Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The Commodore’s Ball in late winter, the Commodore’s Reception and 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. 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 p.m. Or contact Co-Chairs Carey Kirk and Mark Jones. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
Trivia Night Returns!
Think you know a lot of useless information? Starting on January 15 and running weekly thereafter through March 19, bring your team to Trivia Night on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
For each Trivia night, there will be two rounds of 12-15 questions each from a variety of subjects. Expect to find questions on anything and everything including history, cinema, geography, pop culture, science plus nautical terms and rules of navigation.
Maximum team size is 4 participants; each non-member participant must be matched by an EYC member/spouse (in other words, if you bring two guests, your team must also include two members). Each team will put up $5; the winning team earns half the pot with the remaining cash going to the EYC Foundation.
