2019 Winter Commodore's Letter
Published on: 1/3/2019
Happy New Year to all of you from the Whitefish Chain Yacht Club. After a somewhat brown December the snow has arrived to provide opportunities for winter recreation in our beautiful area. Last year I wrote about developing a better working relationship with other non-profits that support our lakes and community and I am happy to report that we have already made great strides in this initiative and are continuing to work on this to promote safety on the water.

Whitefish Chain Yacht Club introduces lighted buoy initiative.
Published on: 10/13/2018
Commodore John Pribyl introduced a new initiative to raise funds from members and visitors so that all buoys in the Whitefish Chain of Lakes are lighted.

"We received $1,000 from Jesse and Rich Eide of Moonlite Bay Restaurant, from the cardboard boat races in August. We are using these funds to kick-start our fundraising to buy and retrofit our existing buoys to all being lighted to assist in nighttime navigation. Our objective is to raise $10,000 from our community so that the WCYC can continue to promote water safety by providing these buoys in the chain," Pribyl said.

The WCYC will match individual contributions up to a total of $10,000.
