    By the time you get the November Towline, the first of our Work Party weekends, and the BYC Halloween Cruise to the Port Orchard Yacht Club will be history. Looking ahead, the old calendar on the wall shows that Thanksgiving is just over a month away. It is hard to realize that fact, but since the department stores are already decorated for the Holiday Season, it must be true. That means it is nearing time to decorate the Clubhouse as well.

    Some upcoming BYC events in November should help lead us into the Holiday mood. The month starts off on November 2nd with a celebration to "Welcome" all the new members to the Club during the BYC New Members Night. Mona-Lisa Ryan and Bev Bruins have scheduled a Fun Event, with Light Appetizers and Refreshments at 7:30 PM. This is a great way to spend a Friday evening, enjoy some refreshments and Super Goodies AT NO COST, renew some old acquaintances, and "meet and greet" those Members that joined us since November, 2006.

    On Sunday, November 11th (Veterans Day), Diane and Dan Robinson are allowing for a "cooks morning off" by having one of our Great BYC Breakfasts prepared and waiting for you. Mark your calendars, bypass your kitchen, bring your guests and family, and come join your BYC friends for a Sunday Morning Feast.

    The following weekend, November 16-18, Mr. and Mrs. Fleet Captain have planned a BYC Cruise-In to Brownsville. If you haven't tried the new finger piers at Brownsville, you're in for a pleasant surprise that will make this Cruise-In one to really enjoy. Get your name on the Sign-Up sheet so you don't miss the last Cruise-In of the year.

    The week after Thanksgiving, Rear Commodore Don (and Donna) Park are gearing up for the Traditional BYC Tree Trimming Party on Friday November 30th. This is the time when the Club really gets decorated. Don and Donna look forward to BYC fellow members helping to decorate the traditional Christmas Tree and the Clubhouse. Please join the party, lend a hand, and get in the Christmas Mood!

    The following weekend, December 1st and 2nd is a busy one. BYC hosts the BYC Children's Christmas Party on Saturday. Invite your children and/or grandchildren, and arrange to have Santa (RC Don Park) present each of them with a gift from you. Then, Sunday is the Traditional BYC Special Peoples Cruise. No other club event offers the "emotional joy" that seeing the pure delight on the faces of those "special people" offers. This is one event in which being a volunteer has real rewards. Chairman PC Carr is busy with the many arrangements needed. If you are willing to help, please give him a call, or respond with a resounding "yes" if he calls you.

    Wishing you an upcoming Happy Holiday Season, I remain your Humble Servant,

    Mike Dunn, Vice Commodore
