VYC’s Captain’s Care Club

Captains Care Club

The Captains Care Club (“CCC”) is a club within a club, of which all members are a part. The main purpose of the CCC is to organize fundraising events such as the very popular Rib-Off, arranged by all volunteer efforts that range from the organizing, cooking, cleaning and providing or sourcing silent auction items by donation from our members.  The funds raised from events such as these are deposited to a separate account within the Clubs account for purchase of items for the Clubhouse and grounds; purchases the Club may not have in the budget.

Another popular event is the game of Wack-Duck, hosted simultaneous with the Pig Roast.  A golf like game where a contestant purchases a rubber ducky for a minimal fee and a golf club is used to lobb the rubber ducky from the shore into a rubber dinghy set some distance into the basin.  The skilled contestant earning a hole in one wins a prize!  Should there be multiple hole-in-one scores the game progresses to a “duck-off”!  Prizes are purchased by the CCC and proceeds raised go to the CCC account.

The CCC committee headed by Ken S, presently consists of additional members Bob M, Roger P, Ciy Y and Ron H.  This committee receives and reviews all suggested expenditures and makes the final decision on what items to purchase.  Though the Executive does not decide or determine what the funds are spent on, the decisions of the CCC Committee are presented to the Executive for approval.

Since inception of the CCC, the group has purchased one of the four TV’s, all the patio tables and two racing marks for the sailors.  Most recently, the CCC has purchased one of the two defibrillators.  You may recall in the past, there was a similar club called the First Mates who purchased a pool table, shuffle board table, BBQ and built the BBQ Pit.

Ideas and suggestions from the membership are encouraged and welcomed.  Please send your comments to Ken S (Maintenance) at VYC Maintenance or
