Maybe April Will Bring REAL Spring!
We’ve already had some hints of warm weather--a day or two, here and there, but then cold winds or a surprising snow storm wipes that hopeful smile right off our faces.
Outfitters is always ready to put a smile right back on, regardless of weather follies. Right now the new Danskin cardigans are moving fast for good reason. They are very stylish with an asymmetrical front closing and soft and snugly to wear. Both the slate blue and pale green are eminently suitable for all occasions.
Mid-April will feature many new temptations. Because of your requests, we will have new light weight sweatshirts for warmer weather in Coral, Tidal Blue, Pewter & Mist. These are all in unisex sizing. From Port Authority we will offer a soft shell jacket for women in Royal Blue and Red and one for men in Charcoal and Navy. Both are 100% waterproof and breathable. Also for women, a full zip heather jacket will be available in Raspberry and Pearl Grey.
Another new offering for men is a Legend Windshirt that will come in three color options: Navy with white trim, Tan with navy trim and Red with white trim. These will be great on the water when you need just a bit of protection between yourself and the elements.
Finally, don’t forget to grab your camera and/or phone to start getting great pictures of spring arriving in Annapolis and at EYC. Outfitters will soon have an e-link so you can download pictures directly.
There’s a lot of talk these days on the media about ancestry. Where did we come from? Just provide some saliva, send in a few bucks and back comes a pie chart showing ethnicity and geographic origins.
Ever wonder just how EYC came about? Well there’s a short blurb on our web site and new members get a brief brain dump on EYC’s origins, but these are snapshots at best.
Several years ago, a small group of old hands started gathering data on our club. Meeting minutes, photos, newsletters and anything that spoke to our origins quickly filled a filing cabinet, several boxes and part of one of the club’s store rooms. Stories, anecdotes, and recollections of our founders, past commodores and long time members gave further life to the hard copy. The idea of doing a book that traced our history and video-taping the early members quickly evolved.
This three year effort has resulted in a book, Eastport Yacht Club: Back to the Future 1980-2015, and an accompanying DVD of first hand accounts. $30 and available from Outfitters!
