The summer is just flying by!
My family attended the Driftwood Yacht Club Make-A-Wish Fundraiser in June. We cruised in and the harbormaster was terrific – we had some engine issues and he helped us with docking. What a peaceful harbor. It looked like Driftwood YC was able to raise quite a bit of money for the charity. We were glad we were able to attend, and enjoyed catching up with Steve, Bonnie and Terry.
We had our Co-Founder’s Event with River View Yacht Club on June 23rd. Rear Commodore Jo Daniels coordinated the galley detail. Thanks go out to Jo, Dave Peck and Joel Curtis-Brown for making the awesome pasta. Janice and Kim decorated and Carolyn made an IPod playlist for the event. Thanks to everyone who helped out and participated in the event. River View was very generous with us when it came to sharing the profit and insisted we keep a larger portion of the proceeds. One of their members said how nice it was to see their clubhouse full with people talking, laughing and having a good time. We agreed that CIYC would “pay it forward” sometime in the future when another yacht club needs a helping hand. Thanks River View!!
It sounds like almost everyone had a great 4th of July. Some were at Mandaville, some at Stockton and some on the docks of their marina. We had a great time at Cruiser Haven enjoying the new “ghetto” at Cruiser Haven. The final area will be twice as big and there is an awesome swimming area and dock ladder. Thanks Kevin! And thanks Janice who made the improvement requests along with supplying many potted plants – ask her about winning an arm wrestling contest . . .
August 4th – Glen Scrimger memorial go-fast poker run headed up by Nancy and Al Laughlin. Al and Nancy sent out an informational e-mail. Meet at Cruiser Haven at 10 a.m. and the cost is $5 per member. Contact Al if you have questions.
August 10-12 – Mildred Island Anchor-out. Contact Chip if you are attending and if you have questions. Flyer is posted on the website. We invited River View members on this cruise-out in appreciation of their support.
The Bethel Island Chamber of Commerce is hosting their annual 50’s Bash on August 11th. This may be an alternative for you if you can’t attend the anchor-out.
August 31 – September 3rd – Cruise-Out to Commodore’s Island hosted by Marsha and Curt Hayes. Marsha has sent out e-mails. Currently there is a waiting list to dock on the Island, or King Island is another option and is very close.
Check the calendar on the website for all event dates.
See you on the docks or on the water . . .
