Commodore’s Celebration Set for May 14th

Let’s celebrate the end of our AYC year!
Members and guests are invited to join me for our annual year-end social event. Come early for happy hour, then sit down to a delicious dinner followed by the presentation of trophies, special recognition, appreciation, pats on the back, handshakes, maybe a few hugs, and last but not least, installation of your new board!

Speaking of awards, Blunder Bucket nominations are now open. We hope everyone has a chance to send in their nominations in advance of the dinner. As a reminder, the Blunder Bucket is awarded to the member with the best of the worst mishap from the past six months. Vice Commodore, Bob Naylor is standing by to receive your nominations. We will present the blunders at the dinner then all attendees will be invited to vote with their applause (and whoops, shouts and whistles).
