*** All Club members who attend a Stand-up are required to host one time during each season, per the by-laws of membership***
Please select one Saturday night or Wednesday race day to host. Choose an empty spot on the sign up calendar, which is posted in the club and on this webpage, and contact the House Chair to confirm your date. DO NOT add or delete the number of hosts/host couples needed. Be aware the Stand-up calendar is updated periodically and your first choice may not be available. We will confirm your choice by return email.
HOPE TOWN SAILING CLUB STAND-UPs
SATURDAY EVENING 5:30 PM TO 7:30 PM WEDNESDAY RACE DAY 4:30 PM TO 6:30 PM
AS A GUIDELINE: Attendance at Stand-Ups, between November and January, average about 60 people. The busier months of February, March & April may have as many as 90 members/guests. They are hosted by 2 or 3 hosts/host couples.
Definition of Alternative Hosting: Another option is to arrange catering for your Stand-Up, “Alternative Hosting.” You are still responsible for the food to be delivered, set up for serving as well clean up at the end of the Stand-Up. There are great local restaurants that can help you make a great presentation with wonderful food.
Definition of Amnesty Hosting: Amnesty Hosting was originally set up to help those members with medical disabilities, physical restraints, or time restraints. Prior approval must come from the House Chair. A fee of $80 per member will be charged. Exceptions will be at the discretion of the House Committee. Amnesty funds will assure that every Sailing Club Stand-Up or special event is either hosted or funded.
Each host/host couple should plan to provide THREE SIMPLE APPETIZERS, not dinner. There are some tablecloths, utensils, serving dishes, cocktail napkins, dish towels and cleaning supplies in the kitchen. It is best to check out for yourself what is available before the week you are hosting. The key may be picked up at the Stand-Up prior to yours, or from the House Chair during the week. Kitchen facilities include two microwaves, stove, oven and sink. There is no refrigeration. HTSC provides two coolers for ice and two gallons of bottled water. Please DO NOT USE TAP WATER FOR DRINKING. Ice is to be picked up at Harbour’s Edge and bottled water from Harbourview Grocery; HTSC account for billing. Please notify the House Committee Chair/Vice Chair of your purchases. No other items are to be charged to the club account for your Stand-Up.
HTSC By-Laws Reminders regarding guest privileges:
1- Because of space limitations, at Saturday night parties, each member is restricted to one guest per member, except during February and March when each member is limited to one guest per month.
2- Members bringing guests should contact the host/hostesses for the evening and offer to bring an additional hors d’oeuvre.
Important Note: The House Committee is requesting that members who plan on bringing guests to stand-ups, to please RSVP the House Chair so that they know how many extra people will be expected. During the busy season, guests will be limited to 10-12 per stand-up in order to keep everyone comfortable in the clubhouse.
There is a beautiful Bahamas watercolor calendar on the bulletin board at the clubhouse, and the House Committee is asking that all individuals and groups needing to use the clubhouse for gatherings to please note dates/times on the calendar.
Thank you for your support!
