2013 Memorial Day Weekend Extravaganza

 

Greetings Sailors! 
 
The weather has finally turned warm and hopefully we’ll see some blue skies for our Memorial Day Weekend Extravaganza...our first official event of summer!  This is normally a busy weekend with family and friends, but hope you’ll join the Club for at least some of our activities.
 
Here’s the plan right now:
 
Saturday, May 25:        3:00 P.M.        Club Fun Sail to the Bridge and Back;  this is not a race!  I encourage all club members to come out and enjoy the afternoon with a leisurely sail towards the bridge.  If you don’t have a boat but would like to sail, be at the dock by 2:45 to be paired up with a boat or make your own arrangements with your favorite skipper.
 
Saturday, May 25:        5:30 P.M. (approximate)    Potluck Dinner on the Dock.  We will fire up the grill and the Club will provide hotdogs, buns and condiments ONLY.  Please bring a dish to share as well as your own beverages.
 
Sunday, May 26:        1:00 P.M.    30+ Fun Race (for the BIG boats!).   Those with smaller boats or no boats invited to come crew with the “Cruisers”.
 
Sunday, May 26:        6:00 P.M.    Second Annual Low Country Boil (aka “Frogmore Stew”) Feast. We made this delicious concoction last Memorial Day and had a great time doing it!  For those of you who’ve not had it, “Frogmore Stew” is a huge pot of steamed shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn: a delicious, hot and messy meal!  Please bring a side dish or dessert and your own beverages.  We are asking for a $5 per person contribution to offset the cost of this meal.
 
Monday, May 27:        8:15 a.m.    Skipper’s Meeting, Third Spring Race.
 
Monday, May 27:        Following the Race:    Pancake Breakfast
 
I will be sending out updates during the week with any additions or changes to this schedule.
 
Hope to see you all on the dock this weekend!
 
Commodore Gayle
