(The I.L.Y.C. Social Events)
One of the best parts of becoming a member of the Indian Lake Yacht Club might just be the social events that highlight the season.
As if the sailing isn't enough, there is the Interlake sailors' steak dinner that usually begins the season social scene, the Highlanders' BBQ chicken dinners, theme dinners such as a Hawaiian Luau, the Cruiser sailors' Low Country Seafood Boil, and music and dancing under the pavilion. On quiet Friday nights, we might informally gather in the pavilion to share snacks, roast some marshmallows over the hearth fire and share a sailor's tall tale or a joke or two.
The Cruiser boats have a Summer Solstice "raft out" round June 20th where we sail out together, tie off to each other and share a favorite dish and whatever we bring as a main dish. In 2020, we were able to watch the St. Mary of the Woods fireworks after dinner and we will be doing the same this year (2021)! Thank you to St. Mary of the Woods!
In September we might celebrate with an Oktoberfest and live Polka Band or have a "Pirates Night Outing". Just never know.
It's more than just a place to go sailing...
It's a family gathering as well.

The Silent Auction items will be items donated by members and will be available for cash or check (no credit cards). The proceeds will be put toward the cost of the event with any extra going to the club!
Silent auction items should be dropped off at the clubhouse by November 1st if possible. We will provide a form for your name, item description, and starting bid suggestion if you would like to utilize it, your choice.
