The YAMs had an epic inaugural derby day picnic this past Saturday, entertaining 35+ attendees of all ages ranging from 1 to 50+. Sporting dapper pastels and big dazzling hats, the YAMs began assembling at 1pm in the club’s upstairs for a roaring day of good friends, classy tunes and some good ‘ol fashioned horse races.
Overall the day was highlighted by delicious dishes, tasty signature cocktails, a build-your-own derby hat & sash station, and a compliment of lawn & table games for the kids. Besides the general merriment of the group as a whole, it was clear that everyone is excited to be welcoming warmer weather for the summer sailing season.
Perhaps some of the most excited participants included those non-member guests, some of whom were keenly interested in what the club has to offer for membership. The club owned boats program was on display prominently and we saw several folks voicing interest in how that could help them get on the water faster with their young families.
BIG THANKS to our event hosts/organizers Maria & Miles Kimbrough and Katie & Arch Durham. They did a phenomenal job orchestrating a well-planned day providing a great menu and fun for all ages.
We would also like to extend our sincerest thanks again to the club’s General Manager, Brian Ankrom… Brian dove right in to proactively help get us setup in the venue, ensure we had everything needed, and even donated his own computer to provide music for the day!
