I wanted to give you a quick rundown of what happened at the Lake Eustis "Summer Sailstice" this weekend, Friday, Saturday & Sunday, June 21st, 22nd and 23rd.  If you weren't there, you missed a GREAT time!  There was a Sailing Poker Run, good food, games, live bluegrass music, good food, fun conversations, and did I mention good food?  LESC member Glenda Libby did an EXCELLENT job of organizing our Summer Sailstice, putting together the Schedule of Events, and inviting lots of people.  THANK YOU, Glenda!

We had Ocala Sailing club, the "Trailer Sailors",  and several other organizations who showed up and sailed with us.  A "Sailing Poker Run" was set up and conducted by Glenda, involving sailing to three different buoys and picking up a poker chip.  Whoever had all three poker chips was then the winner.  The winner was, (I don't know)!.

We also had about 7-8 musicians who brought their instruments, set their chairs in a circle in a "Pickers' Circle", and then played for us for 2-3 hours and entertained the crowd.  George & Charlotte Marriott loaned us an overhead canopy to provide a shady spot for the musicians.  There were several guitars, a banjo, and a mountain dulcimer who played for us.  All of the musicians also sailed on a boat and all wanted to come back and sail with us again.  We hope to see them again soon! 

We had 36 Guests who came to sail with us for the Sailstice.  Some were from other sailing clubs and some were even first-time sailors.  All of the guests registered in our new LESC Guest Book. We already have 2 new members, Erich and Elaine Mertz, brought by Richard Kinnie,  who are experienced sailors!! Keep those new guests coming to LESC!

Congratulations to the new LESC Sailstice Weekend Guest Recruiting Trophy winner, Ed & Lynn Sims of Ocala!  Glenda, Rich, and I, weren't eligible for the "Sacred Ceramic Cow" Recruiting Trophy.  Ed & Lynn won the LESC "Sacred Ceramic Cow" Recruiting Trophy and a $25.00 Chili's gift certificate donated by Rich Garwood.  We will restart this new trophy for Labor Day.  Start lining up your guests for our Labor Day weekend now, and get a jump on winning the September Recruiting Trophy!  Our goal is to increase the membership of this club by 20% this coming year, and I believe that is a worthy, attainable goal.  

Thank you to those who attended the Summer Sailstice event!
Gus Chennells, Rear Commodore
