Your Bridge has been working hard to make the MYCBC experience the best it can be. If you can think of something we need to do or do better then please let us know. You can contact us individually under the about us tab at the top of the page.

It is with great sadness that I announce the departure of our long term Membership/Treasurer Ron. He has decided that 11 years is enough and he will be retiring at the end of the 2019 season. This will be a great loss to the club. Both because he is such a great guy and he has done an awesome job for us for all these years. It is time for someone to step up and fill his shoes. If you are interested in helping the club by filling in as Membership/treasurer, please contact the bridge to let us know.

The MYCBC Bridge wishes all members a

Happy and Healthy New Year

and as much time as you can possibly spend on your boat for 2019.

We look forward to the upcoming changes in the “Confidence Cruises” part of our Education Programs and finally all the great plans for next year that you can find in our 2019 CALENDAR under the About Us Tab.
