We anxiously await our annual Fish Fry, compliments of Don Courtney, this Saturday, September 19th with appetizers at 4-4:30pm and dinner at 5pm. Please RSVP to Diane’s google form that was sent out to each of you this week. She is asking for all responses by this Wednesday, Sept 16 by 9:00 AM! We need an accurate tally to determine how much fish to purchase, otherwise we’ll all be eating hush puppies! ALSO, everyone please bring your much desired and scrumptious side dishes and desserts, your beverages and a chair since we will be up by the shed.
Also earlier that same day, we will have another Fun Race. Skippers meeting is at 10am, at end of C dock. All racers- new and old are encouraged to join in.
On a saddened note, we learned this past Saturday that Connie has returned to Duke Hospital this week because of blood clots in her lungs as well as her operated leg. Please extend your prayers and positive thoughts.
Thank you to all 21 participants of Saturday’s annual Treasure Hunt. David was able to throw in some new twists again this year to keep you on your toes. (Thanks honey for a fun day!) As we passed (threw) a cheaper version of Grey Poupon between the boats and set out solving clues and puzzles, a few new sailors learned to navigate with a compass rose! A skill they didn’t know that they missed until Saturday! J A big thank you to Darren and Sigal, aboard Sea Gal, Ted and John, aboard Aquilla, and Keir and Rhonda aboard Sapphire (and Don Courtney for offering Palisades, although we did not race her this time) for opening up their boats to us as our host boats. Also thank you to Doug for monitoring and Rich for helping in the setup of clues Saturday morning. Congratulations to Keir and Rhonda for taking 1st place this year along with Don, Bobbette and Dan as their fellow treasure seekers. They will remind us of their win as they fly the Treasure Hunt burgee until next year. After the race, we huddled under the gazebo in the rain and enjoyed the spoils of the hunt including: shrimp cocktail, fine cheeses and meats, crab dips, fruit and vegetable trays and plenty of beverages!
Don’t forget the upcoming Bluenose race on September 26th. Steve Twyman sent out the details earlier this week! Let him know if you’re racing.
Send in your RSVP’s as we look forward to seeing you at the Fish Fry this Saturday,
Thank you, as always for your contributions, energy and support to SCYC,
