Pot Luck Dinners are the BEST!!!
The Scotts provided these wonderful beer-steamed crabs Bobby caught himself. This is only one of the many tasty dishes that were served at our latest Pot Luck Dinner. It's a shame that so many missed it!
By the way, the club needs your support and participation even at Pot Luck Dinners. Due to the closures early in the year we are running a bit behind plan. The bar suffers from low attendance in the summer months and we need about 60 folks eating to break even on catered meals. If you are in town, please come to the club on Fridays!
Port Messick Breakwater Project
The city has received funding to install two breakwater barriers east of the club.

Saint Patrick's Day Celebration
Perhaps a little early this year, but PYC celebrated St. Patrick's Day Friday evening March 13--just testing our luck! Andrea held a Pub Quiz afterwards. By the way of quiz questions: How many of us know that St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineers, or that he was, in fact, an Englishman?
