    Every year our yacht club has a fun day on the water called Pizza Pigout. One of the members owns a chain of pizza joints so on this fun day boats from our club form a wagon wheel. Pizza orders are taken and sent into the pizza stores and, while they’re cooking the pizzas we’re partying. Hard partying. When the pizzas were ready the stores delivered them to the club and they were ferried out to the boats in dinghies.

    Our boat was the first one out there to drop the anchor then other boats formed up around us. By the time we were done, 58 boats were there and everyone was having fun. Instead of a full circle of boats as we’ve done in the past, this year we formed a horseshoe and had a band on a pontoon boat centered at the opening so everyone could hear the music. It could not have been a better day. Temps were in the high 80’s to low 90’s, there was just enough of a breeze to keep the air moving, zero clouds, darn near perfect!

    Here’s a few photos of the day….
    This was shortly after the first anchors were dropped and boats were showing up to join in. In the background you can see the ‘toon that the band was on.

    Here’s a shot from the shore of the horseshoe after most of the boats had arrived.

    The rest of these are pics that I took as well as some that a friend of ours took. She borrowed my camera to take some of her own. The camera is a waterproof Olympus so I wasn’t concerned about it getting wet.

    This is my daughter in law (the blond) and the friend who had borrowed the camera.

    They don’t look like they’re having any fun, do they!

    We pulled anchor around 8:30 and were one of the last boats to leave. Needless to say, a good time and good pizza was enjoyed by all.

    Does the pizza chain owner want to join a Vancouver yacht club, and by the way we are accepting applications from brewery owners, distillers, vintners and ice cream parlor owners :grin:

    " Wait a minute.....A HORSESHOE???? I knew you were a closet Colts fan! Go Colts! "
    Ummmm, I wouldn't bet on that. The horseshoe wasn't my idea, I was just a participant.

    "are those garages for boats in that first pic? "
    Greg's comment was a bit understated. They are boat houses and many contain living quarters with big screen TV's, nice bars, bedrooms, etc.

    "Does the pizza chain owner want to join a Vancouver yacht club,"
    I doubt it. His wife is more into horses than boating so it would not surprise me if they sold the boat in a few years. HOWEVER, When we come to your neighborhood I would be delighted to exchange the first couple of rounds for a night or two of reciprocal moorage.

    "I love boats. I love pizza.....and women in bikinis drinking."
    Quint, just 'cuz you asked so nice I'll share one more. Sorry about the water spot on the lens, but that's my daughter in law in the center, and yes a friend on the right, and yes both enjoyed lots to drink and lots of pizza.

    You're all welcome. We left our old yacht club last year because nobody up there boats any more. I tried for the prior couple of years to get some cruises planned and there is so much disharmony in that club that nobody wanted to boat with each other.

    We have boated and had fun, partied and played with Clover Island Yacht Club for several years and last year we decided to switch clubs. Over the years we've boated with them we've made a lot of good friends, we've been heartily welcomed into the club and even though we don't keep our boat there, we're welcome as members. Plus, an odd thing about this club.....they enjoy being on their boats and going places with each other. The club hosts a boating event (cruise, raft up, Christmas boat parade, etc.) at least a dozen times a year plus other parties at the club (St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, Christmas, New Years, Easter party for kids, etc.). It's also a much younger club (median age) than the old club so there are a lot more fun people to be around.

    THANKS CIYC!
