President’s Corner March 2019

Greetings fellow Skalleagues

WHO DONE IT?? The mystery of who gagged Biff with a spoon was solved at our SKAL Dinner this month. The setting was The Bay Club at Westshore Yacht Club and we had a great time. This 80's themed event was entertaining and interactive.

The evening started with passed appetizers of crab cakes, lobster empanadas and other delicacies. The open bar was very popular by our members dressed in their best 1980's interpretations. Dinner was spectacular and included Roasted Pork Loin and Truffle Mushroom Risotto. Kudos to the Chef, Staff and our Hostess/SKAL Member, Julie Cortina.

Congratulations to Angel Hubayka on winning the 50/50 cash drawing and in honor of her Mom Dina (who was ill) donated the winnings back to SKAL. Other Raffles were won by Richard Nicoleit de Andrade (first-time guest) from, Carol Eaves and Karin Donadeo.

Our next meeting will be Monday, April 08, 2019 at Zoo Tampa, at Lowry Park in Tampa. It promises to be great fun for everyone.

You can register at and check out all of our event photos at See you all next month!!
