Thursday Night Power Boaters Events have started with the kick off of Spaghetti Night, which was very well attended with over 55 participants. It was good to see so many new members come to enjoy the evening and get to know other club members. There was a nautical word game, good spaghetti and plenty of desserts for all! In the upcoming weeks, mark your calendars and come enjoy the chili dump/ flare shoot, May 29th. And, we added another event on June 5th… Caribbean night, featuring rum drinks, and Caribbean food. Watch for further information in your email.
A special thanks to the grill team (Scott Burke, Scott Lawrie, Gary Johnson) for stepping up on Sunday to serve brats to over 45 new prospective members at the SSYC Open House. We are lining up the grill team for the upcoming events: Review of the fleet/Pig Roast (June 7th), the SSYC/LMYA Open House (July 5-6), the Fish on/Fish off (July 26), Corn Roast (August 9), and Big Brothers/Big Sisters (August 23). We need our SSYC Red Apron Grill Team members to volunteer in helping with these events, so give me a call to sign up.
And, to update you on the SSYC/LMYA Open House… invitation letters were sent out to LMYA members and yacht clubs via mail and these same letters will be emailed to SSYC members this week. Watch for your letter, as it will contain a list of various activities and events taking place. The SSYC/LMYA open house is the the first weekend in July… July 3 thru 6th.
