Lunches for Wild Oyster Regatta

The Club will be offering $7/person make-your-own lunches on Saturday and Sunday.  You can pay during registration on Friday night or Saturday morning.

Typically, the Club provides nice cold cuts, bread, lettuce, tomatos, onions, mayo, mustard, chips, a cookie and a bottled water.  A bag to keep it all dry and a napkin are also included.  The specifics might vary, but you know it will be good.

If you prefer, there are plenty of other places to get sandwiches or other food.  The Publix grocery store is particularly well known for good fair.
