CLUB

From the Helm Happy New Year! Lakewood is truly a world class yacht club. It's an honor to serve as your Commodore for 2014. Sue and I are looking forward to a great year. The first big event is the Commodore’s Ball on January 25th. We hope to see you all there. Before we go further, I want to thank the Drechsels for all they have done. We saw a number of improvements last year and the projects that are being planned for 2014 were identified in Carl’s Strategic Planning initiative last year. And, Sandy has worked tirelessly behind the scenes in many different areas. Together they have been a very productive team to Lakewood’s benefit. Looking forward, by the time you read this we should be closed on our new loan. Our Finance Committee of Ash Walker and Alan Hill did an incredible job negotiating a 4%, 10-year deal with very favorable terms. They deserve a lot of credit for helping to keep Lakewood in a strong financial condition. You should see the projects that were discussed at the annual meeting begin to move forward. Contrary to a recent rumor, the dirt work in the green

space is not for the foundation of a new clubhouse. The old dredge spoils are being moved to make room for some additional dredging. We do anticipate beginning the work to refurbish G dock in January. The reconstruction of B shed should start by the end of the month. This all is contingent upon getting the details of these projects to the Board for final approval. Both General Manager Terry Chapman and the Planning Committee are working hard to make that happen. The intent is to get what we can completed before the Blessing at the end of March. Those are some of the priorities of Management and the Board. For everybody else, our first priority should be to have fun with our friends. We have a wonderful club that we need to enjoy. As you all know, we have a very diverse membership. I truly hope that we can provide something for everyone. The first part of the year looks busy already. In January we have the Seahorse Banquet and the Commodore’s Ball. In February, our cruisers are going to Pelican Rest in Galveston for Mardi Gras and Kim Bettis has a Family Mardi Gras Party planned as

well. In March the racing season begins with Bay Cup I, followed by the J-105 Mid Winters, and at the end of the month comes the Blessing of the Fleet. The Seahorses begin the TSA Regattas in February, but then they are busy all of the time. This doesn’t include the plans that Entertainment CoChairs Candace McCoin and Fran Bass are making. They have mentioned, among other things, rotating dock parties when the weather starts to warm up. Watch for details because these two know how to have a party. Those are just a few of the highlights of the first quarter, but you begin to get the idea that this will indeed be a busy year. It should be a year that everyone will enjoy. If you have any suggestions, just let us know. And one last thing, I am available to talk about Lakewood any time. I want to hear your thoughts. If you have something on your mind, call me or better yet, email me at Tom@ LYC2014.com.

On The Water CRUISE

COMMITTEE

The difference between cruising and yachting: cruising is for the enjoyment of the journey and yachting is for the enjoyment of the destination. Thanks to Steve and Marisa Hegyesi’s leadership the past two years, we are now in the enviable position of trying to combine the best of both worlds in 2014. We have Mike Downs onboard with his Blueberry & Pecan pancakes that have already become a Lakewood tradition, Steve and Marisa only think they are retiring, Steve will continue leading cruises and we will not lose their synergy. Austin Allen and Duane Guidry will be leading the younger Lakewood members on a “Cruise with the Kids” and we will have more impromptu, dinner and overnight cruises to Houston Yacht Club. The selection of Rodney Tow for beverage director was a given, you can’t buy that kind of experience. As you can see, this coming year, we have a team of Cruise Committee members throwing their shoulder to the wheel in an effort to

enhance your 2014 cruising experience. The Cruise Committee mission for 2014 will be to provide a casual destination experience that will exceed the normal marina expectations. There are no requirements to join the Cruise Committee, other than membership at LYC. Simply send an e-mail to randy-allen@comcast.net with your name and e-mail address; this will ensure that you receive the latest e-mailed cruising communications. Also include your cell phone number & boat name, length, manufacturer, power or sail, to be used for contact and identification purposes in an emergency situation. The LYC Cruise Committee is dedicated to fostering seamanship, camaraderie, and friendship among the club members, with an active interest in exploring the Texas coastal waters. We hope you will join us.

