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!
Hot Fun in the Summer
It's that wonderful time of the year: Music on the Deck Season! And the lineup is great.
The fun begins this year on Sunday, June 7, with our old friend Matt McConville and his trio. Matt and his group are popular with EYCers; if you aren't yet familiar with his eclectic style and repertoire, come find out why.
We'll celebrate Fathers' Day on June 21 with an appearance by the Sunny Isle Blues Band, another perennial favorite, to accompany a fabulous Chicken & Ribs Barbeque (more details soon).
July will bring live music (TBA) for the July Fourth Independence Day Party, but our Sunday afternoon sessions for the month will include the always-popular Ellis Woodard on July 19 and the New Orleans-style blues of the Stubby Knuckles trio, who were such a hit last summer, on July 26.
August performances are still being booked, but it's not too early to mark your calendar for August 2 and 16. The season (sadly) concludes on September 6.
As always, the music starts at 4 p.m. and it's a guaranteed good time. See you there!
Commodore's Reception May 16
Come celebrate the Preakness with Commodore Scott Miller at the Commodore's Reception on Saturday, May 16, 5 - 9 p.m.
EYC members should watch their snail mail for invitations to join our Commodore for "A Day at the Preakness." Live music by Unified Jazz Ensemble will be playing for your enjoyment while the televisions will be tuned to the Preakness.
Your $20 per person admission includes an Open Bar from 5 - 6:30 p.m. and an array of hors d'oeuvres to enjoy while watching the race and spending time with your friends and fellow club members.
In keeping with the Preakness, the clubhouse will be decorated with black-eyed susans, and the ladies are encouraged to wear their fancy hats for the contest for "Best Hat." The Commodore has chosen to dress up EYC for the day. Dress for the reception is Cocktail Attire / EYC Formal.
