FRIDAY@5 THIS WEEK!
 
This Friday is the regular Friday at Five (they're on the 1st and 3rd Fridays).  Bring an appetizer if you can, and celebrate "Summer is Coming!"  Everything is casual" dress, conversation, ambiance, but the fun is serious!


YOUTH SUMMER SAILING UPDATE...

The pace of registrations for the sailing classes have increased the past several weeks, thanks in no small part by the efforts of many BYC members.  Keep up the good work!
 
We would also like to inform everyone that scholarships are available to any child eligible for free or assisted lunch in school.  The scholarship, from the Seattle Sailing Foundation, covers the full cost of class registration for that individual!  
 
Please spread the word that these scholarships are available for any youth meeting this requirement.  --- Arne Ahlen, BYC Junior Sailing Fleet Captain


PAST COMMODORE'S CRUISE JUNE 1-2-3
AT BLAKELY ISLAND MARINA: ALL MEMBERS WELCOME!!!

LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER....

Please join Past Commodore Michele Bennett as she fulfills her final official duty to the Club.  Friday night will be potluck appetizers on the dock and I'm sure Garufa will be serving cocktails and bbq'd oysters off of her fantail.

Saturday will be a day to hang out, enjoy some lawn games, and then take part in a BBQ up at the cooking pavilion.  Neil will be making up his famous ribs and all you need to do is bring a side dish to add to the mix!

Sunday will be mimosas, spicy Caesars, and a Cold Cereal Brunch before we pack up and head for home.

Price is $1.30 per foot. I'm happy to make the reservations for you, just let me know you are coming.  I need to know your arrival & departure dates, boat overall length and draft.   At your service,  PC Michele  micheleb@spie.org


GET LEI-ED ON JUNE 8:

A Hawaiian Luau at the BYC, Friday, June 8th: it's an "Off Fridays at Six", another great BYC Member Benefit!

Bring your favorite Polynesian appetizer, bring the kids, bring the grandparents.  We will have  Prizes for the best Hawaiian Shirts, hula hooping, and more.  
 
If you would like to be a part of putting together this fun event, please contact Susan Henderson, Angie Santosuosso, or Kathy Brown.
