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 5, with an appearance by the Sunny Isle Blues Band, another perennial favorite. This will be the perfect way to relax after your efforts in support of the 24th annual Annapolis Leukemia Cup Regatta and awards party, and to gather energy for your role at the Latitude Adjustment Party on June 9!
We'll celebrate Fathers' Day on June 19 with our old friend Matt McConville and his band. Matt and his group are popular with EYCers; if you aren't yet familiar with his eclectic style and repertoire, come find out why.
July will bring live music from Major Company for the July Fourth Independence Day Party, and our Sunday afternoon sessions for the month will include the always-popular Ellis Woodard on July 17 and the multi-talented Dan Haas on, on July 31.
To close out the season, look for Mike Miller on August 14, the Magnetics (otherwise known as the Frank Garcia Band) on August 28, and the 21012 Band (formerly the River Rats) on September 11.
As always, the music starts at 4 p.m. and it's a guaranteed good time. See you there!
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 ($17 adults, $9 kids) will feature hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, and anything else seasonal and delicious our 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 ...
