SCYC

This week at the Club

Coming up this month for the Holidays:

 

Sea Cliff Yacht Club Trivia, new game, new teams. Take a break from the Holiday stress and enjoy some “friendly” competition. This Saturday night, Dec. 15th is our monthly trivia night.  We are changing Trivia up a little bit and rewarding monthly winners every month!  Each night for the rest of the year will be its own competition. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team each night.  New teams will be forming, so come down and join a team. We would like to have a least four teams every night, so if we have three teams or less, teams will be reconfigured in order to get more teams and more competition.  So take a break from your holiday commitments and come and win a prize.  New players are not only welcome but fresh brains needed. The bar is open at 7:00 and competition will start at 7:30. Snacks and dessert will be served. No light supper.

 

We will keep the celebration going on Sunday, December 16th with our Annual Brunch with Santa starting at 11:30AM. Santa will be paying us a visit and giving a little treat to all the kids.

 

Very limited reservations are available for seating in the Regatta Room.

 

Rudolph will be leading the sleigh to the club at 12:00 noon sharp (Eastern Standard Time not Sea Cliff Time) so don’t be late and miss an opportunity to see Santa. Enjoy a wonderful buffet brunch prepared by Chef Nick and Anthony. For the adults we will be featuring a make your own Bloody Mary Bar with assorted garnishes, hot sauces, and juice.  Please reserve early with the link below or call the office. We need to let the elves know how many goodies to put on the sleigh for the kids. Dinner will not be served, but the brunch is available to all; with kids or not. We will NOT have dinner service on Sunday December 16th.


What better way to relax and enjoy an evening at the club than with the T’was the Night Before the Night Before Christmas Party. This year we are really going to celebrate with a traditional holiday buffet, DJ Entertainment and dancing. So join us Sunday, December 23rd starting at 6pm. Reservations required by December 19th.

 

It is holiday time and also time we recognize the hard work of our dedicated staff. If you have already given to the Employee Holiday Fund, thank you. If you are planning to do so just a reminder that your holiday gifts will be distributed at the employee holiday party on December 20th and all contributions should be in before then.

 

Wednesdays through the season, our Pub Menu is available in the Regatta Room. Stop in, play some pool, darts or shuffleboard, and enjoy a good meal and a beverage or two. The bar is open Friday from 3pm and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. We will be serving in the Club Dining Room on Friday with our ala Carte menu and a few specials. This Sunday we have brunch with Santa so no pub menu or dinner will be served.

 

Finally, as the celebrating nears the end, we will be having our Annual New Year’s Day Brunch on January 1, 2019, beginning at 11:30am. This event typically sells out so reservations are a must.

 

Please remember the club will be closed from Monday, December 24th through Thursday, December 27th so our hard working staff can spend time with family and friends.

 

 

Looking ahead to next week we will have our traditional buffet on the Night Before Thanksgiving on November 21st.   You have enough cooking to do on Thursday, so bring the family down Wednesday evening for dinner. We will be serving from 5:30pm and early reservations are a must. This event fills up quickly.

Wednesdays through the season, our Pub Menu is available in the Regatta Room. Stop in, play some pool, darts or shuffleboard, and enjoy a good meal and a beverage or two. The bar is open Friday from 3:00 PM and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. We will be serving in the Club Dining Room on Friday with our ala Carte menu and a few specials. Sundays we will feature the pub menu served in the Club Dining Room from 1 pm to 3:45 followed by the Buffet Dinner. Please reserve early as we need to provision and staff properly.

Football season is here; enjoy a game, sip a drink and hang out with friends at your club. Order up some wings and enjoy canned beer specials during the games on Sunday.

It is time to clean out your lockers and take your small boats home. This needs to be ASAP. Any boats not removed will be considered abandoned and be disposed of or auctioned. There is no winter storage at the club. The racks need to be maintained and the locker room cleaned. Please cooperate and remove your personal items ASAP. Of course if you are a frostbite sailor your lasers or sunfish may remain on the beach.

Commodore’s Corner

It’s been cold, no doubt about it, but we’re almost half way there. Spring springs in another forty-nine days and we just may make it.
So what’s there to do ‘til then? In addition to all of the winter activities – from frostbite sailing to Tea parties, Trivia to shooting trap – I would add one more suggestion. Join a committee.
General Manager Charlie Walsh does an extraordinary job of keeping our club shipshape, and the staff is uniformly excellent. But there is still a mountain of business that gets done every month by volunteers. We need people who are willing to commit to sharing ideas, writing invitations, fundraising for the ALIR, making telephone calls, bringing in new members, and a host of other duties that all need to get done. These volunteers are the true heart of this Club and we could not operate without them.

Volunteering is the easiest way to make the club your own in a very special way. You will meet new friends and find new strengths in old friends. There’s plenty of scientific evidence for the idea that social interaction is as, or more, important for a long and happy life than either diet or exercise — just the kind of thing that you get from working with a group of committed like-minded volunteers. So call the office, get the names of the committee heads, and get involved. Live forever! Why not?

Change of Seasons

This year the Sea Cliff Yacht Club will celebrate “Change of Seasons” event this Saturday, November 4th marking the end of the summer season and the beginning of the winter season. The Flag Officers and Board of Governors would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to you and your family to attend. The gathering is scheduled for 1630 hours (that’s 4:30 for the landlubbers) with the Change of Season Ceremony to begin shortly thereafter. A reception with cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres will immediately follow. Anyone interested in attending may contact the Club office at 671-7374 or use the link below to reserve.

We will waste no time getting frostbite sailing going after Change of Seasons. It will take place every Sunday beginning November 5th weather permitting. Trap shooting starts on Saturdays on November 11th, and this hearty crew shoots no matter what the weather.

Wednesdays through the season, our Pub Menu is available in the Regatta Room. Stop in, play some pool, darts or shuffleboard, and enjoy a good meal and a beverage or two. The bar is open Friday from 3:00 PM and at noon on Saturday and Sunday.

We will be serving in the Club Dining Room on Friday with our ala Carte menu and a few specials. Sundays we will feature the pub menu served in the Club Dining Room from 1 pm. Please reserve early as we need to provision and staff properly.

Football season is here; enjoy a game, sip a drink and hang out with friends at your club. Order up some wings and enjoy a Sam Adams Boston Lager special during the games on Sunday.

Autumn is upon us and, once again, it is time to clean out your lockers and take your small boats home. This needs to be done by Change of Seasons, November 4, 2017. Any boats not removed will be considered abandoned and be disposed of or auctioned. There is no winter storage at the club. The racks need to be maintained and the locker room cleaned. Please cooperate and remove your personal items ASAP. Of course, if you are a frostbite sailor your lasers or sunfish may remain on the beach.

Our next Trivia Night is coming up quickly, Nov. 11 at 7:00 PM. Tim Hyland is the November host. Those of you may remember that last time Tim has a passion for the presidency and National Parks. This is not to say he may be going down the same path, as they say, “past performance is not a guarantee of future results”. New player and teams are always welcome.
