    Register all adults first, hit confirm, pay or choose Invoice Me and then go back and add a new registration as a guest for children because the price is different.  Pay once online after you have done all adult and child registrations or pay at the event on Saturday evening.  In order to pay at the event, choose the option Invoice Me at the end.  Essentially the website can only register one person at a time and the second person (the spouse) has to be added as a guest.  One strategy is to choose Invoice Me and then pay the invoice at the end if you have several different registrations (sides, kids, lobster, steak).


     

    The annual lobster and steak dinner will again be lovingly prepared at the water's edge by our fleet of past commodores.  Event is open to SYC members and their guests.  First Bake will be served at approximately 7:00. The second bake will be served at approximately 7:45.  Children's dinner consists of hot dog or hamburger with same side dishes as adults, except no clams or mussels.

    Cost:  Lobster dinner $TBD, Steak dinner $TBD, Childrens dinner $TBD, Sides only-$TBD.  


     

    Note:  For this website consider spouses and children to be guests for purposes of registering.  Dinner orders close at noon on Friday, August 3.
