Commodore's Corner

Commodore Larry Parrett

Hi everyone:

I hope everyone is looking forward to our next monthly meeting on Tuesday Oct. 8 – usual time, usual place – the Eastlake Grill with the room available for drinks and food starting at 4:30, and the meeting starting at 6:30.

Our next HHYC event is the annual Halloween Party during the weekend of October 25 through Oct. 27.  The Evite has been sent out and the online payment option is on the website – hope to see many of you there!  As in years past, our Commadorable Keli has made arrangements at the Suquamish Tribe’s Clearwater Casino for the Chief Seattle Suite for our hosts, P/C James and Julie Life and P/C Mike and Sue Burke, where we will have the costume party on Saturday evening.  The full list of activities for Friday and Saturday are shown on the Evite, as well as the details for reserving a room at the casino’s hotel.

There is also an Evite out for the “Pay Your Dues” party, which is being hosted this year by P/C Rick and Sharon Lee.  The venue will be the Queen City Yacht Club on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 5:30 to 11:00 PM.  There will be a buffet dinner by QCYC chef Willie, live music by Flock of Beagles, a cash (coupon) bar and an auction.  Bring your money and dancing shoes!  We will discuss this event in more detail at the next monthly meeting.

Vice Commodore Jeff Quinn is planning out his calendar of events for the 2020 boating season, and is also seeking recommendations for the next Rear Commodore.  Please bring any suggestions to our next meeting, or send them to me or another member of the Bridge.  I know as your current Commodore that Jeff will welcome all suggestions and input, since the success of the club is based on all of us contributing ideas and helping hands.

Hope to see many of you at the next meeting.

All our best and happy boating in 2019!
Commodore Larry & Commadorable Keli Parrett
