In the Fall of 2020, the lovely piece of waterfront property at Yankee Point was transformed into an outdoor recreation area! None of this would have been accomplished without the generosity and hard work of the "Fun Committee" volunteers along with all the time, talent, and donations from several of our club members. The "Fun Committee" volunteers included Buddy Spencer, Jay Hornick, Betty Tidwell, Ethel Gibbs, and Billy McCarty. They put their brains and their brawn together and came up with a fabulously fun Games Court. They had help from several other volunteers and contributors of items and equipment including Eddy Whichard, George Bott, Charlie Costello, Warren Ryan, and others. Yankee Point Yacht Club not only boasts a kayak launch (aka “flume chute”) and a new six-boat kayak rack, we also have courts set up for bocce ball, horseshoes, and corn hole! To top it all off, we also have a fantastic bonfire pit!
It's always great fun to see members gather around the various games, challenging one another. It’s like watching everyone’s "inner kid" come out to play! It's great being outdoors, visiting with good friends, enjoying lively conversation and lots of laughter. Naturally, food and drink are always part of the mix, as well. We have lots of chairs and quite a few sturdy picnic tables. We can cook over the open fire or use the gas grill down at the games Court, so we'll often bring dinner!
Typically, during the slightly cooler months with weather permitting, we get together on Wednesdays in the late afternoon down at the waterfront. We try to get started around 4:00 PM. We might play some games or just sit around the campfire enjoying some great conversation and laughs. The games are open to all members and their guests any day, any time, but our “casually official” get-together is in the middle of the week on Wednesdays. Our traditional Wednesday night Happy Hour is also going on indoors up at the clubhouse, as always. On the coolest of evenings, the gas fireplace inside the clubhouse provides a little ambiance and warmth until spring says goodbye to the chilly months and hello to warmer months.
