It is hard to believe that our season is coming to an end already! What a fun filled summer we have had this year. The Hornback is right around the corner. On October 14th, we will break up the two day Hornback Regatta with a Chili Cookoff! Jennifer Curtis will be our Hostess again. She has plenty of fun and games planned for all ages! This event will kick off at 5:00pm. All those interested in participating in the Chili Cookoff should bring your Chili and fixin’s. Those just wishing to sample and vote can bring a dish to pass as a contribution to the event.
Make sure you mark your calendars and Save the Date for the Final Bash, held on November 4that 6:30pm. I understand Perry Cameron and his planning team have some nice surprises for us as well! Be on the lookout for more information and be sure to RSVP!
We have had several exciting events this summer! As usual, our Lobster Fest was a great success as Eric Jones and his crew served up over 200 lobsters and grilled to order some mighty tasty steaks! Eric spent hours just in the preparation for this event. He did a great job coordinating with a Lobsterman in Maine to assure we had Live Delivery the night before the event. We made a few changes in check to the reservation and check in process and used bracelets instead of tickets to assure everyone received what they ordered. All in all, it was a GREAT SUCCESS!! A shout out to all involved!
Although I was not able to attend the Labor Day Barbecue, I understand David Knapp and his crew served up some wonderful Brats and Burgers! Attendance was a little lower than anticipated, but a good time was had by all! Thank you David for continuing to step up and host an event.
Our next social event is coming up October 14th, when we break up the two day Hornback Regatta with a Chili Cookoff! Jennifer Curtis has offered to host this event again. Although, with a little one on the way, she may be recruiting some extra hands to help her out! This event will kick off at 5:00pm. All those interested in participating in the Chili Cookoff should bring your Chili and fixin’s. Those just wishing to sample and vote can bring a dish to pass as a contribution to the event.
Make sure you mark your calendars and Save the Date for the Final Bash, held on November 4th at 6:30pm. Be on the lookout for more information from Perry Cameron as he is finalizing the details.
I want to thank Amy Miller and her crew for their hard work in pulling off the Father’s Day Brunch! As usual, our grill master, Tony Rice, served up a nice spread.
For the 4th of July, we welcome back Steve and Sarah McQueen as our host and hostess along with Kevin Harrell who will prepare the smoked pig for our ECSC Family and Friends. He starts smoking the pig in the late hours of July 3rd so if you are at the club, be sure to stop at the upper shelter and thank him and his team for pulling an all-nighter so we can have a feast on the 4th! The festivities will begin at 4:30 so bring your appetite and a dish to share!
There are still opportunities to volunteer as crew at any of our upcoming events. Please give me a shout if you have an interest in earning some work credits while having fun helping with an event.
Save the date for the upcoming Lobster Fest to be held on August 19th at 6pm. Eric will be sending out evites again so you can make your reservations and payment at the same time electronically.
