AHYC 2016-2017 Bartending List (Final)

posted Nov 18, 2016, 9:24 AM by Dave McKnight   [ updated Dec 9, 2016, 8:44 PM ]

Please see the AHYC Bartending List attachment.  A bridge member will be there to open the clubhouse at 7:00pm on most dates (Earlier for General Membership Meetings).  The bartender should arrive at 7:15pm and will receive instructions.  The bartenders are not required to bring food.  However, if you wish to, please let me know and I will send out an e-mail to the members...it seems to attract larger crowds.

General Overview:
Arrive by 7:15pm
Review Drink Prices and Bartending Procedures
Ensure all Guests Sign in using the guest book on the bar.
The bartenders should plan on staying open until at least 10PM.  However if no one is there, they may elect to close earlier.  If their are members that want to stay past 10PM, the bartender can brief them on the closing duties and had the responsibility over to them.

At the end of the night:
Put dishes in dishwasher, take out the trash and recycling, lock the beer cooler, lock the money and beer cooler key in the middle closet (top right shelf).  Vacuum if needed.  On most nights the members that close down the club will help with the cleanup.  Finally, ensure all of the lights are off and the door is locked.

The point of contact for bartending is the Vice Commodore.

Updated AHYC Bartending Schedule

posted Sep 5, 2015, 1:33 PM by Dave McKnight   [ updated Mar 7, 2016, 5:20 PM ]

AHYC Members,

     I have attached the updated AHYC Bartending Schedule.  I have made all the recommended changes and trades as of 5 Sept 2015.  It goes through October 2016.  There is currently one open slot for volunteers, make ups or new members to fill.  This schedule provides all of our members an opportunity to bartend about once a year.  Thank you for all the feedback on the draft version, please let me know if I missed anything or if you have any additional questions or concerns.  I have updated the AHYC Calendar to show the last name of the bartender each Friday.

1.  The Vice Commodore will send out an e-mail to remind everyone the month prior and then again at the beginning of the week that you bartend.
2.  If you can't bartend on that day, please try to trade dates with another member and send the Vice Commodore an e-mail notifying him of the trade (names and dates being traded).
3.  If you can't find a replacement or need to cancel at the last minute, please contact the Vice Commodore and he will find a replacement, take the duty or let everyone know the clubhouse will be closed.
4.  Please arrive NLT 7:15pm.  The Club Steward or the Vice Commodore will meet you, review the Bartending Rules and ensure you are ready.
5.  If you have to miss your turn at bartending, please let the Vice Commodore know as soon as possible...then try to volunteer when someone else needs to cancel down the road.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone.

AHYC Bartending Schedule (Aug 15 - Sept 16)

posted Aug 14, 2015, 3:20 PM by Dave McKnight   [ updated Aug 14, 2015, 3:49 PM ]

AHYC Members,

     I am attaching the AHYC Bartending Schedule.  It will start off next week (21 Aug) and go through Sept 2016.  I was trying to avoid having to go with a roster, but we were not getting the volunteers needed to keep it open each Friday.  This schedule provides all of our members an opportunity to bartend at least once a year.  I took the dates that people previously requested and plugged them in first and then went alphabetical after that.

1.  The Vice Commodore will send out an e-mail to remind everyone the month prior and then again at the beginning of the week that you bartend.
2.  If you can't bartend on that day, please try to trade dates with another member and send the Commodore an e-mail notifying him of the trade (names and dates being traded).
3.  If you can't find a replacement or need to cancel at the last minute, please contact the Vice Commodore and he will find a replacement, take the duty or let everyone know the clubhouse will be closed.
4.  Please arrive NLT 7:15pm.  The steward or the vice commodore will meet you, review the Bartending Rules and ensure you are ready.
5.  I will update the calendar on the webpage with the names of the bartenders by the end of Aug...By that time, most of the trading should have occurred.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone.
