Picton Jazz Festival Cruise

John and Karen Kitney are organizing events around the 12th annual Picton Jazz Festival Cruise (2019). The fleet will depart Thursday, August 15, to overnight at Prinyer Cove for those available.

 

We are planning to organize a group dinner for Friday night (August 16) and then attend the 8:00 pm Regent Theatre Concert featuring June Bunnett and Maqueque (a 6-woman Cuban rhythm jazz phenom). A limited number of tickets have been pre-purchased for KYC ($42 each) and can be claimed by calling Greg at the club office to have these put on your club account. Additional tickets can also be purchased on-line at https://www.theregenttheatre.org (Select “What’s On” – “Events Calendar” – “Stage” and bear in mind that the good seats are selling quickly – additional on-line charges will apply).

 

Details for opting into the Friday dinner and any other weekend activities (such as the Saturday night performance of “Every Brilliant Thing” by the Festival Players) will follow as they become available. Dockage will also be arranged for the group. Please contact John Kitney if you are interested in participating in this weekend event, either by boat or by car. In the meantime you can check the 2019 program for other Jazz events that you might want to catch on their own. Visit http://www.pecjazz.org/schedule.html,

Thanksgiving at Jemmett’s: All Comers Event

For most of us, a last good sail and weekend away to enjoy our Club property. Potluck Thanksgiving supper early on Sunday afternoon. Will the famous “Road Kill Turkey” make a reappearance? A great way to close out another season on the water.
