The Holiday Season is now upon us which means a number of fun events are in store for BYC. Before going through the rundown, I wish to thank P/C Bob and Gerri Bachman for making the Halloween Cruise to Port Orchard a “howling success.” Although not well attended because of the weather, those who did really had a great time. A “hats off” to CAPT Andy and Nancy Kupp for hosting the New Members’ Night and Wine Tasting. They put a lot of effort into the event making it a splendid occasion for all who attended. Next was the November Breakfast Chaired by CAPT Dan and Diane Robinson. As comparatively new members, they certainly raised the bar with eggs benedict as the main entrée. Thanks for jumping right in and trying something different! By the time you read this, the cruise to Bell Harbor will be over. I hope the weather cooperates.

Looking ahead, we start with the Tree Trimming Party on 2 December which caps a week of decorating the Club. The R/C will provide greater detail including the Children’s Christmas Party and Lighted Boats Parade.

The Special People’s Cruise, Chaired by P/C Miller, will be on Sunday, 4 December. This is a time to participate in the spirit of the season and give something to those with special needs and less fortunate than we. I urge you to signup and become a part of this wonderful event. Penny and I have participated each year since joining BYC and have received more than we ever gave.

The Christmas Dinner on 11 December hosted by the Bridge, Flag Officers, and Executive Committee promises again to be a great event. For planning purposes, be sure to get your reservations in early. The entertainment will be a choral group which will sing patriotic as well as songs of the season. The group includes some members of BYC.

Last will be the BYC New Year’s Party chaired by new members CAPT Mike Ryan and his wife Mona Lisa who is a caterer by profession. This promises to be another fun event with some great hors d’ oeuvres, dancing to the music of “Silverport Sound”, and a champagne toast to bring in the New Year. Be sure to signup early so you can join your friends in a nice atmosphere and dance to the sound of a “Big Band.” I hope to see you there.

Penny and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a joyous Holiday Season and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year!
