For many of the Marco Bay Yacht Club members this past Tuesday night was a return to the good old days of “Dine and Dash,” but with a twist.
Judy and Larry Sacher hosted the June “dine-a-round” for MBYC; instead of dining and then dashing, the pre-dinner activities involved a brief gathering at the Sacher’s house, where teams were formed with a blind draw of playing cards, making up teams of four, each with two females and two males. Drivers from each team were chosen and once the logistics were explained, including the fact that as a team reached it’s destination, a picture of the team at the location was to be texted to the Sachers, the teams departed with a bag-full of clues that would lead the team to various locations around Marco. Each participant was told to bring four one-dollar bills, in exchange for which some of the destinations would give them another clue. Among the participating Marco Island businesses: Marco Movies, Philly Grille, Sweet Annie’s, and Marco Golf and Garden. Other locations included Veterans Community Park and one of the local supermarkets where the participants were required to spell out Marco Bay Yacht Club using items from the market’s shelves or produce areas. The final clue led them to a phone number, which would advise them where dinner was being served. The Tokyo Inn did a great job accommodating everyone, and the pictures were shown in a continuous loop while dinner was served.
The Marco Bay Yacht Club has year ‘round activities, including monthly cruises, day trips for those who do not have sleeping accommodations on their vessel, and on the last Monday of each month we hold a Monday Madness at CJ’s on the Bay.
