Thanks also to all those Skippers that decorated their boats or volunteered on the Santa Ship and cruised in the Lighted Boat Parade this year. This years parade was one of the smoothest run I have witnessed. Thanks to the wonderful skippers, for having hardly any gaps between boats. Least I forget the effort put forth by our Rear Commodore Charles Billings in developing and executing a very basic but fool-proof format to take and record site information for those on shore, which helped tremendously in making this a timely and better experience for all concerned.
I hope everyone enjoyed that wonderful BYC Christmas dinner put on by our own Bridge Officers and their wives ( especially their wives ). Thank you to Gerri Bachman and her team of fabulous cooks. Lets not forget, the wonderful Christmas Carols sung by "Sound Wave" and I for one, marveled at the gift ideas thought up by 'Santas Elves".
