Port Madison Yacht Club
Club Events and COVID-19
This week Governor Jay Inslee extended the state of emergency to all Washington counties and prohibited “any number of people from gathering in any public venue” until March 31st. Proclamation 20-13 states that this includes “social clubs, private clubs, golf clubs, [and] tennis clubs.” Considering these developments, we will be changing the following events and activities:
No Work Parties; Individual Work Credits
Until further notice, we will not be holding club work parties. For anyone who wants to earn work party credits during this moratorium, we will email and post on the club’s website a list of jobs and instructions on how to self-report to our work party managers the jobs you select and complete.
Limited Clubhouse Use
Until further notice, use the clubhouse at your own risk but do not hold any gatherings there. We do plan on having work party credits for cleaning the clubhouse, but please be particularly conscientious about cleaning all surfaces, doorknobs, utensils, etc. before and after using them, and do not visit the clubhouse if you are ill.
Easter Party Cancelled
Considering the nature of the Easter party, we will be cancelling it this year. Our fearless Vice Commodore Lindsey Lind is crestfallen that she will not be able to wear the bunny suit this year, but have no doubt she will persevere (and resume the role in 2021).
Best wishes to all.
Commodore Michael Sydor
