Membership has its benefits

Membership has its benefits

One new benefit is Wi-Fi. Our Tech man Nick Stellato has installed a Wi-Fi system throughout most of the marina. The basic service is included in your membership. An upgraded service is available for an additional nominal charge per month. Contact Nick for details at tech@bbyc.org.

In the last month a lot has been happening at your club. First I want to highlight the sumptuous Mexican Fiesta Dinner hosted by our members Jim Abell and Rosalba Benavides on September 14. Rosalba made all the food and appetizers from scratch and the meal was delicious. You too can make a dinner. Please call or email our Social Lauren Freed to arrange a time for you to cook a Saturday dinner for the club. Speaking of the Social position Lauren Freed now has two assistants on the Social committee; Emily Vought and Amy Riley. Both are extremely competent people to help Lauren with the position.

Another great meal will have happened by the time you read this, our October Fest Dinner on September 28th will have happened. Another great event to sign up is the Motown event and Membership dinner October 14th. 

Our member Bonnie Jensen is arranging the Commodores Ball which takes placed on November 16. This will be a formal affair with dinner and dancing.

Brian Hunt our Cruise Out Chair has arranged some fantastic cruise out to other clubs in The Bay Area this year. Thank you Brian. The next one is across the Bay to Sierra Point Yacht Club the weekend of October 19. Contact Brian to go across the bay and visit Sierra Point Yacht Club.

I want to thank our new Rental Chair Meg Damus for handling our Rental Chair position. Meg and Nick Stellato have been working on some great events for rentals. Meg and Nick have already managed a wedding and a birthday party that have made us some significant money. And just importantly the people that rented our club loved the experience. 

Our annual elections are coming up. Todd is head of the nomination committee. The two other members are David Alexander and Brian Kohn. Please reach out to them if you want to nominate someone.  October 12th at our membership meeting our Nomination Committee will announce their recommendations for the officer positions.  At our November 2nd Membership Meeting the election will take place.

That’s it for now. Enjoy your club.
