One could rightfully ask, what do horses, seafood, and moms have in common? When you're talking about the 2018 season at Casper Boat Club, the answer is clear. These are the first organized events held at the Boat Club this season (excluding clean up day)...and what do they have in common? Success!
The Kentucky Derby Party was a success measured by anyone who was there. Betting buckets, wild costumes, contests/raffles, and great Derby themed food and drink, provided the 40 or so members and guests, a great ride while watching the race on the overhead TV. The decorations, food, and drink created an atmosphere that definitely gave everyone a sense of really being at the 144th Kentucky Derby. Too bad the Kentucky Derby happens only once a year!
The Icebreaker was the first big food event of the season. Cooks, Josh and Mike really showed their talents as they prepared and served (10 minutes early!) a fabulous seafood buffet. The almost 100 attending members enjoyed lobster, crab legs, scallops, and shrimp of various kinds, served next to prime rib and Chicken Marsala. And don't forget the cheesecake. The included red/white wine on each table along with drink service provided the "icing on the cheesecake." The staff kept the food coming and the tables cleared. Ask anyone who attended, and you'll hear something like, "the scallops were awesome; the cheesecake was wonderful; the crab legs were unending, the lobster was amazing." You get the idea. For a cost of $60, anyone who was there will tell you it was value beyond cost, especially when you include the camaraderie of the Boat Club community. The Icebreaker/Seafood Fest is back!
Finally, Mother's Day Brunch. Nothing need be explained about this special day honoring these special women. To honor the many mothers in the Boat Club community, the Club offered a great buffet brunch which included, prime rib and ham cut the way moms like it best, served alongside green bean casserole, scalloped potatoes and more. Breakfast items included croissants, sausage, pancakes, and quiche. About 70 moms/families attended during the brunch hours. The Club staff did a great job as a follow up to the huge success of the Icebreaker the previous night. How do they do it?!
If these early season events are any indication of what the Club staff can do, it looks to be a successful season indeed. Many thanks to Club manager Tim for his organizational skills. We want to thank Josh and Mike (cooks), and all of the servers and staff who made these three events such a success: Thank you Joe, Heather, Holly, Leslie, Raeanna, and Kalle.
The CBC members are eagerly looking forward to the next event. Members are welcomed to leave a comment. If you have questions about future events, please contact the Entertainment Committee or call the Club.
