Clubhouse Cleanup/Shakedown Cruise @ SYC Clubhouse
Apr 7 @ 8:00 am – Apr 8 @ 11:45 pm

The annual spring club cleanup is fast approaching. Our work list has been lightened a bit. Our focus will be on pressure washing the decks and walkways, raking up the grass areas, window cleaning and a once over on the club interior. We will work from 8:00 am until about noon. After that, it’s off for our annual shakedown cruise to Coronet Bay State Park. ( exciting details below! )

*** We would love to see everyone at both events, but we do understand busy schedules. If you can’t make it to the cleanup, please come for the shakedown cruise/chili feed!

The Stinson’s and Ruth’s will be bringing pressure washers.
We are in need of someone to bring a truck to be used to haul leaves, light brush, etc. to the dump.
We will need a few rakes, both hard and soft as well as people to use them!
Misc. cleaning supplies will be provided

Coronet Bay Shake Down Cruise & Chili Feed

The Ruth’s will be hosting a chili, cornbread and hot dog feed dockside at Coronet Bay. Adult beverages will be provided. Those attending are invited to bring an appetizer, a side or dessert to share. (The chili is my mother in laws famous Blue Ribbon “not too spicy” 7 bean recipe, whom I intend to draft to make it to ensure I don’t screw it up. I am so sure that you’ll love it, I will give you a 100% money back guarantee! )

Dock space is on a first come first serve basis. Don’t worry, we expect plenty of space this time of the year. But… if it gets full, we’ll just raft together! We are the SYC! There’s always room for more!

Pirates in Paradise @ Sucia @ Sucia
Aug 10 @ 8:00 am – Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm

This event was scheduled to be the annual Crash ‘n’ Burn. However, we have decided to take some liberties this year and change it to a good old fashioned campout with a pirate theme.
Thurs. 8/9 Big boats to land on the dock. Contact Jeff or Mitch if you can help

Fri. 8/10 Arrival of the fleet
6pm. BYOB & potluck appys. on the dock

Sat. 8/11
8am. Coffee & eye-openers on the dock
10am. Pirate ship auction
For those new to SYC, we’ll be bringing back the ever-popular pirate ship race (aka horse race) on the docks. This has been very popular because there are only 6 ships available (wood cut-outs) that are auctioned off to the highest bidder. In past years, these have gone for as much as $300 each so many boats pool their money together to win the bids. This is significant because half of the total money raised at the auction goes to the winner of the race …yes, it can be sizable! After you take possession of your ship, then you spend the morning decorating it for yet another prize for best decorated ship & captain. So bring your auction money and decorating supplies to maximize your winnings.
11am. – 2pm. Pirate ship decorating and perhaps a cribbage tournament
Dress up those boats and yourselves to strike fear in the islands with SYC’s armada of its scariest pirates and ships. There will be prizes awarded, of course, for the best dressed/decorated.
2pm. – 4pm. Pirate ship race
6pm. Potluck dinner in the picnic shelter
Bring a dish to share, plates & utensils. (If you bring extra guests, but sure to bring enough for everyone)
A-I Main dish
J-R Side dish or salad
S-Z Dessert
For those with musical abilities, please bring your instruments and if anyone can bring some wood for a fire that would be great.

Sun. 8/12
8am. Coffee & eye-openers on the dock
Noon Departure of the fleet
