Reports from the Bridge

Nov 2014


Leadership is the courage to admit mistakes, the vision to welcome change, the enthusiasm to motivate others and the confidence to stay out of step when everyone else is marching to the wrong tune.

We are now fast approaching our busiest social time of the year. The next two months will offer you multiple opportunities to enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow members while participating in making and keeping your Club such a great organization.

On November 8, the annual New Members' Night, coupled with the Captain Ron theme party, is a sure fire way to enjoy not only the friendship and camaraderie of your current BYC friends but also an opportunity to expand your friendships within the Club by meeting and getting to know our new members. The event is being produced by some of our best talent in Bev Bruins, Nena Andrews and Lynetta and Bret Halffman. Sign up is on the board so get to getting your name on the list!

Our Club decorating party will be on November 29th. This is an opportunity for you to help make the Club festive and inviting for the Holiday Season. This event has a very relaxed and social atmosphere and the “work” of decorating is really not “work” at all but a leisurely activity wherein the ladies all socialize between placing decorations around the Club and the men eat pizza and wait patiently for directions from the ladies! Take the day and come join in the fun!

Moving into December, on the 7th we will have our annual Special People's Cruise. This event will once again be chaired by Susan LeBas and presents an opportunity for our members to do something really special for some really special people. Offer your boat or help out in the Clubhouse but this is an annual event you will truly feel good about helping with. Please contact Susan and let her know what you can do to help.

Then, on the 14th of December we will have our traditional Christmas Dinner. The Gonzalez family, Chaired by David Gonzalez, will once again prepare this incredible feast and your Executive Committee and Bridge will attend to your every need (well, most of them anyway). Be sure to get your name on the sign-up list early as we anticipate this to be another “sold out” event!

The following weekend (December 19 and 20) our annual Lighted Boat Parades will take float and we are anticipating a significant increase in the number of participating boats this year. If you want to be a part of the fun, start planning now so you can have your boat decorations ready and your list of friends to be invited aboard all set for this major community event.

With warm personal regards,
Ray Norton
