This week at the EYC August 10-18

The summer season will go out with a bang with the Commodore’s Party on Saturday evening.  In addition to all the great unscheduled activities which go on every week at the EYC, like grilling, eating, imbibing, bridge, bunco, 4-square, swimming, sailing, kayaking, and just visiting with your friends, here’s what’s happening:

The EYC’S ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING begins at 9:00 AM on Saturday, August 10 in the EYC clubhouse.  If you are an EYC member, this is one of many ways that you can give your opinion on what you want the EYC to be.  At this meeting, voting members will elect four persons to the EYC’s Board of Directors to serve three-year terms.  Please try to attend – we need a quorum in order to elect directors!

Help end the EYC’s social season in style! Come to the COMMODORE’S PARTY, Saturday, August 10 beginning at 6:00 PM at the Peninsula School of Art. EYC members and guests of all ages are welcome at this party, which is always the highlight of the EYC’s social season.  This year, for the first time, the Commodore’s Party will feature live music! Singer Katie Schnorr and guitarist George Sawyn will perform jazz standards.  Bring your favorite appetizer; the EYC supplies wine, beer, and soft drinks.  Admission remains at $15 (adults and children age 9 and older) or $8 (age 8 and under).  The EYC prefers your personal check.

The Peninsula School of Art is located at 3900 Hwy. F, Fish Creek, approximately 1 block east of Hwy. 42.

The FLYING SCOT RACES normally scheduled for the morning of Saturday, August 10 will be held instead on the morning of Sunday, August 11.  The OPTIMIST BLUE FLEET (11 and under) RACES normally scheduled for the morning of Sunday, August 11 will be held instead on the morning of Saturday, August 10.  The switch is intended to accommodate Flying Scot racers who also wish to attend the Annual Meeting, or the Board of Directors meeting which follows the membership meeting.

The JUNIOR ACTIVITY for Wednesday, August 13 will be a Sunset Trail Bike Ride.  Drop off at 6:00 PM at the Stella Maris Catholic Church, 4019 Hwy. 42 in Fish Creek.  After riding Peninsula State Park’s Sunset Trail, the group will proceed to Not Licked Yet for a custard treat.  Participants should bring bicycle, helmet, and money for custard, and dress appropriately. Participants in this event must sign up in advance on the poster at the EYC.  If you do not have a bicycle, please indicate on the poster that you need one, in which case arrangements will be made.  Pick up at Not Licked Yet at 8:00 PM.
