IT’S IN THE AIR-BOATING SEASON ARRIVES
Signs are everywhere. Winter covers are coming off. Sounds of scraping and sanding can be heard in the boat yards. Some days are just too warm for a coat and the snowboaters have begun the migration north. For BCYC, the last of the indoor events are complete and it is time to start moving outside. BCYC held a St. Patrick’s Day party on March 16, enjoying dinner and Irish music at the Killarney House in Davidsonville. The fun event was cohosted by Pat/Ted O’Edmunds & Bob/Gail O’Higginbotham and included great quantities of camaraderie, traditional Irish foods, and of course, a little beer. Of special note was the delicious homemade Irish soda bread. Also, former Commodore Bill Falk with wife Geraldine, were able to attend the event during a quick trip home from their southern adventures.
The southern BCYC contingent held a gathering on Florida’s west coast that was highlighted with dinner as guests of the Saint Petersburg Yacht Club.
The Club’s Spring Fling this year will take place April 20th. The event will be an Annapolis PUB Crawl to several downtown establishments for food and drink. The final stop will be at the residence of Leslie Goodwyn and immediate Past Commodore Steve Bacon, for coffee and dessert. A Happy Hour will be held on April 12, and then, the much awaited warm weather events begin. BCYC will hold their Boating Season Kickoff and New Member Party on May 4th.
