2017 EYC Schedule

EYC Canada 150 Celebration and Season Beginning

Make your plans to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and the beginning of EYC summer fun. Saturday, July 1st 2017 from 10 am through noon please drop by to complete and pay for registration in the Erieau Sailing School and to register your year’s membership (and your boat – racing begins the next day and you want your points to count!)

Festivities start at 5 pm with appetizers and drinks with a celebration BBQ serving food from 6:30 pm. On the menu is BBQ chicken breast, bacon, BBQ Portobello mushrooms, salads and Canada Day cake. Peter Gilbert is providing DJ and Karaoke fun for dancing. We will end the EYC activity in time for everyone to head over to see the very special fireworks display provided by the Erieau Firemen.
