TYC Family Day - August 26, 2017













TO THE HARBOUR (Rain or Shine)




This is an event not to be missed. Great if you have children, grandchildren and friends and neighbours to bring....equally great if you come yourself with your inner child! Activities are for adults and children. Come when you can and stay for the afternoon/evening.

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP so that the organizers have some idea of the numbers.


10:30 - Laser Racing a.k.a. Try Out a Laser (Steven Wimmer)

Meet at the launch ramp by the Harbour Masters Office. Don't have a laser, don't dispair. Steven Wimmer will be taking out the Limestone and folks wanting to try out a laser can do a 'transfer at sea' to give it a whirl. PLease bring your own lifejacket.


Noon - Picnic lunch 

Bring your own lunch and join fellow members in the pavilion for a picnic lunch


1pm - Remote Control Demos and Racing (Steve Fisher)

Right after lunch come to watch, cheer and to try your hand at a remote control sailboat. Have your own boat? be sure to bring it! Have another type of remote control boat - bring it as well!


2 pm - Team Boat Building Competition - for kids and teams of all ages (Jenn Perks)

While you are touring and snacking, children are invited to come  for a variety of old fashioned carnival activities under the direction of Jenn Perks. If children are under 8, please have a parent or adult stay with them. Please meet on the grass by A dock (if raining, meet in the pavilion)


5:00  BBQ starts in the pavilion

Barbeque sausage on a bun, caesar salad, chips and dessert are provided. Please register on-line for this so that we ensure we have enough BBQ. What is a barbeque without s'mores? Bring your own marshmellow sticks and make a s'more after dinner is over.
