Fourth of July Celebration

All Hands

 A birthday celebration common to us all is fast approaching, so we want to remind everyone about our traditional "Fourth of July" BBQ.

Our celebration officially begin this year with a “Parade of Boats” at 3 PM on the 4'th of July.  All members should arrive one hour early to ensure getting on a boat and being at the starting line on time.  All boats are expected to be proudly flying our nation’s colors.  Our celebration will continue at the club following the parade.  As always, this is a bring your own food stuff to barbecue affair.  The club will provide various soft drinks, adult beverages, and desserts.  Three BBQ units (2 gas & 1 charcoal) will be available for use.  All you need do is grill your own stuff.

After dark fireworks viewing from the club is always spectacular.  With no crowds or seating issues to contend with, the rocket's red glare and bombs bursting in air on all sides of us, can be easily viewed and enjoyed.  At times in the past, we've also been treated to an impromptu close up fireworks display.  Those are never sanctioned though, so providers will remain nameless.

This is a very casual event, but it still needs to be prepped for appropriately.  So please RSVP to this email by July 1'st & let us know how many in your party will be attending.  The courtesy of your reply will be greatly appreciated.

Thx, Frank
