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!
Around the House: May 2017
We had a very busy month in April with our Rum & Cigars night and then a fabulous Easter Brunch complete with a moon bounce and an Easter Egg Hunt for the children and we even had a visit from the Easter Bunny who enjoyed having pictures taken with the kids.
We also had Tucker Thompson’s America’s Cup Presentation. Stay tuned for an America’s Cup Party.
The question – “If all drinks with Ginger Beer are mules, why do they call it a Dark and Stormy” has been answered at the April Speakeasy. If you missed this one, watch for the next Speakeasy.
This month has us busy starting out with Cinco de Mayo featuring some wonderful food and of course Margaritas. (And we heard there could be a strawberry one for us.)
The annual Mothers’ Day brunch is on May 14th and reservations are required for this always popular event.
The Commodore’s Reception is Saturday, May 20th, coinciding with the Preakness. Commodore Ersts has requested the ladies don their fancy bonnets to enter the “Best Hat Contest.” Gentlemen, we do not want you to be left out of this competition so you are asked to wear your finest headwear and also enter the “Best Hat Contest.”
Who is going to win the competition? You need to be there to find out and this is going to be a great party with excellent food and beverage.
On Sunday, May 21, come and relax and enjoy the film screening of “Eastport 21403”.
There's a peninsula attached to Annapolis, MD by a solitary bridge. Some time ago when the bridge closed, a personality and energy of the people who live there began to grow and grow.
Rowing Stone Magazine called it "The must-see movie event of the year!" Live a year in the life of an Eastporterican, remember the man beneath the cape and discover the town that answers to the name EASTPORT, Maryland.
The Blue Angels will be flying again this year, May 23 and 24. If you are new to Annapolis this is a work-day stopper of a show with the Angels flying directly over the clubhouse and close enough you feel you could touch their wings.
This is a restricted event for EYC members with limited guests. On Tuesday, EYC members and their immediate family (under the same roof are free), and accompanied guests ($10/each, no limit of guests on Tuesday only). On Wednesday, EYC members (free) and are limited to 2 per member number ($10/each).
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.
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, and this is a restricted event for EYC members* with limited guests, so please take note:
- On Tuesday, EYC members and their immediate family (living under the same roof) are free, and accompanied guests are $10/each (cash only) with no limit of guests on Tuesday.
- On Wednesday, EYC members are free and are limited to 2 guests per member number at $10/each (cash only).
- EYC Waitlist Members are invited to come on Tuesday as guests at $10.00 each but will not be able to bring any guests.
Come and enjoy what most locals already know: that Tuesday is the better day to watch the show due to its longer duration and lesser crowds. Of course, all the same food and beverage will be available both days. You will need to check in at the gate to obtain your wristband to receive service.
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 ...
