The weather was lousy, but the oysters, food and physically distant fellowship was outstanding!  FBYC's Annual Oyster roast was a great success last Sunday with more than 100 members and guests participating in our Oyster Tailgate.  All wore foulies which we stripped off and tossed into warm cars once we had our fill of roasted and raw oysters.  Thanks to Social Chairwoman Carrie Russel and her crew for pulling off a memorable event.
