October 28-29 - ILYA Board meeting and ILYA Fall Inland    - Harken Headquarters  
10:00 Harken opens

1 - Committee Meetings 
  • Committee meetings - if your committee needs a work space, reserve with Dave Berg and LUNCH IS ON US! Assemble your team and begin the 2018 planning session. 
  • Regatta Coordinating - if you are hosting an ILYA event in 2018, please plan to attend to review the Regatta Manual with Dave Berg. Financials, Facebook and other social media, trophies, registration: Dave discusses it all. Send your regatta chair and perhaps your treasurer or Commodore. 
2 - Need information? This is for you!
Whether it is sailing school-related, problems with insurance, bar management, class-associated, the ILYA will find an expert to meet with you. Send us your topic of discussion by October 10th and we will find an expert or two to meet with you regarding your individual concerns.  
Lunch - all are welcome and free. We need a count of those who will be attending the AM sessions to provide lunch. Register online starting next week by October 20th or contact dberg@ilya.org.

1:00 -5:00 Scuttlebutt has already alerted the nation to our afternoon session on the Return to Corinthian Sailing. A panel discussion with youth, adult, RC and coach representation will open the discourse. Your audience input is essential. The panel will help identify the problem with examples,you will determine the need for action and create an action plan to get us all back on our game.  A concerted effort will be made to solidify our expectations and implementation of procedures to assure the most sportsmanlike behavior for ALL OUR FLEETS. In many ways, this begins at home and in our sailing schools. Clubs, please designate someone or several from your club to participate in this discussion. Together we can determine a path to assure we maintain our high expectation of Corinthian sailing on the waters of Inland lakes.

NNN Beulah C Challenge  
Porter/Welscher have homelake advantage 
 A perfect regatta - in the eyes of some. Hot, no wind day on Saturday so no racing but then it was fun all day. Friends winding down for the year with free beer, a lake to swim in, air-conditioned building. Someone made them lunch and dinner even though they did not sail. Quite a nice day actually. But then PRO Larry Krause got wind on Sunday. He ran three of the most beautiful short races on Sunday morning to meet the deadline. It was a most unusual direction for Beulah but he handled it magnificently. In the end, the racing was tight. A point between the top three leaders and two brothers battling it out in the crowd. Eight youth sailors brought boats and sailed for free. Thanks to NCSSA and a Beulah donor for the free opportunity.

While the editor was viewing material for this edition, the trophies above caught her eye. While the photo is not good quality, the trophies are outstanding. The E's in action photo is set in acrylic as well as the E class logo. Both designs are magnificent which provided Scowlines with an opportunity to share ideas with you for your 2018 season.

History of Calhoun Yacht Club  
Digital Edition
New contribution to Minnesota Reflections:
Calhoun Yacht Club
News by Greta Bahnemann published in Minnesota Digital Library:
Minnesota Reflections announces that the illustrated history of Calhoun 
Yacht Club (CYC), a yacht club first formally organized in 1901, is now available online for general review and historical research. This project is made available by the Minnesota Digital Library, a service of Minitex, funded with a grant by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund of the Minnesota Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment to the Minnesota Constitution via the Minnesota Historical Society.     
The CYC history project has been made available also with special thanks 
for encouragement and support supplied by the devoted working staff at 
Minnesota Reflections. Gary Reiter, Kathy Drozd, Bruce Reiter, Steve Woldum and Tom Weigel have worked together over the last three years to compile and create this permanent, online record of the history of Calhoun Yacht Club.  This history has been compiled and documented primarily through the efforts of Gary Reiter and Kathy Drozd, with Kathy writing needed metadata documentation for each illustration.  Historical photographs depicting the very early days of CYC have been generously supplied through the Reiter Family Archives.  Many thanks also go to members of Calhoun Yacht Club, former family members of CYC, and the extremely supportive and enthusiastic members and friends of CYC from yacht clubs in and around the Twin Cities. 
We hope you enjoy what we believe to be the only, or one of a very few, 
yacht club's history to be placed online and made generally and permanently available.
