SCYC

This week at the Club

“I’ve been slimmed Ray”

 

Spirits roamed our beach last Sunday as we had Movie Night. A nice crowd gathered to watch the original Ghostbusters. The weather was great, not to hot, not to cold. The kids enjoyed popcorn and s’mores and the adults had a few beverages to stay warm, can’t get that at many movie theaters can you?

 

Sailing News

Thanks to an enthusiastic team, the remaining Ideal 18’s were hauled last weekend. The tide and weather cooperated. This made quick work of the task. Our next gathering (social) will be Saturday, November 2nd, at Change of Seasons. We have some sailors to recognize. Please plan to attend and make our sailing presence known. Oh, and frostbiting starts on Sunday, November 3rd. Thanks for a great season.

Here is what’s coming up:

 

Regatta Room Pub menu is back served from 5pm in the cozy Regatta Room starting tonight. The Culinary team headed up by Chef Nick will also be preparing some delicious meals to be served at Friday Dinner and the Sunday Pub Menu. Football season is here; enjoy a game, a bite of lunch, sip a drink and hang out with friends at your club and watch the game on the big screens in the Regatta Room. Please make your reservations early for all meal periods so we are properly staffed and prepped for service. We request that reservations for all dining be made 24 hours in advance but please no later than 1pm the day of. 

 

Friday, October 25th, is the Club’s Annual Meeting at 8 pm. Please come and vote. This is an excellent opportunity to hear reports from the various committees and find out what other improvements are in store here at the Club. Come down for an early dinner and be part of the process.

Our Family Halloween Party is coming up on Saturday, October 26th and will kick off Halloween weekend this year. The party will be from 12pm-2pm. Hey adults don’t be shy to wear a costume, too — it might just get you a free drink at the bar. There will be plenty of treats and maybe even some tricks along with a great buffet luncheon for the kids and adults. Please call, use the link below, or email the office to reserve your spot.

 

This year the Sea Cliff Yacht Club will celebrate our 127th “Change of Seasons” event on Saturday, November 2nd 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. This is a great opportunity for seasoned members and those new to the SCYC family to experience a long time yachting tradition and a great time.

Sea Cliff Yacht Club doesn’t roll up the sidewalks, or the dock for that matter, in the winter. On the contrary, the Club is open and active through the winter months.  There are many ways to enjoy time on, and around, the water with friends and neighbors.  The full service dining opportunities and bar are open for members and guests three nights a week throughout the winter months. We also host monthly parties and special holiday events. The wood burning fireplaces in the Main Dining Room and our Regatta Room Pub will set the mood for dining and relaxing all season.

Along with the dining and social events you can try your hand at frostbite sailing every Sunday beginning November 3rd, and trap shooting is scheduled to begin on Saturdays starting November 9th.

 

Autumn is upon us and, once again, it is time to clean out your lockers and take your small boats home. 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.

 

2019-20 Trivia season begins this Saturday!!!!!!!

The first Sea Cliff Yacht Club Trivia Night is this Saturday at 7:00PM.

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.
