As the world navigates the ins and outs of Covid life there is some good news. Dancing is back on. Ron Bolin has sent us the latest update and his website has the calendar and information necessary to create your dancing schedule.
Dear Dancin' Friends,
Our annual trip to Mystery Bay and Port Ludlow started out wonderfully at Mystery Bay, with a bit of pre-functioing in Pt. Townsend. Two newer members, John Mc. and Marcie K. came out with their gorgeous boats and full SSYC crews to join other members for quite an amazing weekend. All in all roughly fifteen folks joined in the raft up at Mystery Bay. The Commodore and Past Commodore were unable to attend the Port Ludlow section of the trip but we have heard great things. Boat on!
Our amazing Past Commodore, Ro Berkley, is heading a committee to look into options to recommend to the board to potentially replace our Casual Membership structure. Any questions and ideas can be directed to our current Past Commodore. Thank you for your involvement and commitment to SSYC development. Better Boaters, Better Friends!
This year’s 29th annual Race to Fight Hunger has opened up for registration and is available through the calendar on the website. This year’s race is September 25th and Dan Kerns is our race chair with Roger Drill putting Hannah L into service as the Committee Boat. Thank you skippers for backing our 29th annual Race to Fight Hunger. Any questions can be directed to the Vice Commodore, Dennis Flynn.
Congratulations are certainly in order to our own Robin Cole, who along with the support of her team, Bunny Alexandroni, won the Goosebumps Cookie Bake Off, this year. Kari Ingalls has valiantly made ALL of the cookies for Goosebumps (with some help from her SSYC friends) in the recent past. This year we had five amazing teams of cookie bakers that baked for each of the five (one canceled due to snow) races. The ladies of SSYC outdid themselves yet again. BUT in an impromptu, not guaranteed, undocumented, survey, Robin’s brownies were proven to be the favorite among the Goosebumps racers. Just like a lot of the Goosebumps races, this one was almost too close to call. Congratulations Robin, for stepping up and kickin ars! Robin was awarded the cutest apron ever with a great goose motif. She also received a handy Tupperware container for her next batch! Bake on!
Wow, Opening Day 2021 is almost upon us. Always the first Saturday in May, this year we will be celebrating Opening Day of Boating virtually and on the water.
Seattle Yacht Club has prepared an amazing opportunity for yacht clubs to showcase their clubs via a video as part of a SYC Opening Day Virtual Parade but will not be having a live parade or Dock Zero event.
We have quite a photo archive built up now for SSYC but wanted to make another call for all members to please download your SSYC photos, of all kinds, old and new, and VIDEOS as well, to the SSYC File Cabinet.
Any question please contact the Commodore or Past Commodore. For more about this and other activities be sure to tune in to Monday meetings to get the latest news and updates.
Help pick the “Best Goosebumps Cookie of the 2021 Race Series”. This year we shook things up a bit and tried to up our cookie game. We had five different groups make different cookies for each race. It’s a bit on the casual side but its time to weigh in on your favorite Goosebump Cookie. Head to the Goosebumps Facebook site and put your opinion in the comments under the Golden Goose Award.
Goosebumps racers have had to wait an entire extra week to "get their race on" as the Seattle weather led to cancellation of the February 14th race - the fifth in the series. This Sunday, February 21st, we finish off the Goosebumps 2021 Race Series, welcome back Maestrale to the race, and follow up with a Zoom presentation of all winners. Good Luck Racers!!!!! Thank you Roger Drill for finishing off the series as our favorite (non-anchor dragging) committee boat/skipper!
Keep current on all the latest happenings at SSYC!
