Poker Run 2021 - August 21st
By Land and Sea?

Discounted Poker Run sheets are available for $20 via the CRYA website until August 14th! $25 per hand until the start of the Run.
Columbia River Yacht Club will be hosting the Poker Run. On the website is the sign up form, and information on what the day will have in store for you. The CRYC Galley will be open for lunch from 11 to 1 and we will be checking in everyone there for your Poker sheets during that same time. Start filling your hands at 1 until 4pm. There will be 5 land and 5 water based destinations to draw cards. You can mix and match any of these to create your hand. Once complete you can return them to CRYC for tally. Columbia River Yacht Club has offered CRYA members to join them for a Hot August Nights Event starting after the Poker Run. $25 per person will get you a BBQ Brisket dinner as well as a live band for the evening. A great chance to meet club members and see how they do events. For sign up and other information, follow the LINK

Sponsored by: Sheffield Marine Propeller

Online sign up is on our website for both teams and singles. We also have an option for sponsor signs. If you or someone you know would like to be a hole sponsor, or any other type of sponsor we have lots of choices for you. The whole team does not have to be CRYA members. Get a team of your friends to have a great day of golf. Profits from the Golf Tournament are used for making up the difference of club dues to cover operating expenses of the organization, but also to fund projects such as the Martin Slough docks, and other future boating facility upgrades. Teams of 4 cost $360 with Individual cost of $90 until August 30th. After August 30th it will be $400 for a team or $100 per person. Lunch, cart, golf, swag makes this a great day.

Sign up HERE for Team and individual sign up.
Cruise Schedule Submission Updates!

On August 1st, we started taking submissions for the 2022 Cruise Schedule dates. Jolene says that most everyone has already gotten in their schedules to her, and those that haven't we are contacting to complete the process. She says that everyone has been very good at working out any conflicts of dates. If you have any questions please let Jolene know and she can address them. Thank You to all the clubs that got right on the task of getting your requests in for dates!

Safe and Happy boating,
Jolene Coats-Walsh, Publisher and CRYA Media Liaison

Updates and Additions to the website

Our goal has always been to make a one stop shop for you to get information on what is happening on or around the boating community. You can now find past issues of the monthly newsletter available for download under the News section of the website. We continue to try and streamline how we get news to you. If you have things you'd like added to the Calendar for your club events email us at
The Daughters of Neptune Updates

The non-profit corporation known as CRYA Daughters of Neptune has been dissolved in order to more effectively get insurance coverage for the group under the CRYA umbrella. We most likely have a bit of change coming to our Standing committee in order to effectively fold them into the system and keep the program going. We do have a need for someone to come and champion the continuation of the tradition into the future as long time Leader Vicki Justice will be retiring at the end of this year. We do thank her for the work she has done in the past as well as to get the needed work done to dissolve the corporation. Let us know if you can help!
