The band "Spill the Wine" played for us at the Commodores' Ball.  They sent us the following note:

Last night we had the privilege of performing for the Commodore’s Ball at the Alameda Yacht Club. I don’t know a lot about boats but the people that love them are really fun. The party theme was Casino Royale and it was the bomb. We played a long set and enjoyed some great martinis at the bar (shaken not stirred of course). We want back on and the crowd was dancing and we were all having a ball together. As it got near break time Kelly said, “lets play it out”. Mind you, a lot of musicians wouldn’t go for that. But we did, we played two hours straight. In a little shack on the water, the band crammed on the little dance floor alongside the dancers. Just partying and having fun. Toward the end one of the members comes over with w big pitcher of ice water and poured water for us. It was just a little moment of kindness and thoughtfulness. Then another member came over to offer beer as well. It wasn’t a big convert hall and we aren’t big rock stars. Just the magic of music. We are SO GRATEFUL to the AYC and all of our friends who support our efforts to entertain you and put a little sparkle in your day when you see us. 

The Commodores' Ball this year honored outgoing Commodore John Dovano and incoming Commodore Forest Reed. (photos curtesy of Jay Warren, decorations for the event by Dorothy Mueller).

The Pirate Party was quite a blast (literally) and very well attended with not only many of our own members in attendance but guests from the Sea Breeze YC, Treasure Island YC, and the San Pablo YC as well. Forrest served his famous Salmagundi Stew, dancing music was provided by the "Fell Swoop" Band, and Forrest rocked the whole neighborhood by firing off his "black Powder" canon at least four times!  Great time was had by all!
