What to expect at a General Meeting:
DYC holds monthly General Meetings during the off-season: January, February, March, September, and October. (November is when we have our Commodore's Ball and the installation of officers ceremony. December is the Lighted Boat Parade.)
These meetings are normally held at 6 pm on a Saturday night at the Milltown Sailing Association club house. The address is 1400 W Marine View Drive, Everett, WA 98201. The building is located in the same parking lot as the Everett Yacht Club building at the Port of Everett.
Meetings are casual and we always have a pot luck dinner before getting down to business. Each person/couple is asked to bring a dish to share. You should also bring your own dinner plate, bowl, utensils, napkins and your beverage of choice (adult beverages are fine). There is a kitchen in the club building with basic serving utensils, a stove, and a fridge. If you plan to use, please make sure to wash and replace everything before leaving. Paper and cleaning products are not typically provided. Also please wear your name tags.
After dinner, the Board will lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance and then we will get down to business led by our Commodore. All members are encouraged to participate and feel free to ask questions or make comments.
After the meeting is adjourned, everyone helps to put away the tables and chairs and clean up after ourselves. Some months include a themed party such as our annual costume Halloween party in October. All club member birthdays are celebrated during the February meeting, with White Elephant gift exchange. Any special party or theme will be announced on Meet Up.
If you have any questions about the club, please ask anyone on the Board. We’re here to enjoy great cruising, good food, fun friends, and happy times!
