Party Planning

This document outlines party planning responsibilities. Please read this carefully! Ask if you have any questions!

The current hospitality chairs are Carla Murphy & Alex Vogt

Every Sunday after racing, MFA holds a social for the fleet, complete with snacks and beverages. For 2021, the social will be held outside, under the dockhouse roof.

This is made possible by weekly volunteers who sign up to plan, provide, setup, and clean up the social, and by other members who volunteer to help with set up and breakdown.

All MFA members are required to volunteer for Party Planning at least once during the season. Thanks for helping out and doing your part!

What does a party host do?

Because the party is held outdoors in breezy conditions, Paper plates, cups and plasticware are not allowed to prevent trash from blowing around. It is the responsibility of the party host to make sure that the outside area is completely clean at the end of the day.

  • Snacks and drinks: bring a few six packs of beer, other beverages if you like, pre-portioned snacks like chips, pretzels, fruit, sliced/cubed cheese, crackers, cookies, etc

  • Pre-race: Leave snacks and beverages in your car or deposit in clubhouse if you are travelling by train

  • Post-race: Set up a table with snacks and beverages (no disposable utensils, plates, cups) under the overhanging roof next to the dockhouse. The parking lot area must remain clear and cannot be blocked.

  • Cleanup: before you leave: Throw out all trash, return table to boathouse, remove any glass or aluminum cans from Beach Point premises for recycling - If you aren’t driving, somebody who is will volunteer to remove recycling

The outdoor set up required this year is more physical than years past - MFA members are expected to volunteer to help with set up!
