Last Friday the Christmas Party was yet another great and well attended BYC event that seems to be happening a lot! Whew!!… I’m not sure I can keep up with this pace!! Although the Club provided the 4 turkeys, big thanks go to RC Neil Bennett and Katy Day who labored all day cooking them up. Also big thanks go out to Randy Klemann, Dan Ringler, Susan Henderson and Terry Tavelli for carving them up, and all those who provided stuffing and side dishes. Sorry about the Stuffing contest not happening… they all must have been outstanding since they all were gone by the time I got through the line!! Next year perhaps!
Perhaps you’ve read in the Youth Sailing news above, the BYC is bringing aboard Scott Wilson, the Whatcom High Team Head Coach as the new BYC Youth Racing Director. Scott’s local successes are well known, however, he has significant experience at the regional & national levels with serving on the Boards of the Seattle Sailing Foundation, Bellingham Sailing Foundation, ISCA (College Sailing) & Northwest ISSA (High School Sailing). Please join me in congratulating Scott in his new role.
This week is a yet another BYC event... the Last Friday’s @ Five of 2014! I don’t have a theme yet, but if you have any good ideas, post it on the BYC’s Facebook page. The selected winner will get a free drink on Commenormous Knowles' account! Also, if you - or a committee you serve on - would like to host a BYC Friday’s at Five, the club will be provide $150 for food costs.
We’re getting close to publishing the 2015 BYC Events Calendar. There are lots of great events planned for everyone… Sailing, Cruising, Youth, Boating Education, and Social... stay tuned.
