Dockfest 2010 an evening to remember

Michael Dunn's tall display of blue lights dominates the night scene at Fairport Yacht Club but the best-decorated-boat award went to Larry Debono for his sweet treatment of Suite Fifteen. Click on any image for a larger view.

More than 200 members and guests attended Dockfest 2010, the Fairport Yacht Club's annual summer pig and beef roast and dock party.

A great time was had by all, largely thanks to a fleet of volunteers led by Molly MacFadyen, FYC's capable secretary-treasurer, and the roast crew under the command of James Simpson.

It took a little longer to roast the pig to perfection but James Simpson and his crew did a great job.

One guest went home ecstatic when he was allowed to collect all the crackling pig skin that others shunned.

The final numbers are still to be tallied but Dockfest turned out, again, to be an excellent fund-raiser for FYC.

The club's share of the 50/50 draw was $240. Marinus VandenBrink won the other $240 in the 50/50. The Wooden Sticks Golf Course auction raised $400. Jim and Carol Simpson won the prize donated by Dreamcast Marine Canvas.

Larry Debono won the award for best decorated boat.

More than 200 members and guests partied into the night at Dockfest 2010.
