RPYC Seafood Festival is October 18
The menu has been finalized and will consist of the following: Spiced Steamed Shrimp, Fried Oysters, Crabcakes, Fried Fish, and Don’s Clam Chowder.
We are asking for members to bring sides based on their dock. Members on A and B Docks are asked to bring an appetizer to share. Members on C and D Docks are asked to bring a side dish. Members on E and F Docks are asked to bring a dessert. This will assure a good mixture of awesome food to share.
We are also asking for some help to make this Seafood Festival is a success. We’re looking for volunteers to help with breading oysters and fish, cooking, serving, running fresh hot food to the buffet line, and then helping with clean up.
We will start the day’s festivities from 4:00-5:30pm with Smoked Oysters on the grill and the appetizers supplied by club members. At 5:30pm we will open the buffet line with servers so everyone can have the delicious seafood that our volunteers have prepared. From the buffet line you can proceed to a table that will have side dishes. Last but not least, if you still have room for dessert, we will have a table dedicated for dessert.
Guest are welcome at a small fee of $15.00 per person. Exact change is most appreciated.
At 7:00pm we will have our elections for the 2015 year. Later on in the evening, around 8:30pm, we will set up the fire pit by the boat ramp for a relaxing bon fire. Members that play musical instruments are asked to bring them for a informal jam session.
Please let us know if you are planning to attend and how you’d like to volunteer. RSVP to Rear Commodore Chris Griggs.
