Pre-2005 Made by "Hand" Photos

JR Hand has been a member of the PLYC for over 30 years (we wont say exactly how long as his continued support is needed...) In those years his camera has been very active, capturing many of the best moments on our lake. Click on the link to view his photo archive and some other photos.

PLYC ScrapBook Photos (under construction)

Since the beginning of the PLYC story, Ann McBride, wife of Daniel McBride one of the charter members, kept a scrapbook. That scrap book details the sailing and social functions on Portage Lakes from 1936 through to 1983, providing a very unique perspective of the Turkeyfoot Island Club, and the evolution of the Snipe and Interlake One Design sailing classes.
