IYC members are always finding ways to get together. If you have an idea for an event you would like to run fill out the IYC event form and let the festivities begin! The facility is also available for private events.
Upcoming IYC Events
Join other IYC rowers and paddlers for a day trip from the club to Indian Beach and back (3.5 miles each way) on July 29. We will plan to leave the club at 11am and head up the bay against a flooding current. That should get us to Indian Beach by 1pm, just in time to have a picnic and do some swimming, sunbathing, and lounging about. We will likely head back around 3pm (high tide) and arrive at the club by about 4pm, depending on the wind.
Please email Jonathan Thomas (email@example.com) if you are planning to attend so that additional info can be provided as we get closer to the event.

About the talk -- Chris Longaker:
All - Jessica Zitter MD, MPH has agreed to give IYC her presentation-talk-documentary for free on Saturday May 12, 2018 at 7:30pm following the open house. I highly recommend that you visit her web site jessicazitter.com to discover more about her and her very very important message on how to best navigate the ICU; how to best protect your rights as a patient; the need to have a patient advocate all to ensure that your wants (quality of life) or the preferences of your loved one are followed and protected. Jessica's book "Extreme Measures" relates the story of the beginning of palliative care by physicians in the ICU and in other specialties as well. Palliative care prioritizes the patient's values and preferences in a an environment where the default approach is the rote use of technology. While we might all agree that this is not your fun topic, let alone not often talked about, it is a certainty and it is a topic that informs and educates us all on an event we all must experience. Doctor Zitter is a Stanford Graduate; Case Western School of Medicine graduate and she is a fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine at UCSF. She is double-boarded in two specialties - critical care and palliative care. Her book "Extreme Measures" is a great read. Her documentary "Extremis" was Oscar nominated. We attended her presentation last month and were awestruck and blown away by her and her message. I have been in conversation with MGH, North Coast Alliance, Drs Barton, Duncan(s), Schecter and others who all endorse what she has to say and that what she has to say will be well received. What I need are some volunteers to help organize the promotion of this event, the handling of reservations, and a focus group so that we make the best of this rare opportunity. If you can help out in the planning and or footwork promotion that would be teriffic. Some of you may have had personal anecdotes as have I, and to know that some one out there is making a difference so that the patient's desires, preferences and choices have priorities and are to be considered is long overdue. She is a force. So, please join me.
Depart IYC at 12pm
We got rained out in April, but we're trying again on Saturday, May 12! Join other rowers and paddlers from the club for a day trip to Shell Beach with a pot-luck picnic for lunch. We’re planning to push off from the club at 12pm and head up the bay (about one mile). Bring lunch for yourself, and even something to share if you'd like, and we'll enjoy a meal on the beach together. Low tide is at 4:45pm (+0.6 ft), so we'll probably leave the beach by 3pm to head back to the club. For anyone wishing to cover more distance, feel free to work the pot-luck lunch into your day’s plans and just meet us at the beach. Contact Jonathan Thomas (email@example.com) if you are planning to join us or if you have any questions about the plan.
Bar opens 5.00PM - Music and mingle accompanied by Argentine guitarist Marcelo Puig.
Dinner at 6.30PM
More music with Marcelo Puig immediately following dinner - put on your Tango dancing shoes!
Tickets are $25 online or by check to Steve Caletti - or pay at the door. We would love to have you!
If you have a row boat, kayak, or other human-powered craft, please join us on Sunday, April 15 for a day trip to Shell Beach with a pot-luck picnic for lunch. We’re planning to push off from the club around 10am, make our way up the bay about 1 mile against the weakening current, and enjoy a picnic lunch on Shell Beach around noon. High tide is at about 1pm, so we’ll head back to the club in the early afternoon. For anyone wishing to cover more distance, feel free to work the pot-luck lunch into your day’s plans and just meet us at the beach. Contact Jonathan Thomas with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
