News Flash - July 4th at Berkeley Yacht Club

Dear BYC Member and lover of things that go Boom! Your club will alive next Wednesday, July 4th, with a pre-fireworks member potluck beginning at 1700. It's a member pot-luck of sides, salads and desserts accompanied by grill your own $5 veggie and traditional hot dogs and burgers.

Let's play some music in the bar. I'll have my Guitar with me that day. Bring your instruments- its a member music night! Lisa Bullett and I are on board as the officers of the day. Alexis will be on-hand staffing the bar with an Independence Day fun drink special. The city has the fireworks scheduled for 9:30 and there will be access restrictions. NOTE: Emeryville will close Frontage Road and Berkeley will close University Avenue from 1800-2200. Remember that the club kayaks are available for member use... Rear Commodore Mark Bird has suggested canoe and kayak races. Somebody's gonna get wet I think.

The 4th at BYC will be Members only. No open door as we did not apply for a special ABC license for the bar that day. There is plenty going on in the Marina to engage the public. Our clubhouse will host an open house again later this year in December for the Winter on the Waterfront and Lighted Boat Parade event. We'll see you on the bay, and then back at the club house on Independence Day, 2018!

Captain Chuck Bullett; Commodore
