In memory of Dick Cole (Past Commodore, 2003, who passed away earlier this year) the Cole family is making a contribution to the Club for the oysters this year.  Thanks to their support we are able to keep the cost to $5.00/person.  Dick always supported FBYC racing and social events.  His presence around the oyster table will be missed.

Claim your bragging rights!    Bring your favorite dish.  Competition was so fierce last year, we've decided to add appetizers as a category to go along with categories of chilis, savories, and desserts.  We will also be going 2 deep.
