Yacht Port Cartagena Community Fiesta Day
Sunday 28 October 2018
12:30 – 15:00
Followed by BBQ at 15:00
Everyone in the YPC community is welcomed to attend the inaugural Community Fiesta Day!
The purpose of the day is to introduce you to the YPC Community, to share laughter, information and a beer or two in a relaxed atmosphere. Do please come along if you can make it – or just come along to the BBQ at 15:00.
We would like as many people to participate. If you cannot make it on the day, why not donate a bottle of something for the Bottle Raffle Stall, or perhaps bake a cake to donate to be sold on the day. Details are below.
Cakes, Bakes, Cookies & Muffins
We would love to receive your ‘cakes and bakes’ donations for selling on the day so please put the date in your diary to remember to buy those ingredients and top up your gas supplies in preparation. Cakes and bakes from all nationalities most welcome. Where possible please indicate ingredients used in case of allergies. Cakes can be dropped off from 11am on Sunday 28 October.
Raffle tickets will be on sale for the popular bottle raffle. We would like your donations please – bottles can be anything (as long as they are unopened and in date!) – wine, beer, Shampoo, Sauces, Vinegars, Olive Oil and such like. If you’d like to start donating now, you can drop off at any of the following boats:
Iolandra on F Pontoon
AWOL on C Pontoon
Tatsu on C Pontoon
Kuta of Carrick on I Pontoon
Do you have any boat items that you would like to sell? If you do, now is your chance by renting a space for just €2 per area. You can set up your area from 11am on Sunday 28 October. If you would like to enjoy the day and leave your items for sale, please contact email@example.com further information.
Are you a sewist? Do you crochet? Can you knit? Or, perhaps you have always wanted to learn a new craft? This stall will have a few crafty bits for sale made by the talented community and will also be an opportunity to see if there are enough people interested in starting a regular crafting group. If you already have some crafts you would like to sell then for just €2 you can rent a table. Set up time will be from 11am on Sunday 28 October.
Tug of War
What better way to meet new people than to team up and participate in a Tug of War! It is only a bit of fun and not to be taken too seriously. If you are interested in taking part there will be a sign up sheet in the book exchange hut.
Both children and adults are welcome to dress up if they would like to. There will be a prize for the best dressed child. Obviously dressing up is optional.
Four Legged Friends
Your furry four legged friends are welcome along and will be put through their paces for their cuteness and ability to sit on command – well not quite but prizes will be awarded to the winners of ‘The Best Six Legs’, ‘Waggiest Tail’, ‘Owners Who Look Most Like Their Dogs’ and ‘Best Trick’ (performed by the four legged participant, obviously). Just a note on dogs: please do understand that not everyone is keen on dogs. Well behaved dogs are welcome and remember please clear up after them should they drop a clanger.
A weekly BBQ is held at the marina. On Sunday 28 October, this will start at 15:00 (from then on the time changes to 14:00). Please bring along all your food, drinks, cutlery, cooking utensils, plates etc. Each person is asked to contribute €0.50 cents towards the running costs of buying the coals and lighters. At the end of each quarter, all excess money is donated to a local charity nominated by the YPC Marina Staff.
If you would like to get involved or if you have any queries or questions, please do email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you!
