The Texas Party had a great turnout, we had line dancing, bull riding and a real how down. Thanks to chef Nick for really good Barbeque (remember that’s a noun not a verb). Ken Chiarella lent us a state of the art smoker and we put 12 hours of smoke on tender delicious beef brisket. If you saw the smoker you saw it had special temperature probes, micro fans to keep the wood at the exact temperature, an overhang to keep the chef out of the sun, leveling legs and more.
A packed house enjoyed a scrumptious brunch with a seemingly endless array of foods prepared by Chef Nick and Anthony. We had plenty of photo ops with the Easter Bunny and all the kids got to run off some energy with the egg hunt on the beach.
On Sunday, December 2nd we had a record crowd attend our Annual Gingerbread event. A room full of elves constructed beautiful houses and drank hot cocoa. Some candy actually wound up on the houses.
Last Saturday Mother Nature gave us some wild weather, rain, strong winds and a very high tide that was dangerously close to the basement. Thankfully all turned out fine. The weather did however postpone the Family Halloween Party to Sunday afternoon, seems like a change for the better because we had a record turnout. Chef Nick put out some great treats at the buffet. Kids and adults came in some creative costumes; it was all treats, no tricks and a great time. Thanks to Shana Ciniski and Jana Bachner for arranging and supervising great activities for the kids. Sammy Maynard took over the emcee duties and coached the kids in a fun toilet paper mummy contest. Nice work all!!
Commodore’s Ball a huge success.
We had a grand time last Saturday and we celebrated the Commodore’s Ball. The room and all the guests were dressed in their finery. The band kept us entertained. Chef Nick dished up a sumptuous meal. Jenna and the restaurant staff provided exquisite service to our table and at the bar. We enjoyed hand rolled cigars on deck. Yes, it was on purpose that Charlie Walsh’s jacket actually matched the table cloths. Thanks to all for a wonderful evening and congratulations to Commodore Dickson for piloting the club through calm waters and a few storms over the last two years.
