Outings & Events
Sunday, August 11th, 2013
Near perfect boating conditions for about 40 Boat Clubbers on 11 boats! Those who brought their jammies and spent the night before have double the amount of stories to tell. Nothing better than partying in such a beautiful spot with good friends. A beautiful weekend right down to Linda Newton's table centerpiece (pic below) aboard Blue Waters. Lots of laughs and great boating stories were shared by all...some not repeatable here...LOL.
This party had a little bit of everything going on: laughing, eating, more laughing, a floating salad bar and even a gas-powered blender demonstration courtesy of Hippy Industries.
Saturday, March 23rd, 2013
What's a little sea fog among friends anyway? Didn't put a damper on the fun that was had by all!
Spring Intracoastal Waterway Clean-up
Saturday, March 16th, 2013
Once again, over a dozen members of our IRB Boat Club donated their time on a Saturday morning to participate in Keep Pinellas Beautiful. We used our boats and man/womanpower to clean up a section of the ICW from the Belleair Causeway to the Narrows. "The event always turns up some interesting stuff," said Boat Club President Bob Griffin. One participating group collected enough wood from Bird Island near 18th Avenue to build a small dock!
Sunday, February 24th, 2013
There is no better way to spend a Sunday morning than taking a nice, relaxing cruise on our beautiful waters and enjoying one of the best Sunday brunches on the planet. Mmmm...Mmmm...Mmmm.
February Boat Club Meeting/Happy Hour
Thursday, February 21st, 2013
What an action-packed meeting our February Boat Club Meeting was! Terry Fortner, whose grandmother authored Yesteryear I Lived in Paradise, and our own Boat Club Member John Thayer mesmerized us with stories about Caladesi Island...then and now...after which Florida Gulf Coast Center for Fishing Executive Director Jim Simons updated us on exciting happening at the center.
Boat Club Trip to The Pub
Saturday, January 19th, 2013
The Pub's wonderful docks and the warm hospitality of Steve and his staff combined with great food/drink make this Boat Club outing a must...year after year. Smiles everyone!