EMERALD

COAST

Thanks to Jim Winton for getting the planning well under way for the Emerald Coast Regatta, the semi-annual eastbound offshore race. As he moves on to Fleet Captain, I’ll take over as chair of the committee for 2014. Next year’s race will be from Galveston to Pensacola over Memorial Day weekend, with races beginning Friday afternoon, May 23, 2014. In addition to Lakewood, the race is co-sponsored by the Pensacola Yacht Club and Galveston Bay Cruising Association. The motto for this race is Race, Stay and Play. Pensacola and the nearby coastline and bays of Florida and Alabama make a beautiful location for a sailing vacation. Sail up and down the coast offshore between inlets, or navigate the Intracoastal. Go West to Mobile Bay, Biloxi and Gulfport. Or keep going East to Panama City, down the peninsula to Tampa/St. Pete, or just keep sailing… The early registration / race kickoff party at Lakewood takes place Saturday, February 8. There will be a Safety & Navigation seminar on Saturday, March 29, and the Skipper’s meeting will be a

REGATTA

week before the start, on Friday, May 16. With boats starting on Friday and Saturday May 23 and 24, we’re confident all boats will finish by May 29. The Awards ceremony and banquet will follow on Friday evening, May 30, at the beautiful Pensacola Yacht Club on the Western shore of Pensacola Bay. http://www.pensacolayacht club.org/Home.aspx Pensacola Yacht Club has invited Emerald Coast Regatta sailors to join in the Cancer Cup Regatta the following Saturday, May 31, 2014. This is a unique opportunity to have fun sailing while raising funds to fight cancer. You can literally buy time: For every $10.00 donated to the American Cancer Society, 3 points are added to your PHRF handicap! The Notice of Race and other information is available on PYC’s website. So mark your calendar now and get your boat and crew ready to Race, Stay and Play.

On Land NOVEL DINING BOOK CLUB

GROWTH & RETENTION

Novel Dining Book Club invites you to join us on Thursday, January 9th, for interesting book talks, good friends, and scrumptious food. Our Book Club named “Novel Dining” comes from the fact that we always try to coordinate our dinner menu for the evening to the book under discussion that month. We meet in the Chart Room at 6:00 PM for drinks and socializing, with dinner and the book discussion beginning at 6:30 PM. Reservations are required. For our December meeting we read The Oleanders of San Leon by Andy Upchurch. Ronica & Jim Hall were the discussion leaders. As a special treat, we had Andy Upchurch with us to discuss his book. Due to the early publication deadline, I am not able to report on this, but will do so in my next article. For the January 9th Book Club we are reading Oxygen by Carol Cassella. Susan Allen will be the discussion leader. Oxygen opens with Marie Heaton, an anesthesiologist at the height of her medical ca-

What a great year 2013 was for our club! NOW is a great opportunity to welcome new members and have delightful times with new and old friends. Our committee’s mission is “to enhance, promote and develop programs designed to attract new members to LYC, as well as retain existing members.” A terrific way to meet people and share common interests is to join a committee. There are currently 30 committees (yes, 30). Log on to the LYC website, look under Club Info, Committees, and find a committee that interests you. Come to a committee meeting (the meeting time and dates are in the weekly Eletter), and you will be very welcomed. We want your help and good ideas. Hope to see you all at the Member Mixer the first Friday of the

reer, facing a nightmarish operating room disaster that ends a child’s life and launches a tangled malpractice suit. As Marie twists through depositions, accusations, and a remorseful preoccupation with the dead child’s mother, she must also cope with her own aging father and confront questions of love and betrayal, family bonds, and the price of her own choices. With a final twist as heartrending as it is redeeming, Oxygen is a gripping and auspicious debut. Even if you have not read the book, you are welcome to join the fun, lively group for dinner and discussion. Please call the club for reservations no later than 5:00 PM. on the Wednesday before the meeting.

Far more seemly were it for thee to have thy study full of books, than thy purse full of money. ~John Lyly

Remember to wear your nametag for a chance at an additional prize. Funny thing—since we moved our boat to Lakewood years ago, our deck and carpet does not have nasty bird “droppings,” that we used to walk in and track into the cockpit. The reason is—our dock masters, David, and now Cody, wash down the docks. We truly have the best marina in Texas! Teaser—the new calendar is loaded with fun. Watch next month’s column for exciting news!

In addition to these on-site classes for LYC Members, IPF offers additional classes at their studio, including Zumba classes on Mondays and Saturdays. If there is enough of

an interest, IPF will schedule additional classes at LYC. Register for any class that is offered from the LYC web site. At the top of the home page, click on “Fitness.” Then select “Schedule Now” for your class choice, place, and time. If you prefer, call or text 281694-4828. Each class is only $10/person and can be paid with cash or check at the beginning of class, or by credit card at their studio. If there is any other class or time you would like, please call or text 281-694-4828 with your request. What a great opportunity for our health to benefit and to have FUN.

