This week at the Club

Summer is still happening at your club

 

Just because our programs are winding down it doesn’t mean summer is over yet. Our Children’s Summer Program and Jr Sailing finishes up this week. All the youngsters really had a great summer. It was amazing to see all those smiling faces for the last seven weeks. Thanks go out to all the counselors and sailing instructors that really made the kids feel comfortable all summer.

 

Last Thursday was a great night as the Swim Team celebrated the end of their season with the Annual Swim Team Awards Banquet. We had a packed house of swimmers and parents.  There was a delicious buffet dinner followed by awards and video presentations.

Everyone on the team was a winner of the Annual Ha Ha Awards and the following swimmer took home trophies in the age groups

Texas BBQ

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.

Palm Sunday & Egg Hunt

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.

Family Halloween Dinner

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!!
