2015 Membership Meetings 

We have a new home for all of the 2015 Membership meetings. All of the 2015 meetings will be held at Round Table Pizza, 2793 East Bidwell in Folsom. They have a good size room with a 45 person capacity and good food options making life easier for our wonderful hospitality director. Start sending in your ideas for guest speakers, I know a few people took some interesting sailing trips recently to Baja and the BVI's which would be fun topics to share.

Let Us Know! 

One of this issues the club faces when putting on an event is knowing how many people might attend.

A perfect example of this is the Steele Cup regatta scheduled for 8/16.  We might get 5 banshees or 25 (ok, maybe 15).  And we might get 3 Lido 14's or we might get a whole bunch.  We really don't know.  And not knowing makes it very difficult to plan.  How much food & drinks do we bring for the potluck?  How many (expensive) trophies do we need to purchase?

To help us figure these things out, the website now has a new feature which I call Let Us Know!

You can get to it from the FLYC home page (look at the left column) or the events page (look at the top).  When you get to it, you will be able to select an event and indicate that you are planning to attend, and you can also see who else has said they are planning to attend.  Just enter your name (or to be sneaky, your initials) and your boat type (if its sailing event) and then click on the button.  The list will be instantly updated any your entry will be at the bottom.

Just to be clear, you are NOT committing to be there rain or shine.  Nobody will hold it against you if you do not come.  It's just a way for us to gauge how many people might be attending the event.

Let us know what you think about this feature, and if you have any suggestions to make it better.

New Kayot Policy 

We have a new club policy when operating the Kayot.

The Kayot MUST be backed entirely out of the fairway and not turned until it is well clear of all other vessels in the marina basin. 

If you are not comfortable operating the Kayot, please let the Vice Commodore know well in advance of your assigned RC date.  You can be given instructions or another operator can be found.

Thank You!

Welcome to the new FLYC.org! 

As you can see, things have changed just a little!

One of the big new features is the Discussion area and the Classified ads. Anyone can read these forums, but to post you will have to register for an account.

Another new feature (sort of) are the E-mail Subscription Lists. In the past, most of the mailing lists have been various lists of email addresses. This has worked OK for the most part, but there have been issues with people having different lists and others wanting off or on the list (if they knew about them). These email lists were also technically illegal (since there was no 'unsubscribe' link). Now, each person can add themselves to any or all of the lists. All messages will include an 'unsubscribe' link. Note that you do not have to register on the website to subscribe to any of the lists (though if you do, you will automatically be subscribed to the 'General FLYC Information' list).

The current FLYC mailing list (that was on the old website) will be going away and replaced by the 'General FLYC Information'. I'll be sending out a message on that list to encourage everyone to signup on the new list (I do not plan to automatically sign you up!).

A word about registering on the new site. Right now, I have it configured that I have to approve each person before they have access to the features which require registration. This is to keep spammers out. But because of this, there might be a delay before you actually get approved.

Finally, I've created a thread in the Discussions area called 'Website Issues and Suggestions'. If you run into a problem or have a suggestion, post it here. I'll fix the problems as fast as I can, and make a list of the suggestions to work on when I have time.

Enjoy the new site!
