2016 is drawing to a close and TIYC is having our annual get together on New Year’s Eve. This is an informal event and we are planning a Pot Luck this year. For those of you who do not want to bring a dish, there will be a $10.00 charge for dinner. We will start about 5:00pm with appetizers and libations. Dinner will be about 6:00pm. We have a puzzle to put together and watch the celebration from around the world. When the Ball drops in New York we will call it a night and you can go to other events in the City or elsewhere; or you might want to stay on the island to watch the fireworks at midnight. I you have a boat, think about staying at the Marina that night. That way you will there in the morning for the Annual Cruise Around the Island (see John Mohn’s e-mail and flyer). He is looking for boats, and riders to sign up. For the New Year’s Eve event please RSVP to me, at this e-mail or my cell (510-932-3275) let me know if you are coming and what you are bringing (or not bringing if that is the case). Here are some items you might want to consider:
Chicken and Pork Tamales Connie
(2) Chili or Sloppy Joes ______________________ ____________________
(3) Salads Connie Green Salad ____________________ ___________________
(5 Appetizers Franks in BBQ sauce _________________ ________________ _______________ _____________
Bread or Rolls ________________
(2) Hot Vegetables __________________ __________________
Deserts Connie – Cookies
New Year’s Day will meet at the club around 10:30am for coffee and breakfast snacks (fresh Cinnamon Rolls, Bagels (and the trimmings) juice and coffee. After the cruise around the bay we will meet back at the club for hot Clam Chowder, sandwiches, and leftovers from the night before.
The cost for the New Year’s Day event is $15.00 ($5.00 for breakfast and $10 for lunch). RSVP to John for this event and he will get me the numbers. This is always a popular event. Last year we had 7 or 8 boats, and about 40 guests. Let’s try for getting all our members with boats on the water and have a big parade. Remember to bring a warm jacket, or you can buy one from the Ships Store. I have a new order coming in the end of December.

TIYC Holiday Decorating Party
TIYC is going to get decorated for the Holidays (bring a boat themed ornament if you like, and put 2016 on it).
Saturday, December 3rd, 3:00 PM
Food, Music, Friends & Fun
“White Elephant” exchange about 5:30 PM
Bring a nautical wrapped white elephant gift
Can be naughty or nice ($10 maximum value)
We should be done by about 7:00pm (depending on clean up and people who just want to hang around).
This event is not a potluck, but there is a $5.00 fee for everyone who joins us. I think I will save the potluck for the New Year’s Eve event (more to come on that). We have hot and cold appetizers, and drinks (not a real dinner).
This is a fun event so I hope you can all join us, even for a little while.

Come and learn…. At the TIYC University
What? The basics of boating, Sail or Power
Many of our new members said they had little boating experience/skills, but would like to learn. So TIYC has partnered with the Diablo Chapter of the United States Sail and Power Squadron, to provide some basic boating skills in a class called “The ABCs of Boating”
This 2 day class is being offered on 2 consecutive Saturdays: October 22 and 29. An all day class, you will learn about navigation aids (and what the word means), lights and sound signals, government regulations (for you and your boat), anchoring, departing and returning to a dock (without big bumps or yelling), trailering, and much more. While you won’t get to operate a boat during this class, you will become more confident (and proficient) when we get to that step.
So, whether you are new to the subject, want a refresher, want to see if “things have changed since I first learned this”, or want to bring (and sponsor) someone who is just a beginner….
The instruction is free; you just pay for the book and additional materials ($35). Couples may chose to buy one book for both of you.
RSVP by October 10 to Rich & Mary Holden, RichSail@aol.com
