About 33 PYC members made the trip to Fontana, Wisconsin on August 19th to enjoy lunch at the Abbey Springs Yacht Club. What a beautiful setting! ASYC is housed in a lovely building with a very nice restaurant and bar, fire pit area, private beach and a marina.
There were several officers from ASYC there to welcome us as we arrived, including PYC’s Fred Masco. He and wife Laurie were our hosts for the day, and we really appreciated the fact that they arranged for us to enjoy this beautiful facility. Our tables were set with fresh flowers and our view out the windows was of Geneva Lake.
Vice Commodore Laura Fulton was ready with a PYC burgee for the traditional burgee exchange. Our burgee display will now include one from the Abbey Springs Yacht Club, and we hope our PYC burgee will be displayed as well.
After a delicious Caprese salad with crusty bread, it was time for a “design your own” and made-to-order pasta lunch. There were two chefs manning four burners, somehow keeping everyone’s order straight. We could each choose from three pastas and about 20 different meats and vegetables and three sauces to customize our lunch. Plates of cookies, brownies and other treats were passed around each table. Now, don’t you wish you would’ve been there?
Several members hung around after lunch and enjoyed the Abbey Springs Yacht Club’s outdoor area. A very enjoyable day and well worth the trip. Thanks again, Fred and Laurie Masco!
