Social – November 2018

Sadly, the season is coming to a close.  The Hornback Chili Cookoff was a great success under Jennifer Curtis and crew’s leadership!  I hear it was difficult to determine the winner as all the entries were scrumptious!  Our Final Bash will be held on November 3rd, at Rick’s Boatyard.  By now you should have RSVP’d to Nick Mates who is heading the planning committee for our last shindig of the season!   We are already planning out next season’s schedule as we will be celebrating the Sail Club’s 50th Anniversary!  Be on the lookout for the schedule with your annual registration packet!  In our efforts to increase social event participation and volunteerism, we will be making some changes to the dates and times of events.  As always, if you have any questions and/or suggestions, please do not hesitate to email social@ecsail.org.   A big THANK YOU to all who made 2018 a big success!     Vickie
