You can use any caterer you like, or no caterer. You can use the CYC kitchen on our lower floor - if you do use the kitchen and/or CYC kitchen tools, at the end of the event the kitchen must be cleaned and any CYC kitchen tools must be hand washed and run through the sanitizer.
The main event space and bar on the upper floor is wheelchair accessible via a ramp from shore. There are wheelchair-accessible marina bathrooms 200 feet from the clubhouse near the V Dock sign, and renters are given a fob that grants access to those bathrooms.
The clubhouse’s own bathrooms on the lower floor, down a flight of stairs, are not wheelchair accessible. There is a back door on the lower floor, but there are three steps up from the dock to that back door.
You will need event insurance - there are two ways you can get it:
A. If you have homeowner’s insurance, you can call your insurance company and get an event insurance policy that matches our requirements. (Your insurance may vary.)
B. You can buy event insurance here: www.theeventhelper.com. Follow the requirements in CYC’s rental agreement and easily purchase the policy online. We’ve done some simulations based on common CYC rentals and we estimate that insurance will cost roughly $90-150 depending on the number of attendees.
Beverage service is an optional charge of $2 per person (our bartender will track the number of people).
Beverage service includes:
- CYC’s recyclable plastic drink cups - 9 ounces (wine), 12 ounces (cocktails), and 16 ounces (pints - beer)
- Ice from our ice machine
- Drinks from our soda gun - tonic, club soda, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and Sierra Mist
Any other beverage items, and all alcohol, must be provided by the renter. If you do not choose beverage service, you will need to provide your own cups, ice, and mixer.
