Saturday, June 21 is EPHRAIM’S FYR BAL FESTIVAL, the 50th anniversary of this historic festival. The EYC has a full day of Fyr Bal events planned, so mark your calendar and plan to take part:
7:30 A.M. – 10:30 A.M. EYC PANCAKE BREAKFAST at the Ephraim Village Hall. Please come and bring your family and friends. This event is open to the public and is a fundraiser for EYC sailing lesson scholarships. This inexpensive breakfast features all you can eat pancakes and sausage plus juice and coffee for only $8 adults and $5 children 12 and under.
9:00 A.M. Boat draw for the FYR BAL REGATTA in Flying Scots. First warning signal 10:00 A.M. Even if you don’t race, come on down to the EYC’s bleachers to watch and digest your pancakes.
1:00 P.M. – Boat draw for the EYC’s regular Saturday afternoon Laser races. Races start at 2:00 P.M.
2:00 P.M. – 4:30 P.M. – OPEN HOUSE AND FREE SAILBOAT RIDES for prospective members. If you have a friend who is thinking of joining the EYC, bring them to the EYC for a short tour and slide show, followed by a sailboat ride in one of the EYC’s Flying Scots, skippered by an EYC instructor.
6:00 P.M. – FYR BAL FAMILY COOKOUT. The EYC will grill up delicious meats. Bring your own side dish (and maybe some to share) and beverages. After the cookout, we will watch as the Fyr Bal bonfires are lit, followed by fireworks.
