THE CLUB HOUSE
The House Committee has planned for a social gathering every Saturday afternoon during the racing season, at which time tea will be served on the Club House veranda. Various ladies of the Club will act on the different afternoons as hostesses.
The situation of the Club House and the bath houses make it an excellent place for swimming. The dock has been provided with a diving board which will add greatly to the enjoyment of the water. ·
It is hoped that a photograph album may be started to contain pictures of the Yacht Club activities, races, members’ boats, etc. Members are asked to donate pictures.
A Victrola and new records have been obtained by subscription to add to the attract ions of the Club House
The Regatta Committee expects to make the season of 1921 one of the best in the history of the Club.
The usual Saturday races will be held during July and August. It is hoped that these races will be even more largely attended than last summer. It is planned to have the races on Saturday afternoons.
Several interesting events are being planned for the 4th of July, which will mark the opening of the racing season.
A perpetual trophy has been presented to the Club by Dr. Guy Carleton Lee for annual handicap sailing races over the Chippewa Yacht Club course. These races will be open to all sailboats whose owners are members of organized yacht clubs. The races for the cup this year will probably be held during the week ending August 6th.
The Annual Regatta will be replaced this year by a race-week to be held during the week ending August 20th. Races and water sports of all kinds will be included in the events of this week.
A winding, well-shaded path leads from the Club House to the tennis court, on the opposite side of the island. This court was originally accurately graded and fully enclosed by the owners of Wyanoke, and was recognized as one of the best courts in the Chippewa Bay region. Through the kindness of Mrs. Orcutt, this court has been included in the lease to the Chippewa Yacht Club, and it will be used , during the season of 1921, as a Club court. The management of the Club has had the court resurfaced and put in first-class condition.
Tennis privileges arc extended to al l members of the Chippewa Yacht Club. The Tennis’ Committee urges all interested in the game to make full and frequent use of the court.
