"SO come to the Club and enjoy all your friends!  Please bring those wonderful appetizers that you are so famous for sharing with us."  Submitted by Steve Moore, PC and Chair of the F@5 committee

The Annual, Traditional Boat Show Bus Trip is Coming!

It’s time to get your Boat Show Bus reservations in: Great Fun!  The date is Saturday, January 22 leaving at 8:30 AM sharp from the club, and the return leaves the show at 5:30.  

The cost is $45 per person and includes both  the in-the-water and inside shows (you can do both or either, as long as you like during the day). Food and drink is provided both on the way down and the way back, and the big, luxurious eliminates the parking and driving hassle, and if the weather’s bad, the driver deals with it.  Besides, you can have fun meeting new BYC friends! 

You must sign up and pay at the bar!  For questions, Jody Erickson can be contacted at and her phone is (360) 223-2119.  Matt Dennis is co-chair. Remember, you must be added to the list and pay at the bar.

Special thanks to San Juan Sailing for sponsoring the show tickets!
