From The Helm


Hello Everyone

Our boating season fortunately is starting to wind down with probably another three more weeks or more I am sure we’re all going to make the best out of it.
I would like you all to Welcome David Staunton our Newest member from Canada.   Dave Stanton was an active member on Sun Parlour Boat Club at board level. I’m sure you will all meet him once we can cross the border. We always welcome New Members.  This is the Best way to meet so many people and friends in the boating community.   If you are interested in joining our club I can be emailed at
This month for those who would like to be active into the club we have a nomination meeting on September 21st at 7 p.m. at our clubhouse Smokies on the water on Grosse Ile.
Every Thursday is live bands at Smokies on the water come on out and enjoy the camaraderie .
Can’t wait to cross the border and start where we left off.
See you soon

2020 Commodore Keith Postma

From Amidship


September has arrived. Still, not much has changed. The Covid 19 restrictions are still in place. Our Commodore Keith is still stuck across the border. Unfortunately our Club calendar has been a casuality of the Covid situation. Most all activities have been cancelled. It is certainly a year we will not soon forget and we are all hopeful that 2021 will be better.

September is a big month for WRYCC. It is our year to host one of the monthly AYC meetings. We will host the September 2020 meeting on Monday September 28th at Smokies. Each AYC club is responsible for hosting a meeting every 3rd year.

Even though it has been a challenging year there is still a bit of boating to be done. September is one of the best boating months of the season. Warm days and cooler nights are perfect for getting out on our waterways. Don’t pull those boats just yet.

September is a big month for our Club. Nominations to fill several positions will be open. If you have ever wanted to serve on the Board this is a great time to consider accepting a nomination to one of the positions up for election. Open for nominations are the following positions: Secretary, Treasurer, Member at Large, Fleet Captain and Rear Commodore. If you are nominated consider stepping up to serve. It is a rewarding experience.

I have started my Cooler of Cheer fundraiser for the 2021 Commodores Ball. There are 100 tickets printed at $20 each. Winning ticket will be drawn when all tickets are sold. I have tickets and could use your help getting them sold. I could also use donations of liquor to place in the cooler for the eventual winner.

I could also use some help planning and finalizing the plans for our Commodores ball currently scheduled for Saturday January 9, 2021 at Arnaldos. If you would like to serve on the Ball Committee please let me know. Of course how the Covid situation plays out could have bearing on how and when the Ball occurs.

Until next month, hang in there, we are all in this together. See you at the September membership meeting at Smokies.

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately I do not have much to report on at this time.  Most Commodore Receptions have been cancelled or limited to invite only.  I did have the pleasure of attending Sun Seekers Commodore Reception.  It was a beautiful event and fun to be able to see a few people.

I have been working on a fundraising idea for the club since we have not been able to host our Texas Holdem Events.  We are just waiting on final approval from the Township to go forward with it. Hopefully we will know something this month.

See you at the next membership meeting September 21st at Smokies (our new home).
