Thanks to all of our members who attended the 2015 Annual Meeting at Loews Hotel. The turnout was terrific and we unanimously welcomed back the entire Board of Governors for the New Year. In my world that is a great vote of confidence toward their efforts in 2014. As many of our members are aware the challenges they faced in 2014 were sometimes great. So congratulations, and sometimes condolences J, to the entire Board for their re-election.
I would also like to take a moment to congratulate Holly O’Hare for being the recipient of the A2B Volunteer of the Year Award. Holly’s contributions to the club have been great and she has worked tirelessly toward making EYC’s junior sailing program one of the best around.
Lastly, I would like to say thank you to Pam Ray for her terrific presentation on behalf of the EYC Foundation. The Foundation is doing a great job and looks to have a fabulous energy and plan of action for 2015 so please take a moment to read about their efforts. Keep up the good work!
The holiday season is upon us and the cheer and good spirit can already be felt here at EYC. Keep a close eye on the schedule for special events at the club such as the Annual Holiday Decorating Party and subsequent Holiday Pot Luck, the EYC Parade of Lights, Gingerbread House Building for kids, Kids First Friday, the EYC New Year’s Eve Gala and the list goes on. Lastly, note that the dining room will be closed on December 16th for a private event but the bar will be open as usual and serving both dining room and galley menus for your pleasure. We look forward to seeing you at your club soon!

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the volunteers who helped make this year’s Boat Show Bash run so smoothly. Particular thanks should go to the “head honcho” Carol Vilardo and her very capable sidekick Palma Wilson, who stepped in as chief for the operation of the event while Carol was on a much deserved vacation. The event ran seamlessly and although the turnout was less than what we had hoped for it was clear everyone had a terrific time.
We will be brainstorming in the next couple of weeks on the approach for 2015 and encourage your participation with the committee. We also want to remind our membership that the EYC Foundation and the Anne Arundel County Court Appointed Special Advocates for Kids (CASA) were the 2014 recipients of our auction proceeds and we are thrilled to be a part of their altruistic efforts.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for another fun party at the EYC clubhouse on November 8 immediately following the Annual Meeting which will be held at the Loews Hotel Power Plant.
Admission to the event is FREE and there will be some simple EYC “throw back” food options in addition to an open bar for beer, wine and rail drinks. The party commences shortly after the conclusion of the meeting and will last for 3 hours. So stop down and reminisce with your friends about the good ol’ days!

The J/80 Worlds Regatta is just around the corner. The excitement is growing toward yet another EYC international regatta. The events surrounding the event are numerous and I remind you to keep an eye on the calendar as well as the VFB and Blast for information pertaining to the event and the impact on the clubhouse and operations. Let’s make this yet another shining example of what our “little club than can” can do!
I wanted to take a moment to welcome our new Sous Chef, Matt Crane, to our hard working kitchen staff. Matt brings a broad breadth of experience to the position and we look forward to his culinary contributions. Matt will be assisting Henry, our Executive Chef, in a number of areas in the kitchen and build upon where Larry Harland left off. Please make him feel welcome and, as always, we welcome your comments and requests as it pertains to the menu offerings, so don’t be shy!

The J/80 Worlds Regatta is upon us! By the time this article is published the international regatta will be well underway. Please join us in showing our competitors and guests what it means to be among the amazing EYC community. Our Race Committee and J/80 Worlds Organizing Committee have done an amazing job of putting together a world class regatta and should be congratulated.
August 1, 2014: As many of you may have heard, two of our hardworking management team are moving on to greener pastures. I wanted to take a moment to thank our accountant Donna Glessing and our chef Larry Harland for a job well done.
The commitment and connection with our membership will be missed and we can only hope to fill their positions with someone close to their level of expertise. Although both could have been considered “behind the scenes” staff members their contributions were broadly recognized and they will both leave EYC a better place than when they found it. I will personally miss their camaraderie and good nature and I hope to see them as guests at the club soon. Best of luck to you both!
