2017 RLWYC Season

The sun has set on the 2017 RLWYC season. It went out with a bang…thunderstorms at Royal Hour! However, there were over 70 in attendance, many staying on to enjoy a roaring fire and each others company well into the night.

The staff have all left for the season and I will be wrapping up the administrative end of things. Final account statements will be sent out this Thursday or Friday. I would sincerely appreciate timely settlement. The Club has been shut down and the year-round phone number to use is (807) 700-0400. I receive an email transcript of all messages left and will be sure to return your call. Club email addresses are monitored through the off season as well.

Watch your inbox this month for details on the AGM which will be held in early December in Winnipeg. I hope many of you are able to attend.

It has been privilege to serve as Commodore. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my fellow Executive members, all of the event chairs & volunteers, the staff and of course all of our incredible members. We make a great village.

I will be in touch with news and updates of interest to the membership over the winter, but for now folks, that’s a wrap!
