Social Committee Report - 5/3/19
Happy Cinco de Mayo, WRYC! We had a terrific couple of Work Days at WRYC in April! I offer my sincerest thanks to each and every one of you who attended and pitched in. We completed lots of much needed clean-up work including cleaning, scrubbing, and window washing - both inside and out! The Club is squeaky clean and looks really spiffy. Hopefully all who see it, members and non-members alike, notice this when you come by!
We have officially kicked off our summer season, and we have several social events coming up to look forward to! Please mark your calendars now for our annual Independence Day Social, scheduled for Thursday, July 4th. We anticipate that it will be a "blast!" Our annual Anchor-on-the-Ware is scheduled for Saturday, July 20th. Last year we proved that, even in the rain, this event is boat loads of fun!
We also have the 55thannual VA Governor's Cup Regatta scheduled for August 3-4. Please start thinking about how you might participate in facilitating this event. Its smooth execution relies entirely on volunteers as we welcome competitors and their families from far and wide! Keep in mind that we will have breakfast crews, registration teams, race committees, and the Saturday social to staff.
Please also come out Sundays to support our sailors participating in the Sunday Sailing Series. We encourage you to jump in a boat, but if you prefer sailing as a spectator sport, we would love for you to use the facilities you pay for to enjoy some beautiful weather and enjoy the view of our Albacore fleet on the move! See you at the Club!
