March statements from Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club have been made available via email. In that email you have the option to pay your statement, at home or on your phone, without any extra handling charges. Since rolling out the new payments system, our A/R has dropped by 50%, which is an Intuit Giant lift for our club's activities.
Please join me in a special shout out and thanks to our Treasurer, Laura, our Accountant, Suzanne, and our Accounting Consultant, Carol for putting in some very long hours to make this happen! Salute!
If you didn't get yours, feel free to reach out to me and we'll get your email address corrected, pronto.
In 1998, Chris Favors replaced a short-lived, rudimentary, single webpage created by a former member with a fully-fleshed out website, thus legitimately launching DCYC forward into the still burgeoning World Wide Web. For twelve years and after a seemingly endless amount of HTML coding, he moved the needle again in 2010 when he relaunched the site in the Wild Apricot platform, an option that allowed for multiple administrators and event management. Fast-forward to 2017 when, with the future of the club firmly in mind, James Hankins and Jeff Ellefson included in their budget proposal a few thousand dollars for “working on the website and social media.” Today, we are officially unveiling the fruits of that investment.
We are all painfully aware of how fast technology is moving, but it’s with a great deal of pride that we can make the claim that today’s site will serve the club for several years to come.
Efforts like this always represent a colossal team effort. When we committed to having a professional website developer rework the site, we pulled together a team to help guide the stylistic and organizational choices being made; this committee gave terrific feedback on the site and made excellent suggestions things they would like to see added, many of which we still hope to incorporate in the future. Our sincere thanks to Barbara Hoskins, Kim Dickey,Heather Fahle, Kendra Favors, Kathy Harden, and Lara Ruzevicfor sharing their time, energy, and unflagging patience.
Of course, the MergeCreative team has performed nothing short of brilliantly. The work they put into the website far exceeded what their contract dictated. These guys epitomize the under-promise, over-deliver ethic. If you appreciate this update, please consider thanking them with a quick five-star ranking in their Google listing.

If you have any questions or feedback about the website, I am happy to help.

Winter is not gone and there is a chance of cold weather coming our way over the next couple of months.
* You must winterize your boat soon. This process is different, depending on the boat type and conditions. Basically, it means eliminating or controlling any water in the boat/engine.
Depending on your boat, this likely includes:
* Remember you MUST NOT depend solely on dock-based electrical power for heaters/warmers. Every year the club experiences outages and these sometimes last more than a day.
I am pleased to announce that all docks are now accessible from the shore.
Nice weather for next several days. Please come out to check on your boat.
