BERMUDA HIGH PARTY
Saturday, March 25, 2017

Home of Greg and Kathy Ullmann
5004 Old Millrace Court
Glen Allen, VA 23059

$15 members, $20 non-members

Festivals and Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’ come to mind on the Spring Equinox, but one tradition within the FBYC community brings a little foot freedom….The Burning of the Socks.  Did you know that, according to the Annapolis Maritime Museum, the act of sock burning began as a tradition in the town of Annapolis, MD, in the mid-1980s?  It is celebrated in conjunction with the spring equinox, when day and night are equal length everywhere on Earth.  In the boating community, it is frowned upon to wear socks and shoes between the spring and fall equinox.  

We will build a bonfire and burn our (cotton) socks, socialize with friends new and old, and meet new ones, and enjoy good food, drinks, and music.  So dig out your shorts, sundresses, blazers and flip flops from the back of your closet and come party with your fellow FBYC comrades at the much-anticipated Bermuda High Party. We are going to shake off those winter blues and warm up for the impending spring! We hope to see you there!!

 

Please register online by Wednesday, March 21st.