LADIES

ASSOCIATION

Fun and festivities were on the calendar for the Lakewood ladies in December. The month began with Joy Edwards and her elves transforming the club into a holiday wonderland. The elaborate decorations provided a visual treat for visitors of all ages to Lakewood. Several days later the Ladies Association Board celebrated their successful year at a Board Appreciation luncheon in the foyer to the Ballroom. The Commodore expressed heart-felt thanks for all the hard work performed by the Ladies Association this year. Chef Cristy prepared a delicious luncheon of cream of asparagus soup, beef medallions on a winter salad, and a warm apple crumble – a perfect menu for a cold winter day. Outgoing President Rosemary Bettis thanked the Executive Board and Committee chairs for all their hard work and presented each member with a gift. The Board gave Rosemary a gift in gratitude for her leadership. Every year the Ladies Association gives the Club a gift and this year’s gift is actually two gifts: a new rug for the main entry into the clubhouse and a new rug for the foyer into the ballroom. The rugs were custom designed with nautical themes and should be ready sometime in the spring.

On Friday the 13th there was no bad luck when the ladies held their annual Christmas luncheon. The left-right-left-right game of passing a wrapped gift was a fun-filled way to share the fellowship of Christmas. Ladies Association activities in 2013 included participating in the Taste of Lakewood, a tour of wineries and shopping in Fredericksburg, sponsoring a booth at Keels and Wheels, sponsoring the Flag dinner, a cruise to HYC, a spectacular fashion show in September, a successful Feliz Navidad Market in November, an overnight trip to the Woodlands in November, several luncheons at the club and manning the Ship’s Store all year. It was a busy year and 2014 promises to be just as eventful. The year begins with the installation of the new President, Roz Clayton on January 17th in the ballroom at 11:30 AM. Every lady who is a member of Lakewood is automatically a member of the Ladies Association and we would love for you to join us at any or all of the events in 2014. Please consider making “Becoming More Active in the Lakewood Ladies Association” one of your New Year’s resolutions!

Barbara Gessner Secretary

A LOG FAREWELL TO SANDY DRECHSEL Through rain, wind and the bayou rising, Sandy Drechsel masterfully edited the Lakewood LOG for eight years. She and Immediate Past Commodore Carl joined Lakewood Yacht Club in 2005. She volunteered to be editor and felt that was a great way to meet people. Sandy says she is most proud of meeting the deadlines even with medical issues, family emergencies and events like Hurricanes Rita and Ike. She is most proud that the Lakewood Log has never been late, even when she and Carl were staying at the Hyatt Lost Pines near Bastrop during Hurricane Ike. Continuing

communications through disasters is definitely a focus that Sandy has learned is important living so close to the Gulf. Sandy has seen the Log increase from 12 to 20 pages, from a newsletter where all the Flag Officers wrote each month, to a Flag rotation system, and to an increase in pictures and articles. We talked about an electronic newsletter and additional social media for the Club. She praised Kim Bettis who successfully uses Facebook with the youth committee for LYC communications. Through these eight years, Sandy has not only worked as the

Log editor, but also is a strong force for the race committee serving as Land Activity Manager and Scorer from 2007-2012. Her support of the Flag and IPC Carl has been endless. Now, we are wondering what she plans to do. We asked her if she and Carl might sail around the world, captain the next America’s Cup or race in the Trans Pac. But Sandy says, no, she would like to take a course at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). Those who know Sandy, know what a great cook she is, and we are sure this will bring new ideas to

her kitchen talents. She also wants to spend more time spoiling her three grandchildren and traveling to her beloved Belize. What Sandy likes best about LYC is the way the Club is a family and when there is a problem, like Hurricane IKE, the wagons are circled and everyone pitches in to help. Lakewood members appreciate all that Sandy has done to support every member and every event. Thank you, Editor Sandy!

D AV I D F I N C H A M N A M E D FA CILITIES MANAGER

Upon the retirement of longtime staff member Gary Mathews at the end of 2013, former Dock Master David Fincham has been named the new Facilities Manager for Lakewood Yacht Club. Gary had been working full time for Lakewood since 1990 while David began his career at Lakewood in December of 2007. Although born in Houston, David actually grew up in Galveston and moved to Hitchcock while in the sixth grade. Upon graduation from Hitchcock High School, he worked as a mechanic for Todd Ship Yard in Galveston in the areas of barge construction and ship repair. After Todd closed, he went on to other fabrication shops where he was a quality control manager and production manager for building containers. In 1997, David established his own business, Fincham’s Marine which is a boat repair operation in the areas of mechanics, electrical

and plumbing. He met Lakewood’s Harbor Administrator Lynda Hall in 1996 and they have done several boat deliveries together through the years. Regarding his new position at Lakewood, David related that he is looking forward to continuing the good work that Gary has accomplished through the years. His first priority is having the grounds look beautiful so that members and guests have a wonderful first impression of the club. The second priority is to fix things as soon as possible if they are in need of repair. After living aboard at Marina Del Sol, David purchased a home in League City a few years ago. His hobby is radio controlled airplanes and he is a member of the Texas City Radio Control Club.

