New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day Festivities

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

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

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.

Our Commodore has said “let’s do this.”  The same weekend the Unofficial Washedup Yacht Club is planning a mega raft up in Clipper Cove.

TIYC George Knies Memorial Crab Feed, (Feb. 27th)

TIYC Crab feed 2016

UPDATE:

Please see the full sized linked TIYC Crab feed 2016 flyer and
RSVP (click here) with pre-payment as this is expected to sell out.

Hi Everyone,

The Crab Fest is happening!  Really!

As mentioned (Jan 13) when we delayed it, the date is confirmed: February 27th.

This will be the last big event in our old clubhouse, so come say good bye to our long-time home before we start moving everything to our new location.

Past Commodores:

Like last year, we are asking our Past Commodores to take charge of serving at this event, and this is the real purpose of this note.  We need the Past Commodores to belly up to the bar and lead the charge, so we are reserving the first tickets for Past Commodores and their mates, but we need your names now. If you’re a Past Commodore, please Reply to this email (please do not Reply All), and let me know you’re coming.

All Members:

Atta and MeeSun are working on a new RSVP/Reservation/Advance Ticket Sales that they hope to roll-out in the next day or two.  Tickets will be $50 paid online in advance, with a limit of 50 tickets.  We will increase that number if weather looks great and we can make use of outdoor seating. We ask that you purchase as early as possible, and purchase only two (2) tickets so that many members may participate.  If seats remain by next weekend, MeeSun will email a notice and then you may purchase tickets for your guests.

We promise this will be the most memorable Crab Fest we have ever produced, with more delectable fresh Dungeness Crab than all of us can eat, so plan meals accordingly.  Come hungry, eat mass quantities of crab.

Will Smith
TIYC Commodore 2016
