47 Members and Guests enjoyed the 8th Annual Wine Tasting Social
Forty seven (47) members and guests attended this year's 8th Annual CYC "Betty Brown" Wine Tasting Social that was hosted at Jim and Kathie Nihls' home on April 13. Attendees enjoyed spectacular appetizers, four fantastic wines and had a chance to catch up with friends after a long (and not done yet) winter. Thanks to Dennis and Suzanne Hug for supplying the wine and coordinating the presentation with Scott and Tyler from NWS distributing.
Kathie and I would like to thank all of our Committee Members who did such a great job in coordinating this annual event . Although the weather was not nearly as nice as last year when it was 72 degrees, all had a great time. Finally, thanks to all who attended for making the evening a true success. For those of you who could not make it, please enjoy the photos on our website.
CYC's Flannel Fling .... Wow what a great Party!
CYC's Flannel Fling was a great success and the sunny weather cooperated to keep the cold tolerable. Forty two (42) members and guests braved the cold at the Sportsman’s Club for the "Outdoor Games" and chowed on the homemade goodies. The party started at 3:00 PM with refreshments and at 4:00 PM the outdoor games commenced. The frozen fish toss, golf putting and the frozen turkey bowling were great fun. Everyone joined in and cheered which made it enjoyable for all. It’s not as easy as it looks! Trophies and prizes were awarded to the winners of each event. A prize was also awarded to the craziest, ugliest and funniest flannel outfit. Below are the happy event winners. Bob Nissley won both the golf putting and 50/50 drawing. Bob donated his 50/50 winnings to the Clubhouse Fund. Thank You, Bob!
