On April 12 60 members of the Marco Bay Yacht Club traveled from Marco Island to the Rod & Gun Club in Everglades City for lunch.

Lunch was served on the screened in porch of the Historic Rod & Gun Club overlooking the Barron River. Frank Mulligan, the trip organizer, gave a brief welcome to everyone and later our LaMontagne addressed those present.

A good time, with good food and great friends, was had by all.

The club is open to residents who own a watercraft berthed on Marco Island, Isles of Capri, Goodland and as far north on Route 951 to include Fiddlers Creek. The watercraft must have an engine as its primary source of power and the owner has to be 21 or older. The goal is to have fun and promote safe boating.

The club’s First Mates group is active in various events. Our boating includes day trips and extended cruises to distant ports lasting several days to several weeks. We have four major social events each year and a “Monday Madness” on the last Monday of each month at 4:30 PM at CJ’s Star Bar at the Esplanade.
