HERE'S SOME FUN FOR YOU THAT MEANS A LOT TO THE CLUB!
tells us that the Club is scheduling another bartending class. Do you know that scores of BYC-ers have got their "Mixologist's Permit" from the state of WA, and they have fun serving --- and getting to know --- our wonderful Members. You can serve as often or as rarely as you wish, and the class is cheap! Just think, if times get even tougher, you'll be qualified to work in a tavern, too!
Of course, the real payoff is for the Club! Our bartenders earn up to well over TEN GRAND a year for the Club, money that otherwise would have to come from dues or sending out Members to transport illegal drug cargos...
Why not sign up to make a difference and keep our Members out of jail? Anyone interested in the class or needing to renew their licence please contact Joe or Carol Young at email@example.com
. Dates to be determined.
SUMMER DINING AT ITS MOST SOCIABLE AND CASUAL...
We will be open on Wednesdays for the $6 Burger and Brew through August. Sit on the deck and leave the cooking to us. No brew? A great hamburger and chips for just $2.50. Lounge opens at 5pm, burgers hot off the grill by 6.
[Your editor was at the Club one evening last week, and how delightful our deck is on an nice evening whewn the doors are open. Balmy breezes, friends chatty on the deck, and bargain-bar pricing that's half of what most places charge, especially those facilities that are comparable in furnishings. All that and great friends, too...what more could you want?] --- Carol Young

TOUGH TIMES FOR TWO PAST COMMODORES…
Chuck McCord and Max King
are having difficult times. Chuck is dealing with a brain disorder that is frustrating him (and his surgeons somewhat) and Max is recovering from a modest, though still somewhat disabling stroke. Both men, of course, have the prayers and affection of all of us in the BYC as they work toward recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts, along with Roberta and Elle. And if you can give us more info that we can pass on to our Members, please email firstname.lastname@example.org; our regular and wonderful, caring sources, Matt & Brenda Dennis
, are unavailable for a few weeks.
Thanks...and nothing but the best to you both, Chuck and Max! --- Joe Coons
