Message from the Entertainment Deck:
SOCIAL DIRECTOR: DANIA WHITCO

DANIA WHITCO Hello to all PIYC members, My name is Dania Whitco. I have been elected as your 2016 Social Director.

My husband Denis and I have lived on the Island for six years. We joined the PIYC in July and are having a great time meeting and making new friends at the club.

I am a retired school teacher and Denis is retired Navy/ full time Risk Control Consultant for Higginbotham Insurance. Denis and I travel all over Texas for his work but we are home more than away.

I am looking forward to planning and helping with a lot of fun activities as Social Director. Please remember that even if I do have some good ideas for events your ideas are always welcome and the more the merrier. Feel free to call me and we will put our heads together to plan the event you have in mind.

My goals for 2016 are to have a very fun filled year helping everyone to enjoy our club and all of the social events old and new for this year." Remember the more the merrier!"Thank You...... Dania Whitco

Ahoy one and all. The commodore and board have expressed a desire for more cruise participation in 2016. To that end, we have charted a selection of both large boat and small boat cruises. We have come up with a few new themed cruises as well as recommending participation in most of the traditional cruise venues that we all know and love. Hopefully, Mother Nature will let her sun shine through and the weather and seas will cooperate. Cruise events are participatory and like social events they need to be planned, hosted, and attended to be successful. To that end, I will be soliciting volunteers to host and plan various cruises throughout the year. We thank you in advance for all the help and support we know we will receive. We look forward to serving you during the year. See you around the club, the island, on cruises, or wherever (like H.E.B.).

DOUG SEEFELDT

Hello all, Iím excited for 2016 and the adventure it will be. Iím looking forward to a year with more time on the water along with our shore side events. Iíll be working with the Board and you the members as we strive to keep our facilities up to date and looking good.
The year 2016 is a big milestone for the Padre Island Yacht Club as we celebrate 30 years. Itís exciting that we have charter members from 1986 and the fun stories they share from the early days of the club. We have members that helped start the club to members that are brand new and the greatest part is that we all have fun together. I challenge all our members to get involved as much as you can this year in supporting and enjoying your club.
I love to meet new people, so if youíre looking into the Padre Island Yacht Club come on by for a visit, itís a great place and lots of fun!


Thank you,

Doug Seefeldt


The Vice Commodore's Message from the Wheelhouse:
BUTCH SMITH

BUTCH SMITH

Hello everyone, I am honored to serve as your Vice Commodore this year. As you know this is all new to me, however I am looking forward to the challenge and will strive to do my best for the betterment of the PIYC and all its members.

I am blessed to have JoAnn my lovely wife at my side. She is such a great sidekick, supporter, and confidant who continues to keep me on task and pointed in the right direction.

This year we will continue to do what we can with the finances we have to keep our facility in tip top shape. I understand our top concerns are: The Parking lot, The Clubhouse floors, and the Dock area.

Call or e-mail me at (361) 815-7431, texascsm@hotmail.com  with any issues you might have with anything from the front gate to the bulk head. Please let me know your thoughts and concerns so we can make our facility more efficient and pleasant to enjoy by all.

See you all at work days, special event, and Friday night happy hours at our Wheelhouse.
At your service,
Butch

The Purser's Ledger:
TREASURER, GAYLOR HEEMINK

I am back as Treasure again and typically just an e-mail away. This will be my fifth stint as Treasurer. The job includes keeping the Purserís Ledger or more formally keeping the Ledger of Pursers Accounts. The Clubís ledger is kept in QuickBooks Pro 2013. The job is mainly to pay bills, collect money and make reports

One of the Treasurerís functions is to send dues statements to the membership and to receive record and deposit those dues in a timely fashion. Membership dues are gratefully received by the 15th of the month and are really gratefully received by the end of the month (although really nice by the 15th). We all know the rest of the story, arrear notices, late fees and so fourth.

A toast to the new and the seasoned members of PIYC: Keep the pointy end forward, the wet part in the water and let the warm wind on you back not be your own.
