The BYC Open House was a SUCCESS Beyond Expectation! It is the one time of the year when our Club is Open to the Public–including the Bar.
This year’s event featured:
- Information Booths about BYC’s many different clubs, committees, and benefits were available to Members and Guests!
- On-going Raffles for BYC Gear!
- Three Local Breweries Beer Tastings and 175 Hot Dogs grilled and served for lunch!
- Shrimp Scampi and Dancing to the the Hot Tunes of Jasmine Greene and her Band!
A HUGE thank you to Marian Welsh and Marian Henderson who are swamped with 29 new Member applications to process…in addition to the 33 applications that they have received since April 1st! That’s 62 new applications in four weeks requiring Rosters, Name Badges, Membership Cards, Files, etc. And thanks to Mike Welsh for handling the dues processing and paperwork. Your overtime work (way beyond the call of duty) during the Membership Drive is much appreciated!
A special thanks to our super grill masters: Neil Bennett, Tim Mumford, and Terry Tavelli, who made and served up the delicious hot and fresh Shrimp Scampi dinner.
The Local Brews Beer Tasting was a huge success — many thanks to Susan Henderson & Sandy Hanson for pouring hundreds of beer tastings. Thanks to bartenders, Ryan and Levey, for keeping up with all the Bar traffic.
We appreciate Sue Day and Katy Day along with Jack and Linda Levine, Andy Brown and Rick Steidley for all of their behind the scenes work. Thanks so much for volunteering!
Many thanks go out to the many BYC Members and Dead Pirates who volunteered their time to work the 12 hour event by manning booths, setting up, welcoming the many visitors, re-supplying and cleaning up after a great day! It took many volunteers and participants to make this Open House so successful! Thank you all!
Kudos to co-chairs Gary Baker and Angie Santosuosso of the Open House Committee who did a fantastic job organizing the Annual Open House Event. They have worked on this event for months!
It was a FUN Day on the Water making New BYC Friends!
