Dear Members of Back Creek Yacht Club (BCYC) South,
As we near the end of the 2022/2023 Winter Season, I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude for your continued support and membership. BCYC South was once merely a thought, but with Madi's visionary leadership and unwavering dedication, it has grown into a thriving entity in its own right.
I am thrilled to report that 36 active BCYC South members, including Higginbothams, Kranzers, Lovings, Masons, Crowders, Falks, Soucy, Brownings, Martins, Sangers, Wilsons, Jamie and John, John and Jo, Bob and Vickie, Eileen, Harriet, Collins, Yates, and our newest members, the Duggans, with many participating in most of our 10 South events. This level of engagement demonstrates our members' commitment to our club and their eagerness to participate in its activities.
As a backbone of BCYC South, the Wild Apricot hosted website provides us with essential communication tools, revenue collection services, and public-facing images and event pages that enhance our membership experience. These functions add value to our club and serve as social glue that helps us stay connected and grow stronger as a community. Our growing virtual yacht club has been a great success, as demonstrated by the success of our events.
I am reminded of the pilots who, after a successful flight, thank passengers for choosing their airline by announcing on the cabin intercom, "Thank you for flying with United. We know you have a choice, so thank you for selecting us to be your carrier." As Commodore of BCYC, I extend similar gratitude to each and every one of our members, thanking you for choosing BCYC and BCYC South to be your yacht club.
As we continue to grow and expand, I am excited for the future of our club and look forward to seeing more members participate in our events and contribute to the success of our community. Thank you again for your support, and I wish you all fair winds and smooth sailing as we head "up the creek" together.
