Happy Hour is always Hot
The Cruising Fleet continues to be as active as ever with their happy hours on the second and fourth Friday of the month. Piggybacking on these nights is the Membership Committee’s “Membership Recruiting Fridays Happy Hour” where you can show off your clubhouse to potential new members.
New Events in the Month of March
We have two new events, Celebrate the Grape and AYC Remembers scheduled in March. Celebrate the Grape is a new wine tasting series that highlights certain types of wines from around the world. This month, we will explore wines from South America. We hope to see you on Thursday, March 4 in the Skipjack. Please call for reservations. AYC Remembers is scheduled to take place on the evening of Tuesday, March 23. The event is going to highlight the history of your club by turning the Skipjack into a museum filled with items from our club’s past. As many of you know, there are always surprises to be found and we look forward to sharing them with you. Dinner will be served on the third deck. The cost for this fabulous event is $18.86. Please call the front desk to make your reservation.
Friday, March 5 marks the return of the Capitol Steps show at the St. John’s College Francis Scott Key Auditorium. On Wednesday, March 17, Captain Bill Band of the Maryland Pilots will be the star of our Wednesday Night Lecture Series. He will discuss his “View from the Bridge” of the Columbus Ohio, the commercial vessel that he calls his office. This month’s children’s movie night is Friday, March 12 and we will be showing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs –a movie based on the bestselling children’s book by the same name. Our Yoga classes will continue on Saturday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 16. The ever popular Y-A-C-H-T night is scheduled on Friday, March 19. Please call the Front Desk to make reservations.
