This year’s calendar of events will include an outing to Hyde Lake at SheIby Farms, Memphis for canoeing, sailing and a picnic.  If you enjoy traveling by boat, then check out our planned trip to the WC Handy Festival, Florence AL, July 27/28 or our Raft-Up party for September 8th.  You may encounter some of our members while they are out and about enjoying Pickwick Lake.  Be on the lookout for our burgee!

June 2nd Pool Party will feature delicious seafood gumbo courtesy of our members.  Our Cookout /Auction and the annual Christmas Party also provide time for the members to socialize and form lasting friendships.

Our dinner meetings are another source of entertainment.  We share a delicious meal and listen to interesting speakers.   The topics aren’t limited to boating but instead encompasses a wide variety of topics, such as cruising the Antarctic, boating western Canada, and on-board medical emergencies to name a few.

If you are interested in joining us for any or all of our meetings, please contact Barbara at bridge@memusps.org for more information.
