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 7, with our old friend Matt McConville and his trio. Matt and his group are popular with EYCers; if you aren't yet familiar with his eclectic style and repertoire, come find out why.
We'll celebrate Fathers' Day on June 21 with an appearance by the Sunny Isle Blues Band, another perennial favorite, to accompany a fabulous Chicken & Ribs Barbeque (more details soon).
July will bring live music (TBA) for the July Fourth Independence Day Party, but our Sunday afternoon sessions for the month will include the always-popular Ellis Woodard on July 19 and the New Orleans-style blues of the Stubby Knuckles trio, who were such a hit last summer, on July 26.
August performances are still being booked, but it's not too early to mark your calendar for August 2 and 16. The season (sadly) concludes on September 6.
As always, the music starts at 4 p.m. and it's a guaranteed good time. See you there!
Celebrate July Fourth at EYC
Can you believe it? July Fourth is here. This year’s EYC celebration should be really great, with live music from Major Company (remember them from the 2014 Boat Show Bash?) starting at 5 p.m., a sumptuous cookout buffet, and, of course, the best seats in town for the fireworks.
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), with no limits on numbers this year. NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED!
The club will be open for lunch noon - 2 p.m., when the kitchen closes to beging preparations 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 ($7), chicken sandwiches ($8) and hot dogs ($5), served with cole slaw, chips, and a pickle, a la carte right off the grill.
