Reports from the Bridge
The club house is
ready for the Holidays! Let the fun begin! Thank you to Sharon Lillybridge and all the people (28 in all) that showed to help with
decorating the club house for the Holidays. We had a great time and it was done
in short order.
The Holiday lineup
begins with the kid’s Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, 3 December @ 0900.
Santa is arriving after breakfast and will pass out presents for the kids. Sign
up and bring wrapped presents, clearly labeled with the children’s names. Bev
Bruins is chairing this event. Contact Bev if you would like to help.
Santa will be making
an appearance at the Club Christmas Dinner Sunday, 11 December at 16:00 to pass
out “gifts” for deserving Members. Club elves that want to see that special person get that special gift, contact Santa’s answering
service (RC Santa-360-286-3418).
This year’s Lighted
Boat Parade is Friday and Saturday, 16 and 17 December. The Skipper’s Meeting
will be @1700 FRI night and Underway @1745, parade starts @1810 both nights. After
return to port on FRI night, spiced rum and apple cider will be the warming beverage
for the parade participants. We had a great turnout last year. The parade is a
great opportunity to see the xmas decorations along the shore and entertain prospective
club members. It is a fun time for skippers and guests. Sign-up sheet for
participating boats is in the clubhouse.
Then after all the
festivities are over, the Clubhouse “Un-Decorating” Party will be Saturday, 1
January starting at noon. Pizza and beer (and left over cheer) will be
provided. Sign up in the clubhouse.