LAKEWOOD MEMBERS APPROVE M I L I TA R Y M E M B E R S H I P S Lakewood Yacht Club’s membership voted overwhelmingly at their Annual Meeting on Nov. 16 to approve a new military classification of membership. “Since we are a private, member-owned club, any changes in our by-laws require a vote of our Resident and Junior members,” explained Lakewood’s Immediate Past Commodore Carl Drechsel. With the expansion of personnel at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, veteran and Past Commodore Bob Fuller initiated the idea of a Military Membership and took it to the club’s Growth & Retention Committee last spring. It applies to an active duty U.S. Military and Coast Guard person serving for not less than 365 consecutive days. A proposal was created and sent this fall to the club’s Board of Directors where it was approved and then mailed to the membership for a vote. “We felt this was an opportunity

to recognize the growing military presence at Ellington Field and perhaps expand our membership with quality people serving in the military,” added PC Bob Fuller. “Having met with the Commanders of most of the Units at Ellington, the idea has been met with great enthusiasm. LTC Robert Lee Hefner of the U.S. Army’s 75th Training Command has been extremely helpful with introductions to the various Commands.” Fuller also noted that it is common for yacht clubs with a local military presence to have such a class of membership; Corpus Christi, San Diego, and Pensacola being prime examples. To learn more about the structure and cost of Lakewood’s Military Membership, please contact Marketing Director Marcy Fryday.

CODY BARTRO TAKES OVER SCUTTLEBUTT DOCK MASTER POSITION

Clear Lake area native Cody Bartro replaced David Fincham as Lakewood’s Dock Master on the first of January. David Fincham is replacing Facilities Manager Gary Mathews who retired the end of 2013. Cody was born and reared in Clear Lake City, attended Seabrook Intermediate because his mother was a teacher there, and then graduated from Clear Lake High School in 2005. An only child, Cody enjoyed the sports of football (mainly), baseball and basketball while in high school. Upon graduation, he played baseball at Northwood University, a private business university near Dallas, and earned a scholarship for the last two years he played there. Upon earning his Associate Degree at Northwood in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, Cody transferred to Texas State where he earned a B.S. in Agribusiness Management.

Cody’s working experience includes Clear Lake Parasail near the Nassau Bay Hilton where he worked for Dave Hearne. Moving to the hill country, Cody took a job as a dock hand at Canyon Lake Marina. He “worked his way up” to their party boat captain and became the Rental Manager under general manager Don King. During November and December of last year, Cody trained under David Fincham. “I just love it here at Lakewood; all the people are amazing,” related Cody. “It is a good feeling working in such a prestigious yacht club which is known for the longevity of its staff.” Cody added that he loves the marina industry because you get to work outside and meet all kinds of interesting people. “You can’t have a bad day when you look out and see the water and boats!” he exclaimed.

Since this Gertie has just assumed that name, this will be a rather short article this month but we promise to find out the latest scoops in the future. We hear that our Vice Commodore Joyce Maxwell and husband, Darold have finally gotten their transmissions rebuilt, their boat that is, and may be able to get it back to the club from Pt. Aransas. They had trouble leaving Port Aransas after Harvest Moon and turned back for repairs. I’m sure it will be good to get Moonshadow back home safe and sound. Sad news that our incredible Grounds Chairman, Barbara Duckworth lost her brother on Thanksgiving Day. Our thoughts and prayers are with her in this difficult time. News Flash: Bob Jordon must be Superman as we saw him at the member mixer having lots of fun. Word has it that he had one of his kidneys removed only a week before. Keep healing, Bob. If you see Jan Smith smiling all the time it’s because she just became a grandmother. After a diffi-

cult pregnancy, her daughter-in-law presented the family with a beautiful baby girl named Sophie. Her weight was only two pounds so she will have to remain in the hospital for awhile. We hear that Jan can’t stand being so far away and will be going to Florida to view her new granddaughter in the very near future. Bob and Sue Warters had a great time on a cruise from Florida to South Carolina. They were on the same boat that the Commodore’s Cruise used this year. There were no problems and they had a great trip. After the cruise, they spent Thanksgiving with their son, David and daughter-in-law, Shelly in Charleston. David is a doctor at the VA Hospital there and they live aboard their boat. Well, Gertie hopes to hear from you with the news of your holiday travel and parties and who was naughty and who was nice.
