Family Sleep over at the Clubhouse!

This event is designed to bring families, kids, and kids at heart together for a night of fun at
the clubhouse. Bring your tents, sleeping bags, and games to the clubhouse and enjoy a camp out at the clubhouse. We build a fire, make food, desserts, have activities for the kids, and watch movies.
If you don’t like to pitch a tent in the cold come pitch it inside the clubhouse. Bring your PJ’s or comfy clothes as we hang out by the fire. If you have a land yacht we have spots for those also. We
will have games and a projector for movies, so if you have a favorite game or movie bring it. We will have the clubhouse open about 2pm. for whenever anybody wants to show up to get a tent spot.
The plan is to make homemade pizza’s Saturday night and we will have breakfast the next morning. Please RSVP to Mike Sisk

Clubhouse Cleanup/Shakedown Cruise @ SYC Clubhouse
Apr 8 @ 8:00 am – Apr 9 @ 11:45 pm
It is spring cleaning time again and time to spiff up the clubhouse for Opening Day festivities. Mike Sisk will be looking for volunteers who are ready to roll up their sleeves and don the gloves for some deep down cleaning. We will have more details from Mike in the March newsletter on specific tasks that need to be done and any equipment that will be needed … pressure washers, etc.
This is actually a really fun event because we only spend half of Saturday cleaning and the more volunteers we get the faster we get it done! We start around 8-9am. with coffee and muffins and then work until noon or 1pm. Then we all fire up the engines for the short cruise to Coronet Bay (just east of the Deception Pass bridge) for a potluck appetizer Happy Hour, a bon fire and music if any of our musically inclined members should be joining us.
Please let Mike know if you are willing and able to lend a hand.
