A Word on TPYC Workday

Workdays at TPYC are an essential part of your membership and your participation is an essential part of the ongoing success and growth of this club. This tenet was so important that the bylaws drawn up by the original members state that members choosing not to participate in the Club’s annual workday could be assessed a fine by the Purser.
