Commodore's Summer News Letter
Ahoy BCYC members!
Greetings from your Commodore. The summer of 2018 is racing past. Chris and I have been using our boat a lot this summer and enjoyed attending BCYC events with other “Back Yakkers” which included the Memorial Day Cruise, Annual Cruise, Lobster Feast, Pirates weekend in Rock Hall, and the Labor Day cruise to Oxford just to name a few. As the summer winds down BCYC events continue with the last land/sea event of the season coming up this month, the Shrimp Boil at Court and Laura Treuth’s house on the Magothy followed by the Annual Membership meeting at the Navy Academy golf course clubhouse. The annual Vagabond Cruise was cancelled this year because only two boats were able to sign up. I hope that next year more folks will be able to participate. However, despite a hurricane disrupting the undersubscribed Vagabond Cruise, nearly 20 brave members are going to experience the flight deck simulator at the Patuxent Naval Air Station and experience what its like to "Fly Like Tom Cruise" in the movie Top Gun.
We have had several new members join the club this summer so please make them feel welcome when you meet them. The theme of the Annual Membership meeting is going to be, “Volunteerism”. How do we get more members to volunteer to host events and support the club? Hosting an event is so easy to do. The BCYC Social and Cruise Directors are there to help you with all the information you need to host a successful event. So don’t hesitate to sign up for an event!
For the first time in five years Chris and I will not be cruising our boat to Florida this winter. We have bought a house in Stuart and will be driving down this year. I hope the “Lady Kadey” doesn’t feel left out!
