WHAT IS IT ABOUT OCTOBER?
Am I the only one with a full calendar? OMGosh, this month has been crazy and it's only the 11th.

Here's what we've got goin' around the Club. If these dates are not yet added to your iPhone or Android, make sure they get some space on your " TO ATTEND" list.

October 15th: Omelet Breakfast on the patio. Made to order omelets with all the fixings for $14.00. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's to boot! Where else could you possibly get that deal? With a view of the bay.... no where, but ABYC. Call in your reservation by this afternoon to the club.

October 21st: PROM!
By now you should have received your "official" invitation in the postal mail. If not, here are the basics:

Put on your best dressed attire and join us as we say goodbye to our beloved Chuck Clay and welcome to our own Kevin Brown! RSVP's due by the 18th of October to Sheila in the ABYC office. Or you can make your reservation online.
