We received a lot of great feedback from our
Survey Monkey questionnaire of the members regarding the
event Formally known as the “Awards Banquet”
This year's “End of Season Bash”
is a celebration of Duck Island Yacht Club - which includes
cruising, racing, and social activities. It is our
intention to have a slide show playing during the party
highlighting these various activities- you can help by
sending us your photos from your season's adventures. We'll
also be asking our cruisers to share funny stories from
their destinations along with their photos.
Most importantly, this End of Season
Bash will not be the traditional awards banquet. In
the past, you've had to sit thru 72 cycles of people
receiving trophies. Not this year!
All Fleet trophies will be available
for pick-up at the party, but we will only be presenting the
major Perpetual Trophies- we promise this portion of the
party will not exceed 30 minutes!
