Dingy Ballet!

Attention all Grand Fourteen Yacht Club Captains: Queen City Yacht Club wishes to remind you of a very special event coming up on October 10 & 11th, 2008. We’re celebrating the 2nd annual Closing Day of Boating here at our Portage Bay Main Station. All Grand Fourteen members are encouraged to join in the festivities. A new special added feature for Saturday, October 11th 2008 is a Shore boat competition. A Dinghy Derby, a Boater’s Ballet, a Tender Tourney. Call it what you wish, this is going to be a lot of FUN! Here are the details: 1. Assemble teams of 2 or more boats to run your routine in a 10 minute maximum period. 2. There are 2 classes which you may enter. Your team can enter either or both, Freestyle and/or Choreographed. Deadline for entry is Wednesday, October 8th 2008 3. Freestyle is just that, you decide how your team will entertain the crowd. 4. Choreographed (The Big One) is where your team of captains decides which movements you’d like to perform before a crowd of thousands of spectators! You MUST give a detailed list of your planned movements to the Dinghy Ballet Committee no later than 24 hours prior to the event. Remember there’s going to be some nice prizes for the winning teams for these events! (A big jug of Crown Royal is one of them)! 5. Entries in either group will be judged on originality, precision of movements, and punctuality! Yes this will be a timed event in both classes so show up on time (that means early so you have plenty of time to party it up beforehand, and make more friends. 6. Performances will be held in the “U” in front of the QCYC Clubhouse between docks 1 and 2. Remember, THOUSANDS of spectators will be waiting for your presence, so come early, and join in on the new tradition of CLOSING DAY of BOATING, hosted by The Queen City Yacht Club.
