- Welcome to the New HYC website April 26, 2013
Over the past few years our club has seen many changes in most part thanks to our fantastic committee and membership. One of these is a new modern website it will improve HYC’s web presents and security to members personal information. Any financial members can register and will be granted access to the members’ area. Over the next week as membership to the site grows I will post tips on how to get the most for our new site. I would love to hear your feedback.
- The New Tractor is Ready April 9, 2013
The tractor is finally ready for all members to use after they have completed the VOC (verification of competency) Do not use the tractor unless you have done the VOC Please contact Glen or Kevin to ‘obtain your’ VOC for the tractor.
There will be sessions on Friday afternoon and Saturdays throughout the month of April and then the old tractor will be removed at the end of April. Some members have already done their VOC and a list will be provided of those who have and updated weekly. The tractor has a lot more electrical bits and pieces and is not to be driven into the water. If the reach of the tow ball is not enough, please modify your trailer. Rear wheels’ just kissing the water is maximum.
The new winch is fully operational so please take care using it and do not abuse it and have the engine running when using it. Please notify me if you find anything wrong or needs fixing.
