BCYC – The Scene
As members of BCYC, you have the opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded soul mates who love the water, whether cruising, sailing, paddle boarding or socializing. With our fleet that includes a Harbor 20, Duffy, paddle boards and kayaks, you can enjoy the beauty of Newport Harbor in one of the club’s water craft. Check in at the club office to get information about requirements of use.
Another great way to enjoy BCYC is devoting time to participate on one of the many committees at the club. You can be involved in helping to execute club improvements (house), planning and producing events (activities), providing input on ways to attract new members and retain current members (membership), and organizing the details of an upcoming cruise (cruise). Committee meeting schedules are published in the weekly update sent to all members electronically each Wednesday.
As part of the ongoing facility upgrade, the upper level now has new double-pane windows that will greatly help with noise reduction and energy efficiency. In the card room/library area, because of some careful planning, the view and lighting in these rooms are greatly enhanced. Make plans to hold your next special celebration here!
The Commodore’s Ball was fantastic, beyond my wildest dreams! Dee’s and my personal thanks go out to all, including everyone in attendance, who made this evening truly memorable. Particular appreciation goes to those members who opened their homes for the pre-ball cocktail parties: Tom and Jane Fallon; Allan Horowitz and Gail Cyprus; Jacques and Sally Sopkin; along with their co-hosts, who made each party special. This wonderful evening was accomplished due to the tireless efforts of event coordinators Kari Konapelsky and Lauri Moffett – wow!
Opening Day, May 12, gives BCYC another great opportunity to celebrate our 60th anniversary. The ceremony portion of the day is filled with pomp and tradition. Following that, the dock parties are also filled with tradition – great munchies and libations, with crowds on the docks enjoying the day and members’ boats. If you want to help with the 60th festivities and dock parties, contact Kari Konapelsky and Secretary Rhonda Tolar for guidance.
