COMMODORE’S BLOG FOR MARCH 2013
A belated Happy Easter, April Fools Day and March Madness to all BackYakkers!
Well, March is over (came in like a Lion and went out like a Lion!). A special thanks to all who participated in the St Patrick’s Day dinner at the Kilarney House hosted by Bob and Gail O’Higginbotham and Ted and Pat O’Edmunds.
This Friday, the “Ritter Happy Hours” resume as Bob and Patti Bartlett host a “Favorite Hat” Happy Hour at their home in Epping Forest. So come on, put on your Maggie Thatcher hat, your Annette “mouse ears” or your “Flair Hair” visor and join your fellow BackYakkers out on the Bartlett’s deck. It stays light an hour later now…
Steve Bacon and Leslie Goodwyn will be hosting an Annapolis Pub Crawl on Saturday, April 20th. Join them for all or part of the ‘crawl’ (McGarvey's, Galway Bay, Ram's Head followed by dessert and coffee at their home on Duke of Gloucester St.).
The boating season is now just around the corner! The annual Season Kick Off/New Member Party will be hosted by Rear Commodore Bob and Gail Higginbotham at their home on Minnow Creek. Look for more details coming soon.
The BCYC South contingent is slowly (is there any other way?!) making its way back to the Annapolis area. “Fandango”, “Tug For Two” and “Quaich” are presently near the GA/FL border while “Indy” just arrived in West Palm Beach from the Bahamas.
Pam and I just arrived in Clearwater, FL after a 25 hour overnight trip across the Gulf of Mexico. We had a great Spring Break and Easter in Pensacola, FL and are now headed back north (at least it will be ‘north’ once we get across Florida).
Looking forward to getting back to Annapolis and joining everyone on the Bay.
