This past month was a busy one at CYC starting off with our Labor Day celebration at the Gazebo along with the Baywater Animal Rescue Fundraiser, which was a great success for them and for us as well. Other activities included Thursday evening croquet (thank you Dottie) with live music, a rehearsal dinner and a wedding. The Gazebo has remained busy on Sunday afternoons. However, please note, hours have been changed to 3PM-7PM as the days are getting shorter and will be open as long as the weather permits!
Please welcome new members: Trevor Carouge (Anastatia Spear), Lisa and Robert Wagoner (Karen Bowers), Jeff Parenteau (Karen Bowers) and reinstatement: Graham Slaughter (Georgie Feldman). Our membership is now 416; let’s keep it going!
There are a number of events on the schedule for October so plan accordingly and be sure to check your calendars. Please remember that Ironman Triathlon is in town with the race going past our door on October 7. We will be open, serving breakfast, lunch and a limited menu dinner. Once again, we are the venue for the Choptank River Lighthouse Fundraiser on October 14. Tickets are still available for purchase at $50/pp. Visit email@example.com for more info. On the 21st, we have a luncheon for the Chesapeake Cruising Club, and an engagement party/BBQ. Halloween falls on a Tuesday, members’ social, so come out in your best costume and have a ghoulish good time!
Election Night is on November 4th and Chef Greg will have a special menu. We have a great slate so be sure to come out and vote! Join us for cocktails and appetizers and get to know your fellow members!
I would like to thank member Tom Scott of Tuckahoe Flooring for redoing the floor in the wait station. This is not something that most of you would ever see but necessary to keep us in compliance with the health department.
While I am thanking folks for helping out, a big thank you goes out to Dottie Holoubek and Steve Adams, Bill and Sue Lachenmayr, Branden Spear, Trevor Carouge, Cheryl Hannan, Bob Moffatt and Bill Clyde who gave up a Sunday for a work day at the club. We were able to get the Junior Sail boats and equipment put away for the season along with a few other club chores. On very short notice, Dottie, Steve, Branden and Tom Hannan met me at the club on a Saturday to move and install the television in the Gazebo…thanks, gang! Comcast even cooperated. There is always something to be done!
In case you missed the memo last month, the side door is now locked with a keypad. The code is 3435*
If you have not done so already, it is time to book those Holiday/Christmas parties. Linda and Chef Greg will be pleased to assist you.
AND, New Year’s Eve will be especially special this year as we are combining it with the Commodore’s Ball, aka, The Commodore’s “New Year’s Eve Black and White Ball.” We promise to keep the ceremony
short! To top it off, we have the fabulous “Bobby and the Believers Band.”
It has been wonderful these past few months seeing the bar and restaurant so busy. Please remember to make reservations so that we can serve you promptly and efficiently!
We have received a number of requests to be open this fall and winter in the lounge after the Gazebo closes for the season. The hours would be similar and very casual. Stand by for more info!
Thanks again for your continued support!
Best to all,
