September 1, 2013: Sadly our first season of boating has but a few weeks left so we encourage all of our members to take advantage of the great weather before the cold grip of winter places us in its grasp. Make the time to get out on your boat and enjoy your club with family and friends. Often life’s mundane necessities take us away from our most pleasurable activities and we have to push our favorite leisure and social activities back to the top of the list.
Come down with your family and friends and enjoy a leisurely afternoon on our deck while enjoying the view, a cold rum punch and terrific meal. Don’t have a boat but would like to get out on the water? Well, take advantage of the new EYC paddleboards that are FREE to our members. Invite a friend for a nice sunset and sit on the lawn afterwards and enjoy the view.
Too mellow for you? The Boat Show Bash is just around the corner with three bands featuring Dublin 5 (formally the Rovers), our own Tiki Barbarians and Major Company which will surely be good for an evening of dancing and fun. So push those household chores down the list and enjoy the pleasures of belonging to Annapolis’ most unique club…life is too short not to.
Boat Show Bash
The 2013 Boat Show is just around the corner and the behind the scenes activity for our annual EYC Boat Show Bash is building. The Special Events committee would like to reach out to our membership to volunteer for the club’s biggest party of the year. Whether it be volunteering during the planning phases or helping on the night of the event there is surely something for everyone.
Music on the Deck
Our annual Music on the Deck series concludes this month with the amazing music of the Sunny Isles Blues Band. This house favorite will close out the season on Sunday, September 15, from 4:30-7 p.m. If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing this fantastic band the founding members of Sunny Isle, Mark Ingino and Sunny Bryan, are mainstays on the Annapolis music scene. They held the honorable position as the renowned Maryland Inn King of France Tavern's house band for several years. Ingino and Bryan opened for the legendary John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame at Nissan Pavilion and shared stages with other national well-knowns such as Tom Princi. This blend of bluesy rock and American roots music is not to be missed …see you then!pato and Bill Kirchen.
Maryland's Eastern shore’s Rick Forrest opened concerts for blues greats John Hammond and Chris Smither at the renowned Rams Head On Stage; the listener can hear these legendary blues artists twist and turn throughout Forrest’s music. While paying homage to his blues heroes, Forrest manages to deliver his own unique concoction of effortless blues with an easy front-porch, foot-tappin' style comprised of smooth sultry vocals and masterful guitar work. Tracks off of Forrest’s latest CD, Things Change, are popular selections on many local artists’ set lists.
