This month, I would like to highlight the Junior Board of Directors, as well as the Junior Events Committee. As you probably know, we have an extremely active and very successful Junior Sailing program at BCYC. Our junior sailors have won many awards and accolades and are clearly the best group in the harbor. Our juniors are also our future JFlag and Regular Flag members. The Junior Board, with their advisors, Kelly Brennan and Mark Groenhuyzen, are very active in fundraising for junior sailing. They work to support many events, including Ducks for Bucks, The Gala and Poker Night. Also, applications are now being taken for the Junior Board of Directors. Don't be surprised if a Junior Board of Director member is one day a BCYC Board of Directors member.
The Junior Events Committee, spearheaded by Rebecca Corbin and Lori Curtin for the past four years, is another wonderful junior support group that helps plan for junior family events that take place at the club throughout the year. These include Pumpkin Carving, Game Night, the Camp Corinthian parent/sailor mixer, Friday Family Night, the Christmas Ornament Decorating party, along with participation in the Junior Award Banquet. Additionally, JEC also supports many other events and activities, such as the Junior Support Crew and The Gala. Remember, the juniors and JFlag members are our future, so welcome them and get to know them when you have an opportunity to do so.
