The Manager's Desk
October 1, 2016: It’s that time of the year again in Annapolis...Boat Show season! I am sure the vast majority of our members have enjoyed the show as an attendee, exhibitor. or otherwise but if you haven’t had the pleasure you are missing out and should take some time to enjoy all of their offerings. Also note that EYC is the perfect respite from a long day at the show. We will have terrific Boat Show food and drink specials and we won’t be nearly as crowded as our downtown neighbors. Don’t forget the water taxi can drop you off right at our back door when the day is done!
Restricted Boat Show Parking
Just a reminder to all of our members that the Yacht Haven parking lot is NOT available to EYC members on Saturday and Sunday of both the power and sailboat shows. Evening parking after 5pm Monday through Friday is unchanged. Please respect our neighbors and don’t infringe upon their spaces on those weekends. The relationship with Yacht Haven is important to the club and we don’t want to inconvenience our great neighbor. Of course, the main EYC lot will be available as usual but be reminded to have your 2016 parking sticker affixed to the front driver’s side windshield. The club will be vigilant in our enforcement of the parking policies and we don’t want to see any member’s vehicle towed. Stickers are available at the bar and from the EYC office. Enjoy the show!
You may have seen the notices in the club or in the weekly Blast but don’t forget to opt in to receive your Annual Meeting materials electronically. Help keep your dues low by saving the club the printing and mailing expenses while also doing a little good for the planet! Additional information can be found on the members' side of the website.
Please be advised that the marina will undergo its annual winterization during the first week of November. Please plan appropriately and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
A quick shout out to our favorite Member Services Manager Amy Reilly, formerly Amy Wales, on her recent nuptials! We couldn’t be happier for her as she enters into this next stage of her life and wish her nothing but the best.
EYC has short term leases available in our slips for those individuals who may wish to take advantage of racing out of EYC for the annual Frostbite races. Contact me for rates and availability and reserve your slip now.

OK, I agree it is a little early to be thinking about Frostbiting but it’s never too early to reserve a slip for the season. EYC has short term leases available in our slips for those individuals who may wish to take advantage of racing out of EYC. Contact me for rates and availability and reserve your slip now.
Private Event Discounts through September
It may be hot outside but it is never too early to begin planning for the holiday season! For those who like to plan ahead we are offering a great incentive to hold your business or personal holiday party here at EYC. All members who book a private event in September will receive a 25% discount on the facility fee for use of any available event space in November and December 2016.
And if that were not enough EYC is also waiving the entire facility fee for confirmed bookings made in September for daytime events in the lower level conference room during the months of November, January or February with a minimum $500 food and beverage spend. So whether it is an office outing, a holiday party or your kid’s birthday party celebration we have a space for you!
July 1, 2016: It certainly feels like summer in Annapolis. This time of year always reminds me of why I enjoy living in such a wonderful town. The waters are full with people enjoying their boats, downtown streets are bustling with shoppers with ice cream cones in hand and the EYC deck is in full swing with members enjoying a cold cocktail, a terrific bite to eat and a great view.
July is packed with fun things for club members of all ages. As if enjoying the best view in Annapolis weren’t enough, the month starts off with a bang (literally) with the July 4th celebration, followed by the Chesapeake Stand Up Paddleboard Challenge, the newly revamped Boomerang race, St. Michaels cruise, powerboat classes, Junior sailing and the list goes on and on.

August 1, 2016: What a terrific summer this is becoming! Last month we had great weather for our Boomerang event, Standup Paddleboard Challenge and of course the hugely successful Latitude Adjustment Party. Once again we have solidified that EYC knows how to throw a terrific race event and an even better party afterwards! The attendance was terrific at all of those events and we were able to help support the EYC Foundation as well as throw some money into the coffers.
August is always a slightly less active month than the Spring and early Summer months but that translates to more room to enjoy the club. Of course the CRAB Regatta (8/20) and the Magothy River Cruise (8/13) will be fun events in August, but many of our members take time off in August to vacation which means the deck and dining rooms aren’t as full as those busy months. Therefore, it’s a terrific time to take advantage of the a la cart offerings at the club. All of our regular weekly specials like Pub Night, Prime Rib Night, Burger Night and many more will be available all month so we look forward to seeing you soon.
June 1, 2016: One of the club’s busiest months of the year is now behind us but the summer season is just beginning! The club is alive with activity this time of the year and of course the outside deck overlooking the water is the perfect place to be to enjoy the start of another great EYC boating season.
Keep an eye out for all of the terrific House Committee events planned for June. Of course June means that EYC will once again play host to the Leukemia Cup on the 4th. The club is attempting to set a new record for donations so please come down and enjoy a cold rum drink and enjoy the evening while supporting the greater good.
