A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMODORE

May 22, 2020

We hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather.

The washrooms opened this morning and will be cleaned twice daily. The shower trailer will remain closed.

Commodore Gerry Andrusyk has asked that all members, even though it looks like our boating season is finally starting, there are still a number of things to keep in mind. And along with all of the new phrases that are now a part of our conversations, we have made up our own – “Social Distancing Boating”. These are things to keep in mind to ensure safety for all:

  • Practice frequent handwashing or in the absence of facilities for that, please use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
  • Remember to maintain a distance of 2 meters (six feet) between you and those you encounter;
  • We are still provincially limited to groups of no more than 5 (five) people if not from the same home;
  • No large gatherings allowed on your boats or in your gazebos;
  • The playground remains off limits;
  • The pavilion is off limits, but there is access to the defibrillator should it be required;
  • Face masks, although not mandatory, are recommended if you are going to be wandering around the property, particularly if your daily lives have you out in the public;
  • If you are not feeling well, please stay home.

Although there is nothing the GNBC can do to enforce the social distancing rules, we recommend not travelling to the boat club with someone not from your household. We have heard of fines of $750 being levied in the community.

I know this can all seem quite tedious, but the continued safety and health of our members, along with the ability to enjoy our boats is paramount.

Sincerly,
Commodore Gerry Andrusyk
