2013 Holiday Party

Rita Wieczorek
Over 50 RMHYC members and guests had a wonderful evening at Anglers Restaurant celebrating the holiday season before some were scheduled to return home to friends and family. The party coordinator was Kathy Conley, M/V Fantasy whose husband, Commodore John Conley was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Kathy was assisted by Social Chair John Cummings and his wife Diane aboard M/V Duetto. Attendees were from both marinas and homes in the Abacos, the latter, affectionately referred to as “dirt people.”

The evening began with cocktails and appetizers on the back deck of Anglers at 5:30 pm, where we renewed old friendships and got to know some of the Club's newest members. The mood was casual and festive and with the abundance of cocktails and conversation, one could not help but have fun!


Dinner included a champagne-vinaigrette salad with fresh breads and a main meal choice of either lobster tail, lamb chops or vegetarian lasagna, each served with colorful and delicious sides. The meal was completed with a mini pumpkin cheese cake presented on an artfully decorated plate with a hand drawn holiday candle. While this event is traditionally held at Anglers, many commented that this year's meal was the best in memory.


Commodore John Conley introduced new members of the Club and his wife, the event coordinator who did such an outstanding job. Kathy thanked all of the resort staff who made this event so successful, especially chefs Frank, Charles, and Charles “the second;” as well as Andrew Sweeting and Kristi Wong, whose leadership and coordination ensured a successful evening.


Musical entertainment was provided by Estin Sawyer who backed up Past Commodore Jim Fenn as he led us in song. Jim delivered his signature rendition of “I'll Be Home for Christmas” and got the group singing along to a few Christmas favorites before several couples made their way to the dance floor.


At the end of the evening, many members lingered to say their goodbyes and to wish others joyous Holidays and a safe return.


While this was the first big event of the season, there are many more to follow and we are all looking forward to “The Souper Bowl” in January. Members should review the web site event calendar and tune in to the 8am morning meetings on channel 78, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, so as not to miss out on any of the fun.
