Well, SCYC Trivia certainly had a Grand Finale Saturday night. General Manager Charlie Walsh played the role of Quiz Master to the hilt. Not only did he create entertaining questions for the categories but he had a costume for each. Players were speculating on how big his closets are at home. To name only a few, Charlie had wardrobe for a game show host, a Donzi racing team member, of course, a master chef, a New York Met, a fleet captain and the Bandit. Why did we not get photos of Charlie in the signature red shirt and cowboy hat? An opportunity lost. And Thank God he did not have a category on the Spice Girls! As noted in the last Happenings, knowing Charlie had been seen in Mets attire was a pretty good hint on what baseball team he would devote ALL his baseball questions about.
Of course, as is the norm, doing most of the work behind every man was Charlie’s wife, Jen, who knew what buttons to push.
If you know what a boning knife looked like, who was the Galloping Gourmet, how many states are on the Mississippi, where is the second oldest operating light house in the US and that Detroit Tiger great (not so much for the Mets) Mickey Lolich was another of the not so successful trades for the Metropolitans, you could have been the wining team. Oh by the way, Bella and Cindy do not have dogs, with some help this could be rectified.
Five teams played for the final championship of the season, The Show Me the Money, Sea Cliff Thunder, No Ideas, The Magnificent Seven (who have a counting issue) and Often Wrong But Never in Doubt. It was a close contest to the very end with the No Ideas coming away with the victory. Congratulations to the winners.
Thanks to Jen and GM Charlie Walsh for a fun filled evening and all the laughs. And thanks to Bella for being the “official” scorekeeper for the season. The games will continue next October. We look forward to seeing you there.
From Trivia Emcee, GM Charlie now will put on his Chef Hat and do a cooking demonstration next Wednesday at 6:30. Stop down and see how to make fresh pasta and a variety of sauces. Please reserve your spot so we know how much to prepare for a sampling.
It is almost time to begin the Summer Season. We will kick it off at Commissioning on Saturday May 4th. This is a Yacht Club Tradition and a lovely evening. Join us for cocktails at 1700 hours (that’s 5:00 pm for landlubbers) followed by a brief ceremony. Then it’s back to the bar to view the Kentucky Derby (that is our tradition) and then an evening of dining and dancing. Please make your reservations soon. If reserving online, please place your entree selections in the notes section on open table.
Before the ceremony we will host a New Member Open House from 4 to 6. What a great time to invite folks with interest in the club. Ok let’s make it an Open House weekend and invite folks down on Sunday too. Prospective new members are invited to view the club from 12 to 3.
Wednesdays through the season, our Pub Menu is available and is now being served in the Club Dining Room so we can enjoy the view. 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. Sunday the club will be closed enjoy the holiday.
