2023 HISC Family Picnic
The annual Family Picnic was held on Saturday, March 25th at Quiet Waters Park. Scheduling the event to follow our Youth Sailing Spring Class was the perfect way to guarantee we got the "families" to attend. We had approximately 60 Adults and 15 kids. We enjoyed a beautiful, breezy spring day.
Kudos to Carl Wehe, our Grill Master, for cooking 72 hamburgers, 36 hot dogs and loads of chicken plus warming up the baked beans. All on one tiny park pavilion grill. Suze told me they would do it, and they sure did.
Dessert Judges were chosen from among the former Commodores present. (Sorry Mike! Our current commodore was still coaching the youth sailors.) After small samples were tasted, they place "stars" on their choices. Several contestants earned at least one star. Our winner, Beverly Simmons (Barry's sister-in-law) earned five stars for her Peach Cobbler. A very close second place, with four stars, went to Regina Chasse for her Pina Colada Cake which was so cleverly decorated with a ship on top and gummy sharks swimming around it.
I was a little nervous about hosting this event. But you're never alone at HISC. I received plenty of help! Astrid Hunton & Mike Megarity got me started with club supplies from our storage locker. Joyce Klein loaned me two great coolers. Marie Graham and Barry Soloway came bright and early to help set up and decorate. Suze & Carl Wehe prepared the food. Norma Glanz brought extra ice. The Duvall family brought extra charcoal. And so many others got involved. Bringing desserts, judging, helping to serve and finally, pitching in to clean up. It was a great experience.
HISC Sailing Club is the best!
