Hi everyone:

We just had our 2019 Halloween weekend event at the Clearwater Casino and Hotel in Suquamish, hosted by P/C Mike & Sue Burke and P/C James and Julie Life.  Special thanks to Commadorable Keli for arranging the Chief Seattle Suite and hotel rooms using her tribal elder discount.  We had a great turnout and a fun weekend that included cool costumes, karaoke, gambling, dancing to 2 live bands, fantastic appetizers, more karaoke and a Mexican themed dinner on Saturday night.

Our weekend included three couples – the Lifes, Burkes and Parretts – dressed in theme from the Big Little Lies Netflix show as “Audreys and Elvises”.  If you don’t get it, we’ll have to explain in person – it’s complicated. Terry and Dane Fantz were scary Rocky Horror Show characters, Doug and Jane Gomez were the Captain and Tennille, and John and Toni Keene were dressed as Navy sailors.  Kudos to the Gomezes and Keenes for their nautical costumes!  Unfortunately, Toni was under the weather so wasn’t able to join us for the party, but was with us in spirit as John led us through karaoke in the Suite on Friday and Saturday evenings.  Thanks again John for bringing your karaoke equipment!

Sunday morning we were able to take advantage of the early 10:00 AM Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons game, so the Lifes, Burkes and Parretts watched the game in the Beach Rock Sports Lounge on the giant 252” screen – and the Seahawks won 27 to 20 to get to a 6 wins and 2 losses record.  Go Hawks!

Our next event is the annual Pay your Dues party and auction on Saturday Nov. 18 hosted by P/C Rick and Sharon Lee at the Queen City Yacht Club, assisted by other QCYC members, including Kent and Carol.  See the newsletter for all the details.

All our best and happy boating for the remainder of 2019!
Commodore Larry & Commadorable Keli Parrett
