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 Co-Chairs Theresa Somes and John Ryder. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
EYC Easter Events
Sunday, April 16, brings two traditional EYC Easter favorites: a special brunch buffet featuring the tried and true favorites and a few unique specials from Chef Henry. Although not required, advance, prepaid reservations are strongly recommended. The sumptuous repast, including a number of kid-friendly offerings, is available for $24.95 per person ($12.50 for children). Brunch service begins at 10 a.m.
Our other Sunday traditions, the Bloody Mary bar and mimosa/screwdriver specials, also will be available, as usual. Please note that in order to serve the maximum number of EYCers at this popular holiday event, a new 72-hour cancellation policy has been implemented. Details are available here.
At 1 p.m. our littlest members take center stage for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The youngest hunters go first, so being late can result in disappointment. Ages 1-4 will begin promptly at 1 p.m.; 5 and up at 1:15. Our friend the Easter Bunny will be on hand from 11:30 a.m. for photo ops with the kids.
Please make reservations for the little ones, and don't forget to bring a dozen pre-filled plastic eggs per child to the club by Friday, April 14, for hiding along with the other treats. Online registration is open. For more information, please contact the office at 410-267-9549.
Blue Angels Return May 23-24
The fabulous Blue Angels are scheduled to reappear over the Severn River on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 23 and 24, 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 ($18 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 ...
