          Dinner at Sea Sea Riders

On Sunday, March 10th the IEYC members and guests gathered at Sea Sea Riders for food and fun.  Sixteen of our members chose to take a beautiful boat ride on the Clearwater Ferry relaxing with red and white sangria.  A short walk to Sea Sea Riders and the fun began.  A chance to win $50,000 was the prize awarded to the three who mingled most!  With drinks in hand, smoked salmon dip, calamari, and fried avocado appetizers provided by Sea Sea’s, the group mingled trying to find others that shared their birthdays, color of shoes, and middle initial as well as those who vacationed outside the US in the past year and those who have 3 or more grandchildren.  Barbara Loubier was the winner with Joan Landreth and Mary Reinhardt closely behind.  Unfortunately, the lottery tickets they won did not pay off, but it was fun nevertheless.

 

Commodore Scott Moncrieff blew the fog horn to begin the evening at 6:30. He welcomed the five guests:

  • Kenny Guara was a guest of Sharon Foster

  • Sheila Wainwright and Art Gallery were guests of Harry and Carol Bickford

  • Bill Clarke was a guest of Barbara Gipson

  • Amanda Sandlin was a guest of Angie Traupman

 

Jim Ostrosky gave the invocation and dinner orders were taken.  Conversation and laughter filled the room.  The evening concluded with those riding the ferry back to Clearwater strolling back to the dock and others saying their goodbyes at the restaurant.
