It doesn’t have to be a “Job”!
Planning events can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. We all do this, from a simple phone call; “We’re having dinner at the club, want to join us?” to sitting down over coffee to plan a vacation cruise with a few friends, to putting together a party that will include 50. VYC Activities cover the same range. This section is a resource to help our activity hosts.
On Monday Morning January 23, at 9:30, all previous volunteers, future volunteers, and wantabe volunteers are invited to an informal "thank you" at the club. Randy Hough, the VYC Rear Commodore, will treat you to a cup of coffee or juice while you have a chance to talk about all of our upcoming activities.
As Rear Commodore, Randy holds the responsibility of head cheerleader what's in-charge of all volunteer activities, and he would like to hear feedback and ideas from everyone. Other VYC members who are chairing volunteer events will be there as well. This will be an excellent time to discuss responsibilities of various positions and to ask all of your questions.
More than just a Race Committee!
Many On The Water (OTW) events VYC hosts are in a race or regatta format, and the Race Committee is central to that. But OTW support is more than just the Race Committee, much more.
No one person can run a good race or series. It takes a good team. Each member of the OTW Crew has an important role to play. When you become part of the crew you eat drink and breathe TEAM. Focus on your role (what you enjoy) and keep an eye out for the needs of the rest of the crew.
