Our 2017 sailing season is just a few months away! As you know we have several social events that are pre-set for each sailing season. These events could not happen without our trusted volunteers leading the charge by hosting them. Work Credits are provided to volunteers that spend their time to make our club more enjoyable. Below you will see a list of the already scheduled events and the openings I have for recruitment opportunities. You will have my full support!

As we close out our 2016 year, we have much to celebrate and be thankful for. We had very successful events this past summer and a big shout out to Nick Mates for a well-planned and implemented Final Bash! The mild weather allowed for several to enjoy sailing to Rick’s and enjoy the balcony and great view! I am already working on the 2017 calendar and look forward to some “repeat offenders” of Hosts and Hostesses! Please let me know if you wish to take on the responsibility again for the upcoming sailing season….it will be here before you know it! I will be looking for assistance in the spring to clean, paint, and organize the kitchen and social shed. This is another great way to earn your work credit!
We had a great social season this year. As always, our members stepped up and volunteered as hosts and crew. We really appreciate your efforts. Our next event is the annual Chili Cook Off on Saturday October 8, 2016 starting at 5:30. Bring your favorite pot of chili and enter the contest for fabulous prizes and bragging rights! Our final social event will be the Final Bash on Saturday November 5, 2016 at Rick’s Café Boatyard. More info to follow.
Big Shout OUT to Eric Jones and his crew for putting on a fabulous Lobster Fest Event! Despite the weather, we had a great turnout! He had so much fun, he has already volunteered for next year! Thanks Eric!! Please check out the pictures on the our Facebook Page. Great fun had by all! Jack and Cindy Hale are gearing up for our Labor Day Barbecue. Please plan on coming with an appetite and a dish to pass. We anticipate GREAT weather this weekend so this too should be a successful event! First Burger Served at 3:30.
It is hard to believe that it is already August! Eric Jones and his crew have been planning the Lobster Fest for several weeks. Lobster Fest will take place on August 20th. You should have already received a “Save the Date” email. To cover the cost of the Lobsters we are charging $12 per person. We need to have a good head count so we order the right amount of those clawed creatures so PLEASE RSVP. We are still seeking 4 additional volunteers to assist with this event. Earn some work credits and join in on all the fun! Contact Eric Jones or Vickie Greenough if you are up for the challenge. Labor Day cookout will be September 5th and is hosted by Jack and Cindy Hale. Chili Cook off will be hosted by Jennifer and Ryan Curtis Final Bash will be hosted by Nick Mates
We have a lot of social events in the summer. We already had a successful Mother’s Day brunch and Father’s Day brunch. Next up is the very popular July 4th Pig Roast. That is followed by the newly revived ECSC Beach Party on July 9th. I hope you sent in your RSVP for this popular event. Our big event for August is the annual Lobster Boil. This is another RSVP event so we know how many lobsters to order. Please, please, please, please be sure to RSVP so we have enough for everyone. And when we say one lobster per person, please take only one lobster so that everyone who ordered one can get one. If there are extras, you are more than welcome to go back for seconds. We have two events in September: the Labor Day cookout on September 5th and the Governor’s Cup Regatta party on September 10th. We still need volunteer hosts and crew for some events. Check the “Host/Crew Assignments” link on the Social page for openings. You will receive valuable work credits to offset next year’s membership dues.
Despite the cold, rainy weather, we had a great turnout for the Mother’s Day brunch. Big “Thank You” to Mike and Katie Smith for a job well done! Tony Rice spent his time at the grill as the Smith’s wingman. David Knapp is gearing up for our Memorial Day cook out. The weather is expected to be beautiful and breezy. First burger will be served at 3:30. Get you sailing in early and dock in time for some grub.
