Movie Night follow up
July 3, 2013

Dear Pleon Parents and Sailors,

Finally some nice breeze and weather! Let's hope this holds through the holiday weekend. I just wanted to write a quick note about Movie Night, Free Sail and a reminder about the 4th of July.

  • I've been hearing a lot about Movie Night last night. It seems the kids had fun but there were a couple of issues throughout the evening. Movie Night is run and supervised by Pleon's Junior Instructors who do their best to make it fun for all. We ask that when kids are dropped off for Movie Night that they stay in the club - no passing the mommy gate and no one on the docks or beach. Last night the Junior Instructors reported that many kids would not listen and kept running away.  If you could just help us in our effort to keep everyone present and accounted for by reminding your sailors of this rule we would greatly appreciate it. Eastern Yacht Club was also displeased by the large quantities of kids that were coming up to get free lollipops at the front desk and popcorn on the porch. I know that many of you are members but there are equally as many who are not. If you could remind your kids that going up to the Eastern during Movie Night is not allowed for ANYONE, member or not. Hopefully by the next Movie Night, all of these issues will have been ironed out! Thank you for your help with this.
  • Free Sail was a lot of fun this weekend! All in all everything went well. Just a few points about free sail.  Sonars are not available to use. Trapeze and spinnakers should only be used by sailors who have been taught to use them or are being assisted by a Junior Instructor. Improper use of this equipment is unsafe and spinnakers are torn easily if misused.
  • THERE ARE NO CLASSES TOMORROW FOR JULY 4TH however class WILL be held on Friday the 5th.
  • Lastly, our 420 coach Bianca lost her red trapeze harness and it says her name (Bianca Rom) in it. If you have seen it PLEASE let me know, she would like it back.

We hope everyone has a fantastic 4th of July!

Thank you,

Erin & Aidan
