Monday March 16: Coronavirus update - Scatchet Head Race canceled

16 Mar 2020 4:18 PM | Anonymous

CYC Members,

Following the evolving news over the weekend and guidance from public health officials we have made the difficult decisions to:

  • Cancel Scatchet Head Race (3/21)
  • Cancel Scatchet Head Race after party
  • Suspend until further notice social events at the clubhouse
  • Suspend until further notice our high school racing program
  • Staff are working from home and the clubhouse is closed to group gatherings at this time 

Many of us are processing this news in real time and with mixed emotions, getting out on the water and participating in the sport we love with friends and family is something we would all rather be doing. We will continue to adhere to guidance from our public health officials and look forward to resuming operations at the right time.

As a non-profit that is mission based we also plan our budget and operations out well in advance and have limited flexibility to respond to and absorb events of this magnitude. If you are willing and able to consider your registration for races or social events as a donation to help support the club's operations during this difficult time that would be greatly appreciated and that is what I am going to do. This is a inline with requests coming from other non-profits to their members. If you would like a refund we respect that as well and will process it for you, please contact the office.

Our goal is to resume racing, events, and operations as soon as safe and practical. We will provide an update on the status of the upcoming Three Tree Point Race by Monday, March 23rd. We appreciate your understanding during these difficult times. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any of us directly.

Take care everyone we look forward to seeing you all as soon as feasible. 

Best -
