Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The annual Blessing of the Fleet in April, Founders’ Day in October, 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, Seafood Bake, and much 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 Chairs Theresa Somes. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
Around the House: August 2017
I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th of July. The rain and the cancelled fireworks didn’t stop us from having fun at EYC.
Our Bastille Wine Bistro and Café with the special tasting of some wonderful French wines and perfectly paired with lots of French food was a huge success. We learned a lot about the wines from Amanda, who was our wine expert for the evening festivities. Stay tuned for more wine tasting events.
The fun continued on Sunday with Music on the Deck with Ellis Woodward.
The fun will continue in August. We will start off on Sunday, August 6, with Music on the Deck with Blue Suede Bop.
More fun to look forward to on Wednesday, August 16, otherwise known as National Rum Day. We will be placing a special burgee in our club that evening along with some Cuban food specials and a specialty drink. Come and enjoy a Special Rum Drink.
Join us on Sunday, August 20, for a Chicken & Ribs Barbecue with our own Grillmeister Mark Jones and sit back and enjoy Music on the Deck with 21012. Watch the Newsblast and Bulletin Board for more details.
Come to your favorite club on Monday, August 21, for the Eclipse/Blackout Party and watch the Solar Eclipse. We will have great food and drink specials and a few surprises, too. The eclipse crosses the Annapolis area at 2:43 p.m., so the club will be open for lunch, starting at noon that day.
The club is now serving lunch on Thursdays so come in and take a break and enjoy the view.
Reminder: the House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 in the conference room. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.

Celebrate July Fourth at EYC
Can you believe it? July Fourth is on the horizon. This year’s EYC celebration should be really great, with live music from Major Company starting at 6 p.m., a sumptuous cookout buffet, and, of course, the best seats in town for the fireworks.
Guest Policy: As in the past, EYC members and their immediate families who live under the same roof are admitted free, but there will be a $10 charge for guests ($5 for children under 11). In addition to immediate families, member guests are restricted to 2 non-member adults and their related children. For clarification on the EYC Event Guest Policy, please see here. As always, no reservations required.
The club will be not be open for lunch on July 4th this year, and will open for the July 4th festivities beginning at 5 p.m. This year we will be offering two dining choices: a casual buffet upstairs in the dining room will feature the usual burgers and hotdogs, plus fried chicken, barbecued ribs, and much, much more, all for $19/person, $9/kids. On the waterfront lawn, it's backyard cookout-style, with hamburgers ($6), chicken sandwiches ($6) and hot dogs ($4), served with cole slaw ($1) and/or chips ($1), a la carte right off the grill.
The barbeque on the lawn and satellite bar service will be cash only, so be sure to bring your wallet (and avoid waiting in the crush at the bar for credit card use).
NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, the party will go on as scheduled, with dinner and music, regardless of the status of the fireworks display.Read more ...
