By the time you read this article, the January Taco Feed, Breakfast, and possibly the February Crab Feed and Super Bowl Party will be over. It seems we are always faced with deadlines. With the super chair persons for these events, I am certain they will come out fine.

New member, CAPT Mike Ryan and his wife Mona-Lisa did an absolutely superb job on the New Years Eve Party. The food was great and the decorations outstanding. We were slightly over-subscribed which made the dance floor a little smaller, but everyone had a great time.

BYC's Heavy Weather Weekend is coming up rapidly on February 17 - 20, and I stress again that this is an All Hands Event! Get involved and participate where you can. The chair persons for the Friday evening Wine Tasting, CAPT Andy Kupp; Saturday evening dinner, CAPT Blain Eliot; Sunday evening dinner, CAPT Mike Ryan; and Monday breakfast, CAPT Doug Smith all need help. Come on you new members and help out! It is a great way to learn about the Club and meet new friends. Check with these members or any of the Club Officers to ask how to get involved. Besides the social events, there are fire watches, mooring, parking, setup and takedown, and a myriad of other tasks to be performed to make this a success. The theme for the skit competition this year is "Sea Shanties". We need a "few good men and women" with good voices and a spirit of the sea to put this together and have a good time. We also would like to have some accompaniment such as a keyboard, flute, or accordion and some help with the design and construction of the backdrop curtain. Be sure to see the flyer elsewhere in this issue.

Looking down the road, there will be a dinner at the General Meeting on March 20th. Our guests will be the Seattle Yacht Club's "Admiral and Staff" who will present an overview of Opening Day. CAPT Mike Ryan and his wife Mona-Lisa will Chair the event with CAPT Al Gonzales heading the galley staff. You know this will be an outstanding dinner.

In closing, I would like to mention that several committee chairman positions will be open for next year. If you have any aspirations for any of these positions, please contact me by phone at 792-0198 or email
