CCYC Brunch and Sock Burning

Effingham Manor Winery
Nokesville, VA
April 9, 12:00 noon - 3:00 pm

Mike and Bev Davis, Ayewash

Join us at our winery, Effingham Manor and Winery, for the CCYC Flag-raising Brunch and Sock Burning. (Location)

Upon arrival, we will meet at the Manor House to socialize with a glass of sparkling. When everyone is there, we will move to the Barrel Room in the Event Center for a five-course, wine-paired brunch:

Burning our winter socks will follow lunch, weather permitting. Sock burning is not a widespread or long-standing nautical tradition. It seems to have originated in the Chesapeake Bay area in the last few years. The winter around the Bay area is unpleasant for many and, for CCYC, is regarded as a calamitous error on the part of Mother Nature. It means four to five months of dry-docked boats, vacant marinas and winds wasted on furled sails. A sailor wearing socks during the winter has all the symbolism of shackles to a prisoner. No one wears them in the summertime and a sure way to herald warmer weather is to char the dreaded things to ash.

Cost is $30 per person. You can pay with a credit card using our online account or by check.

If you want to pay by check, make it payable to M.E. Davis and mail it to:
    Mike Davis
    7030 Balmoral Forest Road
    Clifton, VA 20124

Please RSVP by April 5.
