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

TIYC Crab feed 2016


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
