Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The annual Blessing of the Fleet in May, Founders’ Day in November, a gala Holiday Party in early December, and the now-signature New Year’s Day Pot Luck Extravaganza are some of our fun events for members, plus a variety of terrific (and delicious) events including a Bull & Oyster Roast, Crab Feast, and more. Of course, we have the best seats for the annual performances of the Navy’s Blue Angels during USNA Commissioning Week, and the July Fourth fireworks display.
EYC also has plenty of family-oriented events, including monthly Family Movie Nights, Junior Sailing events and cookouts, and many children’s events such as the spring Easter Egg Hunt, summer Ice Cream Social, and the Gingerbread House Building Party in December.Want to get in on the ground floor for the fun? Join House Committee! Meetings are held first Wednesdays of the month, 6:30 p.m. Or contact Co-Chairs Carey Kirk and Mark Jones. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
Food and (Holy) Water
Sunday, May 8, is Mother's Day and the Blessing of the Fleet. Start off with a wonderful brunch followed by the Blessing of the Fleet, including boats in the yard and marina as well as any other member boats that tie up for the occasion.
Mother's Day Brunch begins at 9 a.m. this year and features some great springtime items in addition to the usual favorites. We can guarantee you'll want to make reservations so you won't miss this great event. Cost is $24.95/person for adults, $12.95/children. Early Bird pricing for those in the first seating (please be prepared to give up your table by 11 a.m.) is just $18.95.
Make reservations through the office only. Call 410-267-9549.
We are fortunate to have the Reverend Jeff Paulson to officiate and bagpiper Randy Welch returning this year for the ceremony!
Those who have boats on premises, please try to "dress" them or display your burgee proudly. Bringing your boat to the club for the event? There are rumors of an award for the "best dressed" vessel parading past the club. Stay tuned for details. The Blessing begins at 2 p.m. with a memorial to those we have lost during the past year and continues with an individual blessing for every vessel in the marina and on the premises, as well as those moored and passing nearby.
If you can’t bring your boat to the club for the event, never fear – once again there will be vials of blessed water to take away and share with your vessel wherever she lies.
Blue Angels Return May 24-25
The fabulous Blue Angels are scheduled to reappear over the Severn River on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 24 and 25, for their traditional rehearsal and air show. The deck and yard at EYC are, obviously, among the finest spots in the area for an up-close view of the spectacular aerobatics.
This is understandably one of the most popular of EYC events, so please take note: EYC members and immediate family are welcome free of charge; guests ($10 each) are limited to 2 per member number on Wednesday. Bring as many guests as you like on Tuesday and let them enjoy what most locals already know to be the better day to watch the show due to its longer duration and lesser crowds. Of course, all the same food and beverage offerings will be available both days..
The club will open at 11 a.m. both Tuesday and Wednesday, and a buffet-style lunch will be available. There will be ample seating on the lawn as well as on the deck and two lunch options will be available. Upstairs in the dining room, the lunch buffet ($16/person) will feature hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, and anything else seasonal and delicious chef comes up with. Down in the yard, it's backyard cookout-style, with a la carte hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and hot hogs, served with potato salad, chips and a pickle.
The barbeque on the lawn and service at the satellite bars will be cash only, so be sure to bring your wallet!Read more ...
